No matter the circumstances, when someone we love passes, it is never an easy time. In a time of grief and sorrow, it is important that we do our best to remember the good times we had with this person and try to celebrate their life. Unfortunately, the seemingly impossible task of planning the funeral ceremony is on the family of that loved one, which is why we at Conroy's Flowers Fresno in Fresno, CA, have come up with some ideas to make your loved one's ceremony more of a celebration of their life and keep their memory everlasting.
When planning a ceremony, flowers are always a beautiful direction to go when deciding how to decorate. We recommend the Peaceful Prayers Serenity Angel Arrangement White. The Peaceful Prayers Serenity Angel arrangement has a stunning yet subtle look to it. Placed in the center of this arrangement is a white ceramic angel statue that will make for a beautiful keepsake you can keep in your home in memory of your loved one.
Depending on how many people you expect to be joining you in celebration of your loved one, it might be a good idea for you to create name tags for guests. Oftentimes, at these ceremonies there are guests from all points of our family member's life and many have never met one another or don't remember each other. A name tag with how they met the deceased can help guests to grieve with one another and share stories and memories they have of the times they spent with their friend, colleague or family member.
Keep in mind that this ceremony is about remembering those that have left us, and we want to incorporate the things they loved and enjoying in their lifetime. When deciding on what food, snacks, and beverages to provide, think about their favorite cuisines. If their favorite meal was pizza and ice cream, serve guests pizza and ice cream as a way of celebrating their life; think about what they would have wanted. It's still okay to have other options of food or drinks as not everyone will like it, or some can't have it because of allergies or other dietary restrictions, but simply having their favorite dish available is certain to spark old memories with guests.
While it's never easy losing the ones we love and planning the funeral ceremony might initially seem to make the grieving process harder, take it as an opportunity to give them one last celebration and remember all the good things they accomplished in their life. Think about everything and everyone they loved in their life and include them in the celebration. We at Conroy's Flowers Fresno in Fresno, CA, >hope our advice, ideas, and suggestions helped you.
