You know what is delicious? A Moscow Mule!
I have been thoroughly enjoying this new trend. The drink itself – goes down so smooth, there is plenty of variation options out there so you never get tired of it, but you know what I love too? The mug! It’s got just enough shimmer to it, but could be held by men and women alike without fear of judgment. It’s easy to hold, and not a pain to walk around a busy room with. And bonus points: the copper mugs are not breakable.
My mind can’t help but wonder if the drink/mug combo became trendy because of its two winning elements, or if it caught on so well because the industrial themed slash steampunk inspired party and wedding is on the rise? Referencing industrial age design, event planners, decorators, and brides have been making their own twists on this theme for the last few years, with the concept gaining lots of momentum.
I have to suspect, that a huge part of the reason for this momentum gain is the sheer flexibility and scalability the steampunk and industrial theme allows for. It can be very vintage and grunge inspired, or it can be very modern and clean. It could be used for corporate decor, weddings, events for men or women, day or night, and really, any season. Check out some of the cool pins I’ve saved that are industrial themed or steampunk inspired.
For this week’s industrial glam party in copper and white idea board, I’ve chosen to go a more modern route, inspired by the Moscow Mule mug, with touches of nature brought in through small clusters of fresh foliage and greenery accents. In my head, this industrial glam themed event is for an evening corporate dinner, but I could just as easily see it transitioned over to a more social event, like a wedding reception.
The major elements to this party theme are:
- Copper mugs and accents
- Edison bulb lighting
- Small clusters of fresh green foliage
Here’s what I had in mind:
