Retirement Party Catering
Who to Invite
The guest list of a retirement party can sometimes vary depending on if a family is hosting or if it’s an office party. No matter who is planning, we say mix your list with family, friends & co-workers! If possible, even consider people the retiree may have worked with or been close with at other companies or departments.
It’s time to celebrate a retiree’s past accomplishments as well as the future! Retiring is and always will be a significant milestone for most. If you’re planning a retirement party for a special person, it would be a great idea to share your stories with the retiree’s family, friends and co-workers. It’s easy to keep this simple.
Most traditional retirement parties involve speeches that honor the contributions of the retiree. Usually the person throwing the party gives a speech, but you can also ask bosses, employees, friends or family to say something. Retirement speeches should highlight the accomplishments of the retiree.
With a speech comes a toast & even a roast. A roast gives you and your co-workers an opportunity to gently poke fun at the retiree while keeping everything in good taste. Ideally a range of people from different aspects of the honoree’s life can each speak. The toast doesn’t have to be one and done. You can always include several co-workers or even managers to plan a toast of his or her own. If you want multiple people to offer a toast, it is always a good idea to meet with that person before the retirement party so that words can be prepared.

... other than Thanksgiving dinners cooked by my mother and my wife, the food was the best.
