Combine a wood pedestal with a glass cloche for unlimited decorating
options! Be inspired with these 6 unique and creative styling ideas.


You might already own a wood pedestal and glass cloche but haven’t thought to
combine them together! Or maybe you have no idea how to style them. Let’s look
at a few options.

How to style a wood pedestal and glass cloche


Even if you’re not someone who enjoys moving home decor around for the
seasons, I think you’ll find a styling idea below that you will be excited to

Idea #1: Vintage flower frogs

I love to collect old metal flower frogs and use them as decor. I can’t tell
you how many times a (usually male) guest in our home has commented on
them…what is this? what do you do with it? is it some kind of medieval
torture device? LOL!

Nope. A flower frog is simply to hold flowers in place. Used in a vase, it is
a hardworking tool that doesn’t even get noticed! Let’s change that and
display a collection under a glass cloche! Do you think they look charming
this way? Or is it a strange thing to display?

Idea #2: Seasonal items

I love decorating for all the seasons! It feels like Christmas morning when I
unpack a box of seasonal decor that has been sitting in the attic for nearly a
year! Are you the same?

We just celebrated Easter, and I couldn’t help myself from styling a few of my
pink speckled painted eggs. The soft pink is a beautiful match with the natural wood tones of the
pedestal. An ironstone creamer and a little bit of
natural excelsior ground the display.

I topped the nest with a little green moss and some small speckled robin’s
eggs (painted using the same tutorial I shared above). Something this cute
isn’t even necessarily seasonal, and could stay on display for months.

Displaying an item under glass makes it feel a little magical, like a curated
piece of art!

Idea #3: Spring painted flowerpots

My little collection of
white painted terracotta pots
is a favorite. If you’ve been around here for awhile you’ve seen them popping
up all the time! Remember when I textured and aged them and made a beautiful
Spring flower pot wreath? I recently added a handmade scalloped edge to a few, and, for those who
have asked, I promise that tutorial will be coming soon!

Why not elevate a few favorite flower pots as decor? Fill with flowers or
leave empty, they are beautiful both ways.

Idea #4: Favorite collectible teacup

I love to collect blue and white transferware, especially English made, and
show it off in a multitude of ways. The blue and white teacups add such a
pretty pop of color and make a delightful display on the wood riser.

Idea #5: Faux flowers

I love peonies! We used to have a peony bush in our garden when we lived in
Oregon, and I always eagerly watched it bloomed each spring. I found some
faux peonies
that give almost the same vibes as the real ones. These pretty
blush flowers
are Spring perfection when displayed on a wood pedestal.

The peonies I have are from Michaels a couple years ago, and I can’t find
the exact ones. The linked peonies above are a close match.

Idea #6: Knit dishcloth and scrub brush

Here’s a practical idea for all you who need something functional 😉😍 A few
dishcloths or
chunky cotton DIY knit scrubbies
and a
natural scrub brush
next to the kitchen sink, is a fun way to add something decorative in the

Here is another glass cloche I thrifted and paired with an ironstone plate as the base. A taller cloche allows for more decorating possibilities!

It’s a favorite way to show off some of my vintage dishes. These blue and white Currier and Ives bowls were passed down from my mother-in-law and I love them! The teacups were thrifted.
