FABBY: Cloches and a Halloween Tablescape

Hello my sweet friends!

I can't wait til I go and party with you at Marty's Fall Cloche Party! I'm sure you all have such awesome things for me to enjoy and to inspire myself, as you guys are the best!!

I also did a Halloween tablescape, along with some cloches for decoration. Everything is around my breakfast table and the two buffets that surrounds it. Lets not talk to much and get to partying!


 I used for my Halloween tablescape a new cloche I bought for our Colonial Virgin Marry this trip, while visiting our girls. I love it when they're just like domes, or clock-domes.
 I think there's a black rat running around inside this centerpiece cloche..eek!!
The ugly creeters and mouse were lended to me by the girls..children seem to love them!..lol
 Each place setting also have a small cloche I was so lucky to win at Marty's Summer cloche party,  last year from lovely Chie, that has her fabulous blog, Chubby and Chieque. Be sure to go there!
You can see a couple of small cloches too with a little gourds inside them.

I did wanted to use silver, black and white for this table. The chargers are pewter.
 My vintage Belgium buffet is with some pumpkins in the silver cloche, as they call it like that too.  I have many more cloches, but I thought this would be enough for today.

 Another cloche with pedestal and an apothecary jar with red English transfer ware cups and teaset.. for some fall tea.
 Would you like an apple?
 Some cloches in my Mil's antique English buffet.
 I'm loving my new cloche, which also has a ceramic base with feet. Can't wait to put my 200 year old Virgin Marry inside it.
My lace tablecloth with some black spider webs.
 I always keep the Chinese figurines under glass, here.
 The flowers in the oil painting seem to be the same as the real ones in the vase.
 I love these two Chinese figurines of young ladies holding birds in their dainty little hands with bracelets in their wrists. I keep them in this beautiful antique Egyptian piece, filled with brass ornamentation, and it says written in the back, Egypt 1929, hubby detected a year ago, when we painted the dining room...we have it around eight years. 

Thank you sweet Marty for yet another terrific Fall Cloche Party 2012 at, A Stroll Thru Life.

Thank you so much wonderful ladies that host such terrific and fun parties each week, I appreciate you all for having me.

Lots of hugs, as I'm very grateful to my sweet and generous blog friends that always leave me such great comments, which always make my day!!

LOVE,
FABBY

What a "fabulous" contrast the orange and black of your arrangement creates! It is elegant but at the same time Halloween-y.

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Ma chère Fabby bonjour,
Tout de suite je tiens à te dire qu'avant je ne lise ta publication, j'avais noté la délicate note avec le bouquet de fleurs fraîches placé près de ta peinture et qui faisait un merveilleux duo... duo partagé avec l'atmosphère très particulière que celle de Halloween.

Les trésors alloués pour cette fête intensifient le côté mystérieux grâce à la présence de tes merveilleuses cloches...
Tu as beaucoup de talent pour assembler et mettre en valeur chaque pièce. Tout à son importance et cela se sent...
Je suis certaine que tu vas célébrer cet évènement admirablement et que tes convives en redemanderont encore...
Gros bisous et un grand merci pour tes gentils commentaires.

Johanna said...

Hi Fabby,
you made a wonderful scary Halloween table. For me the rat and spiders under glass are less scary than they were free. All your cloches are really adorable and the little Agyptian cabinet is a treasure. Thank you for sharing.
Best greetings, Johanna

Donna Heber said...

Beautiful tablescape for Halloween! Love your collection of cloches and that spider web lace tablecloth.

Love all the doo dads! Very festive decorations. Can't get enough of your style! Happy Rednesday!

Suzy said...

Such a creepy tablescape, Fabby. Love the spider webs that you added to the table. Isn't it funny how kids love to be scared? Love the black rats running around too.

bj said...

O, Fabby, you do have the most beautiful things...well, maybe the rat running around might not be considered BEAUTIFUL...but that table sure is. :))
xoox

LV said...

No doubt you know what you are doing to have such a lovely table setting.

✿Carol✿ said...

Everything looks cuter when it's in a cloche! LOVE your Halloween tablescape. It looks like it was alot of work, but the results were definitely worth it!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

Dear Fabby...I have been so busy with getting the house ready for an OPEN HOUSE last weekend, since we are selling it to downsize, that I have not gotten to visit my favorite blogs lately..but the now that that is over I can relax and get back to my "blogland"!!
And what a lovely tablescape you have right now! I loved everything about it...you have such beautiful
things and know how to show them off to their best advantage.
The cloches are wonderful and I love your newest one! It is tall and holds a lot, which makes it nice. However did that rat get inside it with your pumpkins!!?LOL The little cloches with other kinds of fruit or veggies look grand, too. I like those "spider webs" on your lovely lace tablecloth!! And your centerpiece does have the colors in the painting!! So fall looking!
I always like to look at your buffets...they are very elegnant and you always have them filled with lovely things. I am sure your whole apartment is just as lovely as the dining room we see often.
Thank you for sharing your table with us, as always, and I know you had a good time doing it~~
Have a fun week!!
Sending hugs and love...Francy

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

SueLovesCherries said...

Hi Fabby! I saw on LV's blog where you asked when Rednesday was. I try to have my post up on Tuesday nights and it's open for entering up until Thursday night.

Pretty table, and I love that Egyptian sideboard!

the poor sophisticate said...

Hey there! So glad to be your newest follower! I LOVE this! Looks like you have a weakness for cloches too... :) I hope you are having a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Thank you so much Francy, you got me worrying there, for a while!! How wonderful you're down sizing, it's the best, that's why we moved to the condo..it's not small, but not huge as our house was, with the pool and the huge frounds too. I love it, I don't even have to worry about a garden, there's one for all of us downstairs, but I don't worry about..even a pool! Thank as always for all your kind and generous comments. Hope you find a good buyer soon and please keep me up with the news. Big hugs,
FABBY

kitty said...

I love all your cloches, Fabby! What I especially love is all your beautiful red transferware (swoon). What a beautiful display you've done.

Penny Phillips said...

What can I say that hasn't already been said! Everything is just gorgeous! I think my favorite thing is the individual cloches at the place settings! Hugs, Penny

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Fabby, First of all, your transferware is gorgeous. Please show us more of it! I think the rat under glass is terrifying! Ooo--I don't think I would be able to open it for fear he would run out!! Enjoy your wonderful table. Linda

Infuse With Liz said...

Oh my Fabby! I don't know where to start but I will with the black spooky looking addition to the lace tablecloth! I looks like it's bleeding over the side! The table looks sophisitcated and spooky all together! I'm glad the rat is trapped under the cloche! hehe!! You have so many beautiful cloches and art pieces!

Brandi said...

Beautiful as always. You are so creative, Fabby. I love seeing what you come up with next.

Marlis said...

Fabby, your cloches are sooo pretty. I love the pumpkins (and the rat).. Your dishes and the pewter chargers are just fabulous.. Oh Fabby it's all soo pretty. xo marlis

Jewel Sauls said...

You have an amazing collection of cloches! Love your scary, yet striking table!

Entertaining Women said...

Fabby, can one have too much fun while designing a tablescape? If so, I think that you might that very one! Your mini cloches are wonderful...so many possibilities when using them. I can hardly wait to see your new red transferware when it arrives. It should look marvelous with the pieces that you've used here. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Alycia Nichols said...

Hey there, Fabby!!!! I hope you're having a good week! I love this table! It's so fun the way you added the black cobwebs over the lacy tablecloth! That's a really great Halloween look! Your place settings are beautiful! Oh, my goodness! The pewter chargers are just fabulous! I don't own any pewter, and I love to see what others have found. I have seen a few patterns I like, but they've all been too pricey. LOVE your miniature cloches on the place setting!!!!!!!! You really did a wonderful job on the table and around the room!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...
