Whether the host took the time to cook the meal, hired someone to cook it for him or hosted a meal at a restaurant, a thank-you note is an appropriate way to express appreciation for being included in the meal. A thank-you note lets the host know his hospitality was appreciated and that the guest enjoyed himself. The guest needs to send the note as soon as possible after the event, complimenting the food, company and entertainment, if applicable. A handwritten note is preferred.

    How do you end a letter to someone you know?

    A:

    An appropriate ending should have a closing statement that wraps up the letter's contents in a positive manner and follows with a complimentary closing appropriate for the person's relationship with the recipient, the occasion and what type of letter it is, notes Emily Post. For example, a business letter to someone may end with a more formal closure like "sincerely yours," "regards," "truly" or "best regards." A less formal letter might use a closing like "have fun," "adios," "peace out," "take care" or "bye for now."
