Celebrate : Mom's Retirement Party

Posted by


Two weeks ago we had a retirement celebration for my Mother.  I know first hand how great a teacher she was because I continue to learn from her today.  The celebration was at a restaurant and the space was a bit tight but I wanted to do a little something to make it special - without making it too crowded.  I opted to replace the restaurant's menu with one that resembled a classic notebook but also doubled as a place card.  It was just enough to make the dinner feel special.  I have included a blank version of the notebook cover  and pages in case you would like to use them for your own celebrations.  Congratulations Mom!

  • What a wonderfully thoughtful gesture for your Mom!

    I am sure she is very touched and blessed to have a daughter who not only threw a lovely party for her, but also payed her the highest compliment any mom/teacher could hope for, by stating that you still learn from her to this day. :)

    Thank you for sharing the great printout too.
