How To Avoid Mirror Plates And Make Your Centrepieces Look Awesome

When it comes to your evening reception decor, your centrepieces should be a talking point, so you’ll want to make sure you get this spot on. More often than not, couples tend to opt for mirror plates as the base for the centrepieces. Mirror plates have been around for many years and are commonly used to centralise your arrangement and make them stand out. But truth be told, it’s not the only way to add to your gorgeous decor. So to give you some style inspiration, here are my top four alternatives to mirror plates, that will make your table look stylish and different in all the right ways.

If you opt for a rustic theme for your special day, an eclectic collection of clear or coloured bottle vases with fresh florals on different sized logs is a perfect way to bring the outdoors inside. Finish the arrangement with tea lights.

Fill the boxes with water and add floating florals and candles around the main centrepiece. Opt for glass style displays with more height to add to the illusion of space in the banqueting room.

Frames are a great way to make your centrepieces stand out in a quick and simple way. From vintage frames to more modern styles in different materials, your options are endless and you’ll be able to incorporate these into the decor no matter what your final theme may be.
