124th Table Top Tuesday-Special Announcement





Today I am going to do things a little differently, so I am starting the party early. I think it is time to have a SUMMER CLOCHE PARTY.!!! We havn't had a party to show off our cloches and how we decorate them since the spring, so we need to fluff them up and show them off.


Instead of TTT, let's have our Summer Cloche Party on 7/24.    That gives everyone time to dust them off if you aren't using them right now and put something together to join the party.  I can't wait to see them.

If you missed any of the posts from the Spring Party you can click here to see them all.  I am always amazed at how creative you all are and remember, this doesn't have to be a glass domed cloche.   Apothecary Jars, Mason Jars, Terrariums, Bird Cages, Hurricanes, Chicken Wire Cloches, Cheese/Cake Domes and any and everything that you can dream up to decorate under is fair game.  That's what makes it so interesting.  You guys are all so clever.

Here are a couple that I showed you this spring.  This is my favorite one on the kitchen counter.  Love the cows and the old farmer.  Just fits my style.



This is my very first cloche, a present from my son, so it is so precious and special to me.  I always have it on the counter filled with something.  Love, love, love it.  No big deal, just a silver sugar bowl with a faux plant, but everything looks special under a cloche.



I just showed you my cake dome that I have on the table.  So fun filled with fruit and cheese.



Now I know you guys will delight us all with your fabulous ingenuity and creativity, so plan on joining the party and get those cloches all fluffed and let's party.  Remember - -

                                                 SUMMER CLOCHE PARTY 7/24

Grab my button and spread the word.  Can't wait to see you all at the party.





Ok, let's see what you guys have for this week.  Remember to link back to this post and I would love it if you would follow me, just let me know and I will follow you back.

  1. Sounds like fun Marty. We are in the midst of putting things away and giving things away etc. to ready our home for market. I have a few cloches left unpacked and will see what I can come up with.

  2. Hi Marty,
    Nobody does cloches better than you! I think I need to buy a new one for this, just saying.
    Thanks for hostessing of course and stay cool out there, heard it was heating up again.
    We're finally back to normal, about mid-eighties.
    Hugs,
    Cindy

  8. Hi Marty, I do not have a cloche. I think they are so pretty, but never have run across any in my treasure hunts. I love, love, love the one on your kitchen counter with the farmer. I live in wheat country, so the bouquet of wheat is a favorite. Thanks for popping in and leaving your sweet comment. It was fun taking my little stroll past all the cute little trailers, from the Sister's on the Fly. They had them all decked out, very nostalgic of the 50's. Connie :)

  35. Thanks so much for hosting your party, Marty! I'm glad that you gave us advance warning for the cloche party on the 24th. I bought my first cloche last summer so I could come to the party and I made a coral arrangement to put under it. I think I am going to have to kick the terrarium out of the cloche to have something new to "wear" to your summer cloche party.

  46. Oooo - I have to get up to our lake house before the 24th to take pictures! I can't decide yet between the clear lamp that's filled with rocks from the Sierras or the hurricane lamp also with rocks - sounds weird but my husband loves rocks and they are actually a great design element.

  50. First of all, I LOVE that cake dome. I'd have never thought to use a cake cover with cheese, but it looks great. Secondly, you have encouraged me to get a cloche. I love them, just never had one, so I'm heading out to Home Goods!
