@Jolly81:  I think you’re fine without the mirrors, it sounds like there is a lot going on already and if you add the mirror with the reflection it might become tooo busy.

@Jolly81:  I’m not usually a fan of mirrors used in centerpieces, but I think in this case it would work to give that icy, wintery look you are going for.

I think centerpieces are fine without mirrors at any time.

You definitely don’t need them. I think we used them only because our venue threw them in for free!

I think mirrors are nice for candle-heavy centerpieces because it gives a lot of reflection and light, but definitely not required for what you’re describing! It sounds pretty though.

Does sound like your have a lot going on already, so I don’t really think it’d be too missed if you didn’t have them. Maybe try to do a mock one though just to make sure, I love the way the mirrors reflect candle light.

My centerpieces were something like that as well, we used glittery material in the clear vase, put an led light in the bottom and put the glitterized sticks in. we also had pinecones, If we had mirrors it would have been too much, so I think you’re fine without them
