I have 6 days left to throw a funeral, haven't started. Suggestions?!

Question: I have 6 days left to throw a funeral, haven't started!. Suggestions!?
I'm in charge of planning this "Celebration of Life" ceremony/party for like 100 people for a family member who died last month!. Between everything going wrong, mourning my family member, being broke, depressed, and already crazy to start with, time slipped away!. Now, the party tent people can't get the tent into my friend's back yard, most places are booked, I'm losing my mind, what do I do!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

your family member has been dead a month, you are throwing a party but have no money, are insane and so forgetful time slipped away from you and the party tent is too big for your friends backyard!.!.!.!.hmm, just forget about the party, return the tent, save some money, wait another month and your family member will be completely decomposed and everyone will have forgotten why you asked them to a celebration of life anyway!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

What part of the country are you in!. In most places it's still nice enough to go to a park!. Either set up a tent there or see if they have a pavilion to use!. make it pot luck but supply drinks and stuff like paper plates cups etc!. have everyone bring pictures of the loved one and be prepared to share special memories!. also if you gather a bunch of pictures together your local photo shop can make a poster collage of their life, but they well need time to do it!. Call and see about cost and time needed, you can have it dry mounted to put on an easel and even leave a 3 to 4 inch white border for everyone to sign as a remembrance!. Example 16x20 collage would be a 20x24 that's a 4 inch border all around!. Good luck and condolences!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Don't rent the tent, buy colorful umbrellas!. If it rains then people can use them to hold off the water!. If it doesn't rain then people can use them to hold off the sun!.
I don't know how much it costs to rent a tent, but, you could use the money to take people to a pizza place!. If people want more pizza they can buy their own!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Don't make yourself crazy!. find a park, get there at 5 a!.m!. and stake out an area with yellow tape!. Tell everyone to bring their own picnic and a story about the loved one!. And make the event about telling stories, not about feeding people!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I would have it at a near by park where they have picnic tables!. Ask others to bring a dish of something!. That way it all won't be left for you to do!. Some can bring a dish, others can bring paper plates, napkins!.!.!.!.etc!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Do it at a beach, a park, or some other place like that!.

Good luck! :-)Www@FoodAQ@Com
