Spring-Inspired Funeral Decorations 

No matter what time of year it is, there are many ways to create a spring-inspired funeral service. Below are a few decoration ideas. 

  • Flowers and plants, whether they bloom in the spring or were your loved one’s favorite 
  • Spring colors such as pastels and shades of green 
  • Birdhouses, nests, and branches 
  • Butterfly-themed décor 
  • Umbrellas for holding flowers 

If you’re having an outdoor funeral service during the springtime, you also could place umbrellas by all the chairs for your funeral guests in case it rains.



Funeral Personalization for the Spring-Inspired Funeral Reception 

For a spring-inspired funeral reception, you can’t go wrong with fresh fruit and vegetables, especially if they’re from a family member’s garden. A few fruits and vegetables that are in season during the spring are strawberries, cherries, rhubarb, artichokes, and asparagus. For example, you could make a refreshing strawberry salad or comforting spinach artichoke dip. 

When decorating the funeral reception area, you can include flowers or plants on all the tables as centerpieces. You also can use green or pastel-colored napkins and dishware. 


Spring-Inspired Gift Ideas for Funeral Guests 

After the funeral, you can give your funeral guests something special to remember your loved one by, such as: 

  • Flowers for making dried flower mementos, such as frame-pressed flowers or potpourri 
  • Spring-themed poem or quote 
  • Packet of seeds 
  • Recipe from a spring-inspired dish at the funeral reception
