Holiday Cloche Party



I am so excited that the "Holiday Cloche Party" has finally arrived. I can't wait to see all the gorgeous cloches and apothecary jars that you have all created.

I've shown you most of my creations already as I have been reminding you of the party. I've taken my 4 cloches and 1 apothecary jar and tried to make as many different arrangements in them that I could dream up for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now I can't wait to see what all you guys have done and really get inspired.









































Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to sign in to Mr. Linky below so everyone can find you. I really look forward to visiting everyone and seeing all of your gorgeous displays and vignettes. Thank you so much for participating. Also please vote on the poll on my sidebar for when you would like to have the next "Cloche Party". I can't wait until we do this again.

Thanks so much for hosting this super fun party...I'm anxious to glean some inspiration from everyone else :)

  41. Marty,

    Your cloches are fabulous. You have provided so much inspiration. I especially like the idea of tying the ribbon on top. I don't really have an proper cloches. Will have to add that to my "to buy" list. I've been inspired by your parties to see cloches in a different way!

    Thanks so much for being a lovely and gracious hostess for this fun party.

  52. Marty, I'm a bit late tonight but didn't want to miss your party. These are always so much fun. I didn't think I had anything to share, but found some inspiration on Monday. Love seeing all that you shared in this post. It would be difficult to select a favorite as they are all so beautifully done. But the rooster did call out my name! LOL
    Thanks again for hosting this fun event. I'm off to see what others have shared. ~ Sarah

    I would have loved to participate but the decorator's house is always the last to be decorated.

  64. Marty,

    It is snowing here in SE Texas and is beautiful! It looks like you got a few new cloches since fall. I love the red girl and the blue ball and the kitchen collectible ones the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh my, such beauty! You are so talented...I love them all.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Marty, these are wonderful! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I'm crazy about your glittery shells and also the silver pieces you've showcased. I am going to go back and examine all of them carefully. Great job!

    I found out about this late (I guess I was asleep at the switch), and I quickly tried to get something together. Shot it all, and then my computer access went out. I've been having issues with it. So I couldn't get my pictures loaded. It was off and on all day. Then I've had a workman here all this morning. So I guess it wasn't meant to be. Sigh. I hope to do this with you all again at some point if you host another cloche party.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  71. Hello sweetie...
    Marty I had to stop by and say hi, and tell you what a wonderful time I have had with this cloche party. You haven't stopped by yet and viewed my cloches. Make sure you do. I think you will be pleased. I am getting better at them, and this time I had more time to prepare. One of them in particular, you will just adore. It has been the favorite so far.

    I just wanted to thank you for hosting this wonderful party. We grew in size from the last one that you held. Loving it.

    As always you have eye candy beauty in your cloches. I love them, and thank you so much for sharing. You are a rare jewel.

    Country hugs and much love...Sherry

  78. I'm late Marty...but I finally made it. I wanted to have all my Christmas decorating done, and I'm almost there but life has intruded all week. Why do humans have to work everyday...what is wrong with this picture...it interferes with my ability to have fun. Thanks so much for hosting. Now, I'm off to start looking at what everyone has created.

  80. Marty, your cloches are just lovely. Every single one!

    I am so sorry I couldn't participate. My husband had a medical procedure performed on Thursday and I was just swamped and too emotional. Hopefully, I will make the next one.

  81. Hi Marty,
    I am Lynn at Romantic Cottage Dreamer. My blog is only a couple of months old and I am learning the ropes slowly. I work full time so my passion for blogging has to take second place to my day job right now. I stopped in to check out all the wonderful cloches at your party today. Gosh, so much inspiration. I am only thru 8 guests so far as I want to leave a comment on each so I can introduce myself. I hope to join your next party in January. Before then I have to learn how to do this with the linking. Your cloches are just stunning. Too difficult to pick just one favorite! Hope to be at your party in Janaury.
    Merry Christmas.
    Lynn
    PS I am working my way through everyone's and making a comment, but wow you sure had a huge party and my life is so busy right now, but I just love blogging and meeting new people and all the inspirational ideas. By the time I get through all of these it will be time for the January party. Thank you for hosting this.

I also just adore that sweet little "December girl" figurine...she's sooo pretty! Sooo...so many beautiful ideas! You're such an inspiration to me!

  90. Marty, Every one of your cloches is just magnificent. You have such a knack putting them together and making them look nice in a vignette. Thanks so much for hosting the party, once again. I love the nativity under glass, using Gloria's moss. I need to use what she sent me when I set mine up. Hopefully next week. I am so behind, what with this crazy head of mine. I am grateful that it wasn't worse, though. Once again, I loved everything you designed. hugs, Sue
