Throwback Thursday: That time I planned a hipster themed farewell party for Keith who used to work with me

I still question why he decided to leave my side…but he did to join the King James agency group (I’m still waiting for my drinks invitation) you know you can’t promise a coloured free wine and not deliver lol!

We worked together for 5 years so I just took it upon myself to plan his farewell and because he’d become such a fashionista, I decided that having a hipster theme was the only appropriate option. I must say it was pretty fun throwing this little party together at such short notice. Maybe a side career in events deco and props? Mmmm….

Keith loved his farewell and I loved putting everything together. I wasn’t that much but it certainly made an impact and I think that even the smallest extra detail and make a difference when planning a little party or get together. It will certainly set you aside from others and your friends will feel super special that you went through the effort for them. Try it at your next braai or house party. Make a little banner or fun coasters or create stickers for people to wear…and I promise you it will create a much more fun atmosphere as opposed to something normal.

I’ve attached a link that could inspire you next time you host that next games night or chill evening.
