How about a fun 2 foot X 3 foot Retirement card (envelope too!)

Get everyone to sign it and make it a keepsake items for the new retiree!

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 they seem 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.
