Cloche Party

It is time for "The Cloche Party" hosted by Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/ . Thank you Marty for hosting this fun event.
I don't have a whole lot to contribute to the party, since I don't decorate a lot for Fall. I did change out one of my cloches for a Fall look Used the moss that was already in there, added one of a pair of birds , 2 faux pumpkins and a faux gourd.
Photobucket
A simple centerpiece. I put faux gourds (think there is a small pumpkin or two in there), a few cinnamon sticks and small pinecones in the hurricane candle holder/vase. Then added the birds, as I thought the colors went well with it all, and changed out the candles.
Photobucket
I already had all of the supplies needed for both projects. The only new purchase was the small pot of mums added to the centerpiece (see header).
I am really looking forward to seeing what Marty, and all the other participants have to share for the party. If you have not already, you can check out the party at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/.

Have a great weekend.

Both of them are so lovely. I love your cloche and the jar is just wonderful. I especially love the little bird and how frustrated he is. This is just too cute. Thank you so much for joining the party. I love it all. Hugs, Marty

Hi Glenda, I think you did a lovely job using the dried gourds, cinnamon sticks, and pinecones in the tablescape and header photo. I like that you placed the jar on the mirror for reflection.
Poor little birdie looking for his friend... At least it isn't "pheasant" under glass! tee hee

Glenda - You did a great job with your fall things! I love the birds. I just purchased three just like them at our local resale shop for $3.00. I love them and think they will be great to use this fall. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Hi Glenda,
You are always so great about visiting, thank you!
I love your little birdies - they are adorable. I think the fall decor on you table looks great. There's plenty there to put you in the mood for the coming season - you don't need to do the whole house to get the point across!
Have a great week, hope you'll visit again soon.

LOve your birdies!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh, poor little bird!

Hahaha... very cute. I really like the hurricane glass with the gourds -- very nice. I am reluctantly bending to Fall decor; Howard brought home a big pumpkin yesterday and set it by the back door. Oh well. All good things must end I guess. .. goodbye summer!
