Celebration Of Life

In recent years, families have begun to turn away from traditional burial services and instead hold alternative services. A celebration of life is an emerging service that more and more families are now choosing to honor their loved one and say goodbye. With less people having strong religious ties or beliefs, a celebration of life allows the deceased’s family to include more joyous and personalized elements in the service. Much like a funeral service, this type of a service is used to honor the deceased and allow friends and loved ones to say goodbye.
 

Rather than an emotional service that is filled with sadness, a celebration of life service tries to celebrate the accomplishments and positive memories of the deceased. Guests are invited to celebrate a life well lived and share stories and positive experiences they shared with the deceased. Freedom to be creative is one of the biggest factors that have helped the popularity of celebrations of life grow recently. Things like choice of music, decorations and more are all ways that families are able to celebrate their loved one’s personality, values and passions.
 

Celebration of Life Ideas

If you compare the different funeral homes in St Catherines, you will find many reputable providers. What truly sets our funeral establishment apart from others is our commitment to doing more. Our caring staff will work hard to ensure we create an event that celebrates your loved one’s legacy and allows your family to give them a dignified goodbye.
 
The great thing about planning a celebration of life is that there is no mold or instructions to follow. The service will be completely unique to your loved one and thus, a one-of-a-kind experience. You will have complete control in selecting things like decorations, food, music and other elements of the service.
 
Below are a few different examples of ideas or themes you could build a celebration of life service around:
 

The Gamesman

Was your loved on the type of person who seemed unbeatable at table games? Did they have a love of playing board games, chess or cards? If this was the case, this celebration of life theme encourages guests to play games with one another as they reminisce over memories. 
To recognize this important part of their life, set up various games around the venue and offer guests a different experience than they are accustom to at traditional services. 
 

The Music Lover

If your loved one was a musician or just had a love for music, honor them by making sure it is present during their celebration of life. This could be done by hiring a local band to perform during the service and play some of their favorite songs. If a band isn’t a feasible option, create a playlist of songs they enjoyed instead to be played throughout the venue. celebration of life
 

The Potluck

Everyone enjoys a nice home cooked meal. If your loved one enjoyed cooking for their family, pay tribute to them by turning the celebration of life service into a potluck. Encourage guests to make some of your loved one’s favorite recipes and serve them during the service. If you oryour guests don’t feel up to cooking, consider hiring a local caterer to recreate the dishes instead.
