Cloche Party!

Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is having a Cloche Party!

Cloche is French for bell. Which makes a lot of sense as the dictionary defines it as:

1. a woman's close-fitting hat with a deep, bell-shaped crown and often a narrow, turned-down brim.
2. a bell-shaped glass cover placed over a plant to protect it from frost and to force its growth.
3. a bell-shaped metal or glass cover placed over a plate to keep food warm or fresh.

Now-a-days... you can put just about anything under a cloche... and make one cute decoration! I have seen lots of birds nests and birds... which is so, so adorable!

The only thing I have that even resembles a cloche is a glass cake stand... so I hope this qualifies for the party! :) When I don't have a fresh pie or baked goody in my cloche cake stand... I like to put some freshly baked (wink, wink) felt donuts inside. I'm quite a fan of crafty felt creations... and there is no mistaking my love affair with donuts. ;) So I figured, felt never spoils, always looks presentable and is a great substitute for a really baked goody!

My hand-made donuts... (you know you are a donut-holic when you make your own felt donuts. haha)

Don't forget to check out all of the other participants' cloches!! Happy Friday! :)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. YOur felt donuts are the cutest things I have ever seen. What a fun thing to have. They look fabulous under your cake dome and I would probably leave them there all the time and eat the real one. Great inspiration. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

How cute are those darned donuts! Never seen anything like that before. I only had one cloche, and haven't had that very long. So I know just what you mean. I'm really motivated by that cake stand with felt donuts. Hey, real inspiration here! Thanks!

I was drooling over the donuts, totally amazed that you made them and then you announce they're felt! FUN!!! I have a covered cake stand- forgot about it because this rental has ants that can make it into brand new bottles of Karo syrup!
