Copper is the Look for Fall

Copper has an ageless appeal that has transcended centuries. And as the saying goes “everything old is new again!” Copper seemed to start popping up everywhere this spring, and now it truly is “the” metal for Fall!

You can find old pieces such as the Old Dutch teapot or the hammered water pitcher in antique stores and flea markets. Due to the renewed popularity there are many new items that you can pick up to add warmth and an elegant glow to your home this holiday season.

Of course as I always say, if it can hold water it can hold flowers so here’s a little inspiration for making your copper accessory uniquely yours.

I love the combination of these beautiful roses in shades of lavender in a hammered copper water pitcher.  The rose varieties that I used here are Cool Water roses and Moody Blues roses with sprigs of wax flowers and seeded eucalyptus completing the bouquet.

I love the warm rosy glow of the copper perfectly complemented by the mango calla lilies and Free Spirit bi-color roses. Hypericum and tinted solidago add the finishing touch.

These “Shocking” lilies are like fireworks in the fall. They are part of the Sonata variety of lilies and are grown in California by Sun Valley Farms. They are very seasonal and available for just a few weeks each year. You can get yours now while they last at!

The chrysanthemum is a flower that falls within the “everything old is new again” group, just like copper. For whatever reason, the mum fell from grace in the mind of the consumer. I am here to champion the simple beauty and longevity of the chrysanthemum. They are available year round in many different shapes, sizes, and colors but I think that Fall is their season to shine. Drop a few stems like I’ve done here in a container that you wouldn’t normally think of using as a vase and you will be able to enjoy their beauty in your home for 3-4 weeks. has a nice bouquet of mixed mums available called the “Fall Mum Medley.” It’s robust enough to be able to make a bouquet for yourself and one to share with a friend – just because!
