Adding a Copper Glow This Christmas


Copper is a beautiful and versatile material that is often used during the holiday season. Not only does it reflect lights beautifully and is often used in decorating, but it is also a popular choice for drinking vessels like the beloved Moscow Mule, which is traditionally served in a copper mug. Copper is a great choice to add a touch of sophistication and sparkle to your holiday decor! Here are the top three ways we are suggesting incorporating copper into your holiday fun!

Christmas Decor:


Copper is the perfect material to use for making unique and eye-catching Christmas ornaments. Whether you use copper wire to create a festive tree or hang a shiny wreath on your door - it's sure to make your holiday season special. Copper also makes a great material for creating Christmas decor. String it along your mantel or window frames, or create unique centerpieces for your dinner table.

A copper color scheme can be a great way to add a touch of warmth and elegance to your holiday gift wrapping. Copper is a timeless classic that can be used in a variety of ways. It pairs nicely with other classic colors like gold, silver, and red and can also be used to add a bit of contrast to brighter colors like pink and green. Copper is also a great choice for a classic, rustic look. Plus, it's a great way to show off your holiday spirit without going over the top.


If you’re looking for some inspiration for copper holiday gift wrap, there are lots of great options out there! You could use copper ribbon or string to tie up the gift, or use copper washi tape to create a pattern on the outside of the package. You could also use copper foil to give the gift a beautiful, shimmery look. If you’re feeling creative, you could even make your own copper-covered gift box with copper spray paint or use copper paper to create a beautiful and unique wrapping paper. There are so many creative ways to make your holiday gifts stand out this season!

Holiday Cocktails

During the holiday season, many people enjoy traditional drinks served in copper vessels! Copper has been used to craft drinking vessels for many centuries, and it's still a popular choice today. Copper mugs, for example, are a popular choice for serving Moscow Mules, which is a classic cocktail. In addition, you can find copper teapots, pitchers, and other types of vessels that can add a unique touch to any holiday gathering. Copper is also known for its many health benefits, so it's a great choice for sipping your favorite holiday drinks.

Here are a few recipes that are sure to make your holiday party a hit.


Moscow Mule: Start with a classic and mix vodka, fresh lime juice, and ginger beer in a copper mug with plenty of ice.


Holiday Punch: Make a festive punch by combining cranberry juice, orange juice, pineapple juice and ginger ale in a copper mug with a few cinnamon sticks.


Eggnog Martini: Give a traditional holiday drink a twist by shaking together eggnog, brandy and a touch of cinnamon in a copper mug.
