Floral arrangements are not your only option for decorating during a funeral. Flowers can be incredibly expensive, not to mention difficult and finicky to handle. If you are looking for an alternative way to decorate a funeral service or celebration of life ceremony, why not have your friends and family help you create a beautiful memorial photo board?
A great way to remember your loved ones
Memorial photo boards are an excellent way to show people who your loved one was as a person. They can be as simple or elaborate as you desire. All you need to get started are some pictures of your loved one, a poster board, and some adhesive. People will be amazed to see pictures of the deceased’s life and passions displayed in such a moving manner.
How to make a memorial photo board
Try to find pictures from every stage of your loved one’s life and do not hesitate to reach out to other friends and family to see if they have any photographs that would be appropriate for the display.
Once you have your photographs ready, you can think about the layout. Decide if a simple layout would suit your loved one, or if you would like to have a more elaborate design with borders, stickers or other embellishments. Place the photographs on the poster board before using adhesive. You do not want to waste time pulling up photographs and re-gluing them.
Displaying your photo boards
When your photo boards are complete, you will want to bring them to the event location so they can be displayed during the proceedings. Ask your funeral director to help you with the ideal placement for your memorial photo boards. Remember that people are going to flock to look at the displays, so make sure they are easily accessible.
Memorial photo boards are a wonderful way to celebrate your loved one for who they were as a person throughout their life. As an alternative to costly floral arrangements that you’ll throw away, why not have your friends and family help you create a memorial photo board you’ll cherish for years?
