There are endless options if you are planning a celebration of life for a loved one who has passed on. The first decision you will make is whether you will go with traditional burial or cremation. Cremation is the most popular option if you are going to have a celebration of life since that type of service is less traditional and more versatile. Your Carrollton, TX funeral home can help you with location options and other logistics. Here are a few locations you could consider for your loved one’s celebration of life.
The Funeral Home
Funeral homes are good locations for any type of service, including a celebration of life. If you want your loved one to have as many people present as want to attend, the funeral home often has a good amount of space to accommodate such a service. They will set everything up as you need it and take care of flowers, cards, and other gifts that might come in during the service. You will have much less to worry about in terms of logistics, if you go with a funeral home.
If your loved one was a member of a certain church, you might feel more comfortable having their celebration of life in that venue. There are plenty of options there as well and most churches have space for a post-service reception, making it easy for guests to stay in one location instead of having to move to a second place.
A Family Home
If you’d like to keep the service smaller and more intimate, you can have a celebration of life in someone’s house. Invite close family members to the home at a designated time and trade stories and memories about your loved one. This is one way to keep things more casual while making everyone more comfortable with the type of service overall.
A Local Park
Did your loved one adore nature? Have the celebration of life in a park in your area. You could combine the service with an ash scattering, if you’d like, or just use the park setting to enjoy nature, as they did. You could even release doves or butterflies in their memory or have a tree planted for them in a special location.
