Table runners are a great addition to a private event or wedding tablescape. Runners are a great finishing touch, that can work with a multitude of table designs.

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.
Wedding table runners for your theme
Table runner hire lends itself to a number of popular and timeless wedding themes. They can be used either independently to leave the majority of your dining table exposed, or in conjunction with a tablecloth to add texture and colour. Discover some of the themes that lend themselves perfectly to table runners.
Romantic wedding theme
Romantic wedding celebrations are timeless, elegant, and full of love. No wonder they’ve stood the test of time as one of the most popular wedding themes!
Best of all, they can be totally customised to match your favourite colours, shades, and palette. For example, you can pair pastels with touches of mint and duck egg blue, or incorporate a touch of modern glamour with accents of gold and silver.
Consider pairing a woven tablecloth with a soft and flowy table runner to add a whimsical, textural look.
Rustic wedding theme
A rustic wedding theme is flexible and personal, as it can be adapted to reflect the couple’s style as well as their relaxed, chic vibe.
We love using table runners as part of a rustic theme. They are the perfect way to add style and structure, running down the centre of a table, while leaving a portion of natural timber exposed.
A long table runner also acts as a guide to dictate where decor can be placed, leaving enough room for plates and glasses for guests.
Add lush green foliage and opt for 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 – for good – as events get 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, while bright florals are perfect for a springtime celebration.
Florals running throughout your runner create an eye-catching and beautiful focal point.
Focus on foliage
Similar to florals – but a little more muted. Incorporating greenery is a brilliant way to elevate a rustic or farmhouse themed wedding, and also provides an opportunity to add some wedding foliage to your table runner without having to choose coloured flowers.
It’s nature’s own version of “neutral”, but also allows you to add some colour. Foliage is a fantastic base and can be enhanced with white to keep it classic, or teamed with brighter pops of colour for something more unique.
A table runner is the perfect way to dictate where foliage can sit, allowing enough room for guests’ plates, glassware, and cutlery.
Minimalist wedding theme
Reduced visual clutter, muted, consistent colour tones, and clean, solid lines: a minimalist wedding theme is classy, timeless, and chic.
Add structure and style without overbearing your table setting with a table runner. Evoke modern lines and minimalist style with a chic runner.
A light and flowy table runner (such as chiffon) is also an understated way to add a little texture without looking overbearing. You can also combine your table runner with a tablecloth to achieve a crisp and fresh look.
Keep it simple with minimal foliage and gold or silver cutlery and sparkling glassware, or choose coloured napkins for a more subtle injection of colour.
