Dear [Recipients Name],
I was happy with you would invite me to be an attendee at the retirement party of Carrie. Thank you so much for your kind offer to pick me up from home, although I will already be located in Blackwood that day and can drive to the location of the party.
I do appreciate your kind thoughts in inviting me, and I can't wait to meet up with old friends again.

Further things to consider when writing acceptance letters to friends
Acceptance letters are a form of written communication exercised by people to accept a proposal or request formally. The purpose of these letters is to acknowledge your acceptance of the request at hand or express your readiness to do something. The simple act of replying in writing demonstrates a bright side of your character to those inviting. Some of the situations you might want to reply with an acceptance letter include admission requests, franchising opportunities and invite to meetings or celebrations. Proposals, job opportunities, privy membership invites, or speaking engagements may also require you to write an acceptance letter.
When writing acceptance letters, you should thank the person at the beginning of the letter and state how happy you are about accepting the proposal. Be sure to write the exact title of the proposal. Mention any needs, to your situation, for example, address and directions to the venue or agreed amount for charitable donations. If you are accepting an employment offer, restate the terms to show the other person you clearly understand them. Keep the letters as brief as possible and straight to the point. Where appropriate, inform the other person what is going to happen next.
Letters to Friends
Letters to friends are letters you write to people with whom you have a bond of mutual affection. These letters are like conversations and can be just about anything. They could be thank-you letters to thank your friends, congratulation letters to congratulate them, apology letters to say sorry, condolence letters to comfort the bereaved, etc. You could also write to your friends to share general information such as school and family news, what has been happening in your town, or just tell funny stories. Letters are special and show the other person that you are thinking about him/her. The recipient can keep the letters for years and read them over and over again.
Letters to friends are personal and are usually addressed to specific individuals. Since the recipient is a person with whom you have a close relationship, the salutation is more personal and less formal. Greet the recipient warmly and proceed to stating the reason for your letter. Share some information about yourself. Maintain a polite and friendly tone. End your letter on a note of anticipation to seeing the recipient soon or reading from him/her. You can also add a postscript for something you forgot to say.
