Table runner hire
High quality table linen is an essential part of your event planning and styling.
To set the scene for your dining and tie together your entire theme, table linen, table runners, and napkins all play their own role.
Table runner hire is an excellent alternative for table cloths and can be used to elevate your theme, complement your styling, and help create a polished and beautiful setting.
Table runners for hire
Doubling as both a styling feature and functional piece of decor, a table runner plays multiple roles on your tables and as part of your overall theme.
Additionally, if table cloths are not in your budget, table runners are an effective alternative to style your table.
Styling focal point
Centrally align your decor and use your table runner as a guide. This area is where you can place your candles, vases, jars, and table numbers.
Plan your table layout
The table runner acts as a guide where shared plates or accessories like flowers and candlelight can be placed, while the rest of the table (whether that’s an exposed surface or a table cloth covering the whole surface) can stay clear for plates, glasses, and cutlery.
Add a pop of colour or texture
Sometimes your theming will call for more muted or subtle colour and styling.
A great way to inject just a little bit of colour is through a beautiful table runner, laid out perfectly down the centre of all your tables.
Protect the table
If your menu includes hot items, a table runner also doubles as protection!

How to style a table runner
Table runners are a simple, elegant, and effective way to dress up your table setting.
They can be used on most table shapes, including round, square, and long rectangle.
There are two key ways your table runner can be styled: with or without an accompanying tablecloth.
Without a tablecloth
This lends itself perfectly to rustic events, particularly if you have a beautiful table you want to show off.
A runner on its own becomes the focal point of your table, dictates where decor can be placed, and also leaves a majority of your tabletop exposed.
With a tablecloth
If you’d like to add texture and dimension to your table setting, you might like to combine a tablecloth with a table runner adorning the centre. You can create harmony or contrast by using a table runner combined with a tablecloth.
Table runners are also a great way to elevate a venue’s basic table linen.
Table runners for your theme
Table runner hire lends itself to a number of popular and timeless wedding themes. Discover some below.
Consider pairing a relatively woven table cloth with a soft and flowy table runner to add a whimsical, textural look.
Pair pastels with touches of mint, duck egg blue, gold, or silver to add a modern twist.
Show off a beautiful, natural wood table with a table runner down the centre. This leaves room to style your setting while also exposing the natural timber.
Add lush green foliage and choose runners that have a drop, resulting in a beautiful, effortless, and chic look.
Miranda Priestly may disagree with us, but we think there’s no better way to celebrate the end of winter and welcome spring with a display focused on stunning seasonal florals.
(And we hope to also be celebrating the end of lockdown and events getting started again!)
In fact, florals can be tastefully used no matter the time of year or season. For example, dark moody blooms, foliage, and wildflowers are perfect for autumn events.
Florals running throughout your runner creates an eye-catching and beautiful focal point.
Add structure and style without overbearing your table setting with a table runner. Evoke modern, clean lines and minimalist style with a chic runner.
Combine with a tablecloth to achieve a crisp and fresh look.
