Do you want mirroring for tables? not for complete database? if that is the case than you should go for replication.

mirroring will make mirror of full database, if you need table based solution than I would suggest replication. If you like to see more about creating replication than do have a look at below URLs

If you want to keep two tables in two different databases to be in sync, then the simplest way is to have triggers for INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE statements in the Main Server to have it reflected in the Destination Server.
