A Christmas Cloche Party

I forgot to upload this so I am going to add it. After all, t'is the reason for the season.
December sure is a month for parties, isn't it? This time it is a Christmas cloche party hosted by Marty. Go to her site at and you will see her cloche collection along with her list of participants' entries.

I love this picture! I love the reflection of the white Christmas tree on the window.
As soon as Marty announced that she was having a party on this day, I immediately got busy so I could attend. And here are all my contributions. I hope you enjoy them!

A salt and pepper set of cardinals with a candle holder with a cardinal painted on it is sitting on our game table in the family room.
I had different sizes of cloches on the kitchen nook table after I created them before Thanksgiving. It was really too early to display them so I just kinda stored them there. Some of them are still there but I have distributed a few around the house.

The wire cloche has a candle holder with 2 snowmen in it.I like this view where it shows the Nativity wreath in the background.

This cherubim in a cloche is sitting on the lazy susan of our round kitchen table, in front of the fireplace. It is still too warm to put fire in the fireplace.

And these 2 cloches are outside by the pool picnic table. I placed some faux plants, that look very realistic, inside them so that I can look at some greenery after the leaves of the trees are all gone.

I hope you enjoyed the cloche party. Glad you could come!

Oh Christine, I am just in awe and drooling. YOu have some gorgeous cloches and you have decorated them all beautifully. I especially love the cut glass ones and the huge ones you have outside. I havn't ever seen any that big, and they are to die for. I linked you to the party. Thanks so much for joining and for showing such beautiful inspiration. Have a wonderful trip. Hugs, Marty

I am so happy I didn't miss your cloches!! I have never seen so many at one time in one home. All of them are gorgeous and look so pretty at night. I really love your wire cloches. For some reason I just like them more than glass...well just a little!! And the ones you have outside are to die for!!

I didn't join because I only have 2 cloches and they were in the last party. The arrangements inside are sort of permanent...

Have a great weekend. I am going back to your tablescape!! :-)

Christine, Your cloches are all so very pretty! I love the Christ Child and his parents in the first one and the cardinals are just precious. How fun to add the faux plants out on the patio. The wire cloche is so darn cute, with the snowmen. I enjoyed seeing your home all done up for the holidays.
hugs, Sue
