Oprah Magazine gives us some great tips for post-party thank you notes. Just in time for the dinner party season….

Kelly Williams Brown, author of Adulting, has devised a formula for handwritten notes based on the gracious missives she once saw pinned to a sorority-house bulletin board. “Start with the word you,” she says, “because everyone likes to hear about themselves. Then talk about what the person did. Save your thank you for the end. In other words, Dear Heather, You are an amazing cook. Not only was your salmon outragueously delicous, but your home is just beautiful. Arthur and I cant stop talking about how much fun we had. Thank you so much for inviting us. 

Grab the September issue of Oprah magazine for the full story. Cheers!
