It’s hard to plan to celebrate life, but life can be celebrated in many ways. Whether it’s a significant birthday (18, 21, 40, 50, 60 etc.), a retirement after a long and happy work life, a silver, golden or diamond wedding celebration, the choice is endless really.
Here are some ideas on how to celebrate that special occasion.
A special meal – Celebrate at a restaurant or pub where the memories are brought back.
A special holiday– Somewhere you have always wanted to go for that special time.
Time away in a hotel – Where time can be spent pampering yourself with a massage or spa.
A special day out – Where you are chauffer driven. Having your own tour guide and exploring somewhere like a town or stately home. Making you feel like a king and or queen for a day.
There are other options that may be less expensive and it gives the opportunity to share with family and friends.
A family meal with close family at a restaurant
Hiring a venue and having a family and friends get together.
A family picnic/BBQ, not at home but somewhere that the family can meet, the adults can talk and the kids play.
This also gives the opportunity for family and or friends to celebrate with a personal gift, to acknowledge how special those being celebrated are to them.
There are lots of ways to give and lots of gifts to choose from.

CELEBRATION OF LIFE SLIDESHOW, A UNIQUE WAY TO PAY TRIBUTE TO A UNIQUE LIFE.
Celebration of life slideshow is a unique way when the time comes to celebrate a life.
When the time comes, have you thought about personalising arrangements for your funeral?
The passing of a life should have meaning for the family and friends. It is a celebration of a unique and wonderful life that the loved one had. It is the tribute that reflects on and remembers the memories by helping to start the healing process.
By paying tribute in this personalised way, the ceremony allows family and friends to share a life story. It allows everyone who has come to give support, the opportunity to join in and remember the fun times and good times by paying their tribute to the unique life.
There are a lot of options to enable the personalisation of celebrating the passing.
A few options to consider:
Customised Funeral Vehicles: Horse drawn hearse, customised van
Memory Table: memorabilia items that remember the person life.
Music: Playing of favourite music that people remember the memories of the life.
Celebration of Life Slideshow tribute: Where images, video, music, poetry, testimonials are all brought together and played at the ceremony and family/friends get together after the ceremony.
All of the above help with the healing process for those that are left behind. It’s about involving people and bringing them together. The slideshow also leaves a legacy for future generations to enjoy and keep memories alive.
