3 Tips for Planning a Retirement Party, Queens, New York

Retirement is a major life milestone, so you’ll want to ensure your friend or loved one has a memorable experience at their celebratory party. Creating a party to please your guests involves careful planning, so understanding what to do and not forget will help keep you organized. Here are some tips for picking out an event venue and planning a retirement party.

How to Plan a Memorable Retirement Party

1. Focus On the One Retiring

Be considerate of the guest of honor and remember to keep them at the focus of your party planning. Pick menu items you know they enjoy, decorations and a color scheme that suits their tastes, and music from all their favorite artists. If the party is a surprise and you’re having trouble figuring out any aspect of it, consult with other friends and family to get their input.

2. Select Speakers

This could be close co-workers, a spouse, children, or their siblings. If you plan on having several speakers throughout the event, consider hiring an MC to organize the schedule and keep your guests entertained.

3. Choose the Right Event Venue

Send out RSVPs to confirm how many people are attending the party so you can pick the right event venue to accommodate them. If you’re hosting a large crowd, ensure your venue has enough seating for everyone so they have a place to rest and eat. If you’re holding speeches or showing videos and slideshows, choose an event venue with audio/visual capabilities. Event venues often provide decoration packages, so discuss what is offered at your location before making a decision.
