Centerpiece mirrors are a gorgeous way to accent your event décor. The key is choosing the right shape and size for your display. Whether you’re building the perfect wedding centerpiece or trying to draw attention to your accent décor, these simple event accessories are very eye-catching. Mirrors will add depth through reflection so your finished arrangement looks bigger, fuller and more detailed. How can you incorporate centerpiece mirrors in your event décor? 

Match the Mirror Shape with Your Vase or Base

Centerpiece mirrors come in many shapes, although the most popular are round and square. When selecting the ideal shape, make sure you find something that is similar to the vase or base of your décor. This is especially important when building a centerpiece that will be the main focal point on your tables. If you use a block vase, then use a square mirror. If you are using something round like a cylinder or bud vase, then a round mirror is an ideal choice. If you are building something with smaller components rather than one big focal point, then you can experiment with other shapes. Try an octagon, heart, oval or placemat mirror. You can try placing objects off center to complement the wider and narrower parts and profile of the mirror.

Plain Mirrors vs. Detailed Mirrors

Some centerpiece mirrors include extra details like a scalloped edge or pattern. Others include a plain silver surface. So which is going to work best with your centerpiece or accent décor? A lot depends on the style of your décor. Plain mirrors as well as those with a beveled edge are ideal for arrangements that will show less of the mirror. On the other hand, if you are using a narrow vase or something that will show more surface area, then a detailed accessory like our round patterned mirror is a great choice.

Sizing Your Centerpiece Mirrors

You have many sizes to choose from when searching for centerpiece mirrors. Make sure the mirror is large enough to show around the edges of your vase or base. After all, you want some reflection to be visible. A large mirror works with a narrower vase that will include a full, cascading bouquet. If you are going for something simpler with a narrow vase and just a couple of roses or a slim branch, then a wider mirror might be too much. Balance visual appeal by using a mirror that grabs attention without distracting from your décor.
