The apothecary-inspired style of this mercury-glass copper jug lends a vintage look that fits right into the holiday season. Add natural sprigs of pine and berries, and its simple pop of shine will make any small space feel more celebratory. Or, use it in a centerpiece—just pick 3 items in varying sizes, shapes and materials, like a mix of woods and metals. Bonus: the glass reflects the twinkling candles or lights, further adding to a party’s cozy ambiance.
For my Thanksgiving table I concentrated on the fall colors and décor. The pretty copper colored damask tablecloths I bought off season from Bed, Bath and Beyond for $4.99. The gold napkins were a Walmart clearance purchase, after the Christmas season. Buy, buy, buy off season! You can get great deals this way, I can’t stress this enough!
This simple, seasonal mule recipe is perfect for any fall weekend. Combine 1.5 oz Crown Royal Vanilla Flavored Whisky and .75 oz lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a copper mug over fresh ice. Top with 3 oz ginger beer and garnish with lime wheel. Add 2 dashes of aromatic bitters and enjoy this delicious cocktail!
