A Host of Golden Daffodils!!

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
..........when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils. 
 I have always loved this poem!!! Wordsworth's words inspire me so much.... the imagery used in this poem is so realistic that I can almost see, touch and smell those host of golden daffodils!!!!
      The weekend has been so relaxing and fun with the kids being on spring break and the weather here is finally starting to warm up!!! The much awaited summer is going to be here soon.......my seedlings are starting to sprout gradually and I'm so excited!!! My husband and I visited the local nursery on Saturday for onion and potato seed for our garden.  I'm looking forward to the end of this week when two of my closest friends are coming over and I'm planning on a supper party to wrap up two weeks of break!!! Keeping up with the spring-Easter theme, I thought I will use the spring color theme for my supper table with a host of those golden daffodils as my center piece...
        Aren't they just divine!!!!!!! 
I have a passion for Fiestaware and these sunflower yellow salt and pepper shakers are my inspiration for this tablescape!!!
 
I adore this azure blue vase I picked up from the local Joann  store couple years back...
This hurricane lamp reminds me of a beautiful lady dressed up in an evening gown, don't you agree?





  I used the white French stoneware dinner plate and mixed in blue fiestaware salad plate for my place setting:

A little close-up on the plates!!!!







These napkin holders are very cute, especially the little bird peeking through is simply adorable... the colors go so perfectly with my spring theme!!!!

No spring tablescape is complete without a cute bunny and some lemon yellow and blue jelly beans!!!!

I loved putting all these elements together for this beautiful tablescape!!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this journey. You are always welcome for a visit and I'll be  looking forward for all your lovely comments!!!!
I'm partying this week with all these wonderful people in blog land. Be sure to visit them. You will be surprised at the host of creative people out there and will surely walk away with so many inspiring ideas!!!
