Thank You Etiquette

As money gets a little tighter, more people are opting to invite friends over for dinner rather than going out to a restaurant.  It's actually more intimate, easier to talk and quite frankly can be even more fun!  If you have been invited to someone else's home for dinner, there are a few things you can do to be a great guest.

First, and it may seem simple, but RSVP!  Sometimes people get an invitation and they mean to call or send a reply, but times goes by and one can forget.  Best to reply as soon as you receive the invitation so that doesn't happen.  Second, it's always nice to bring a small gift... bottle of wine in a cute bag, set of coasters, wine stopper, some stationary - just a small thank you for the host or hostess.  It doesn't have to cost a lot, but it shows your gratitude.  They have put some time and money into preparing for the evening so arriving with a gift shows your appreciation.  And lastly, after the evening has come and gone, send a thank you note (handwritten via the mail is more personal than e-mail).  Best to send the note within a couple of days of the dinner.

At Divine Creations we understand the importance of showing one's appreciation all the while looking out for your wallet.  We have some great items that are very appropriate as thank you gifts and can be mixed and matched to suit your host/ hostess's style.  A wide variety of these gifts are under $5 each!  And mention that you read about these gifts in our blog and we'll give you a 5% discount.  Just my little way of saying thank you for reading!
