Bereavement can be a very difficult time and the funeral day is a unique and mixed time of the comfort of seeing so many family and friends coming together and the sadness and heartbreak that the gathering is to say goodbye to someone who meant so much to everyone.
It is often the immediate family of the loved one who has passed away who host the day and so have the responsibility of looking after and thanking guests with a suitable spreads good and drink at a time when it may be the most difficult to feel able to do so.
A buffet can be a wonderful way to gather everyone together after a funeral to share memories and stories over food and drink. The best food choices are often bite size nibbles with enough food to cater for those who may be hungry after a long journey but providing also for those who may just want a tiny nibble with a drink.
Having the food and cold drinks ready in the fridge, kettle full and tea bags ready in the tea pot before you leave for the funeral can be a great help. Delegating responsibilities as much as possible will also help make the day go smoothly, enabling hosts to look after their guests as well as making the most of their own personal emotions and private moments of grief, goodbyes and memories throughout the day.
