we’re loving cloche centerpieces!

I’ve been obsessed with vintage glass cloches lately. I bought several this summer from my favorite antique store in the Hamptons, called Nellie’s. I love them in a collection together on a table and I’ve been using them a lot for outdoor entertaining to cover cheeses and cakes. There seems to be a trend in weddings too with using cloches for centerpieces. Event and floral designer Matthew Robbins used similar glass terrariums and apothecary beakers in his beautiful wedding (see below) and many are following. If you can’t find vintage cloches, or you’d like to source them for your own wedding or party, try save-on-crafts.com¬†and worldmarket.com. -Lynn Butler Beling

Mini cloches are served at place settings for individual cheese courses.
