Poppy red isn’t usually one to make an appearance during wedding season – especially not during the summertime. Being so close in color tone with primary red, it would often be paired with colors to reflect specific themes and reasons of celebration. For instance, when paired with green or white, people think Christmas; when paired with blue, people think America. Imagine our surprise as we discovered another color-combo fit for our current sun-kissed season! Poppy red, paired with lighter hues of blue or aqua – “robin egg blue”, as we would like to call it. This juxtaposed pairing not only successfully steers clear of both Christmastime and American themes, but it manages also to exert its own quality and ambience!

Perhaps it’s due to the strawberries pooled at its base that the cake now knows how to maintain its summer day vibes with its otherwise red-and-blue exterior!
