A farewell party is held for many occasions. It’s a great way to send off your co-worker, with great memories. You can throw a farewell party when someone leaves work, starting a new chapter in any capacity. Organizing a farewell party can take a bit of work. From planning, inviting, setting up, and honoring your co-worker, there’s a lot to do. Luckily, you can enlist the help of your co-workers, etc., to help you. With a bit of planning and teamwork, you’ll give your guest of honor a party to remember.
It will be hard for you to throw a fantastic farewell party on your own. But chances are you won’t have to. There should be plenty of people in your group who are more than willing to pitch in.
- Assign certain roles to people so that it’s easier to get everything done on time. You could assign one of your friends the task of getting decorations. Put someone in charge of the food. Maybe you have a crafty friend who wants to help you make that perfect memory book or gift.
- Dividing up roles will ensure that your party is the best it can be. And when it’s time to have the actual party you can focus on the guest of honor.
Decorate the party area to match your theme. You can have decorations that blend the past and the future together. For example:
- Have little clocks, timesheets, or similar work items for someone retiring. Additionally, think about including elements that your co-worker or friend has expressed excitement about when retired. Maybe this person has expressed a desire to sit on the porch and read books. Why not decorate a corner of the room to look like a porch? Add a nice chair and a side table with some books. This area can also be the guest of honor’s special party throne.
- Streamers are always good decorations. Get streamers in the person’s favorite colors, or ones symbolic of something to do with the farewell. You can even make streamers that have pictures of a map showing where your guest is leaving from and going to.
- Think about including a special area where you can place a book or card for everyone to sign and write a note. You can also tailor this to your theme. If your friend is moving overseas, maybe you get a bottle and small roles of paper. Then people can write notes on the paper and place the notes into the bottle.
Have little ships or planes for someone traveling overseas. Use colors that match the country your friend is leaving and the country your friend is going to. Maybe you divide the party area in half. You decorate half the area with colors and elements of your friend’s favorite things from this country. And the other half has colors and things that represent the culture of the new country.3.Organize the food:
Unless you’re planning a sit-down meal, finger foods are just fine. Try to choose food that you know the person who is leaving likes a lot.
- Small snacks, sandwiches, and desserts are great because these foods allow people to move around and mingle.
- On the other hand, a nice sit-down meal may mean more to your guest of honor.
- Use plates and silverware that match your theme.
- Get your friend’s favorite local food and/or food that depicts the cuisine of the new place your friend is going. Or, if you are having a farewell party for a co-worker, consider ordering food from your co-worker’s favorite restaurant near the office.
- Get your guest of honor’s favorite local beer and spirits if you are old enough to drink. Sometimes a cold beer from your friend’s favorite local brewery goes a long way.
4.Plan for speeches:
Organize people who might wish to give speeches.
- The speeches could talk about how great the guest of honor is. Center your speech around much this person means to you or how much this person has taught you. Ask those talking to keep it brief, to avoid dragging things out.
- Speeches can highlight any number of topics from funny stories to heartfelt remembrances and best wishes.
- Ensure that there is an opportunity for the person being honored to respond. But don’t make the guest of honor speak. As fun and happy as a farewell party can be, it can also be emotional and your friend may not wish to speak in front of everyone.
5.Get a farewell gift:
It is usual at farewell parties to present a gift or gifts to the person leaving.
- Think about both the person who is leaving and in what capacity. Your friend may get more enjoyment out of a memory board or book than something you bought. Additionally, think about where this person is going. If your friend is moving overseas, get a gift that is small or will even help the move.
- For retirement, there are traditional gifts from a company that an individual may receive. But you should also give the guest of honor something that commemorates the time and relationships at the company.
- For someone traveling, find things that help a person travel. Maybe you know that your friend is going backpacking but doesn’t have a great backpack for travel. You could all pitch in and give your friend a great traveling backpack. If you want to go above and beyond, fill it with supplies like a water bottle, toiletries, and favorite snacks.
- Think about why your guest of honor is leaving and where this person is going. Try to make or give a gift or gifts that will be useful to your friend. Don’t give your guest of honor something that will be hard to move or that your guest doesn’t need.
- Maybe your friend is moving to another state. Instead of giving your friend more stuff to have to pack up and move, why not give this person moving boxes or even hire a moving company to help pack everything up. Or, perhaps you and your friends make a memory collage as well as practical items like a traveling backpack and supplies.
- If your co-worker is moving on to a new company think about something work related that will remind this person of the great memories with you but that will be useful for the new job. Perhaps it’s a customized notebook or laptop case. Or maybe you give this person a trinket to sit on a desk.
