If you are asking yourself what the heck s a cloche? I got you covered (no pun intended).

Think of a cloche as the petite cousin to the hurricane vase- flipped upside down.

Before blogs and Pinterest, I was not familiar with this decor staple, but a glass dome on a pedestal is an easy way to decorate a small space for the fall season.



I had so much fun creating a fall display using my petite glass domes for our fall living room. Cloches work well with small spaces like these ideas:

  • coffee tables
  • powder bath
  • in front of a window
  • kitchen corner
  • mantels

My only suggestion would be to keep glass a safe distance from big dogs (we have two Bernese Mountain dogs).

Ideas on what to add to a cloche

Cloches are simple. Just fill it and forget about it.

If you don’t have a glass dome you can use a glass hurricane, mason jar, or a vase that works just as well. I forgot I had one and It turns out I had two tucked away on my office windowsill.


This is the fun part! This is where you can shop your house for fall items or buy a bag of Brach’s, Autumn Mix.

Here are a few ideas to jump-start your glass jar.

Ideas on how to style a fall cloche

The cloche is a staple at this popular online site.

I decided my twin cloches would work on my glass coffee table in my living room.


Instead of a table runner for the coffee table (too long), I used this pillow cover.

It looks great in my navy and white living room.


Tip I used the broken strands of fall garland and berries. You know the bits and pieces that settle on the bottom of the storage bin.


I found these white pumpkins to fill the glass dome or jar.

I do the same thing with larger glass lanterns. The key is not to overthink fall decor.


  • rental units
  • condos
  • add a cloche to an office cubby


Years ago coffee beans were the decor staple. I never gave up on this easy filler idea and added a few of the beans to the glass jar. I like to tilt the glass dome just a smidge to get the coffee bean aroma.
