The most special locations for the funeral ceremony
Most funeral ceremonies are held in the funeral home, cemetery, crematorium, church or mosque. These types of locations specialize in this and have all the facilities to ensure that the ceremony runs smoothly. Think of an audio installation with room amplification and the option to show photos and videos. But a funeral ceremony or farewell ceremony may take place anywhere in Rotterdam. For example, it is possible to arrange the farewell ceremony in the Kralingse Bos, on or on the Maas or in the port of Rotterdam. But also in every Rotterdam cafe, theater, museum and even in your own garden. For example, a special funeral location can make a valuable contribution to a personal farewell to a loved one.
Balloons at a Funeral
You can only say goodbye once, so you want to do it in an appropriate way. The release of balloons can literally symbolize the release of your loved one. Or maybe you want to write a last hello on it and see the balloon as a message to the top.
Nowadays in Rotterdam it is forbidden to release balloons because everything that goes up also ends up back down in nature. Although our latex balloons are not made of plastic and are 100% biodegradable, animals can suffocate in the balloons or get tangled in the ribbons attached to the balloons.
We are therefore now discouraging the release of large numbers of balloons and are therefore happy to show you in the photos below what it was like at a funeral in Rotterdam. Fortunately, there are plenty alternatives to use balloons at the cofin (click on the link for pictures).
