Unique Table Runner Ideas

Table runners are a great way to easily dress up your tables, adding to the visual impact of your reception room or space. I have rounded up some of my favourite unique ideas for table runners- many of which you can easily DIY!

Floral Runners

For outdoor weddings or those with a garden or woodland theme, you can consider adding a natural, organic runner using anything from flowers, to fruits, vegetables, leaves, moss, rocks etc. Floral runners are perfect if you want to add some lush texture to your tables.

Leaf Garland Table Runners

I love the way the sunset coloured, fall leaves in the pic on the left are used. The effect is strikingly beautiful! You will notice that the tables in the pics to the right (magnolia leaves garland above and lemon and lime garland at the below), are left very minimalist for a lovely, organic tablesecape.

Moss Table Runners

This is an easy DIY whether you use natural moss or fabricated. For tips on growing your own moss and to see more moss  projects take a look at this post.

Clementine and Poppy Table Runner

Such an unusual and lovely idea! I love the idea of using fruit in the table runner but because that may be quite costly locally (here in Barbados), I would probably just keep it to the head table.

Wooden Table Runners

What a great way to add a rustic touch! This would also work well for a beach or sea-side theme with clusters of shells.

Lace Table Runners

I am obsessed with the rustic elegance which springs from the lovely pairing of soft, delicate lace with simple, wooden tables. For these runners, you can use upcycled or vintage lace or doilies for an eco-friendly, low-cost and easy DIY.

Ikat Table Runners

Patterns add quite a punch and the ikat runners below are impactful without being overbearing. These would be great for modern brides who love mixing it up as well as for bohemian brides who are searching for an eclectic look.

Chevron Table Runners

Chevron is still a big fave in the wedding world but what is really trendy right now is adding a little sparkle as seen in the two pics on the right. Chevron + sparkly sequins = so much win!

Ribbon Table Runners

Another great idea you can DIY! You can play with different colours, textures and sizes to create any kind of style- the three runners below project different looks- rustic elegance, vintage glam and a touch of whimsy.

Watercolour Table Runners

Have some fun indulging in your artistic side by creating a watercolour table runner!

Geometric Table Runner

Ruffled has a DIY tutorial for creating this unique and stylish geometric runner.

Beach Wedding Table Runners

Of course, I had to add in some great beach wedding runners- the first (left) is made of oyster shells and the second (right) is a mesh runner with dendrobium orchids and tea light candles. So gorgeous!

More Table Runner Ideas

Using a double runner (first pic, top left)  allows you to pair different colours and textures for more impact. You can also tie your runner and add a simple flower or branch to dress it up as was done with the brulap table runner in the top pic on the right.

To create the lovely pinwheel table runner (bottom, left), you can find instructions here. If you want the impact of sequined linens like the gold table runner in the last pic (bottom, right) but want to DIY  it, why not use glitter instead? Here’s a tutorial.

Using creative runners can really save you some money by allowing you to minimize the rest of table decor. Hopefully this has sparked some ideas for you. Let me know your thoughts- leave a comment or find me on Facebook or Twitter.

  3. After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts
