People spend a lot of time designing things like weddings, but have you ever thought about the design that could go into a final service at funeral homes in Monroe, NC? Final services mark very important things—the end of someone’s life. And when you lose a loved one, all you really want to do is celebrate their life and honor their memory in a way that is as unique as they were. The design of their final service can help you figure out just how to do that. Here are some things to think through:
The Space You Will Use
One of the things that will speak to the design of the service more than anything is the space that will hold it. If you are having the final services at the funeral home, they will likely have several spaces as options for your family. If you are having something small and intimate, you want a smaller room so it doesn’t feel overwhelming and empty. If you are opening the service to the public, something larger is in store. Study the space and see what colors you want to include through flowers and other decorations.
The People Invited
At a final service, nothing matters more than the people who are there to honor your loved one. Invite those who loved your family member and care about them enough to show up and offer their condolences. If your loved one was outgoing, invite the public and you never know who might show up and surprise you. It can also be very touching to just have close family members and friends who knew your family member on another level. The design of the service often revolves around those who attend.
You can choose flowers for your loved one’s service to add to the room’s décor. You can pick based on their favorite flowers, the colors they enjoyed, what would go good with the room, or what has a slight scent so as not to overpower guests. You can also simply utilize flowers that people send because you know others will reach out in that way.
You know that funeral home spaces are used for funerals and memorial services often and you want to make the space more about your unique loved one. The personal details are key to designing the space in just the right way. You can add pictures, memorabilia, and other items to make the space all about your loved one in a way that honors them and makes the event unique.
