glass cloches & dried flowers

Just playing with some decor around here as I shift things from summer to pre-fall.

Cloches & dried flowers1

Without meaning to I found myself with a bunch of dried blooms.

I shared with you not to long ago this post where I found myself with some dried roses that were reminiscent of my wedding.

And I always have dried hydrangeas from the garden towards the end of the summer, which I use throughout the house all year round.

And I decided to dry some sunflowers for fall decorating since I thought it would be an interesting twist to the fresh sunflowers I use in the fall.

And these white blooms inadvertently dried in the guest room when the vase dried up.

And dried lavender is always somewhere around here.

I put them all under glass since this would bring them all together and make them a cohesive grouping | vignette although they are all so varied.

You can always use this trick by either using like items which unites them in a vignette OR use similar vessels to display items that don’t necessarily match.

I chose cloches for this instance but you could for example use silver platters, bowls & pitchers or ironstone or whatever you collect or strikes your fancy.

Don’t over think it just always have one detail that ties items together to have them all get along if you will.

I love using cloches because it makes whatever you put inside | under them immediately a gazillion times more interesting.

I had my sea shells and coral under most of my cloches over the summer, which I shared here.

But I have slowly started to put away my summer decor transitioning into pre-fall mode, which brought me to this.

I love decorating sometimes when you don’t have an exact plan but you just play and sometimes you end up with fun & novel ideas.

Have you started transitioning away from summer and towards fall?

I know it seems early, BUT my kiddos start school on Monday and back to school always symbolizes fall to me.

You can see other glass cloches vignettes I created: late summer 2015 & fall 2015.
Happy pre-fall decorating!

  1. thanks sarah. i usually don’t have them all displayed together but rather spread out throughout the house, but sometimes it’s fun to bring together like items. things in mass always have such a great impact. thnx for stopping by. xo- mj

  2. Hi Mary JO,
    You have so many lovely cloches, and they look so nice with the dried flowers and frogs, very vintage and Fall looking……….Pretty~
    Blessings, Nellie

  3. Beautiful display Mary Jo! A couple of years ago I fell in love with cloches and bought a couple then decided I didn’t have room for more. For me it always comes down to storage room. Thank you for sharing your links with us at Celebrate Your Story and have a great week!

  4. thanks sandra. i know! storage is always a big issue with everything. i keep my cloches out year round with something or other. they are usually spread throughout the house though not all together like this although i do love the impact it makes. xo- mj

I love hearing from you!
