I've started my holiday decorating this week. I know it might be a touch early, but Santa arrived in town today and if the big guy says it's time, then who am I to disagree. I don't have lots of spare time to agonize over details but that doesn't mean I settle for anything but picture perfect. I am a designer! I know I'm not alone in this me versus my schedule so I've set out to find the best holiday decorations that appease the style maven in me.
I've found a few really quick but uber enviable table top decor tricks. I'm all for solidarity in prettiness so here's my 5-Minute Holiday Cloche. Funny enough I didn't know what a cloche was until my assistant told me a few years ago, so if you're learning it here today, don't feel bad. It's a fancy decorator term for something with a protective cover.
I bought everything for this, including the sweet birdie topped cloche at Canadian Tire from their holiday CANVAS Collection. This will take you under 5 minutes to create, tops!
- Take the lid of your cloche and set it aside
- Prepare your holiday sprays of choice by creating a loop in the wire stem, and bending them at 90 degrees so they can sit upright
- Place the sprays on the base and cover the wire stems with pine cones to hide the loops
- Return cloche cover over your creation and voila!
I created this one to sit on my bar cart for the holidays. I think it's such a clean and pretty way to add holiday decor where my guests will see it. My guests are big fans of my bar cart ;)
