Natural fibers are the best choice for a table runner, and many of them are machine washable. "They look great with botanical arrangements, handmade place cards, vintage teak candle sticks, you name it; they elevate any mood you're trying to create," Schultz says.

It is worth double checking whether your tablecloth dimensions are recorded in the imperial (feet and inches) or metric (meters and centimeters) system. If you measured your table in inches, make sure to convert those dimensions into whatever units your tablecloth size is measured in.
There are two ways to lay a runner on a round table. You can do a single runner, laid straight across the diameter of the table, leaving two sides of the table free for place settings. The second approach is to set out two table runners in an X pattern through the center of the table, with one person sitting at either point on the X and other guests filling in the spaces in between.
To find out the right units for your table, measure the width and length of the table. You will end up with a measurement like 60 x 40 inches. Height can be included in your measurements if the table has an unusual height.
There are two ways to lay a runner on a square table. You can do a single runner, laid straight across the middle of the table, with one person sitting at either end of the runner, and the other guests filling in the spaces in between. The second approach is to have two table runners set out in an X pattern through the center of the table, with one person sitting at either point on the X.
A square tablecloth is easily the best option for a square table (since a rectangular cloth would be longer on two sides of the table and shorter on the others, and a round tablecloth wouldn't fit the table properly).
the rit website has every color you could dream of and they tell you exactly how much dye you need and how much water you need. i used an old tupperware container that had christmas decor in it to hold my water and mix the dye. depending on how big your table runners are, you might even be able to use just buckets.
I have a question about your dye process. I saw in the comments that you told someone else that you only used one bottle of dye, was that for all 20 table runners? Rits recipes say for something medium like a table cloth you have to use 6 gallons with like a 1/2 cup of dye, which would be a lot of dye for 20 table runners. When you made up your 9 gallon bucket did you dye all of them in that same bucket one after another, or did you dye a few then refill it and start over fresh with the next few. Ive just hear do of the dye getting weaker after a few table runners and didnt know if you had this experience. Thanks!
I absolutely love your runners! I am doing the same thing but we are coloring ours Navy Blue! Any idea how many bottles of Rit you bought? I have seen some websites give measurements on how much to use but the way they make it sound like, 1/2 a bottle only covers 3 yards and I too am trying to do like 100.. any guidance is much appreciated ? thanks in advance!

I work for an events rental company. I would say just rent your linens because a lot of people that I have worked with that tried to buy their own linens ended up getting the incorrect sizes. But if you do end up buying your own try to just find out the right sizes to fit your tables even if you just call a place and ask them.
We bought our table runners off of Amazon because it was cheaper than renting; but with your wedding coming up soon, it would be risky to order and not get what you need. I agree with PP that you need to make sure you have the right sizes if you buy.
I think there is added befit to renting because someone else is responsible for making sure they have the right number and sizes. I ended up renting sequin table cloths through the venue for all the gift, cake, cocktail tables exc and they ended up not using three of them because the rental company wouldn't let them put them on food tables (cake, dessert and coffee/water table) so I got refunded for those three by the venue. If I had got them on my own that would have been $150 wasted.
Your guest count will be lower than the number you invite but it's impossible to estimate. We were able to update the florist and rental company when our final guest count was due so we ended up only paying for what we used. If we had bought table runners, chair cover, centerpiece based on the original guest count or table count we would have wasted a lot of money in extras.
Renting table clothes, I bought my runners (they are mix matched animal prints, gold satin, and red satin) from cvlinens.com for very inexpensive - god thank you for reminding me I need to go order 2 more of each that I got bc we have more tables than I thought at first. I have no problem just throwing them away after or giving them away because they were like 1-2 dollars a piece. It was only worth it for me bc I wouldn't have been able to find what I was looking for in someone else's inventory.
I had my grandma make my table runners. It was cheaper than purchasing. However, I am renting lanterns from my venue because I can rent for $5 each. You could not buy them for that cheap! I'm going to be purchasing the flame less candles for the lanterns. They have a 3 pack at Costco for $10.
We are renting almost everything. We live OOS from where the wedding will be, so we can't bring stuff to the venue easily. Some small stuff like the card box we bought and had shipped to my parent's house, because they'll be driving to the venue.
Table runners add a certain amount of elegance and class to the table and lift the mood of the occasion. Used since medieval times, table runners, not only add on to the aesthetics but also keep the dining area safe from spills and damage. Table runners are often placed over a table cloth or on bare tables, depending on individual preferences.
A table runner is a narrow piece of cloth that adds color, texture, and design to the dining tables. Apart from being an enticing decorative piece, a table runner also protects the table from damage and spills that may be caused due to hot pans, dripping candles, or oil. They are more attractive than a placemat and are easier to clean. 781b155fdc
