Summer Cloche Party


Yea!!! Our Summer Cloche Party is finally here. I am so glad you joined us and I can't wait to see all of your creations.

This picture shows a variety of "cloches" A cheese dome on top of a scale filled with faux cheese and grapes, my rooster cloche filled with apples and lemons, a large dome cloche filled with family heirlooms, and an apothecary jar with some noodles. When grouped together, they make a pretty vignette. It ddoesn't have to be anything fancy to elevate any item to a higher level. Just put it under glass and it is instand chic.


A close up of some of my sweet heirlooms. My mother's and grandmother's syrup pitchers, some old spoons in my mom's little cut glass pitcher and my grandmothers etched salt and pepper shakers.


A small cloche worked into the island vignette.


Just a cork pear under a cloche, add a tassel and instant elegance.


Same cloche moved over to the counter vignette.


A cloche vignette for the bathroom too.


Shells, starfish and of course candles is all it takes.


Love this cameo shell that we got in the Bahamas years ago.


Maybe some cheese, wine and a little fruit. Perfect to take out to the patio.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits and can't wait to see your beautiful vignettes.

  2. What a great size your cloches are Marty! I got a small one, but I'd love to get something a bit larger that might work as a centerpiece on my dining room table. Seeing as I only got the small one recently, I am holding out hope for a little bit bigger one.

  9. You ALWAYS do such a nice job with your cloches and you always inspire us!! You should be a stylist. I think this is the first time I've seen your bath and it is so elegant and pretty. Love all the beachy things! Love the vignette in your kitchen, too.

    I have a hard time finding cloches and I wish I were more creative in using them. I will, however, visit everyone in the party and maybe come up with ideas. Nicely done!

  29. What a precious idea, using your family heirlooms as features! So special and pretty. I love the bathroom cloche, too~ all those little starfish and that gorgeous cameo shell. You did a fantabulous job, once again, Marty. I had a crazy busy week, so I threw a few together last minute. If you have a fall party, I will plan ahead a lot better. :-)
