If you've ever thrown a party, or helped plan one, than you know how much work it can really be. From organizing the venue, picking out the party supplies, sending out the invites, arranging the cake and putting on the catering, party planning can be a bit like trying to tame a wild animal! So it only makes sense, that after attending a party someone else has hosted , especially if it was laid on in your honour, that you would want to acknowledge the work that they have put into the party and thank them.
There are thank-you cards that you can buy that have pre-written messages in them, if you are looking for a fast, easy way to say thanks. Just make sure to jot your name down so that they know that it is from you. If you want to be a little more personal, you could make your own thank you cards, either by hand with construction paper and cut outs, or you could use your computer to print one off. You can make them more personal that way, putting in your own pictures of yourself at the party. Even better would be a picture of you and the host together, having a great time. Add a personal handwritten note about the fun you had. This shows your host that you appreciated their efforts.
If you want, you can send a small gift, to emphasize your appreciation. A good idea for a gift would be a gift bag with things like scented candles, or lotions. Chocolates and flowers are always a popular choice. For me though I like to send a balloon gift. It has none of the calories of chocolate and lasts far longer than most flower bouquets. If I’m being completely honest however, a balloon gift makes a big impression for just a small spend, and in this economic climate I’m going to thank my party host in this inexpensive yet thoughtful way - froogle I think is what they call it.....
