Celebration of Life


This Celebration of Life was planned in six days. We never get the luxury of a lot of planning time when a loved one passes.

With the current pandemic it did make sourcing a caterer quite difficult on such notice. Luckily, Lori from  Simply Scrumptious was able to gather staff and work with me on this event. Thank you!

I was happy to take Mira on as a client to help her put together the details of her beloved father’s Celebration of Life. 

I worked quickly to source a florist and caterer to provide beautiful blooms and delicious food. The guests raved about the food and presentation.

The luncheon included a wide variety of Mediterranean appetizers. 

It was raining all morning during setup.  We were so happy when the sun finally came out so the guests could eat their lunch outside

Friends and family from all over came together to celebrate the late Dr.’s life. A very detailed and thought out program was planned by his children and wife.

Inclusions were prayers and readings, stories from his family, tributes from colleagues, memories of fishing with friends and lastly videos and letters from  around the word before the luncheon reception. 

After lunch the guests were invited to enjoy his favorite stroll as a nice tribute. It was nice to see so many family and friends partake in this to wrap up the beautiful day.
