I discovered that table runners weren’t as cheap as I first thought, specially the ones I had in mind! After a little research (which consisted of about 2 hours on eBay), I decided to make my own for the fraction of the cost. After working out the length I needed for the tables, I purchased more than enough hessian fabric along with some beautiful lace for central detail. All came to about £40 for about 12 or so runners.
I say I made… my wonderful nan helped me 🙂
The first picture here is my wedding, sadly the best photo I have where you can actually see the runners.
However, after my wedding I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I passed them onto my dear friend Katy. She had round tables so wasn’t able to use them in the same way, instead she cut each one into three strips and turned them into bows. These were attached to the end of the pews in the church. They looked amazing!
