Summer Cloches...

Either summer is flying by,
or I am just getting lazy :-)

It is time for another cloche party
and it snuck right up on me!

(click photos to enlarge)

Since I love teacup stacks...
I stacked my demitasse teacups
in my skinny cloche,
there was no room for saucers!


I tucked a little reindeer moss between each layer
and topped it with a little moss nest
and a clutch of eggs...


Then I made this butterfly bush...


I covered the branches of a silk tree in Paper Butterflies.

The too sweet butterflies came from
a digital graphics sheet I bought from
Beth at Tattered Chic.

A dash of glitter added the magic :-)


Isn't this mini watering can charming?


Even though this is a footed cake stand
I though I would sneak it into the party!

I made these faux treats in the spring...
they have been floating around the dining room since,
but I don't think I have shared them yet!


Little chocolate cakes
drizzled in white glaze
with sweet paper roses on top!

Yes... I almost made it through a post roseless!!

Today there are two fun parties to visit!


Marty at A Stroll Thru Life
is hosting a Cloche Party!


Cindy at My Romantic Home



Thanks for visiting me today!

Hi Bella
I remembered you stacked teacups in a cloche before and considered doing that too - good thing I didn't! :-) The big glass one in my post is the super deal I got for next to nothing.
The paper butterfly bush is so cute.

maría cecilia said...

very, very beautiful and charming cloche settings!!!

Nancy said...

Oh, what gorgeous cloche displays you've created. I love stacked teacups to and in fact put some in a cloche but your idea with the Spanish moss between the cups and the top one filled with eggs really brings it to life. So charming.
I love the next one down as well containing the arrangement and little paper cut outs. And the faux sweets you made are darling. I was ready to have a bite.

What a lovely post!
