Cloche Party Reminder Nov. 1st. - Advertising

   I want to remind you that next week we will have our Fall Cloche Party instead of Table Top Tuesday.  You are still welcome to show us any kind of table top for the party, however I hope you will showcase all of your cloches, hurricanes, apothecary jars and any other kind of container that you decorate in or under.

Here are a couple of displays that I've done in the past, just to give you a couple of ideas.

Some of you are not into the oranges and reds for the fall season, so here's an idea for fall that is a little more subtle and subdued, but still speaks of fall.

There are a few of you that keep telling me you are "Cloche Impaired" and can't figure out how to use one.  Well, just put one simple little item under your cloche and make it part of your vignette and you are done.

This is the dining table vignette I showed you last week.  Now I want to add a cloche to it.

I have a wonderful bird topped one that will be perfect.

See, all I did was remove the silver bowl and pumpkin and add the cloche with 2 sunflowers inside.

Super simple.  You don't have to do anything really elaborate, just a couple of flowers looks great.

So come on, put something under a cloche and join the party.  It really is tons of fun.  Remember it can be a cloche, apothecary jar, hurricane, cheese dome, cake dome, wire cloche or anything you can dream up to decorate in or under.

Also, with the Holidays here, now is the time to ADVERTISE your Etsy or Small Business.  I am offering 2 months for $20.  Contact me @  I will feature your business in a post and if you have a giveaway, I will advertise it for you.

  4. Your dining room table looks gorgeous, I'm planning on being there! xo

  5. Oh Marty -- I am cloche impaired because I have NO CLOCHE. Still. the closest thing I have is an empty Hellman's Mayonnaise jar.

    Now you've challenged me.
    Happy Halloween!
    We have about 6 inches of snow today and its still falling crazy is that?

  6. Hi Marty, I have been away from blog land so I am thankful for this reminder but I have nothing ready. My cloches are just the same as ever. I will think, think, think, just like Winnie the Pooh. hugs♥Olive

  7. Marty,

    Your cloche examples are so pretty. I love the 2nd picture you showed.

    Thanks for stopping by Shadymont and leaving your sweet comments. I'll be linking up to the cloche party on Tuesday.

    Hope your weekend is a good one!


  8. I'm going cloche hunting around my cupboards to see what I have. Thank you for the ideas, you just ooze creativity. I'm so jealous.

  9. Hmmm, I'll have to look around. I know I don't have a cloche, and I don't think I have anything else I can use. Maybe I'll just come look at everybody else's.

  10. OK, I am putting my thinking cap on so I can JOIN IN!!!! Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!! XO, Pinky

  11. I always look forward to your cloche parties, Marty! I love to share what I've done but I really like to see what others have come up with for ideas.

  12. What great ideas Marty, I am always so impressed by your creativity!
    I am going to try to join up, just need to find sometime!
    Hugs friend,

  13. I am currently on a Nov. 1st deadline that I am sweating through on my sewing machine. But I might be able to come up with something cute.

    I love all of your inspirational ideas.

  14. Marty,
    Oh my dear, your creamy ivory vignette with the finials under the cloches nearly took my breath away! Exquisite!!! I adore your new header, also!
