DIY Mirror Vases

I decorated an elegant but simple engagement party for a dear friend of mine this past weekend. I was on the hunt for an affordable, small simple centerpiece that fit the space and the couple and I found it!

Many have done this and documented it on Pinterest, I am sharing here how I did it just in case it would be helpful for any of you.

I started at one of my favorite stores for a good DIY… The Dollar Tree! These square mirrors are actually candle holders or candle bases, I guess?

First, I removed the foam “feet” from mirrors. Then, to attach mirrors to each other, I decided to use a squared dowel I got at Hobby Lobby, I believe. I cut those down to about an inch shorter than mirrors, four per centerpiece. Next, I started hot gluing!

Once complete, don’t forget to Windex to remove all the fingerprints! To set up this “vase” I added a small plastic cup inside with water and fresh flowers! Easy peasy!

Final Fiesta-Themed Bachelorette Party

My sister and I were stumped when it came to planning the little details of my cousin’s out on the town type bachelorette party. So we took it down to basics, sometimes all you need for inspiration is a cocktail! In this case, we asked the bride-to-be what she wanted to drink that evening and she said… TEQUILA! A Final Fiesta Theme was born!

Of course, with tequila comes margaritas and these adorable personalized margarita glasses were a must.

Who could possibly do without a rhinestoned Tequila bottle? Not I! And of course personalized shot glasses so that no matter what you were drinking, you didn’t forget your name!

We rounded out the event with a Mexican buffet which covered us for dinner and then again for round two after the shenanigans out on the town… a win-win!

What’s your favorite kind of bachelorette bash? Out on the town craziness or stay in and play drinking games? We did a little of both for this celebration.
