A Fall Cloche Party.


Marty at A Stroll Thru Life  the Queen of Cloches is throwing A Fall Cloche Party for everyone to enjoy.
I'm also joining
 Claudia for Finding Beauty Friday,
I have to confess that I do not own a single cloche, which is ridiculous especially since cloche is a French word after all.
Still, Marty wants to include everyone, even if we're cloche challenged, and has some fabulous fall decorating ideas to inspire on her blog.

This comment had me considering my options:
Don't have a cloche, not to worry, just grab a hurricane or apothecary jar and fill it full of fall fun. They work perfectly too.
So, that's just what I did.
Gathered some bits and bobs together that I picked up last year at TJ Maxx, Michaels and other great stores in the Hilton Head SC. area, (click here to read about Halloween in HH) and a plain glass hurricane, then got busy.

I have to say I'm quite pleased with the results and ready to join in the fun at my very first Cloche Party.
A big thank you to Marty, Claudia and Laurie for being such gracious hosts and don't forget to click on the links above to see who else is partcipating this time.

  1. Well done in thinking outside the box. Fall colors are so amazing. I brought our Fall decorations out of the basement the other day and it just made me so happy. Hope your weekend is grand!

  3. It looks fabulous, I have hurricanes just like that, but never thought of filling with seasonal decor. Great idea. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Maggie your autumn vignettes look so natural. They look as if you walked into the woods and gathered armfuls of leaves and acorns and pumpkins and then arranged them so beautifully! I like the statue of the woman in the last photo very much.

  16. Close enough to a cloche!! I only have one and didn't do anything as spectacular as your hurricane glass looks for sure! I have one and now have some ideas on what to do with it!

  29. Maggie, your hurricane turned out beautifully! I really love that little Dutch-looking(?) figurine. She's beautiful. I'm so glad you linked to Favorite Things Sat. laurie

  30. Maggie, great idea! I don't own a cloche except for a very small cupcake cloche with pink polka dots and a small ornament. I've shared those for the previous parties, so I suppose I should have been a bit more creative. I do have a hurricane. This looks great!
    I'm ready to pull a few things out now that it's a bit cooler. Love your little French las standing there. ;-)
