It’s finally March – only the best month ever! I mean, think about it… part of Mardi Gras, Pi Day (yum!), Saint Patrick’s Day, the start of Spring, and of course, it’s the start of wedding season! Besides all these big events, I love that the weather is slowly becoming less cold and starting to really warm up. It’s all about being able to enjoy an afternoon walk in the park and enjoying the beautiful world outside. Fun fact: March’s birth flower is the Daffodil. These beautiful yellow flowers are one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring, which is why they symbolize rebirth and hope. If you’re planning an event in March, why not incorporate a couple daffodils to brighten the place?
These daffodil candy cups are the perfect for decoration or even place cards. You simply cut out a daffodil template on decorative paper and glue on a cupcake cup in the center. Fill the cupcake cup with any candy you’d like – jelly beans, mints, gummy bears, and more. They’re perfect for the table at any party. They’d be great for an Easter party! (via Martha Stewart)
Another great way to decorate for an Easter party is to display some daffodils as centerpieces. Whether it’s finding vintage glasses or just using glasses around your home, they would make great vases! Daffodils are one of the easiest spring flowers to plant, so let’s get growing!

For those who are semi-OCD, like myself, these coasters are a great to have out when you have a party at your house. People can place their iced tea or soda onto these four inch squares… after they oogle about how cute they are. I LOVE this daffodil design – it’s bright, clean, and fresh! (It’s almost as good as having fresh daffodils in the home! Almost!) (via Etsy – Red Bird Ink)
Cakes and cupcakes are the best things ever, don’t you agree? If your guest of honor has allergies, this cake is the best way to give her a bouquet of flowers… without irritating her nose! I would love this cake! If you want to have cupcakes instead, you can decorate your cupcakes with mini daffodils! The combination of one daffodil and a bouquet of daffodils details are way too adorable! They’re almost too pretty to eat! If only I could stop myself… (via Cake Central and Cotton and Crumbs)
With both Easter and Spring coming up, it’d be a great idea to start growing some daffodils so you can show them off at your parties and events! Whether they’re flowers in bouquets, flower designs on coasters, or daffodil cakes, they’re a wonderful component of an event. I promise, they’ll brighten up the room!
