If you have the opportunity to decorate your church for Easter, please remember that you have many options. You are not compelled to only purchase white Easter lilies in gold cellophane covered pots. The lily is my favorite flower, but I believe that its beauty is enhanced if it is used in moderation and combined with many other textures. This Easter, I decorated the sanctuary of my church with potted palms, pussy willow, and a few potted Easter lilies. On the high altar, I made bouquets that were primarily composed of white oriental lilies. The oriental lilies were accented with pink and yellow Asiatic lilies, purple statice, and pale green gladiolas.
