When I started blogging the end of August, I didn't know what a cloche was. Well, I thought it was a type of hat, and it is. It is also a wonderful decorating concept. I have seen such darling cloche arrangements in the past few months. I know that I will see many wonderful ideas during Marty's Cloche Party today. Please visit Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life where you will find the links to all the participants.
I didn't own a cloche so I went on a search over the past month. I thought I had found something that would work, it was a jar with a lid. Then I found a covered cake stand at a local thrift store and it just had to come home with me. I tried several things inside of it, but I wasn't happy with any of them. This is harder than it looks! So, I opted to get out my two small boxes of ornaments that had belonged to my grandmothers and make my cloche in their memory.
I decided to use some holiday fabric on the table because it really pulled out the colors in the old ornaments. The ice frosted wreath fit perfectly around the base of my cake stand.
