lsgcp 150x150 Retirement Party IdeasIt used to be that retirement parties were somewhat sedate affairs held at restaurants. There was usually a toast given, cocktails were served, and a meal was eaten. And there ended the party. Not so anymore. Today’s retirees are young and hip and ready to start the next phases of their lives. Many are going into a second entrepreneurial business of their dreams or planning to spend lots of time with their grandchildren traveling and exploring the world. So when it comes time to plan a retirement party, think big. You may be a coworker throwing a party for a retiring boss. Or you may be a son or daughter throwing a party for mom or dad. Whatever your relationship to the retiree, you can make it fun and memorable. Hire a band. Who says you all have to sit around the tables in quiet whispers? Read more

Most people don’t retire and sit home, so you want to kick off their new future with a festive party. If you’re planning the party, you’ll want to make it memorable, fun, and lively. Here are some ideas to get you started. Think about the venue. Where will you hold it? Will it be at a restaurant? A dinner cruise? A country club? Someone’s home?

You can make that very elegant and creative as long as you have arrangements in case of rain (like a big tent). Next, decide how many people you will invite. Is it going to be everyone from the office? Hundreds of friends and Read more
