This relative of a friend is very specific. She said this will be a fall wedding and she wants to stick to that theme for the shower. She would like a spring avocado green square cake, about 4 inches tall to emulate a gift with leaves on top emulating a bow in the color of coral and gold. I could also throw in some brown acorns if I want. Ideas? Pictures?

Did she give you a color sample? I have no idea what spring avacodo is.

No, she does not have a sample. I looked up some wedding invites and have a pretty good idea of what she is looking for. Good thing is the tables will be decorated with white table clothes and clear plates. She said she might have golden yellow flowers on the tables....

Scroll down a bit and the 4th green one is called dull dark spring, avacado green...
good luck

tiggy, i imagine spring green or avacado to be sort of the green on your avatar cake. maybe with a hint of brown to it. not a celery or mint but in that zone i guess.

Mommy of 3 dds: What a great chart! Thanks! Does anyone else think this will be ugly. I am trying to wrap my mind around it but...I am afraid I will be making an ugly cake thumbsdown.gif

I think the coral and the green will be fine... it's the gold that scares me. I'll try to put together a color sample with all three colors when I get home from school.

another CCr created this thread asking for different advise, but she posted a pic that shows coral and green with white... That will give you an idea... I am still not sure about gold though...
Good Luck!
