my daughter and her two best friends are graduating from high school. they couldn't decide on a theme for the combined cake, so they asked me to come up with something as long as it contains the following:

colors- black, white, and gold
flowers- calla lillies
grad cap w/year
butterflies-pink, blue, and purple

so...this is what i came up with.

my daughter said its too much black...what do you think???

i did this in microsoft paint...just messing around and copying and pasting!

I personally love the design an I don't think there is too much black. But if she does, then I think I would try to simplify the cornelli lace. Other than that, I think this will turn out really beautiful.

Maybe just make the cornelli lace white on white and then there won't be too much black. Nice!

I think it is beautiful, sophisticated and elegant. But if your client thinks there is too much black...You can always tell her she's grounded if she disagrees with the decorator!!! icon_lol.gif

Since you have black cornelli (sp?), you could make the drapes whites and then the cap and ribbons gold. Just a thought! I agree though, if she doesn't agree or like it....SHE'S GROUNDED! icon_wink.gif

that's funny...maybe i should ground her...she's getting this cake for free...which is to feed over a hundred people.

doing the cornelli lace white is an option...great idea.

umgrzfn...i'm gonna try it on ms paint and see what it would look like. i work better when i have something to look at. icon_wink.gif

I think it looks great. If you want to cut the black a little maybe make the ribbon a slimmer boarder. Plus I think it looks a little more black because of the way the ms paint did the swags, if they are going to be solid gold I think it will be great!
