Metamorphosis Monday - Holiday Cloche Party



Thanks again to Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for hosting this wonderful event. Be sure to check out her blog and see her wonderful transformations and all the other participants.


I can't wait to see the metamorphosis of all these wonderfu cloches into their holiday finery for the "Holiday Cloche Party". We will have the next "Cloche Party" on December 4th. That will give us a month to get them all ready and photographed. This time we will show our Thanksgiving and Christmas decorated cloches. So be sure to take pics of all of your cloches for both holidays.


Below are a few examples of some of the gorgeous cloches from the "Fall Cloche Party". I just copied a few pictures from the last party to show as examples here. I hope you don't mind if I copied your picture. I just wanted to show a little inspiration from the last party.
























If you don't have a cloche, there were several tutorials on how to make one, so if you want to make your own check out this post here. Infarrantly Creative has given the easiest instructions.

I just chose these at random, and aren't there some of the most creative people in the world in blogland. Remember that you can use your apothecary jars and your cloches to join the party.

Be sure to copy the button on my sidebar and post it on your blog to help announce the "Holiday Cloche Party" to all of your friends. I can hardly wait to see all the wonderful creations everyone has to share with us.

  2. Marty, can't wait to see all the creative ideas at your next party. I will try to put something together but since my daughter and grandbaby will be living with us, I'm limited to what I can put out with a one year old! :)

  5. You have some gorgeous cloches.

    Thanks for your sweet comments. I am very proud of all 4. Typically their conduct is outstanding. We, almost always, have people stop by our table, when we are out to eat, to comments on all 4 kids behavior. It always shpcks me that people notice.

  7. Hi Marty! For my life I have not been able to find a cloche any where here in S. Calif....we have no Hobby Lobby...and our Michaels never even heard of them...
    I got a dazed confused look and someone saying "A What?" Oh my...it is a different world here than the rest of the country.
    Could you please tell me where else to look for a cloche. Only if you have loads of free time....big smile!
    Thank you dear one!
    I'm a frustrated farmer's wife looking for a little refinement in her life! Bigger smile!
    Blessings,

  32. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I look forward to being a part of your holiday cloche party. I pulled out some Christmas decorations yesterday to get some ideas for my cloche. This is going to be so much fun, Reminds me of when I was a little girl and dressed up my dollhouse for christmas. My dollhouse was a shoebox or any kind of empty container that I could fit my barbie in. This is going to be so much fun. Thanks for hosting this fun party.

  46. Hi Marty,
    I'm sorry to have missed your party! I'll see if I can make the next one! Still no cloche but now I see a cake stand with top can serve as one....I do have a beautiful one of those! Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Marty, I'll plan to join in with my apothecary jar since my cloche is still packed away in the warehouse. But beware, since closing on the new house will only be a few days away, it will not be one you'll want to share!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I still don't have one. I like the reference you made to making one...it may happen some day!! but in the meantime I will have to enjoy everyone elses!
