I don’t know about you but I just love the effect a table runner has on a gorgeously set tablescape at an elegant wedding or homespun shindig. I’m sure the majority that you’ve seen are made up of some kind of fabric or linen but if we just think outside the box a little, there are oh-so many more materials that can be used! One of them being, wait for it…. wallpaper. Yes, WALLPAPER! Just think about it, though there are thousands of fabrics and linen patterns at our fingertips, there may be even more in wallpaper designs. This could be the perfect way to achieve a print that can only be found inside your head for the time being and add some flare to your table tops!
Blue Pattern, Pink Pattern, Yellow Pattern
The next, which makes such an impact is an organic element like moss or wheat grass. Just look at it next to bright white. It pops and provides the perfect juxtaposition between chic and clean and organic and rugged.I came across this doily runner, recently, as you may have seen in a previous blog but just couldn’t leave it out! Not only does it look great but it can also incorporate family heirlooms, a vintage feel or DIY project into your day.Burlap linens and table runners have really take off in popularity in the past couple of years and for good reason. They are the perfect way to achieve a rustic feel or rustic elegance.
Add a little something extra with a print or even a good old fashioned potato sack!

- In keeping with the spirit of rustic elegance, go with a distressed wood plank. I love this look.
- Lastly, jazz up your tables with a mosaic tile accent. You may have to hit up the hardware store for this one but it will be something your guests don’t see every day and add a little extra color to your tables!
