Some time during the next day to two, send your host a little note thanking him again for the tea party. Write your note by hand and be as specific as possible. You can comment on any aspect of the tea party that you enjoyed—the food, the environment or the company. Write your note in such a way that your host will feel truly appreciated. After all, simple kindness is the essence of afternoon tea.
Sample Thank You Note
Here is a sample thank you note to send after a tea party. Your own note of course will focus on the particular things that you enjoyed at the tea party you attended.
Thank you so much for including me in your afternoon tea party. You went to a lot of work to take us all on a little trip to Italy, and I certainly appreciate all your efforts. It had been ages since I had eaten home-made biscotti, and I had forgotten how good they are until I tasted yours. It was also great to see Dominic and Maria; I really enjoyed reconnecting with them.
You’re a great host, and I am truly grateful for your hospitality.
