Cloche Party...How Divine

I'm posting in my first ever online party, by joining the first Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life. Thanks to Marty for coming up with the idea and for being such a gracious hostess. Be sure to go over to her blog and check out the other posts of creative cloche chic.



Starting off with my first cloche, my Anniversary Clock that was one of my first purchases after Mike and I married. We bought this clock new, so it is now 34 years old and still keeps perfect time.




Cloche on my Charleston Cake Plate with a big pink flower to carry the theme of my girly girl plates and cranberry spritzer.



My Chefs in a jar....ready to get started on a great meal with artichoke and cheese....I'm sure they can improvise and come up with something. Mabye they can find a little spinach and come up with some Spinach artichoke dip, yummy.

My dining table has an assortment of vases, and apothecary jars....I found the small cloche and pedestal stand at Home Goods a couple months ago.



Some of my antique glass displayed under a cloche.

In my living room, a Hobby Lobby find....a cloche on a metal stand painted to look like an aged bronze.

A red, white and blue display.

My table at Christmas with Snowman family.

Hope you enjoyed your visit..come back soon.

All the Best,

Pin It!

These are wonderful. Your chef jar is my very favorite. It would go perfectly in my new kitchen re-do.

I think you had some nice cloches and jars to show us1 I love the chefs so much- here in the world did you find them? and I see the little snack box from Wally World in your red/white/blue display. How colorful and ready for the 4th of July! :-) Sue

Hi Anita...

Oooh...so, so many beautiful cloches and apothecary jars! I love them all, my friend! I especially liked the little chefs in the jar...so creative and just down right darling!!! Girl, you have quite the collection going there! They're so beautiful to decorate with aren't they!

I took a peek at your last post as well...I'd love to paint on a few jars, etc. Thanks for sharing that idea!

Warmest wishes,
