Who Throws Retirement Parties?
There are a lot of different people who could throw a retirement party for someone who is leaving a company. The owners and management, family and friends – it all depends on the how and the why and the when that the person is leaving their career. Some people automatically retire at a certain age, while others retire after they are sure that there is someone who can “take their place” and keep things running smoothly. Still other retire from one career, only to launch another.
Some of the people who throw retirement parties at a South Coast event venue include:
- owner of the company
- management or administration for the business
- human resources coordinator for the office
- co-workers of the person who is retiring
- friends and family
- the person who is retiring
It might surprise you to see that it is sometimes the person who is actually retiring that throws the special social gatherings and special events to celebrate their retirement. Whatever the case may be and whomever is throwing it aside, the point is to make sure that you work with social event coordinators at the local banquet hall in Swansea, MA to ensure that you don’t leave out anything important in your plans.
Theme Ideas for a Retirement Party
When someone retires, it is often assumed that they will no longer work for the rest of their life. Unfortunately, in the current economy and retirement savings or investments being what they are, that is not always true. Find out the reasons for retirement and what the person will be doing after they retire so you don’t do a theme that might hurt their feelings, make them feel bad or be awkward. Never assume!
Some of the most popular theme ideas for a retirement party include:
- beach, vacation or cruise theme
- an over the hill theme, similar to a 50th birthday or other “old age” milestone
- sports related or hobby related theme
- formal black tie event
- timeframe or era that the person was born or started working for the company
Again, the more you know about the person of honor’s plans after retirement, as well as any interests, hobbies or dreams for the future, it will be much easier to plan an event. You can always do an event without a theme, but most social event coordinators will tell you that parties, social gatherings and special events that have a theme are often more successful than those that are just a generic party setting.
