Stylish Long Tablescapes on a Budget #7: Roll Out a Table Runner

Roll Out a Long Table Runner

A table runner rolled out along the length of the table unifies the scene and might provide all the table decoration you need. With a table runner, you might even get away with not using tablecloths, especially if you want to design a table with a rustic feel.

You can also combine a table runner with a tablecloth or place additional decorative elements like flowers or candles on top of it. The layers of color, pattern, and texture will create a lush tablescape with deep visual interest.

When selecting a table runner, consider how the fabric will contribute to the feeling you are trying to achieve. Think about not only the color scheme of your wedding, but also the type and texture of the fabric. Velvet is lush and deeply romantic. Cottons lend an informal feel. Linen can be refined and softly romantic, or iron it with starch to give your table a crisp, formal sensibility.

Table runners are a fun reception detail to play with and an easy way to personalize your wedding. Look out for tomorrow’s post: How to make a table runner for your wedding reception…
