Still Thinking Cloches-Fall

I'm still shamelessly promoting the "Fall Cloche Party" on Sept. 17th.

Life has gotten in the way of my play time, so I borrowed one cloche from the kitchen counter and then created a small vignette on the dining table. Adding a second cloche is always fun.

Candles, leaves and Dollar Tree corn and pumpkins.

A small pumpkin under a cloche, and tied with twine works for me.

A few more leaves and gords sprinkled around finishes the vignette.

You saw this pumpkin a few days ago. Very simple.

Placed on a yellow check luncheon cloth it all looks really bright and cheery. Totally says fall to me.

Ok, for those of you that don't have a cloche. How about using a hurricane. Just fill it with something fall, a few leaves and berries just like you would a cloche and it is perfect.

The small cloche could be replaced with a floral arrangement, a basket of fruit or a grouping of gords, pumpkins and acorns.

Even a large bowl placed on a cakestand can become a great centerpiece when filled with fall goodness.

So, use your imagination and what you have and let's call it a cloche and have some fun. I can't wait to see how creative you all are.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits.


  1. I know what you mean about life getting in the way of play!:-)

    I'm trying to clean and organize for Fall over the weekend. I take a break now and then though.

    Your cloche displays are beautiful, as usual, Marty.

  2. I can't wait for the party! I am trying to come up with some cute goodies for my cloches! You always have such great inspiration for us all!

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  3. Can't wait for the party. I have been trying to think of something new and creative to the tried and true and I'll have some of that as well.

  4. You are giving me anxiety attacks, or should I say cloche trapbobia!
    I am thinking, and thinking! :)

  5. A lovely fall display, perfect for entering into a new season. My favorite season of all.

  6. BEE-YOO-TEE-FULL!! :) Indeed they are. Marty, you are amazing...wanna be you some day. Do you think it might be a little late to be trying be be like someone else? When I finish, mine look a bit like a Goodwill store! (Gee, I wonder why??)
    Hugs and love to you this beautiful Sunday afternoon!

  7. Oh I will be there! Mine are ready and I'm trying my best not to show them ahead of time! Fun,fun,fun! Hope you are going to have a Christmas cloche party too! I am so enjoying the cloche deal! LOL!

  8. Actually, funny you are promoting your party because I have been thinking about you and have photos of one cloche. You know I don't have "the touch" like you do but *sigh* I'm trying really hard. One more cloche to fill. Hmm....better go use my coupon at Michaels. Wish we had a Hobby Lobby here.

    Love all your cloche decor!

  9. My dad is coming this week...I'd better get some pictures taken soon!

  10. Marty, I have to confess that before I joined the blogging world I didn't even know the word Cloche! I knew that I liked those round glass "thingy's" with the globes but had no idea the technical term! Now I see them everywhere and I want all of the ones I see! Thanks for opening my eyes to this whole new Cloche World! :-)

  11. Always gorgeous cloches Marty!
    Lot's of great ideas, you are the CLOCHE QUEEN!

  12. Marty,
    Oh how thou dust tempt me! ! !
    Perhaps. . .we'll have to wait an see! In the mean while. . .keep tempting with your beautiful cloches!

  13. I am tempted! I am tempted! I just love the way you put things together, Marty! You are so creative. Who could resist following you?I am getting ready!...Christine

  14. This is terrible...but...I woke up this morning and was getting ready for church and while I was applying my makeup (with a paint roller~ hahaha) I thought to myself...I need to check her blog for the date of that party again! Seriously! I'm a gettin' ready for it...thinking ...pondering....planning!
    Have a blessed day my friend!

  15. Marty,
    Your so good to give us all of these great pointers. I really was stuck on this cloche party. I tried the hurricane upside down and I decided to use hurricane shades. I will be super excited to see all the creative ideas. Thanks for being generous about what it is considered a cloche.:)

  16. Oh Marty these are all so adorable...I really enjoy looking at all your decorating ideas.
    Warmest Hugs,
    Sandi @ Bearly Sane
