Summer Cloches





I love the look of cloches displayed all by themselves in groups. I've added a minimum of detail inside to keep the look simple and serene.



 

A grouping like this looks terrific on a sideboard, a sofa table, or as a centerpiece.




My dining room table always has something decorative on it between uses, and I love the way the shaped glass catches the light. The shells keep the display cool and bright.





































I'm enjoying some down time between summer guests. I hope you're loving the best time of the year too!
Ciao! for now!

Jacqueline

It DOES look nice as the cloches and dishes are beautiful on their own. I think the White on White looks so nice and restful. Have a great week.

These are beautiful! I like using this same idea.

I have a grouping of empty cloches on the cabinet in the hearth room. Simple, restful, uncluttered. Love it.
