It's Cloche Party Again

It's time for Marty's Cloche party again. I did not have much time to prepare so I am only sharing a few, some of them I've already had in past posts as part of centerpieces. If you really want to see a lot of creatively decorated cloches, please visit Marty at You will be amazed how much creativity there is in Blogland. These are my 2 large wire cloches dressed up for fall on our formal dining table.

I bought this glass box from and filled it with faux ivy and small tea pots and cup. This is a cake plate that used to be kept on top of the book shelves in the hall. Since they still

have to work on our water damaged floors there, I have to keep the shelves empty and this was moved to the kitchen counter. To be creative and to save some counter room, I placed some Polish pottery divided plates inside it.

The insurance company finally sent our check but it still needs to be co signed by the mortgage holder. Then we can start ordering the wood floors. We could not find a perfect match but settled for something that is close enough.

I think I have at least 4 of these white ceramic single butter server cloches. I have 4 clear glass round and 4 square ones too that are kept somewhere.

John picked this up from one of the estate sales we went to in Baton Rouge. I put his low calorie snacks in it.

I bought this from TJ Maxx, or was it Home Goods? It used to sit inside my kitchen china cabinet but I moved it on the kitchen fireplace mantel.

This glass box is another one I bought from I decorated it with bird stuff and it is sitting on our breakfast nook table.

I used it as part of my centerpiece for a breakfast tablescape with my girl friends during our sleepover this past weekend. I will show the rest of the post perhaps on Thursday.

This is a very small cloche. I placed a small Infant Jesus of Prague inside it and it fits perfectly, then I added my turquoise cross with it. And do you see a button filled glass behind it? I put all extra buttons attached to shirts and coats when we buy them there.

Thank you so much, Marty, for hosting another fun cloche party

I guess this serves as your Tabletop Tuesday meme?

Thank you all for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits. Happy Halloween and Happy All Saints Day!

Ate naman? I really admire all your decos?

U seldom can find those things in Stockholm. I wish I am living in the countryside, kasi, you can find pretty old things.

Stockholm is more modern.

Hope you're in the best of everything. Hope the repairing of your floor is soon finish.

Happy Halloween and happy TTT...

All gorgeous but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the wire ones. The white one with rooster is cute and different too.

Oh Christine, I love them all. You do have some of the most beautiful cloches and I totally love the box terrarium ones. They are wonderful and you have such great displays inside them. The glass ones are all fantastic also, and the one with the rooster is so different. Thanks so much for joining the party. Such a treat to see all of them. Hugs, Marty

I like your wire cloches and am thinking I really would like a wire one too.

Cute crockery cloche with the chicken!

Sorry you have water damage and good luck with your new floors. I recognize how much work has to be done moving and packing up things.

All your cloches are wonderful! My favorite is the chicken. Never saw one like it.

Kathleen said...

So many pretty cloches!
I was just talking with my sister about the Infant of Praque. My son was just in Prague for a wk on business. I wondered if they were popular there.
We always had one in our home growing up.
