  • Create unique and personal invitations with photos.
  • Send an index card and ask each guest to write down a memory or funny story about the Retiree and bring it to the party. Put out a Card Box for the memory cards, or put them all in an album with photos from the party for the retiree.


  • Photos of the retiree make great decorations. Use them on tables with photo holders, and on walls and windows.
  • Balloons, streamers, festooning, crepe, confetti and banners will add a festive touch.
