      Color Craze: Spectra Yellow and Flame

      Spectra Yellow and Flame - JulRe Designs LLC

      This duo brings passion, high energy, happiness and the joy of the Summer season. And with current temperatures not willing to climb higher than late Fall levels in some places, we could all use a little boost from the hotness of this color combo. 

      There isn't any reason why Summer can't be eternal. Spectra Yellow embraces happiness and throws it back out to you with full-on bright. Flame brings the heat and adds spice to the mix. Let's revel in this color mashup!

      But first, a celebratory colorful mocktail are on me!

      We chose this luxe duo to celebrate our moms.  Even though we here at the Color Lab celebrate moms everywhere every day, it’s always nice to do something special for mom on Mother’s Day.  I love Mother’s Day and make sure to celebrate the moms in my life every year with a special thank you for their hard work in raising the next generation of little thinkers and doers.

      It’s all about the throwback with this craze!

      Golden Rod and Bronze Brown brings us back to the groovy 70s, when bold color combos were so fly. The warm Golden Rod pairs so well with the smooth Bronze Brown for a far out combo. Can you dig it?

      The Food Charlatan’s brown sugar yellow cake with chocolate frosting is the perfect companion to this smooth craze.  It’s sweet, warm and gooey with a rich and decadent finish.  I know I will be serving this cake for a rich summer dessert soon.  Find the recipe here!
