When you have cremation services in Tacoma, WA for a loved one, you might be concerned that your loved one is going through the same method thousands of people have gone through before. While that’s true, the method is unique every time because it deals with a different person each time. And, you can do whatever you want to personalize your loved one’s cremation so it’s everything you want for them. Here are a few ways to customize those services.

Choose A Special Location

If you decide to have a memorial service for your loved one, you are going to want to choose a special location for the event. That location is going to help you to customize the event from the start. You might have things in a family home where you knew they were comfortable, in a local park where they spent a lot of time, or another location that works well for your family.

Consider A Theme

You can do anything you want for a loved one’s memorial service, and that includes having a theme. You will want to consider the things your loved one liked during their lifetime and that can help you to come up with a theme. You might use pickleball, for example, if they played daily and loved talking about the game. Decorate with the pickleballs and have courts open for the game during their event. If they adored music, that can be the theme and you can even hand out song lists to people who want to enjoy the music they liked. There are endless themes and the theme you pick can make the day special.

Create A Display

It’s always nice to include pictures of your loved one at the memorial event and that display can be very meaningful for people to see. Set up picture boards on a table of them in various stages of life, with family, and doing some of the things they loved. That display can go a long way to making the event special and unique.

Pick Great Flowers

Flowers are always a nice way to decorate a memorial event. Choosing bright, colorful flowers can help you to give the event an uplifting look, if that’s what you feel your loved one would want. You can choose their favorite flowers or, instead of cut flowers, get potted flowers that people can take home and plant in their honor.

Honor Them through Song

Music is a great way to honor someone and no two songs are alike, just like no two individuals are alike. You can honor your loved one through a special song or even through all of the music you have as a part of the service.

Your loved one had taste buds that made they like certain things and you can serve those items at the cremation services in Tacoma, WA to remind everyone of the things they enjoyed. Their favorite foods can bring back memories and help everyone to have a nice time in their honor.
