Flatware Cloche

Yesterday, I showed you my tablescape without food and today I decided to show you the same table with food and with the centerpiece a little switched around. I hope you will take a look at the bottom of this post and then visit Gollum at all her participants to see lots of yummy food.

I had a lot of inquiries about the flatware cloche that I showed with my tablescape yesterday. So, I took more pictures and decided to link with Kelli's Show and Tell at

Noah was so excited to eat with the grown ups in the "fancy" (that's what he called it, lol) dining room. He thought it was such a big treat and he felt so grown up since his younger brother and sister did not get the same privilege.
We had Spanish yellow rice, roasted red potatoes with rosemarie, zucchini with shrimp, flan and red wine (except for Noah and John who do not drink except for diet coke). I used a dozen egg yolks for flan so I used the whites and made merengue balls.
Here is a close up of the flatware.
and a close up of the cloche
I am sorry the pictures are not that great but it is not easy to take pictures at night of a cloche. You can't really use a flash cause it reflects on the glass and I was just too busy to set up the tripod.
Here's an even close picture. The dome includes the wooden stand inside. The glass is very heavy. When I lift it up, I have to support the base with my other hand.
I hope these pictures answer your questions. Thanks, Gollum and Kelli for hosting and I really appreciate you all for visiting.

You set a beautiful table, Christine. The food sounds and looks terrific! I have always wanted to make a flan. Do you have a good recipe?

The cloche is very cool. Do you use it for display? It is beautiful! Noah looks like he is having a blast!!

Great post, my friend.

Hi I know this is an old post but i stumbled upon it on Pinterest and I LOVE the cloche & pipe stand, so i actually went and found a huge cloche, and got a pipe stand to put my goldtone flatware on but i have a problem. My pieces won't stay put like yours, the look so neat! Did you do anything to make them fit in the holes snugly? (Is that a word?)

I thought I could use twist ties for the pieces so they don't slide around but that would show? What do you think of using a kind of foam rope of some kind, to lines the inside of the slots? Maybe that would hold them in?

Think i'll try a craft store or wall mart, i'll be glad to post a photo if i can get it done right. Eager to see if mine will be as nice as yours.
