Ah, the Thank You card. I have such love for these cards. No matter what the occasion or the party, when guests attend, a thanks is in order – in my opinion at least. I find that it’s a small gesture that can really go a long way and really, who doesn’t like to get mail?

After sending my Thank You cards from our engagement party I thought I would share the three rules that I tend live by when sending:

1. Hand written – Hand written thank you cards take time, effort and go a lot father than an email. Living in a world that is so tech savvy, it’s nice to nod at an older tradition that I hope never dies.
2. Timely – Since being engaged I’ve questioned what the appropriate length of time is for sending Thank You cards.Searching for an accredited opinion, I consulted with Finishing School Etiquette Steward – Karen Cleveland, who gave me the scoop: “The lucky couple should send out thank you notes as soon as possible. Ideally, within days (weeks are good, months are pushing it) of receiving a gift or someone hosting a party for them.”
3. Adding your personal touch – This is my most favourite part of writing Thank You cards! Right now, I can’t quite seem to put something in the post without a hint of glitter tape that I found at the Paper Place. It’s just adds a little sparkle and fun!

    Thank you cards are indeed very nice to receive and when sent timely are a nice way to recognize someone doing something special for you.

    So much nicer getting a nice thank you card than bills in the mail!
