Fun Retirement Party Ideas

By Wendy Fisher,

This page will be full of Fun 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.

 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.

Retirement Gifts

 One fun gift idea could be a personalized cartoon of the new retiree. For example, a golfer or Las Vegas vacationer may be presented as a personalized photo hand drawn as a cartoon. Check out Goofy Faces and you've got a unique retirement gift! 

Then you might do Goofy Gifts too!

You need some good jokes for retirement speeches, printed signs you can hang everywhere, funny stuff to keep the party rolling!   Let the laughter flow with these funny retirement jokes. The first one is the best! My personal favorite - grin!

Retirement Party supplies can set the tone! This is where a theme party might fit in, 

Retirement cake ideas here. Find one to make a Theme Retirement Party, or perhaps focus on the new retirees hobby! Get creative with the cake itself!
