A Cup Of Glee - Weekly Newsletter - Etiquette by Pooh

Welcome to the Blog for Fancy That!
We proudly call our blog “A Cup of Glee.”

This week’s Newsletter is all about the “Thank You” note and Pooh’s Etiquette. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy!

From “Pooh’s Little Etiquette Book”:

(You can buy the book by clicking on this link.)

Be sure to thank your host politely before you leave, and write a Thank You Note soon after. This is not only good etiquette but a good way to let your friend know that you arrived home safely.”
Of course in today's world, we do not send a "Thank You" to let our friends know we made it home, but an email or telephone call may do nicely!

Table Talk
(Manners and TableTop Tips)
From “Pooh’s Little Etiquette Book”:

Page 24 on Table Manners,

When it is time to eat, be careful when you sit down. What is a Resting Place to you, may be Lunch to someone else.”

If you go on a picnic with your friend, be sure to take a blanket to sit upon, and that way, you will be able to be lighted on the cloth, and watch the clouds roll by, ignoring the ants and other creatures below. Of course in the book, Rabbit and others are talking about the grass that you may be sitting upon, which could be a meal for some of Pooh's Friends. Enjoy your picnic!

The Butler
(Host and Hostess tips and Helpful Hints for planning your event)

This is all out the ending…the thank you. When planning and event, you simply cannot forget about the “Thank You” notes. If you are the invitee, you most certainly will want to think about the evening when writing your thank you.

The perfect format, with six rules for how to craft a well done “Thank You” not is here from the Morning News.

If you event is a shower or some soiree where you will be given a gift, plan your Thank You to match closely to your invitations. It is a nice touch when your guests equate the wonderful event with your Thank You Note.

Tiny Prints is a great resource when you are starting out. Once you hit their site, and see such unique prints like this picture,

You will be planning an event AROUND the use of a thank you, instead of the other way around.
Again, in The Morning News are some great ideas for writing that special Thank You.

As is quoted in the “Pooh’s Little Etiquette Book

In the Hundred Acre Wood and elsewhere, those who know how to write a proper letter are much respected and in great demand.”

Please do take the moment and impress your dear friend, and Pooh, too!

Wedding Bells
Tips for planning your Wedding)

From is a reminder of the most important item to remember: never, never, never (have I emphasized that enough?) never send a pre-printed thank you note after your wedding. Of course you can have your name, or other items "pre-printed", but you do not want the pre-printing to say "thank you for your lovely gift" that you do not mention the gift, or sign your name. A hand written note thanking your guest for the lovely Tiffany Box, or the Waterford Crystal goblet is a perfect touch. By keeping the "Thank You" note personal with the touch of hand writing, you are taking a moment and sending that perfect thank you note!

Why not try one of our favs of all time: Artistic Addressing!

Their tag line says it all: “Pushing the ‘Envy’ lope”.

Remember to leave enough time for Artistic Addressing to get your proofs to you and then to print the stock.

And enjoy!

Until our next post, please remember:
Suggestions tolerated, compliments always welcomed. Tell your friends, and visit often.

  1. They have really cute baby shower cards but I found three websites that have lots of unique baby shower invitations, personalized baby shower invitations and custom baby shower invitations cards at:

    I have ordered from all three for my pregnancy, baby shower and birth announcements and been very pleased. Take and look and see what you think.
