2. Party Location
The event venue is where the element of surprise comes in. You should decide on a location that will totally catch the recipient off guard.
The choice of the event venue will depend on the level of formality of the company and the vibe that the person of honor is looking for. However, for a memorable retirement party and a lasting impression from the retiree, go for the most elegant and upscale location possible.
The locations will have all-inclusive features and amenities that are designed to cater to the retiree’s needs. Of course, this will all depend on the establishment. If you can’t book a large retirement venue, consider booking an outdoor pavilion or a private dining area in a restaurant.
This is where you can really let loose your imagination.
As mentioned, the décor will depend on the chosen theme. In addition to the usual decorations like banners, putting together photos and videos of the retiree is a great way to put a personal touch to the celebration. Have a video presentation that highlights the retiree’s years with the company.
If you are going to include photos from the retiree’s personal life, make sure that they are not embarrassing and don’t infringe the celebrant’s privacy.
