Category: The Art of Toasts

The practice of toasting has evolved from simply raising cups of libations to include short speeches evoking goodwill and good fortune for the recipient, often the reason for the gathering. These toasts are usually witty, occasionally humorous and usually equal parts accolade and banter directed at the celebrant. Toasting is appropriate for most occasions and even more so for happy events.

Toasting is an expression of positive thoughts of a person on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and retirement parties. It is a poem and a prayer. It is a blessing and a boast. The toast itself should be worded just right to capture the importance of the occasion without overwhelming the recipient. Here you will find a compilation of some of the most inspiring toasts for those special occasions.
