Departure party with your colleagues: how to have a good time

Are you leaving your company soon and want to leave on a high note? In that case, what better way than to organise a farewell party with all your colleagues and relatives? In this article, Fauchon gives you its best tips for organising your farewell party and making it an unforgettable memory.

Why organise a farewell party?

In life, it is important to celebrate your victories but also your great moments of change. When you join a company, you meet new people who you meet every day at work and with whom you develop relationships over time. So, on the day you leave, it is important to mark this moment as the end of a good experience in your company.

There are many reasons why you might want to leave your company, not just to retire. It could be to discover new horizons with a new job elsewhere, to retrain, or simply to take a break. In any case, you deserve to organise a farewell party with your colleagues to end your adventure on a high note and start a new stage in your life.


Departure party: who to invite and where to hold it

The guests

To organise the ideal farewell party, one of the first things to think about is: who do you want to invite? Indeed, in this kind of circumstance, it is important to be well surrounded. To do this, you need to make sure that your colleagues and relatives can be invited to the event: to this end, don't hesitate to offer them several dates for invitations, both during the day and in the evening, so that you can choose the one that will suit everyone best. You will then be able to enjoy your farewell party surrounded by the people you care about most, for an unforgettable celebration!

The venue

For a perfect celebration, the choice of venue is one of the most important parameters. There are several choices available to you:

  • A farewell party at the office: a nice way to end your adventure in the premises that have accompanied you during your professional experience. In this way, you can celebrate yourself but also celebrate the place where you have bonded with your colleagues.
  • A farewell party in a bar: having your farewell party in a bar is a great idea if you want to get away from many of the constraints of choosing a venue, as it's a self-contained venue... and often more festive! However, make sure you call the bar in advance to make sure there will be enough room to accommodate all your guests.
  • A farewell party in a hall: booking a hall allows you to easily choose the size of the venue in which you want to celebrate your farewell party, and also gives you a lot of freedom in terms of the layout of it.
  • A farewell party in your own home: if you have enough space at home, hosting your guests in your cocoon can also be an excellent choice. The advantage: you will have the freedom to opt for the organisation you want!
