Fall Cloche

I have been visiting my daughter and she gave me the OK to get her dining room table ready for Fall. She works many hours a week so she is sweet enough to let me just "have at it." Since she has been using burlap on her table for a while I went with it and just added Fall elements. 

The idea came from a cloche arrangement I saw at Nell Hill's in Kansas City. We always love everything that Mary Carroll puts together. That made it real easy, just a shopping trip to Nell Hill's!

The bell jar is large about 15-18 inches tall and filled with pumpkins. I used a glass serving piece as a base. 

Then placed it on a pedestal sitting on top of a mirrored glass frame. I angled the camera a little so you can see the pedestal. A berry wreath was added around the bell jar.

Now for the rest of the table . . .

I arranged a mix of Fall leaves, pumpkins, gourds, and some gorgeous Mercury glass candlesticks, pumpkins and pheasants. The Mercury glass elements also came from Nell Hill's.

I think this table is going to carry her right into Thanksgiving. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
