Guest books are often chosen to reflect the theme or color scheme of a retirement party. While traditional guest books are blank, many people choose to prompt guests to describe a special memory or give the retiree a piece of advice. Other creative ideas include asking guests to fill in interactive forms or attaching small envelopes to each page to allow guests to write the retiree a private message.
