Wedding Decor: Mirror, Mirror!

Mirrors have been used for years to decorate weddings and for good reason.  Mirrors are fairly inexpensive and work wonders to make a centerpiece go from fair to fantastic!

One of the biggest reasons brides use mirrors is to reflect light.  Placed under any flower arrangement and paired with candles a mirror will make the entire centerpiece sparkle.

Over the last year, brides are thinking outside of the box and using mirrors in unique and creative ways.  Check out these DIY framed mirror stands with table numbers painted on them!

Beveled mirrors are being used as chargers under the guest plates.  How gorgeous is this?  Although it could get quite expensive if you have a lot of guests.

Try laying down three or more mirrors together or buying a long piece of mirrored glass to create a table runner!

Mirrored vases and mirrored columns are a new modern way to use mirrors.  Mirrored vases are also an easy DIY project if you are crafty!

Another way to use mirrors is to find one large mirror to display that you can write your menu or guest tables on.  Such a unique and stunning way to display information to your guests!

My favorite way to use mirrors is to hang them to make a jaw dropping backdrop!

Wedding Decor: Fruits and Veggies

Incorporating unique elements in to your ceremony and reception decor is a great way to make your wedding unique.  One of easiest ways to do this is to use fruits and vegetables in your bouquets and centerpieces!

For example, berries are a great addition to a bouquet.  They add a touch of color and from afar look like tiny intricate flowers!

One of my favorite vegetables to use are artichokes.  Placed amongst other flowers or vegetables it looks amazing and extremely unique!

The bouquet below mixed the baby artichokes with kale and radishes…who knew that would look so stunning?!

Almost any fruit you can think of  looks great in a bouquet or centerpiece.  Apples, pears, oranges, lemons and limes are some of the most popular.  The vibrant color of the fruit is a great way to add a splash of color to any arrangement!

Can you believe this table centerpiece is made using green tomatoes?  So creative and beautiful!

Using fruits and vegetables in your decor can also help to save money especially if you want to make a centerpiece fuller.  It is a lot less expensive to use fruit and veggies than to use fresh flowers.  And if you are crafty, this is a great DIY project!

Are you using fruit in your wedding centerpieces?  What fruit or vegetables are you using?

Wedding Decor: Vintage Birdcages!

Birdcages are not just being used as gift card holders anymore!  With the popularity of vintage themed weddings, birdcages are being used in so many different ways to decorate ceremony and reception spaces.  If you are having a rustic or vintage themed wedding you can use birdcages for an easy and inexpensive DIY decor element.

A great way to incorporate birdcages is to use them as the centerpieces for the tables at your reception!  Vintage birdcages are beautiful by themselves and with candles or flowers they become stunning centerpieces.

You can find small birdcages to use as pew ends or even use them as place cards at every place setting.

Or find a large birdcage to hang and display place cards!  Some brides are also using it as a “wishing well” where guests can leave them their well wishes!

One of the most beautiful ways I have seen birdcages used is to hang them from a tree or tent.  You can even put candles in the birdcages and use them as romantic lighting.  Just stunning!

And if you want to go all out with the bird cage theme why not have a bird cage wedding cake?
