It is universally acknowledged that any object placed under a cloche becomes a work of art. From a simple fern to an intricate diorama – a glass cloche (or bell jar, they’re sometimes called) can add a special touch to any season’s decor – but I particularly love them in the spring time. Here are 3 ways to easily style a cloche.
The size and style of cloche (hear the correct pronunciation here!) will dictate what can be under it. This one perfectly fits on top of several of my favorite cake plates – making it versatile and easy to change up. For Easter, an oversized papier-mâché egg with a gold foil bunny atop a ‘nest’ of gold shred on a white cake plate.
Even flat on the table, a cloche makes a maiden hair fern a dramatic centerpiece. if you have pets (or kids) who can’t leave houseplants alone, this is a perfect solution.
The fern is sitting in a birch container from a local floral supply shop. After watering, leave the cloche off for about an hour to avoid condensation accumulation.
For another transitional spring look, pair a party bunny with some glittered eggs on moss in an aluminum cake plate.
The sheet moss works well when it is contained on a piece with a lip and since it can be layered, allows for height variation. And don’t constrain bunnies to Easter – they’re perfect all spring long!
I love styling cloches – the small stage makes me think creatively and makes for a big impact. It’s easy to change seasonally and isn’t as stressful as a whole mantle! Hopefully, you’re inspired to style something special under a cloche!
