How to Decorate with Glass Cloches

How to Decorate with Glass Cloches

I’m addicted to using Glass Cloche’s in my decor. The number one reason is because everything seems more important when it’s placed under glass. Am I right?

Wait until you see all the ways you can decorate with Glass Cloches around your home. In addition, I’m taking you on a tour of all the Cloches I have decorated for Fall, at The Ponds Farmhouse.

Also, I’m excited to be joining a group of fabulous blogger’s for The August Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy, Country Road 407. If you are coming over from Kristin at White Arrows Home, that’s great. When you finish here, hop on over to my friend, At First Day of Home and check out her Cloches. Below is our Pinterest inspiration photo. This photo was the inspiration for all the ideas I’ll be sharing with you as well as those linked at the end of my post. Let’s get started.

What is a Cloche?

You may be asking, what is a cloche? Some more familiar terms are Bell Jar or Dome. Cloche is the french word for Bell and the Cloches original purpose was to protect fragile items. Therefore, when you place an item under a Cloche, it elevates its importance. They come in all sizes and materials. In addition, they don’t have to be glass. Many rustic or garden style cloche’s are made of metals and contain no glass. The cage like covering helps to protect the plant or whatever may be under the dome. I love them all.

The First Inspiration Styling

We will start today’s tour in the Greenhouse. This cloche that is closest to the inspiration photo in the tour, therefore I decided to start here. Plus, I love styling anything in that space.

Here is the hanging tobacco basket, holding a wildflower arrangement, that I shared with you a few weeks ago. You can see the post here. I loved how the wildflowers dried so I just added some dried hydrangeas and the results are perfect. You’ll be amazed at how different it looks before.

Decorating with Glass Cloches in the Loft

Next I added a set of glass cloches to the loft coffee table. Here I opted for more traditional orange pumpkins to compliment the rustic industrial loft style.

Instead of just one pumpkin, I choose three varying sizes and added a cloche to highlight each one. In addition, vintage books and a pediment serve as bases for the cloches.

Next, we move to the living room and the coffee table Cloche Display. Here I decided to fill the vintage wine barrel with fun fall decor and showcase each special item under a glass Cloche.

First, I added some of my vintage amber bottle with the aged labels attached. You can see how to make the labels here. Also, I’ve had these fall birds for a few years but they look so impressive under the glass dome.

Any items looks more important when placed under a cloche.  See all the creative ways you can decorate for fall using cloches.  Farmhouse style decorating, rustic country style and elegant greenhouse style.

In addition, I continued to add and move items around. With the coffee table in the middle of the room, it’s important for it to look good for all directions. If you pay close attention, you’ll see slight differences in each photo. Decorating with Glass Cloches adds so much light to the items gathered inside the vintage barrel and makes them shine.

This photo was my favorite combination and I’ll leave it like a few days at least. LOL Which was your favorite?

Decorating with Cloches on the Porch

Last, is the screened porch which is another area I love to style. Adding a small cloche with faux acorns adds a little glamour to the ice cream bucket filled with fading black eyed susan’s.

Under the Garden Cloche

Even this garden cloches get a spot on the porch and is filled with a single pumpkin. In addition, I used a chippy stool as the base and added a ring of bittersweet around the pumpkin. A gathering of faux pumpkins adds the finishing touch.

Here’s another thing to love about using cloches, almost anything can serve as a base. This vignette would be perfect with a fresh mum under the cloche. Since fall is just around the corner, it will be fun to add some fresh flowers to mix soon.
