Beauty and the Bakery

May 31, 2011

I’ll be honest, if I didn’t get my degree in design, I’m pretty sure I would have ended up in pastry school! These little bakeries, pastry shops and confectionery wonders are so lovely and quaint. And the treats they bake up – I can only imagine how YUMMY they must be!

I don’t know about you, but I could stare at these colorfully scrumptious photos all day long…

Wedding Inspiration

Love is in the Air

May 24, 2011

With the Memorial Day holiday approaching, I thought it would be cute to show that some love birds can incorporate military-like planes and red, white, and blue themes into their weddings. This kind of idea doesn’t always have to be over the top with stars and stripes all over the place! It can be done tastefully with hints of color and subtle airplane accessories here and there. As for the photos on the airport runway… Well, those are for the real lucky brides and grooms! Amazingly awesome, right?

It’s only Tuesday but have a fun and safe holiday weekend, everyone!

Classic Style: Tents

May 23, 2011

Hello everyone! Well, this is my last post as a Flights of Fancy intern! I can’t believe how fast the time went, but it was such an amazing experience. I had so much fun sharing gorgeous inspiration with you and I hope you enjoyed. Thank you to the Flights of Fancy team for all their lovely support, guidance, and comments, and thank you to YOU! Keep reading!

But now, before I leave…let’s talk tents. And I’m not talking just any ordinary rental tents, I’m talking gorgeous, stripe-y, billow-y, circus-y tents that make a huge statement. No practical reason necessary to use them, do it just for fun. Plus they’re gorgeous!
