Copper-The New Trend

Metallics have been popular in weddings for years- usually silver and most recently gold. Copper is now popping up this season and it is really REALLY fun.  I don't know whether to thank Moscow Mules that have recently made copper mugs popular again, or decorator...

$2 Prints.
