By now you all know how I feel about mirrors on a table, and how they have no place in the design landscape. How many events have I ripped to shreds because of this, I wonder...
However, there's something you need to know. It is quite possible to break the no-mirrors rule. If you do it right then I will salute you. Pay attention and learn.
The only way you can get away with mirrors is when the ENTIRE TABLE TOP is a mirror. Besides that, there is no other reason to include mirrors unless you are lazy or don't know what you are doing.
Pictured is an event tablescape design that uses tabletop mirrors. When the mood of an event is dark, it's a challenge to light it correctly. Therefore, a tabletop mirror is completely appropriate and useful. Notice the elements on the table are NOT mirrors. In stead, the objects have mirror finishes. Do not confuse the two. They are not the same thing.
