Celebrating Retirement in Style: 5 Unique Party Ideas

Retirement celebrations have earned a reputation as an antiquated office event. Oftentimes, this reason for celebration quickly feels forced – failing to truly recognize the accomplishments of the guest of honor! At Stokely Event Center, we believe that every celebration – including retirements – can be fun and exciting. 

One of the best ways to celebrate retirement in style is to choose a unique party theme. Long gone are the days of the dimly-lit office lunch party! Here are five of our favorite retirement party ideas:

1. Take a Step Back in Time

Many times, an individual has been with a company for decades leading up to their retirement. Do a little research on when your guest of honor had their first day on the job, Plan your retirement celebration as a step back in time to that decade – if you’re lucky, you may get to host an ‘80’s or ‘90’s themed party!

2. Celebrate for a Cause

Everyone has a cause that they are passionate about. What better way to honor the lifetime accomplishments of your newest retiree than to raise money for their favorite charity?! The options here are truly endless – from a 5K walk/run to a golf tournament to a chili cook-off – get creative! Ask the partygoers to honor the man or woman of the hour by participating in raising money for the cause.

3. Pick a Hobby

Whether your retiree already has a hobby or not, it is no secret that recent retirees are often searching for a way to spend their free time. Plan a retirement celebration that features possible hobbies at different stations. For example, set up a station for golfing, reading, cooking, exercising, or any other hobbies that come to mind.

4. Make It Memorable

While the best celebrations have some element of fun, it is also important to take a moment to honor the accomplishments of the recent retiree. Be sure to set aside some time to honor their years of hard work. Ask if longtime co-workers or friends would like to say a few words in their honor, or put together a quick video with some of the favorite memories from over the years!

5. Involve Others

Oftentimes, retirement celebrations are an office event, with no outside involvement. It is important to remember, however, that there are countless friends and family members who have contributed to the success of your retiree! Surprise the guest of honor by inviting some of these pivotal individuals to share in their celebration – the more the merrier!

  2. Panic! at the pothole: Once upon a time I had a friend that was going to a Panic! At The Disco concert and she promised me she would face time me so that I could watch with her. So she messaged me at like the middle of the night telling me to answer her FaceTime call but I was at my neighbors house (which also happened to be my cousins house) so I started running out the door and my sister followed me behind and was chasing after me. She asked me where I was going so I started running as fast as I could screaming “WE HAVE TO GET HOME, IM NOT GONNA MAKE IT! I NEED TO SEE, WHY CANT I SEE!?!” Keep in mind that it’s like midnight right about now but I’m running and halfway through screaming. I stepped inside a pothole in my neighbor’s lawn and completely fell in mud but I got right back up and kept running, muddy as hell, trying to get to my house while my sister was dying from laughter behind me. That’s not even the sad part, the sad part is my friends phone died so I just sat there with mud all over me at the dining room table staring at my blank phone just waiting. I waited for almost two hours, refusing to take a shower even though the mud was starting to dry up. This was two years ago and to this day every time my sister sees the pothole she starts dying from laughter.
