Happy Hour : Fall Cloches

This Happy Hour uses a glass cloche - perfect for small autumn vignette. Little collectables fit under a glass dome and natural objects look even more special. You might have a glass dome in your pantry - a cheese dome, a cake stand cover, a Mason jar, a glass canister turned upside down. If you don't have a base, you can use a book, a plate, a piece of wood or just sit it on a surface. Cloches / bell jars / glass domes are available almost everywhere as you'll see below. And, of course, the sky is the limit for what can go underneath. Let's take a look at some inspiration for this quick Happy Hour.


A giant spider adds a Halloween twist under this cloche.


Fragile items are perfectly protected in a cloche.


An architectural fragment and a fresh fall pear create a still-life.


A pumpkin and some fall branches create the mood.


This cloche, including wood base, is available online at Home Depot ($18).


Don't you love this little squirrel nutcracker?

Mom's small Japanese vase is covered with this 7" handblown cloche from IKEA ( $4.99). IKEA sells this cloche in two sizes and other styles with bases - all under $15.

Whatever you choose for your autumn cloche, it's guaranteed to bring the season inside. Around here, fall is in the air and our rooms have accents of fall colors. Yesterday, I asked P what he'd like for lunch. He looked around the room and said, "Something orange." Very funny. I made this Thai curry soup with coconut milk - orange - and comforting on an overcast day. Whatever the weather, have fun with your Happy Hour cloche!
