Hi everyone! What do you call the main person who is thrown or throws a farewell party?

Thanks a lot!

The person for whom the party (any party) is being thrown is known as "the guest of honour". The person who arranges or holds the party is "the host". The host and the guest of honour are not usually the same person...unless, of course, your name is Bilbo Baggins.
