While we are on the topic of circus acts and classic American style, I thought that these Boutique Tents were fitting. They can be used any where from weddings to cabanas. They are made of aluminum and can be left outside year round.
This tent creates a unique out door room and would be a perfect spot for an outdoor lunch or a children's tea party.
This tent is from the Viceroy Palm Springs, California luxury resort and spa. It serves as a great shelter for dinning al fresco, an intimate pavilion for parities or to just hang out, and it adds so much to the daily atmosphere.
The last two images, via shelter, show the timeless use of the black and white tents as pool cabanas.
