How to throw the ultimate retirement party with help from some Twin Cities party services.

If anyone deserves a party, it’s someone who’s dedicated the majority of their life to the workplace and now—finally—gets to kick back and relax. Celebrate your retirement with party services from Deco Catering, Stella’s Fish Cafe, the Courtyards of Andover, or MN Pro DJ.

Deco Catering
Deco Catering has been servicing the Twin Cities’ various party needs for over 30 years. Offering a customizable menu and service to best suit the type of celebration, Deco Catering is well prepared for any kind of retirement party you’re looking to throw. Deco Catering believes that retirement parties should be fun to commemorate the career of the guest of honor. However, the fun shouldn’t stop at them. Deco Catering offers cocktail receptions, open bars, and hors d’oeuvres to allow guests to socialize and share stories about the years spent as coworkers. A full buffet is also an option for those looking to throw retirement parties that better resemble a feast, perfect for both large and small retirement parties. Deco Catering boasts its ability to cater parties from 20 to 2,000 people, and they also offer a variety of themes to add a little excitement to your retirement party.

Stella’s Fish Cafe
If you’re a lover of all things seafood, Stella’s Fish Cafe is perfect for your big celebration. Stella’s Fish Cafe suggests that you first establish a budget for your retirement party, and they’ll be able to assist to stay within that budget. Also, because you’ve been working with many of the same people for years, there’s likely no one who knows how to throw you a retirement party that you’ll love better than your coworkers. Stella’s Fish Cafe suggests reaching out to coworkers for assistance with preparing the celebration. When picking a venue, Stella’s Fish Cafe has a number of options. From indoor venues to outdoor, Stella’s Fish Cafe offers numerous venues for larger retirement parties. If you’re throwing a small party or just working with a tight budget, Stella’s Fish Cafe also offers indoor reservations in their private dining area or outdoor pavilion in Uptown, Minneapolis.

The Courtyards of Andover
For a classy, sophisticated retirement party, look no further than The Courtyards of Andover. This venue is surrounded by luscious greenery, flowing streams, koi ponds, and seasonal floral arrangements. The Courtyards of Andover offer a unique selection of cocktail hours, buffets, and ceremonies depending on the type of retirement party you’re looking to throw. Because their venue can seat over 600 guests, the Courtyards of Andover are best suited for those looking to throw larger retirement parties. Despite the venue size, the Courtyards of Andover can make the largest retirement party seem small and intimate.

Whether you’re musically inclined or just a fan of a good dance party, you might want to book MN Pro DJ for a retirement party that your guests will surely not forget. Founded in 1998, MN Pro DJ offers a variety of services including experienced DJs, creative lighting, ceremonies, up-front consultations, games and props, and reliable communication throughout the planning process. All of the DJs are professionals, and none of them work with a set playlist, making the entertainment entirely decided by you and your guests. While their prices start at $495 for a four-hour gig, they offer different types of celebrations that are priced accordingly. For dinner or cocktail music, it’s $50 an hour, and for additional dance music, it’s $100 an hour. Planning a budget is important to help MN Pro DJ plan the best retirement party based on your needs.

Whether you’re looking for a quaint retirement party among wildlife, an indoor seafood celebration, a full buffet that will keep you and your guests full until the next retirement party, or a fun party filled with music that will both make you sentimental and want to dance, you’ll want to consider what these retirement party services can provide for you.
