I have a request for a Peacock theme wedding cake. The bride wants the torqoise colors (blues & greens) with peacock feathers incorporated in them. I can picture this as being very unique and pretty in its on way.

I think I need to stay away from roses, what do you think??? icon_rolleyes.gif

I will be using silk flowers by the way icon_lol.gif

The roses might work if you use white ones. Sounds like a cool cake. I hope you will post a picture.

White roses does sound elegant, but the bride wants colored flower with just a few peacock feathers to accent.

Please keep the ideas coming, thanks.

Off to work now.

In this picture there is a rust/orange color around the spots on the feathers. You could do a rust colored roses with that beautiful green in foliage of some kind...I know there is a green hydranga that would match, but not sure if roses and hydrangas go together.....

here are different colored flowers that could work...

this website has silk florals in a huge assortment of colors that would work!

Good Luck!

I like the Lillies like star gazers. You could buy the sugar flowers already made and add luster dust to color them.

Thanks to all for your replies. The bride is leaning more towards the blue and greens, not so much the rust/orages....

I plan to go a look around this weekend to see what I can find. I have until the end of August....
