 It will cheer you up after the long winter nights.


Use thin yellow card or paper as a basis for your invitation. Either design on the computer & print off as an A4 sheet or fold in half & hand-write the details. Alternatively, print out our daffodil invitation & write the details on the back.

As with any theme, introduce it into as many aspects of the party as possible without going overboard but don’t feel you have to rush out and buy yellow plates & cutlery. Accessorize & add other colours to make life easier for you. Green & white can be included in the colour scheme & the yellow added using napkins, candles, flowers, place cards & balloons.

If including green in the colour scheme, foliage is very versatile & can be used as part of the centre piece or trailing over the table. Arrange around yellow candles for an attractive table decoration; just remember to keep an eye out that nothing catches fire! A small posy could also be laid on each guests napkin with place card attached.

Ribbon is another versatile material since it comes in such a range of colours. Opt for just one colour or maybe try 2 or 3 different shades of yellow tied to glasses, picture frames or foliage.

For larger gatherings, tie helium-filled balloons to a long length of ribbon & tie the other end of the ribbon to a purse of sand or salt. The balloons will then hover at the required height. Always group balloons in odd numbers for greater effect.

Ask guests to come wearing at least one item of yellow clothing so that they tie in with the theme. It’s amazing what you can find at the back of a wardrobe or cheaply at a charity shop if need be.
