I wanted to include a memorial table primarily for our grandparents that have passes. I made a tree and plan to put pictures of our loved ones. I’m looking for a quote to tie it all together but haven’t found anything just right yet. I wanted to try to find something to incorporate the tree. Here are pics of the tree, the pic frames are just samples to see how to place them. Any suggestions?
I like this a lot. I’m planning on having battery operated tea lights for each departed family member on one of the chairs in the front row with a sign that says something along the lines of “Reserved for our heavenly guests” For yours, could you say something about “Seasons may come and go, but our roots are what help us grow”
Mine says "We know you'd be here today, if Heaven wasn't so far away" in the top left of my memorial picture holder, then after the rows of pictures, on the bottom right, it says "...Forever in our hearts."
There are many, many options. I found the ones I like on Pinterest. Below is my test run. I've since changed the paper to card stock and added little clip art flowers/hearts.
I scanned the original photos (3 were 8x10s, 2 were small 4x4s, 1 was a 3x5) and had prints made at Walgreens. I liked Walgreen's service because it's easy to change orientation, so I could have them all print lengthwise instead of widthwise that way they were uniform
I am doing a chair for my best friend who passed away 1.5 years ago. My Fiancé asked that the chair would be on his side of the aisle because he would have wanted him as a groomsman if my best friend was still around. Needless to say I cried.
I would actually leave as is- the lights and older pictures would be very obvious to guests. We were thinking of doing a memorial table as well but ultimately decided against it in the end and went with a prayer during our ceremony.
I've lost all of my grandparents and my husband had lost a grandfather. However, we both had people from our families that did not leave behind the greatest of legacies; if we put up some photos we would have to put up all of them.
Instead, our officiant made mention during our ceremony that it would've been my paternal grandparents' 73rd wedding anniversary that same night and segued into a prayer about those we had lost.
I think it's a sweet nod to the person. I'm planning on saving a chair for my dad and it will have his jacket on it. I'll also have a few flowers from his birth month that I will place in the chair once I make it down the aisle
