Thank You Notes

Thank You Notes

If you are the type of people who like to send “Thank You Notes” (and lets face it, who doesn’t like receiving these), then I have a great idea for you, to give them that personal touch.

Thank You Notes are always seen as being a real pain to do, but the joy that you will bring by putting in just a little bit of effort, far outweighs the time it takes. You don’t need to thank people for individual presents, a simple thank you goes a long way.

It’s so easy these days to print simply cards on your home computer setup, that you just need to think about what picture to put on it. You could go for a simple piece of clip art, taken from the internet, that has probably been used by every man and his dog, but how much better would it be to make it unique, and easy to do…

How about taking a photo of the birthday child(ren) at their party, in their smart clothes before the party starts (so the clothes are at their best !!), and then use this image for your thank you’s. Even better, if you have an entertainer at the party, try to get a special photo with the birthday child, the entertainer, and their puppet, bunny rabbit, wand, or something that your child enjoyed from the show. This will make the photo that little bit more special, and will be a great keepsake for you and your family. Most entertainers are more than happy for you to take their photo, especially if it will help your family remember these special parties.

You will find that most people who receive these personalised, unique thank you’s will keep them as a special momento for years to come, making your party an even stronger memory for everyone who attended, and isn’t that one of the reasons for putting on the party? As a special thank you, why not have the birthday child send one of these printed cards to the entertainer.

Have the birthday child write the names of the person receiving the cards in pen, and then have them give the cards out, or let them post them in the mailbox. This gives them a sense of involvement, and ownership, and also instils in them how little it takes to brighten up someone’s day.

If you don’t send Thank You notes, then maybe this article will help push you to try it at your next party. I can guarantee that you will be bringing a smile to a lot of peoples faces if you do.
