It's a Cloche Party...or...Staff Favorites Under Glass

LargeLogo[1] It’s time for the Marty’s Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life and I am still suffering from cloche block! So the management here at Plate Addict suggested that my staff and I each decorate a cloche using our favorite thing! Sounds like a great idea since…


IMG_7893…I have been sitting on ready, having added my little handmade vintage tag (instructions here), waiting for the cloche muse to inspire me with ideas for how to fill it! Let’s see what kinds of ideas the staff might have!


IMG_7942 Here is our PR gal Isabella’s entry for the cloche party! She has chosen her beloved faux leopard catnip mouse! She is our little supermodel and loves those little fashionable touches! However, she has informed me that if management would allow her to go outside, she would fill it with her real favorite…lizard skin…and NOT faux!! lol


IMG_7944 This cloche was decorated by our own webmaster Kitty who, as her name suggests, is a no frills kind of gal. She has chosen her favorite kibble. No snooty gourmet food for this little lady! She's a sweetie! Don’t sit still very long or she will be in your lap!


page Here’s a sneak peek at our CEO Ozzie’s playful side. She has filled her cloche with her favorite…the ring from a milk/juice jug! However, do not believe that she let down her guard for long! Two staff members were disciplined by her for trying to interfere during her photo session!


IMG_7975 Not to be outdone, our co-host Baby Kitty has chosen his favorite…a ripe, juicy Georgia peach! As you can see, this is his favorite summer treat! (Yes, he really does eat peaches!) He denies it, but I strongly suspect that it is because the color of the peach compliments his fur! As with all celebrities, he is never one to miss a photo-op!


IMG_7981And here is my favorite under glass for the cloche party. Hmmmm…..somehow I don’t think it’s working!

Maybe you had better head on over to Marty’s to see what everyone else is doing!! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll see you next time! A la prochaine!

Management wishes to thank Sax at Emptynester for suggestions for this post!

  1. Too clever! I was having cloche block, also; but alas, no staff to help. I finally came up with something. Take care, Sally

  3. LOL! I enjoyed this post soooo much! THAT would be my favorite thing under a cloche too if I could find one big enough! I never know what to put under those things that haven't been done a million times so I'll just be peeking at everyone else's creations!

  4. Debbie, Sax says thanks for her 15 minutes of fame! I can't believe how creative your staff is, especially the peach. I personally prefer your choice lol. Thanks for the big belly laugh, I've been fending off e-mails from bozos all day. Man, write one letter to the editor and they come out of the woodwork! Have a great evening, and give all the kitties a big Hollywood smooch from Sax! Hugs, Kat

  5. Debbie you are just too much. I am laughing hysterically. This is just too cute. Kent wants to know what the kitty thinks about her food being in the cloche. lol I love your sense of humor and this is just fabulous. Mr. Linky is being a stinker. I am working on it, so please check back. Sorry. Thanks for being such a friend and participating. Hugs, Marty

  13. OH DEBBIE!!! I was laughing so hard I nearly spit out MY coffee, (which I think I am going to need for this party!). My word, your staff is the greatest...

    You are truly humble to admit you were a bit lost on the cloche thing. Same here. I so enjoyed this. Oh, and if you get a chance before I post my Cloche Party post, my current post made mention of your staff when my little Layla decided my camera fascinated her more than my laptop. Have a look if you have time!

    GREAT POST!! Love to the kitties!

  23. Debbie, your post is extremely clever as usual. I always smile and giggle when I read through you posts involving the staff. I don't really have any cloches, just a little cupcake stand and cover. I may post just a small little bit to join in the fun. Hope you are having a great week. ~ Sarah

  57. Too funny! Love the kitties.

    How funny that he eats peaches! I had one that would eat cooked bell peppers. One of mine now will not eat meat! Cats definitely have personality.

    Thanks for stopping by & helping with my dilemma!
