People today are veering towards more creative and unusual ideas when it comes to planning a funeral service for a dearly departed family member. They look for meaningful ways to plan the service so that it is a reflection of the person that has left them. The idea is to plan something that’s unique and meaningful all at once.

Here are some creative ideas for funeral services:

  • You should consider giving seed cards to the attendees at the funeral. The cards have seeds that the attendees can sow in their gardens. You can choose seeds of plants such as ‘forget-me-not’. If you prefer, a seedling is another thing to hand out at a funeral service. Many card companies and funeral homes offer these services to clients.
  • Most funerals have a large number of flowers placed at the venue and around the casket as well. You can consider reusing these flowers; turn them into small posies and distribute them people attending the service. The flowers can also be turned into creative jewelry. You can do this by kneading the flowers with polymer clay and then craft them into beads or other types of jewelry bits. You can give these to friends and family that had attended the service.
  • Consider getting a personalized, unique shaped casket. Choose a design that depicts or is a reflection of the decedent’s hobbies or likings. It is a creative way to honor the deceased person.

You can have discussions with your family members before deciding which option will work best for you. It’s necessary to choose something everyone will be comfortable with rather than deal with dissent later on.
