Happy first Advent! The countdown to Christmas has officially begun. This year my Christmas colour palette is copper with rust brown and orangy hues. My DIY advent calendar is spruced up with copper, and so are the two table centerpieces I made with evergreen and flowers. To finish the look I used copper wire to create the numbers by spiraling them around my candles. I made one large opulent centerpiece for the dinner table, and a small simple one for the coffee table.
