    Charger plates always go on sale after Christmas. I think I got mine for like a dollar or a dollar fifty from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

    @Whitney818:  I was able to snag 150 with no problem. I’d offer to sell them to you if my date weren’t after yours. But maybe someone on OnceWed or Ebay or Craigs has some listed for even cheaper than sale.

    There are gold chargers for sale for as little as 50 cents each on craigslist:

    Are the mirror tiles all the same shape and size? You could get old picture frames at thrift shops and spray paint them gold. Place them on top or surrounding the mirror tile depending on the size of the frame.

    I love the look of doilies or scrapbook paper used instead of chargers.

    Here they used a white doily, wrote the names on the doily to serve double duty as a placecard, then topped the doily with a clear glass plate used as a charger.

    This is a square of scrapbook paper on top of a colored cloth with the aqua napkin on the plate. They also used a patterned runner.

     

    Teal and coral print scrapbook paper would be a great pop of color.

     This doily is currently sold out but hopefully will come back in stock

     If you can find teal or coral doilies, look how pretty they are used as a runner.
