Food and beverages:
Food and drinks are an important part of any event. A great idea might be to ask guests bring a dish that your loved one really enjoyed. You may want to create a list to make sure that you have a variety of dishes. A potluck style event will save money and also make everyone a part of the celebration of life. Be sure to have plenty of coffee, tea and water.
What audio and visual equipment will be needed?
Technology can play an important part in honouring your loved one. Memorial videos, slideshows, and music playlists will create a warm atmosphere of remembrance.
You can create a guest list and send out invitations, or you could create an event using a social media platform such as Facebook. Either way, ask people to RSVP so you know how much food and beverages you will need for the celebration of life.
