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 Flowers by Nonna in Ridgewood, Queens in New York, 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.
A memory table is a great way to highlight the most significant parts of our loved one's life. When putting together a memory table, pictures are always a good option, but try to incorporate meaningful items for their life. For example, if they served our country, placing their uniform and/or accolades on the table will show the sacrifice they made for us and the pride and dedication they had for their country. Try to think of the things they most enjoyed in their life and they took the most pride in and try to show those memories through the memory table.
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 Flowers by Nonna in Ridgewood, Queens in New York, hope our advice, ideas, and suggestions helped you. We want to make this process as easy as possible for you and are always here to offer our skills, services, and expertise to the best of our abilities.
