Glam it up with Mercury Glass

WITH FALL JUST A FEW days away, we have begun to bring out the seasonal decor. One of our favorite additions?  Mercury glass. Wait, what?  Mercury glass?  Oh, sorry...some also refer to it as silvered glass.  So, what is this stuff?  The long and short of it is: Mercury glass is a hand blown double layered artistic glass with a liquid silvering solution set between the two layers that was made between the 1830’s and the 1920’s. The finished product looks cracked and damaged, but is quite beautiful..  While the real stuff is fairly pricey, thanks to DIY and the internet, the look of mercury glass can be replicated both easily and inexpensively. Well, pulling out all of our gorgeous pieces for the season made us think of all the wonderful possibilities of incorporating it into a wedding reception.  Here are some beautiful ways to add a little glam to your wedding!
