Daffodils are among the cheapest and cheeriest flowers you'll find to buy. A bunch of these stars of late winter and early spring looks good just placed in a simple vase, but if you want to be a little more creative, here are five quick and easy ideas to display daffodils and narcissi.
Group together painted tins filled with short-trimmed daffodils. You can leave the tins unpainted if you prefer. Add a pretty finishing touch by tying with ribbon.
Take two bunches of daffodils. Trim the stems of one bunch so that the flowers rest on the edge of a cylindrical vase. Leave the stems of the other bunch untrimmed and place in the centre of the ring of shorter daffodils.
Daffodils don't suit formality, so keep it casual: group a small posy of daffodils and narcissi in a storage jar - ideal for brightening up the kitchen.
Brighten up a breakfast tray with small narcissi trimmed to sit neatly in an eggcup - ideal for Easter, too.
Make a small hole in the top of an egg, poke a skewer inside to pierce the yolk, then tip out the contents. Fill the shell with water and use to show off a mini posy of narcissi with sprigs of any other small flowers you wish. And, of course, this looks particularly pretty on an Easter table.
