Many people believe that cremation services are all identical affairs, with the same kinds of funeral urns used for every deceased loved one without any room individuality.
Nothing could be further from the truth—there are multiple ways to display funeral urns during a cremation services that are unique to the deceased and their survivors. Each way can showcase the personality of the individual being remembered and to give them the send-off their loved ones desire. Here are some common display ideas.
Selecting a Funeral Urn
Not all funeral urns are created equal. They come in all shapes and sizes, and in a range of colors both vibrant and subdued. Each urn can reflect the best of the deceased in all their elegance, dignity, and poise, providing a focal point to remember the person who has passed.
Most funeral and cremation services use a wide variety of floral décor. Floral arrangements can be as unique as the person who passed and can provide a sense of comfort and renewal to those in mourning.
Showcasing Their Personality and Hobbies
If you feel that flowers do not adequately capture the personality or memory of your lost loved one, your cremation service can also display the hobbies they loved in life. If they were a fan of a sports franchise, you can decorate their funeral urn with their favorite memorabilia. This can be done by displaying the urn in front of a beloved sports jacket or placing items with team logos and motifs around the urn.
Alternatively, if they loved to read, you could display the funeral urn on top of a stack of books they cherished. Crematoriums are often willing to help you set up the display that is the most meaningful for you to honor your loved one.
