Top Tips for Planning a Retirement Party

Retirement Party

If someone dear to you is fast approaching their retirement, this is the perfect occasion to spring a surprise party. More than forty years have been spent working for a living and that magical day when you are officially retired is a very special milestone in every person’s life and with that in mind. Here are a few tips to help you organise the ultimate retirement party for that special person in your life.

  • Choosing a venue – If you have a large garden, look no further than affordable marquee hire in Perth from an established supplier that offers a comprehensive service. The good news is that a single provider has you covered for everything from a marquee tent to champagne glasses; BBQ rental along with tables, chairs and even a dance floor can be added to the package; the only alternative is to hire an established venue where you will find all you need.
  • Make it a surprise gig – There’s no better time to spring a surprise than celebrating retirement; hanging up your gloves can be an emotional time. Especially if you have worked for the same company for most of your working life. It is no easy task to secretly arrange a party; keep things on a need-to-know basis and hopefully, the lucky retiree will be blissfully unaware until your spring your big surprise!
  • Consider a theme – As you know the retiree well, think about a theme they might like; are they into Sc-Fi? Perhaps they have fond memories of the 70s or 80s, this is an added bonus if the lucky person has a passion for something. If not, that’s fine too! Make sure the music is to everyone’s taste and the party will swing!
  • Ask guests to bring a small gift – Wait until the end of the party and you have yet another surprise, as guests form a line and present a small memento to the lucky person who is retiring. Don’t forget to hire a photographer/videographer to record the event, then you can send all attendees the images by email. An alternative is for the organiser (you) to ask for donations and you can present a gift card to the lucky person who is about to enter into their golden years.

  • Roast and toast – A roast and toast is when guests tell funny anecdotes concerning the retiree, which always brings the house down with laughter; most of the guests will have at least one amusing story to tell and the retiree would be encouraged to comment, of course.
  • Buffet table – This is without doubt the easiest way to provide food and drinks and the vendor would have several set menus to choose from, which is great. Make sure you have something for vegetarians and check whether vegans are among the guests.

So, start planning, draw up a guest list, choose a venue and get ready to celebrate that special someone’s first day of freedom. Click here for outdoor event permits and directives in NSW that you may have to apply for.
