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. For inspiration, let's take a look at some of the Christmas magic captured in cloches.
Santas ready to bring Christmas cheer.
Remember Santa mugs? They're special when displayed under glass.
Battery operated lights make a paper village magical.
A bit of nature - the iron dish adds rustic appeal.
Any little collection looks like Christmas with bottle brush trees.
A wood slab and "snowflakes" on the glass dome make for a winter wonderland.
Silver ornaments provide the "bling."
A few years ago, RH featured these glorious domes filled with tiny battery-operated lights.
One perfect way to show off fragile, vintage Christmas ornaments.
Majestic glass tree toppers corralled under glass.
IKEA sells a 7" high glass cloche (sky 703.439.38) for $7.99, perfect for a tiny tree.
Almost any "dome" will work - just turn over a glass salad or punch bowl. An old Mason jar provides a bit of nostalgia.
A simple display covered with a cake dome.
A one-gallon Anchor Hocking glass canister ($12.95 everywhere). Love on a book of poems by Robert Frost.

P.S. HGTV's "White House Christmas 2017" special airs tonight, December 10, at 6 p.m. Aired for the past 15 years, it provides a tour of the White House public rooms decorated by volunteers from across America. My favorite part is always about the executive pastry chef's gingerbread White House and the logistics of moving it into the State Dining Room. While Presidents come and go, it's our house and fun to see it all decorated for the holidays.
