Sports Themed Funerals
Lost a Loved One? How to Plan a Sports-Themed Funeral for a Beloved Sports Fan
When you think about funerals, you might think about stuffy flowers and boring music. If you recently lost a loved one who was a sports fan, however, you may want to do something a little more special to honour your friend or family member's life and passions. For example, a great option is to plan a sports-themed funeral. Follow these tips for a tasteful yet totally personalized memorial service that will honour your loved one in the best way possible.
Choose Flowers in Team Colours
Although people will probably want to send flowers to your loved one's service, this doesn't mean that you have to go with boring and non-fitting plants and flowers. Consider letting people know that you want the flowers to be in your loved one's favourite team's colours, or call the local florists and let them know about this preference.
Some florists might even add special touches by adding ribbon, vases or flower pots in these colors or even with the team's logo on them. These flowers will allow everyone to show their support while giving the funeral parlor a fitting look for your loved one's memorial service.
Consider Sports-themed Clothing for the Service
Consider using sports-themed clothing for the service. When choosing clothing for the deceased to wear for his or her burial, consider burying him or her with a sports-themed tie, clothing in the team's colours or even in sports memorabilia. Pallbearers and other participants in the service can follow a similar lead. For example, they can wear shirts, pants and ties in the team colors or can wear a team tie.
Choose a Sports-themed Coffin
Finally how about a picture coffin based on your loved ones favourite sport or team. Many soccer and rugby clubs have allowed their team colours to be used on coffins.
There is something truly special about a sports fan, and your loved one was probably very passionate about his or her favourite sport. There is no reason to forget about all of this when planning his or her funeral, so consider following these tips when planning the perfect memorial service for the person you love.
