Pinterest Trends: Mixed-Media Table Runners

August 28th, 2012 | By Ashleigh Davis in Design + Decor, Wedding

Table runners offer a way to add a splash of color, for less cost than an entire table cloth. The current trend right now, though, is taking runners to a new level using various mediums. By using photos, book pages, flowers, dyed cloth, driftwood and even oysters, the look of your tables can go from basic to stunning.

We hope you enjoy the following collection of ideas – ranging from classic to extremely clever.

    I love the photos and oysters for table runners, but I’d be afraid they’d break/tear. I think I would end then at the end of the table, rather than running them to the ground.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Yes – if you have little ones or pets, it could definitely become a tug-of-war game very quickly. And would end very, very badly!

      Seriously! I have no excuses, though, when I have kids and begin throwing birthday parties. The pressure is on!
