Thank You Messages for the Surprise Birthday Party

Only once or twice in our lifetime do we have a surprise birthday party planned in our honor. Even though suddenly being the center of attention might be a bit uncomfortable at first, the kindness and thoughtfulness of the friends and/or family who planned it cannot be denied. Whether a small gathering or a large gala event, the people who put forth the time and expense to honor us deserve an appropriate gesture of gratitude. We may decide on a small gift of appreciation. Certainly, we must pen a personal “Thank You” note, from the heart, expressing how much they mean to us and how much their efforts touched us. Thinking of the place these folks occupy in our lives, the history we share and the affection we feel toward them will inspire the words. Following are a few examples of such a note.
