Copper Polish…The Moscow Mule Elevated

Moscow Mule Mugs and recipes

We like our summer to last through September…maybe into October. If you’re anything like us, we’re guessing you do too. Our suggestion for an extended summer…a signature cocktail for the last parties of the season or an impressive hostess gift to bring along. A Moscow Mule solves both dilemmas; a stylish vessel and a great tasting send-off to the summer season.

Other than the fact that Vodka comes from Russia, we’re not really sure why this drink is called a Moscow Mule (unless you make them the way we like them…with a little extra kick!).  Either way, what we are sure of is that we have one of the nicest Moscow Mule Mugs we’ve ever seen.

Beautiful, heavy gauge copper is hand-hammered by an international artists cooperative with its roots in Santa Clara del Cobre, a village located high in the Sierra Madres of Southwestern Mexico and a stateside workshop in Austin, Texas.

All in the Family…

Luxury Home Furnishings Style Blog

Welcome to Homefestdecor.com, the latest version of our website and blog. Now that we are re-launching, we think a little introduction is in order.  Lucky enough to live the country life in Northern Colorado, we also have the good fortune of doing it surrounded by family while doing work that we love.  We are three generations of Coloradans (and assorted dogs and chickens) who love to work, dine, celebrate and play together.

Over the past 24 years, we’ve built a luxury retail business that emphasizes and celebrates the increasing rarity of the artisan craft. If it’s hand thrown, mouth blown, hand carved, hand hammered or hand woven, it’s what we seek out. We think one of life’s greatest luxuries is the experience of owning a piece that someone made by hand and made all the better if it’s a treasure that can be used every day and later passed down. Our goal at Homefest has always been to bring those artisan products to the wonderful customers who come to our Denver store and now, we’d like to share them with new friends who might be looking for a more convenient way to have the Homefest experience.
