It’s Cloche to Valentines Day

I know, I know the title is awful. But somehow I couldn’t resist.

Marty at A Stoll Thru Life is hosting a Cloche Party and I decided to try my hand at using a cloche setting on my dining room buffet. I put out a romantic theme for Valentine’s Day.


I found these large Kisses at Target. Each one holds four wrapped Hershey Kisses inside.


What is your favorite flavor of Kisses?  Milk chocolate, dark, with almonds? My current favorite is the Hersey Hugs Raspberry flavored Kisses available for Valentine’s Day.

A selection of chocolate is truly necessary for the holiday – don’t you agree? The antique cut glass dish holds multiple types of M&M’s and some dark chocolate from Trader Joes’.


My bust of Beethoven I’ve had since high school rests atop a Parisian  styled decorative box. I used it Here for the Princess Party.


I find his music amazing, the fact that he continued to write after becoming deaf inspirational.


A little candle light


and some roses. 

Now all that’s left to do is set the table for tomorrow.
Happy Almost Valentine’s Day.


Stitch at you Soon,


Partying with:
Marty’s  @ A Stroll Thru Life -  It's a Cloche Party


  1. Thank you for visiting my blog in the UK. i love your cloche posts. You can my favourites meringues in one. I love the panel in the first photograph, Japanese style I think?

    Hope you are having a lovely Valentines day. At long last we have a sunny day here in the UK after all the cold and rain recently, hopefully Spring is on it's way.;-)) Jackie.

  2. Oh how pretty. I love your vignette and your cloches are fabulous. The huge "kisses", the candy and the sweet bust are so pretty under a cloche. Gorgeous. Thanks for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  3. I love both your Valentine table and your buffet! Lovely in every way. And your Longaberger Sweetheart baskets are the 'extra' touch!! Very creative!!!
