I am currently working on a anniversary cake for my parents, and can't quite get the colors down. It will be mostly white with a white royal icing gazebo (of sorts). I am hoping to have pastel orange and some green shades, but I want some other colored flowers to go with the pastel orange. Any ideas?
My suggestion would be a very pale pink w/the edges &/or center a slightly darker shade.
Pale blue would be a complementary color to the pale orange and I love how they look together...like that retro look we see everywhere. I also love a lilac shade with orange as well. It makes a nice contrast.
I also thought about what aldonza suggests - but I like pinks :) You could probably work all of those together.
I am making roses for a 50th anniversary in December and the lady loves yellow roses. I've made several yellow roses and thought they were getting really boring, so I included a few in a nice peachy tone and it really made it pop. I also intend to use small deep maroon accents. Since you are already in the orange range, maybe add a few pale yellow and I, too, like the idea of pink.
So sorry... I actually had the cake made before I saw these last three comments, oops! Thank you so much for all your suggestions! I ended up doing Orange, (which was a little too dark), Navy (?) blue, Teal, and a dark green for the leaves. I failed on the roof of the gazebo... I had two panels (of the roof) dry and ready, but the last two would just not dry! I ended up putting an (embarrassing) Wax paper cone for the roof :(. But hey! I had the best mud cake recipe on the planet! So it ended up all right ;).
I'll get a picture to you guys soon! God Bless!
