What should I serve at a funeral?

The food and beverages you choose to serve to your guests depends on the atmosphere you wish to convey. 

For many circumstances, funerals are a sombre occasion and is a time to grieve, reflect and commemorate your loss. 

On these days, we recommend tea and coffee to be offered to your guests. 

Alternatively, some people choose to take the opportunity to celebrate a life well-lived. 

Share fun moments, stories and memories with your guests that you had with the deceased. We provide basic alcohol packages so you can serve your guests beer, wine and spirits. However, we always recommend drinking responsibly.
