{Celebrate} Celebrate SPRING with DAFFODIL DAY!!!

This past week has just been tremendous here in Melbourne with the sun shining so bright and the rays warming my heart from the chill of Winter!  It is Amazing how a little sunshine can brighten your world and lift your mood!!  It definitely seems like Spring has come a little early this year and the garden seems to think so too!!!  There are blossoms blooming on Fruit trees and the HUGE tree in our yard is no longer bare but with luscious green leaves and the Freesia's and lavender fan their fragrance in the light breeze.

There is just something so invigorating about Spring and you can not help but feel happy and that is why l LOVE Daffodil Day!!  It is not only a wonderful cause with so many people being affected by Cancer but you can't help but feel happy when you see a display of daffodils in all their yellow glory!  Daffodils mean cheerfulness to me and l can't help but smile as l gaze at my daffodil's in my old glass Passata jars on my kitchen table!

I was inspired early this week when l popped by Mon Tresor http://montresor.com.au/index.php  and their GORGEOUS array of products!  I already have my shopping list and can't wait to place an order once some of their new products are in stock!   Whilst browsing l came across their Lovely Navy and White Plates and matching napkins and thought wow pair this with daffodils and what an amazing and striking colour combination to celebrate Spring and to help a cause by having a Daffodil Day Morning Tea!  Unfortunately l was a bit late with my planning this year and didn't have the opportunity to host a morning tea but l did put together a little display for you and hope this inspires people to donate to the Cancer Council by buying a bunch of Daffodils on Friday August 26th from their local supermarkets or to donate online http://www.daffodilday.com.au/content/get-involved

Now I did cheat this week and did not bake these cupcakes (bought from coles mmm not quite the same as home baked!!  Very SUGARY!!) but l did decorate them with some lovely sugar flowers l bought from my local cake decorating store BORG'S Cakes and l think they came up a treat!  I had plans to also bake some lemon curd tarts with blueberry's which l made the week prior and to also make some carrot cake pops but l had very limited time before the rain was to come so l had to photograph without them but l think you will agree that it still looks very appealing and captures SPRING!

Hope you have enjoyed this post which l put together with items l had lying about the house!  Please go and buy some Daffodils tomorrow for Daffodil Day and bring a bit of sunshine into your homes whilst helping the Cancer Council help those with Cancer!

So on that note, don't forget to Bake, Create and Celebrate!
Take Care
