Mirror, Mirror On The Wall... Or Gate!

So, have you thought about mirrors as accents but  reconsidered?  
They can be so boring and hey, they are just mirrors. Done that, Right!
Well, Ashley and I brought them to life in new ways at her wedding. 

I have all sorts of shapes and sizes but the oval was just what we were looking for.

 We used the oval mirrors as the base for the centerpiece and added beautiful mercury glass vases and filled them with flowers to the brim! Thank you Flower Allie! They reflected the beauty above but were so understated it worked!!

 We went a bit farther.... We wanted some sort of welcome as the guests made their way to the back courtyard. So, with the mercury glass fresh in my mind, I thought it would be magical to have a mirror as the welcome accent. The ladies could check their hair without being noticed and the message would be warm and wonderful....
We added Ashley's lovely mini suitcase with fans for the ladies on a lace topped table. A few more crystal vases with flowers and waalaa... a special welcome to their ceremony! 

 Ashley's grandmother delighted us all with your beautiful penmanship and helped us create a stunning presentation!! Michelle Kunz of Luminaire Images captured the writing beautifully.

Do you have ideas that your just not sure of? 
Be brave and experiment. If it doesn't work in one situation, it will in another!
