You don't need to mention directly about their kindness. I would say 先日は大変ありがとうございました instead.
I've never seen the word 笑納 is really used in my life so far. どうかお納めください/お受け取りください is more common.

Very close, but the correct kanji is 合う.;)
I would say お口に合うといいのですが。 or お口に合えば幸いです。since it sounds more humble.
