Christmas Cloche

G'day and welcome sweet friends to Natasha in Oz. Thanks so much for stopping by today-it's great to see you! Today I am participating in my first Cloche party! During the Holidays Marty hosts a linky party where people can show how they have decorated their cloches, apothecary jars, cake stands and the like. Her displays are particularly amazing so my little first attempt is going to be quite simple compared to Marty's!

I don't have a cloche (they seem to be very hard to get here in Australia for some reason?) but I do have a glass dome and a couple of apothecary jars so I hope this is okay.

So here is my Christmas cloche display!

As you can see I have tried to make a manger-like display by surrounding the Christmas Cloche with straw. I have placed two little angels in there -they are waiting for the birth of a special baby.

 I will change this display on Christmas day by adding a baby Jesus.

 I have placed this Christmas Cloche on my sideboard along with my two apothecary jars that are filled with treats.

My kids (and husband) love these Cadbury Elves. They are filled with popping candy which explode in your mouth as you eat them!

My sister-in-law who lives in Paris sent these chocolates of iconic Parisian places....can you see my favourite place?

On the breakfast bar you will see my cake stand. I have filled it with our favourite fruit mince pies. We love fruit mince pies at Christmas time. I am going to try the Jamie Oliver mince pie recipe that I wrote about last time next week though, so I will let you know how I go.

Here is one last look at my Christmas Cloche. The photograph was taken at Tavern In the Green three years ago. The first picture was taken Thursday night and the second picture was taken Friday morning...I see that someone has been feasting on wafer cookies....hmmm.....

Thanks again Marty for inviting me to your Cloche Party. I can't wait to see how other people have decorated their cloches and their homes this Christmas so I am going over to Marty's place right now- See you there!

Best wishes always,
