Today I got a great idea from a customer. She unfortunately has been attending several funerals lately and our memory cards inspired her. Here is what she wrote:
I think the “special memory” card would be TERRIFIC at a luncheon already on the guest tables with pens, maybe a simple tri-fold type of card with it asking guest to write down, this would encourage conversations at table to be about the deceased. I’ve been at funerals/memorials where people didn’t know “how” to talk especially when they end up seated at a table with they don’t know people. If customers who purchased your “special memory” cards also have a “memory box” that was simple but tastefully decorated with a slit in it for guest to drop cards in it would help be somewhat of a “festive” way to celebrate life. I think it may be a nice way to help people grow into a more celebratory attitude of death.
Heck, you know how those table topic boxes are so popular now, maybe you can come up with one for your website with questions that would promote conversations: one that can be used for memorials, one that can be purchased as “grief” gifts to teens, “adults”, children etc….
