A woman is standing in the middle of all of her friends holding a cake. The woman as well as everyone standing around her are admiring the light that the fire from the candles give off. You can tell that the mood is happy there because everyone is smiling and hovering around the light.

Why does the fire have that affect on people?

Yellow is a color most often associated with happiness, so it naturally makes sense to use it as a warm background.
