I need some help/ideas for a Bridal Shower Cake serving 45-50 ppl.

They want a Fall "elegeant" cake with chocolate, burnt orange and ivory colors. They would also like baby gerber dasies, orchids and sunflowers on the cake. (strange mix)

I was thinking of doing ivory buttercream with burnt orange ribbon around the bottom of each tier. But thats as far as Ive gotten. Any ideas or pics would be appreciated.

There's a cake in my pics that has that color scheme. It is iced in ivory BC, has a choc. BC ribbon & bow around each tier, and piped flowers in shades of yellow, purple and orange, includes gerber daisies, mums, and roses. I personally would keep the oranges in the flowers, but it's not my cake.

Actually, Gerber daisies, sunflowers, and orchids isn't such a strange combination. Sunflowers are yellow & brown, very fall looking, and Gerber daisies come in many fall colors, indluding orange, and orchids can come in a vairety of colors. I'm picturing one in particular I've seen, I think it's an oncidium?, that is bold with orange-red spots, but dedrobiums come in shades of yellow and purple.

I did a bride gown cake and the color scheme was burnt orange and chocalate brown.

I thought it was a strange combination..but it turned out nice.
