My late daffodils and early tulips overlap each other, making it nice for me to use in floral arrangements.  I cut the tulips either early morning or late evening when they are still closed and plunge immediately in water with a floral preservative. (They will open up nicely when in daylight, then close up again at night).  Cut daffodils when still in the bud, but beginning to open up.  Keep your daffodils in a separate container until arranging--they have a substance that you've probably noticed when cutting that is sticky, containing an enzyme that could affect the other types of blooms you have in your arrangement.  When needed, arrange and enjoy.  These arrangements should last a week or more.
