If Rainbow Brite Made Desserts, she would make Macarons

It's true. Macarons [not to be confused with 'macaroons', which are similar but typically made with coconut] are so pretty, so colorful, so delicate and lovely, only the finest 80s cartoon character would appreciate such a delicacy. Okay, I'm being mildly sarcastic, but macarons really are something special! To celebrate my mom's birthday, we started the morning off delivering a dresser [she's a real trooper!] and followed it up with a trip to Douceur de France, an amazing little French Bakery and Cafe in Marietta, Georgia. Their chicken pot pie is a revelation. But I digress...we usually celebrate special occasions with macarons, since we both love them, and this day was no exception! Here's a selection of photos I shot of these magical treats.  My particular favorites are the ones I styled using mums from my garden!
