Table runners are designed to compliment your table settings and add a great touch of elegance to any tablescape. There are not any rules or guidelines as to how a table runner should be used, we have found in our experience that people will be fluid with their designs when using table runners and can be used for both formal and casual events alike. Table runners may be placed horizontally on the table or vertically for a completely different look.
To your left of the screen under the table runner category you will find and can choose from the 16 fabrics we offer: Here you will find Poly Premier, Havana Collection, Majestic, Poly Stripe, Poly Check, Bombay Pintuck, Fandango, Somerset, Melrose, Saxony, Kenya, Miranda, Taffeta and Lace. In addition, in the tablecloth categories under Burlap and Sequins, you will find the popular Burlap runners and Sequin table runners listed there.
Table runners are available with square ends or pointed ends or the choice of one end square and one end pointed. The pointed ends are created by folding the two corners under and stitching them in place. This gives it a straighter edge versus cutting the fabric to a point. The options for square ends or pointed ends are offered in each product which you will see once you make your selection.
What size table runner do I need?
A very common question that we hear all the time from our customers. In order to calculate your runner length you will need to know 2 factors. Firstly how much of a drop do you want on your table runners. Thsi means how much do you wish them to hang over the end or the side of the table, dependable upon your design. So lets say that you have an 8 foot banquet table and you want a table runner to drop 12 inches on either end.
So lets do the math, your table is 8 feet long (96 inches) You would like your runner to drop 12 inches on either end of the table. 96 + 12 + 12 = 120 inches long. So thats all well and good for a runner that you want to run the length of the table.
Now if you wanted your runner to run across the table in the middle for example. Your 8 foot banquet tabe is 30 inches deep, and you would like a drop of 15 inches on either side. Again lets do the math, Your table is 30 wide + 12 drop on front + 12 drop on back = 54 inches. Your table runner would need to be 54 inches long.
