My daughter and I are hosting a shower for the mother of a soon-to-be-born baby boy. This is the cloche that will greet guests in my foyer. This, of course, is a "test cloche". I think I will try to use yellow rose buds rather than fully open roses for the shower.
Yellow and blue invitations are in the mail! Since we have the luxury of knowing the baby is a boy, we have chosen a yellow and blue theme--one of my favorite color combinations. I used this wired ribbon here on the cloche and on a baby-themed door wreath I'll show you later.
I wanted the cloche to include timeless treasured baby objects...a silver porringer, a monogrammed teething ring.
A smaller silver baby cup holds baby's breath and a small silver spoon. Although the rest of these treasures belonged to my children, the baby spoon is a recent find. It was in the chest of seldom-used silver plate flatware that had belonged to my mother. It is an old and very popular pattern called "First Love"...how fitting. Maybe she once fed me with this spoon.
I like the way the Celtic cross shows through the cloche. This would be a great way to display a baby's keepsakes in the nursery....placed away from tiny probing hands :)
I am so happy that I got to come to the party. I can't wait to see what Marty and the rest of you have "under glass"! Hurry over to Marty's party.Your invitation is below!
