Fun Retirement Party Ideas

This page is full of FUN Retirement Party Ideas, but don't miss the ideas here too: Retirement Party Ideas  -- some retirement parties are sentimental, but this page is for the FUN retirement parties!

When planning a retirement party, you must first take the new retirees wishes into consideration as they may have definite opinions on this.

To those not yet retiring, it's all fun... but to the new retiree, it's downright scary sometimes, please don't give them more anxiety.

If the new retiree seems a bit nervous about retirement, or if they aren't the funny type of person, keep the party to the minimal to honor and respect their feelings too.

 What type of party are you hosting?

  • Will be a small intimate affair or a huge lavish party?
  • Is this a retirement dinner or a munchies and desserts open house party?
  • Do you want to do a theme party?
  • How many will you invite?
  • Admission fee (dinners) or open house and everyone brings a dish like in office settings?
  • Is this formal or casual dress?

You want to ensure that the retirement party is as memorable as their long career. Do you invite past retirees? current employees? family/friends? Bringing everybody together is a perfect time to have a look back at a lifetime of work and good times.
