For special events, such as a retirement party, personalization and creating the right aesthetic is key. We wanted the guests to feel as though they were entering into a sneak peek of Jorge’s world, by creating a party designed for his personality. We were approached by Suzanne, Jorge’s wife, to help throw a retirement party, unlike any retirement party their guests have ever seen. Of course, we were up for the challenge! Retirement parties are a time to celebrate years of accomplishments, raise a toast to those closest to you, and of course, a time to have a little fun!
We knew that Suzanne wanted to place an emphasis on humor, personalize the details on the decorations, and create an overall enjoyable experience for their guests. From the unique response card replies, tequila station, hilarious specialty cocktails, a tip box to “Keep Jorge Out of Suzanne’s Hair” and a cake topper that read “Under New Management (see spouse for details),” the details left their guests laughing and highly entertained! With the help of our amazing vendors, we were able to create a retirement party unlike any other!
Below are a few highlights from the special event.
