A friend of mine is requesting a two tiered cake using a blue background with yellow and beige dots and a loopy bow on top for her sister's baby shower. I don't like the idea of mixing the beige and yellow, but that is just my opinion.

Does anyone have a picture of something along those lines that I can see before I make a decision on telling her that its not the best color combo? Maybe it can look good, I just can't picture it in my head. I told her that I would try to find something similiar so that she can see what it looks like in front of her before commiting to it.

I tried looking through the galleries, but it came up with 600 pages that are impossible to get through to find "the one". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!

Hmm....I looked at a pic on google images of beige with yellow flowers and it didnt look bad...but I would have probably chosen a different 2 colors...white and yellow or light yellow and dark yellow.

This says it is all yellow, but could that pass as beige and yellow? It doesnt look bad at all.

Without searching 100s of pages lol, that was all I found on CC. I dont think it would look terrible, as long as you didnt make the beige too dark. I hope I was of some help icon_smile.gif.

Sounds hideous! I found the colour combination - not a cake, and I think the beige is more orange. I hope it attaches...

I thought that beige was more along the lines of a khaki color. If I am right then I don't think that it would look bad at all.. if I am wrong then it might look horrible

That is what I am thinking of as beige as well...the khaki color.

i found this cake on google that says it is beige and yellow except it is a very light beige almost like a cream:

If it was like this colour it wouldn't look bad except like they did, you would just need to go for a softer yellow to blend more with the beige i reackon

Otherwise you could try and just compromise changing beige to an ivory or creamier colour?

I was thinking a little darker on the beige, but I totally think that beige (almost khaki color) and pastel yellow, and light blue would look good.

Thank you all so much! I'm going to try to forward that color swatch, thanks to jamiekwebb. I hope she decides to go with something else. Maybe blue with yellow and white/ivory or blue with beige and white/ivory. I think that her other sister wants to decorate with yellow flowers and thought that it could be tied into the cake, but I think I might have to convince her otherwise icon_wink.gif Thanks again!

if not just aske her if you can do beige with yellow and blue dots, I think that would look better.

Biege can mean alot of different shades. I would thnk more along the lines of Ivory then add the sky blue and a sunny yellow. I think it could be really pretty and soft. I keep a deck of paint chips around for when i need color inspiration.

Sand sun and surf! I'm thinking beige would work if it was toned more to a pale beach sand colour than brown.
