How To Write A Thank You Note

In this day and age, who doesn't need to know how to write a Thank You note? So here are a few tips...

Be as personal as possible- Even if your handwriting is akin to a second graders, notes should never be typed. Always use your own stationery and not one of those folding cards with the words "Thank You". EH.

Don't hold back - A thank-you note is not the time to be understated. Go on, ramble on a bit in a stream of conciousness.

Dinner-party etiquette - A good note should recall some wonderful moment from the evening- the divine chicken, the wonderful company, etc...

Step it up if necessary - There are times when a note is just not enough. If someone throws you a dinner party, send some wine in advance or some flowers with the thanks.

Hope these little tips help, taken from etiquette guru, Marilyn Berger.
