It is all about entertaining over here this summer. And today is about using the beauty and charm of copper in entertaining.
Copper in Entertaining
You probably already know that I have an affinity for backyard gatherings. I love that you can work ahead on them over several weeks. Planning, tweaking and refining your ideas. And as you get closer- you can move and tinker with your settings. Another favorite thing? You can easily incorporate those indoor elements from your house- just bring them on outside. And you can use everyday items in a different way- like copper pots and pans on the table.
So for the month of August- I am going to share all kinds of ideas for inspired entertaining at home. Tips, tricks, wild hair ideas- you name it.
And today it is alllll about copper love.
Whether that is on the table, for cooking or for accents. Those rosy tones bring a whole new level of goodness. Here are 5 unique ways to bring a bit of that beauty to your next get together.
Did you even know that was a thing? I didn’t until I bumped into this set of delicious copper flatware. Just like gold flatware- copper adds that element of richness with a bit of pop.
Large Copper Pot for a big statement
I love big flower statements… whether that is a whole lot of flowers or an eye catching vessel- or both. One of my favorite vases are to use buckets and big containers like that for flowers- and this one is right on that same ideas-but with the added dazzle of copper.
This is a big soup pot filled with ranunculus and peonies- and it is pretty much perfection with the mingle of the the bold rich copper and soft blush and pink for me.
Another one of those ‘who knew’ finds- these martini glasses have the perfect amount of copper to add that elegant & unique touch to the table.
Mix with other copper elements like tumblers and stemless wine glasses for a beautiful touch.
Copper Moscow Mule glasses as vases
Copper pots used in centerpieces
This is such a simple way to bring those copper pots out of the kitchen- these pots are simply used as bases for the cloches- you can either set something right inside the pots and pans- or reverse them if you have flat handles and the pot will lay flat. Just position them so that the handles are tucked out of view with the flowers in the centerpiece.
Such a simple way to bring a touch of beauty to the table- grab those not in use copper Moscow mule mugs and fill them with flowers. Use several of them marching down the center of the table for a copper filled dainty centerpiece.
