Thank You Note Etiquette and Wording

So, it's the aftermath of your wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, baby shower, or getting out of prison party. You have dozens of wonderful gifts, but need a little help writing thank-you notes. That's where Luscious Verde, purveyor of fine custom stationery, steps in with our handy-dandy guide to writing thank-you notes. We know how time-consuming it can be, so hopefully this will help. Just choose one phrase from each group (as well as a closing), and before you know it, a sincere thank-you note will be written and ready to send. Remember, according to the rules of etiquette, thank-you notes should be send out within 30 days of your special occasion.
