General Retirement Party Tips


Retirement can be a bitter-sweet experience for many, as one faces the prospect of leaving behind career for the unknown.  Alleviate the retiree anxiety with a party to highlight his or her achievements. 

Invite friends and coworkers, as well as family.  Let each member leave a video message or make a toast to the retiree.  Jokes and gag gifts may often lighten the mood, so a roast can often be more appropriate than a formal event.  Don't limit the speeches to jokes; however, as heartfelt expressions of appreciation are most memorable.

Keep in mind the retiree's preferences and personality when planning party activities.  Shy guests of honor may prefer a dinner party, while others enjoy the spotlight.  

Display examples of the person's accomplishments as decorations, such as photos, trophies, certificates, etc.  Consider putting together a phot slideshow or video message from coworkers or friends.  Purchase a guest book for guests to write down notes and good luck wishes.
