Fall Cloche Party

HI everyone, hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today I am excited to be joining Marty at A Stroll thru Life for her Fall Cloche Party.

If you ask me, there’s just something special about a cloche.

No matter what you place that glass dome over suddenly it becomes more noticeable, magical, and even more eerie.

I realize that a lot of you will have seen most of these in a previous post.

Hopefully their worth seeing for a second time.

I used a couple on my ‘NEVERMORE’ mantel and hearth.

This cloche helped to corral my party animal spider.

These non edible cupcakes sure look tempting under glass.  They seem to say, “I double dare you to eat me!”

Now for a little bit of that eeriness that I mentioned. . .

This sunflower cloche held a sunflower candle.

While a simple pumpkin makes you take notice.

And if one pumpkin is good, three might be even better.

No matter what the season, cloches add visual interest in any room of the house.  Wouldn’t you agree?

Hugs,

Jann

Hi Jann, I couldn't agree more, something about a cloche! I have one on my hutch now with a candle and fall fruit and greens and will enjoy it until Thanksgiving.
I love how you use your bottles and I just love the black house under the cloche. I have one like it I'm using, given to me from a dear friend. Fun cloche eeriness for the young set but my favorites are the goodies under the dome! Yummy and pretty treats.........
Happy Halloween!

You really are in the creative mood Jann! I'm amazed at all your cloches. I have a hard enough time just coming up with one. I like how you have the one on the scale since they are so popular right now. Have a great week!

Hi Jann!
What wonderful cloches...and, they're sure nice when it comes to dusting. I love that tiny little bow legged spider (cause he's not alive, of course).
I guess it's time to dig out a few of my cloches and get somethings under glass!
Have a happy week, my cute friend,

You have so many beautiful cloches & all are displayed wonderfully!

SmilingSally said...

I totally agree, Jann. Your placing a cloche over a simple pumpkin proves how valuable they are.

Infuse With Liz said...

I agree Jann the cloche's really add a special feeling to an object! You have some really neat ones! Love the skull and bones! Perfect for this time of year!!

They are great Jan. I never knew that it was called a Choche ~ learn something every day on the blogs.

Oh goodness, such fun cloches and with such imagination, wow! Yeah, everything under glass takes a different life, style and beauty..even skulls, lol! Thanks for the tip on what they're called, who knew! I always used to call them domes, not cloches really. I specially love the one with the Halloween cup cakes and the pedestal is gorgeous in black and orange. Happy Cloche Party!

I love the halloween cloches. One question, though, Where did you get the GREAT skull? The one with the black rose and ribbon on the dome.

Are those pumpkins naturally striped or did you paint them??
