Hi and thank you to all that replied :-) We put balloons up everywhere and had daffodils on the tables and also at the front counter. Yes Talita I'm already in the Facebook group :-)

The past couple of years I have organised an actual fund raising day for Cancer. My Volunteers assist me with providing a beautiful morning tea for our Residents and also I invite Residents from other facilities to join us. We have merchandise on sale and daffodils for purchase. Tables are set up with yellow cloths and daffodils made from paper decorate the table. I have arranged for a musician to entertain Residents and visitors while they enjoy their morning tea. A gold coin donation box is placed on each table for donations which goes to the Cancer fund.
An invitation to families is mailed in advanced inviting them to join us.
It is a great, interactive, meaningful, social morning.

Hi Sandra,

This is a good one for us to keep in mind for next year!

Have you joined the Facebook Group? If you do so and search for 'Daffodil' you will find some lovely craft ideas.

Thanks Sandra.

Sandra. this year I am focusing on the colour yellow. I have decorated one corner of the room with everything yellow I could find. I have researched the history of daffodils and the colour yellow. how it makes people feel. I have found some poems about daffodils. I bought some yellow cups from the op shop which we will use and have bought yellow food to have on the day. for my mens group I have downloaded all the brands which have yellow in them. like yellow pages, dewalt, boral etc and they have to try and think of brands that have yellow in them. I will put the pictures on the white board. last year we made daffodils out of felt which turned out well. I only briefly mention what daffodil day is about. we don't dwell on it.
