Happy Hour : Christmas Cloches
Don't you love the simplicity of this "snow" dusted cloche? Glass domes are a great way to display small treasures and can easily fit in any of your rooms. If you don't have a "real" cloche, I bet you already have something you can repurpose. Best yet, this is the perfect season to give one a try. It's a great holiday Happy Hour! For inspiration, let's take a look at some of the Christmas magic captured in cloches.
