Family Together at a Celebration of Life

What is a Celebration of Life?

A celebration of life service is a time for loved ones to gather and celebrate what made their loved one unique. A celebration of life ceremony is similar to a funeral service, but it gives families more options for creativity and often takes place after the funeral. It’s about family and friends coming together to share memories of their loved one and what made them special.


Also, with a personalized service, your family can truly honor who your loved one was. For instance, if your loved one was a wine connoisseur, your service could include a toast to them or use the service as a time for everyone to gather at a special place to scatter their ashes. The more creative you get, the more meaningful the service will be to you and your family. 

What is the Best Time to Have a Celebration of Life?

You can arrange a celebration of life service anytime. Depending on your family's preferences, it might be appropriate to hold it shortly after the funeral service. Sometimes it can be helpful with our healing journey and grieving process. It is also possible to prepare a celebration of life in honor of your loved one's anniversary, birthday, or any other occasion.


You can hold the celebration of life at a funeral home or any other place that is convenient for you. Remember that it should be a place with the right amenities to provide a lovely environment. Our Funeral Home offers beautiful and accessible facilities, as well as a trained staff that is dedicated to making you and your guests comfortable.

Celebration of Life Service Ideas

Celebration of life ceremonies can be anything that your family desires, but some ideas to give you some inspiration include: 


  • Having a releasing ceremony to honor your loved one’s life. 
  • Listening to their favorite albums and artists in company of family and friends. 
  • Holding the service in a unique location like a local park or restaurant. 
  • Inviting a local band to play at the service. 
  • Making all your loved ones’ favorite foods or ordering catering from their favorite restaurant. 
  • Having funeral guests read poems or scriptures that remind them of your loved one.

What to say at a Celebration of Life service?

A celebration of your loved one's life does not have to be over-the-top or cliché, even though it's a much more relaxed service than a funeral or memorial service. This includes any speech or words you would like to share at the event. Think of moments you had together and genuinely describe that memory.


One idea is to begin your speech by mentioning something your loved one said or a phrase they used to say. Try thinking back on the fun times you used to have together: the beach vacation, the meal you prepared together, the dance or fishing spree, the moment you took a big step or made an important decision, etc.


The essential thing here is to share with others what made our loved ones special. We all always like it when we receive a compliment. Think of this service as a beautiful and enormous compliment to our loved ones.
