Tips to Host the Perfect Retirement Party
Posted By: 
Tuesday, February 27, 2018

An employee or fellow colleague’s retirement is an important milestone that must be celebrated in style. Have you been given the big responsibility to plan a retirement party? No idea where to begin? We’ll help you!

Through a retirement party, a company can show its appreciation for the dedication and hard work of the retiree in their time at the company. Whether small or big, what a retirement party should reflect is career, character and interest of the retiree. The party should be such as it remains in the mind of everyone forever. But how can you plan such a party? We’ll tell you some important tips to host the perfect retirement party.

1. Inviting the Right Audience

The starting point for any party is the guest list and the same goes for a retirement party. If you’re hosting the party at the workplace after the regular shift, make sure to notify all the staff in time so that necessary arrangements can be made. A good idea is to send an invitation to a guest of honor like the retiree’s family, partner or clients to make the event more special.

2. Deciding on the Kind of Event

Consider what would be best for the retiree, your company and the staff attending the event. The time, location and theme are all important to consider and should match the preference of the guests. Should you go for a dinner, a lunch buffet or a drinks event? Although no rules apply to someone’s retirement party, but you must align it with the lifestyle and interests of the retiree.

3. Special Moments

You might also want to plan a special moment for the retirement party. After all, the retiree is leaving and it might be the last chance to honor their accomplishments. Talk to your boss and managers for special honors. Other ideas include toasts from staff, a farewell speech, a book with well wishes or a presentation with the key moments of the retiree in the company. Retirement gifts by colleagues should never be forgotten.

4. Pay Special Attention to the Food

Without food, every party is incomplete and a good menu is essential for all corporate events, so you don’t want to miss it in the retirement party. The theme, amount and way food should be served depends on the theme of the party, the total guests and the needs of your company. No matter what the style is, the food must be delicious and should satisfy all the guests. And don’t forget the drinks!
A cake is a good idea to end the party on a high note and give everyone something to remember for a long time.

The Final Word

Every corporate event, including an employee’s retirement party requires planning and perfect execution. If you don’t possess the right skills to plan the perfect retirement party or any other corporate party, call Raffel’s Catering! We can handle each and every specification for your corporate party and make sure that your guests have the time of their lives when they come to your event.
