Fall Cloche Party

This is my very first blog party and I'm so excited!
Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is hosting It's A Cloche Party.
Please visit her blog for all of the fun and exciting Fall decorating cloche ideas, and for a complete list of all the blog participants.
I don't own any real cloches, but I improvised. I used my Princess House cakeplate as a cloche and placed my Charming Tails Autumn figurine. DH helped me arranged the fruit vignette.
Again I used my imagination and converted a cheese dome into a cloche to hold a pumpkin from Dollar Tree. The leaf tealight was a gift from my sister-in-law Carla. It's 1 of a set of 3


  1. Oh welcome, I am so glad you joined the party. I love your cake cloche and your figurine and pumpkins are just gorgeous. Your cheese dome is also so cute with the little Dollar Tree pumpkin in it. I love them both. Thank you so much for showing us your creations and joining the party. It is such fun to see all of the wonderful vignettes and what super creativity everyone has. Hugs, Marty

  2. Beautiful cake plate and how clever of you to use them as a cloche display....Christine

    PS I found my other pics and they are up now. =0))

  8. Welcome to your first cloche party, Oliva! You did a nice job of improvising- we can create a cloche out of most anything now... I used a cheese dome for one of mine, too. Your little mice figurine is sweet and precious.

    I need to visit this Dollar Tree I keep hearing about! I can always use more pumpkins and other decor, so if prices are as reasonable as everyone says they are, I think I might be missing the boat.

    Thanks for coming by for a visit. Hope you'll continue to come by whenever you can.

  9. Wonderful job, the little mice were so cute. You really looked like you are getting ready for fall, and its very pretty.

  10. Both of these are so cute -- Nice job -- also I looked back ans saw all those wonderful cards you make -- I love card making and will enjoy looking at your beautiful inspiration!

  11. Oliva, I love that little figurine. I confess-- I did not own a cloche until mine jumped out at me on sale at Tuesday Morning recently :) I have been perusing your cards--Oh My Goodness! They are just works of art! I am glad you stopped by-come again! :)

  12. I am so glad that you visited.
    I love your blog. All those cards are just yummy!!!
    I can't wait to read more.

    Oh yeah, I like your cloches! Love the little mice - they reming me of Cinderalla's little guys.

  14. Hi Olivia,

    Thanks for stopping by for the Cloche party! I am 2/3 of the way done with the list!!

    I like how you came up with your own cloches and I think that is what it is all about. I was in such a quandry over what to do with mine and now I am happy to see everyone using seasonal things. That will be fun!

    I saw your last post and I love the card (?) you made. I became interested in making cards with my sisters after we were at a Stampin' Up party. We all collected tons of materials and gadgets... I wasn't that good and I sort of fell of it. I still have everything & I am trying to get the motivation to start again. Your card incorporates a lot of great ideas without being too overloaded. Good for you. It is pretty.

    Have a super weekend, Olivia! :-)


  15. Great job using the cake dome. BTW, I LOVE your lamps on the buffet!!
