The flower team would like to say a grateful thank you to all who contributed to the flowers in church at Easter. The warm yellow of the chrysanthemums, carnations and daffodils seemed like a ray of sunshine. Although the daffodils had been in bloom for some weeks, they still brought to mind the spring season and the end of the cold, dark winter days.
Flower team members Lucy, Doris and Patsy arranged the flowers at the church entrance and at the front of the church near the pulpit. The flower colours were yellow and pink.
The children’s Easter garden was in pride of place against the altar at the front of the church. Caroline and Joyce arranged the flowers and foliage. Daffodils and ivy highlighted the tomb where Jesus’ body had been laid to rest after the crucifixion. Small birds and rabbits gave a natural feel to the garden.
On the window sills, daffodils with pale orange centres were displayed in pots and surrounded by Easter hens, eggs and candles. The porch arrangement featured pink roses against a background of yellow and green foliage.
All in all, the church was beautifully decorated and reflected the joy of the Easter festival.
