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.
HOW TO STYLE A FALL CLOCHE
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
My only suggestion would be to keep glass a safe distance from big dogs (we have two Bernese Mountain dogs).
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.
WHAT TO ADD TO A GLASS DOME OR JAR
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.
seasonal pumpkins, acorns & pinecones
fresh leaves or pinecones
Brach’s candy corn
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.
LEAVES IN A CLOCHE
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.
CLOCHES WORK WELL HERE:
- rental units
- 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.
Here are a few places to find cloches.
