My First Cloche Encounter

I was soooo excited when Marty at
announced her Summer Cloche Party!

I have been sitting on the
sidelines ogling at all of the
lovely cloche displays for several years now.
Before I even began blogging!

A while back, gosh maybe a year ago, I found the
perfect cloche at the thrift store!
 I paid a whopping $1.00 for it!

I then had to come up with
how I wanted to decorate it.
It sat just there taunting me
to come up with SOMETHING!

I went through most of my bins in
the basement and I think
I finally came up with a
cute and fun display to share.

I have it set on a thrifted silverplate tray
and added a wine glass from the Dollar Tree
and a glass grape cluster from Michael's
A chunk of faux cheese,
another cluster of grapes
and a small bottle of wine
sit inside the cloche.

I am loving the little display
under glass on my buffet!
It's like my own little
personal wine party!

Now head on over to Marty's 
on Tuesday July 24th
and check out all of the amazingly creative
cloche decor!

Click here to see where I may be partying this week.

And don't forget to come by on Tuesday's
for the link party.

  5. I can't believe you got that at such a steal, and I love the way you used it with the wine and cheese theme. I had forgotten that there was a cloche party.

  6. What a great little display! I love it :)

  7. Came over from Gunny Sack to see the cloche. love these things, but haven't made the plunge to buy one. Your vignette is very classy!

  8. I love your wine and cheese display under your cloche! I don't have a cloche, but my sister-in-law has one that I posted about. Now, if I could just find one at the price you did!

  9. Hi, I sure wish I had some bins in my basement! You are so lucky. Actually, I don't even have a basement :). Great job, great find...Connie

  10. What a steal! Everything looks so pretty.

  15. Oh I love, love, love it. I'll have a glass of wine, some cheese and grapes please. How fun. Such a great idea and so beautiful. Thanks tons for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  16. That is a party on a tray. I love it and by the way you are now doomed to buy cloches all the time. I have tons but paid nothing for them at thrift stores and such.

  17. You did a great job. That was a perfect idea.

  18. What a cute idea! :) I love the little single serving wine with cheese and fruit. Perfect! :)


  19. Cloches rule. Great post. I found you via the Tuesday Talent Show from Chef in Training
    I have linked a pizza I did with leftover roast chicken. Have a good week.

  20. Oh, it is so pretty. I need a cloche. Thank you for sharing this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see you again. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  21. Great cloche! You've done a fabulous wine party or just for one! Found you at Eye Heart Monday.

  22. Just lovely! Thanks for sharing at the All Star Block Party!


  23. Love it! I've been eyeing the cloches on Marty's website too and wishing I had one. Thanks for sharing it at the All Star Block Party.

  24. I am jealous. I need my own personal wine party! Looks great. I broke my only cloche so I couldn't attend the cloche party! Apparently the thrift store employees have been reading blogs because they are pricing them so high these days around here.lol

  25. You done good with your cloche! Very pretty! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  26. Yoohoo! What an inviting cloche! I love cloches with no handles and of course, I adore wine and cheese parties Kathe! Hugs,

  27. Hi Kathe!

  28. Hi Kathe, your first cloche encounter was a good one. I don't drink alcohol, but I sure would love having that handy for cooking. Love it on the silver tray. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  29. Cloches are addictive - you can't just have one! Yours looks terrific and finding it for just $1 was a real score.

  30. Very pretty arrangement, although I'd probably want to grab a grape every time I walk by!

  31. Wow! Only a dollar! Great find! Your display is soo pretty!

    Thanks for sharing at my Super Link Party! :-)

  32. That was a perfect find to use in the cloche party. Also I like your new header and design.

  33. Kathe.. you should be proud of this.. it looks GREAT!! You're right, it looks beautiful on your buffet!
