Decorating with glass cloches is a classic way to decorate for any occasion — they are so versatile? Here is how I put together this DIY Christmas cloche centerpiece and table setting.
DIY Cloche Centerpiece
If you saw my Christmas Home Tour, you already saw this tablescape.
I wanted to show you how it all came together!

Here are the kind of glass cloches I already had. They can be very pricey, but I found affordable ones on Amazon. They are also called bell jars, and they come with or without a base.
I bought Christmas decor at Pier1 and Target to create this tablescape.
My goal was to use gold and silver accents, so I bought these gold-and-silver stars and gift tags at Pier 1.
I didn’t know how I would use them, but when I got home I decided that they’d be perfect for my cloche centerpiece I had in mind.
This box of fake berries from Target was $6 and they were the perfect filler for the cloches, after I first added the star ornament and also a few gold ball ornament.
In the end I didn’t use that little Pier 1 deer but another one I already had with a space for a tealight.
I had bought four of these Target placemats and four Pier 1 snowflake placemats to have options and ended up using the snowflakes under the plates.
Aren’t these simple white Pier 1 plates pretty? They were on clearance, as well as the four water glasses. They are so classic, they will come in handy for table settings for years to come.
These napkins with knots let you avoid napkin rings, so I added $1 bells as little favors.
What I paid for this cloche centerpiece and table setting:
- 4 large white plates for $20
- 4 small white plates for $15
- 4 water glasses for $13
- 2 star ornaments for $7
- 4 snowflake placemats $15
- 4 napkins for $15
- 4 silver bells $4
- placemats for $5
- box of fake berries for $6
- 4 red bows for $4
Considering that I can use most of these new items all year, I think I did pretty well!
