Reflecting

Our shop looked like House of Mirrors this week! Mirrors of all sizes: 4 x 6" up to 35 x 29", were propped all around the shop. Avoiding our reflection was impossible!  

Why so many mirrors, you ask? No, we are not trying to diversify our business offerings, and no, we are not that vain! It turns out that couples are using them in their wedding as a means of communicating information: table numbers, seating assignments, menus, quotes, directions, etc. We were hired to do calligraphy and make the messaging on the mirrors look beautiful! And, we did just that! 

If you want a vintage or rustic look, using mirrors and window frames are an easy and fairly budget friendly way to help set the scene.  Check out thrift stores or Goodwill for mirrors and consider spray painting them gold or silver for a little extra glam. If you are going for a more rustic look,  head over to your local Restore or architectural salvage place for old windows. A neat little tip: Use erasable or washable ink and reuse your mirrors or windows after!
