How people look at death and grieve when they lose a loved one has changed significantly over the years. Tindall Funeral Home has seen that clients these days prefer to celebrate the life of their loved ones rather than shed tears for their loss. This also means people are now looking for creative ideas for funeral services.

Funeral Service- Some Creative Ideas

These are some funeral service ideas to consider:

  • Give Away Books - If your loved one was an avid reader, they might have a good collection of books; you may not always have room to keep them all. The best way to honor the person’s memory could be to give one book each to attendee at the funeral service. It’s a way to memorialize your loved one creatively.
  • Personalized Casket - When you lose someone you love, you want to make sure that they get a befitting farewell, and opting for a customized casket is an excellent way to do this. Today, most funeral homes have a range of creatively designed caskets. Therefore, whether you want something elaborate or simplistic, you are sure to find something that suits your requirements. You can also get a name or message imprinted or carved into the casket or have one styled in a specific theme.
  • Personalize The Order Of Service Booklet - Many people can hand out these booklets at a funeral service, and most have a basic design with just a single photo on the cover. This is a great opportunity to use your creativity and create something unique. For example, you can make a collage of various pictures of your loved one, add captions, and print them on the service booklet.
