When you buy or craft a table runner you need to consider your table size so measure the width and length of your table. The runner width should be equal to 1/3 of the width of the table and its length should be 30 cm longer, so that the edges would hang 12-15 cm from each end of the section. There are no particular rules how to lay a table runner. It can be used in different ways as per your own taste. Most often it is placed in the center of the table on the tablecloth. In this case it is advisable that the runner is in a different color from the main tablecloth. The runner can be used to place your festive decoration or a spectacular centerpiece – vases with flowers and fruits, candles, etc. If you have a round table, make sure that the runner is long enough. X-shaped runners look really good on round tables.

Besides the traditional rectangular shape of the table runner, it can be used in various other shapes – flowers, vegetables or anything else. Such runners are best used for seasonal holidays or special theme parties. Colorful flowers would be perfect for a girl’s birthday party, a carrot – for Easter holidays, autumn leaves – for Halloween. Knitted lace doilies on the table are a magnificent interior decoration at any season. The elegance and sophistication of such runners will give your room a sense of romance.
