Burl Ives may have sung the praises of silver & gold in the classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer animation, but this month we’re taking a pass on the classic metallics. You may have guessed that December’s Color of the Month would be inspired by all the gorgeous decorations at our Home for the Holidays party. If so, you’re right!

Copper was the clear, unanimous winner for this holiday-heavy month! If you follow COTM closely, you’ll notice that this is the first time a color has made a repeat appearance in the ranks. We first fell in love with copper in March 2012.

Imagine any of these decorations adorning your windows, dining table, your tree or maybe hanging from your chandelier for a romantic dinner:

Is copper a color that you can see incorporating into your Christmas decor, a Kwanzaa feast or maybe even into New Year’s Eve? Do you get a sense of a fire crackling in all these yummy coppers, or is that just me? Let us know in the comments!
