The family really wanted an outside memorial with indoor access to a kitchen, clean restrooms, and an indoor sitting area. A family friend graciously opened their home and yard - a perfect and economical solution. The memorial service was held outside in the evening sunlight, in the grass amidst the trees in view of the strawberry patch and vegetable garden. An arch of aspens with valance of chocolate satin (a favorite color) and beautifully soft accenting floral were used to frame the speaker stand for the service (speaker stand not shown here).

Opposite, another aspen arch was used to frame the memorabilia table set amidst the grape vines.
