Hiding the Easter Decorations

In advance of the Easter Day service prepare the church flowers and Easter banners and decorate the Good Friday cross, if you are using one, with flowers, butterflies and dragonflies (see templates for butterflies and dragonflies in The Changing Tree in How to Make) but do not put them into the church straight away – allow the church to remain bare. When the people have gathered play a trumpet fanfare to announce that the Lord is risen and at the same time process all the decorations into the church and put them in place.  The impact will be enormous as people see the church being adorned for Easter Day in front of them.
