Cloche Crush

It all started with a single glance at Cire Trudon's exquisite retail candle display (below, top right).  Those shiny cloches with bourgeoning fragrances harbouring inside the glass.  And just like a decadent cake elegantly displayed in a domed stand, styling objects beneath a glass cloche creates the very same covet factor.  So naturally, I set out to find myself a couple cloches to enhance my greek bust and diptyque candle.  Lovely, right?  Things appear extra special under glass.

Pretty Pumpkin Roundup

Top L-R:  flowers | studded | metallic
Bottom L-R:  glitter | decoupage | carved | lace

Bloom it, stud it, shine it, glitter it, decoupage it, carve it, lace it - any way you like it!  So many inspiring pumpkin decorating DIYs to try.  Click here to see my pumpkin DIY last year;  this year's pumpkin project is TBD, but I'm especially loving the decoupage idea.  We all love a classic jack-o'-lantern, but sometimes a girl just wants to demonstrate her decorating prowess.  And pumpkins - they should be very afraid.

Hallows' Eve Tablescape

There may not be goblins and ghouls at the dinner table, but who invited them anyway.  Cire Trudon's Napoleon bust candle as part of the table's centrepiece has a ghostly vibe, while the Melody Rose gold-rimmed plate featuring an eerie image of a naked couple sets the right tone for a Halloween inspired tablescape.  Plus, the edgy Juliska urn and Kelly Wearstler vase adds a touch of gothic studded glamour.  Add a few small gilded pumpkins to the centrepiece to finish off the look, and you've got yourself a dark and fabulous Hallows' Eve tablescape!
