Show and Tell - Valentine Decor

Time for Kelli's Show and Tell. Go here for lots more fun!

Today I'm sharing more of my Valentine's Day decor. Above is the dining room table centerpiece. I made it with three "bell jars." I've heard these glass covers called cloches, but now I like the name bell jars!

I have been wanting a "cloche" for a long time, but couldn't find one at a reasonable price. I put one on my Christmas list, and my daughter found the big one (above) at Pier 1! They didn't know what a "cloche" was, because they call them "bell jars!" I already had the glass cake plate that has the crystals around it.

For Valentine's Day I'm displaying silk roses in them!

After Christmas I found this medium sized bell jar, (above) for only $11. The same day I went to Marshall's and found the little crystal cake plate for $8, it was perfect to set this bell jar on!

I was at Ross one day and found this small bell jar, that has it's own stand, these were only $6 for both pieces! I believe these are called domed pastry plates. They are so cute!

I put this little ring keeper angel inside and placed a tiny foil heart on her hand,

She looks like she is blowing a kiss to the heart!

I think the three sizes together look great!

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?

What a pretty way to decorate for Valentine's.
My little 5 year old said that the one with the roses reminds him of the rose in Beauty & the Beast. (thats a good thing to a five yr. old) lol.

Oh, very pretty! They look pretty both standing alone and grouped together :0)
I love these cloches/bell jars for the simple fact that we're able to decorate them as the seasons change.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

Dianne said...

Very pretty-I have some too. I like what you are displaying inside them. I do decorate a bit for Valentine's Day, but not quite ready to show my things as I need to find another box of tchotchkes!

Oh what a great price you paid for these Bell domed cloches. I've been looking at them here and there and have never seen them for this little moola! Well done!

I just bought a new cloche at Ross today myself. It has a tall black metal stand. I don't know what to put in it...But it is way cute!

Adrienne said...

More great decorations! I love what you did with your bell jars. I don't have any but need to find some. I could do all kinds of things with them. Thanks for sharing your decorations with us today. ~Adrienne~

Constance said...

Great taste you have there! Don't you just love ROSS? I have gotten some great things there not to mention that I buy my teenage sons shoes (VANS & AIRWALKS) from them at ridiculously lower prices!!

I don't decorate for V-Day. I think it's because I do SO much at Christmas that the thought of putting out stuff just isn't appealing to me!

Yes....I think I like the term 'bell jar' best too. And so lovely. Now do tell...where do we find these lovely jars? I would like to have one myself....

And to answer your question, I do a centerpiece for the dining room table for Valentine's Day. IN fact I posted about it this week...on Monday. With photos.


My Show n Tell is posted now, hope you can drop by. It's going to be a 3-parter so it won't take so long for loading.

Very pretty Katherine! I love how you've arranged the jars and what you have displayed in them.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I just got one and will post on it tomorrow! I think that three together really make a nice display. Thanks for sharing. Happy Show and Tell Friday!

Love all your decorations, KK. I don't do the Valentine decor. My snowmen are out till the end of the month and I will change to bunnies.
Your bell jars are lovely on the table. So elegant!

Alice said...

They do all look great together. Very pretty. I like the base with the crystals hanging down - very beautiful. So pretty. Thanks for sharing.

You are always welcome in The Shadow of the Cross. Feel free to visit anytime.

PEA said...

How very beautiful your bell jars are, I just love them! That glass cake platter with the crystals hanging from it is just gorgeous, I've never seen anything like it. xoxo

Carrie said...

Your vignettes are delightful...such creative arrangements of various objects. The cloches really set them off.

I haven't been posting as much as I would like since my mother has been ailing and it takes a lot more time to attend to her (and to the visiting nurse, physical therapist, and home health aide.)

But whenever I can, i visit other blogs even if I can't take the time to comment.
Have agreat week!
Carrie
