Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life proposed we all get together for a Cloche Party and today is THE day we’ve all gathered to show off our cloches and apothecary jars...and what we put in them.
Let me just say, I love cloches and apothecary jars…sort of. I love all the creative ideas other people have for filling these simple, but beautiful, glass covers and jars. But honestly, I can find very few things around my house to fit into mine. Everything is either too big or too small. Errrrrr!
So here’s what I have to show.
My family room has a garden vibe going on so I took some moss, a couple itty bitty clay pots, a few faux flowers, some ivy, a couple garden signs and a ceramic bird to fill this cloche.
Did anybody notice how HARD cloches are to photograph without tons of glare and reflection? It drives me almost as crazy as what to put in the darn things!
Here’s a close-up of Mr. Birdie’s other side…
Here’s one of those cheese plate domes covering three faux cupcakes. This sits on the little refurbished buffet table in my dining room.
Here I have one of my favorite teacups sitting on a pink cake pedestal and covered with a cheese dome.
In my living room, I have an apothecary jar filled with the obvious…candy.
Twizzlers red cherry licorice bites.
Now, if you will excuse me please…I need to go check out what everybody else is displaying in their cloches and apothecary jars so I can get some fresh, new ideas.
P.S. Thanks for hosting the party, Marty!
