The Rustic Charm of Burlap Table Runners

A table runner is a simple and inexpensive way to add an extra decorative touch to your table layout. They work for a variety of casual or formal dining events and come in a variety of sizes that can be placed on tables of any shape or length. Not restricted to events, runners can even see everyday use on any dining or coffee table.

One of the most popular materials for table runners is burlap. A burlap runner gives a rustic look that is ideal for a country-style theme, while still affording your table layout a luxurious presentation. The rustic style is perfect for outdoor events, as well as for bringing an outdoor atmosphere to an indoor function.

Burlap is a versatile material that works equally well as part of a variety of themes. The inclusion of other burlap accessories such as placemats and chair sashes can result in burlap as the main theme of your layout. Alternatively, a burlap runner can also be used as an accent for other fabrics or color schemes and with or without a tablecloth; the color and texture of burlap is ideal for use on the bare wood of a table.

Burlap is most often left as its natural tan color, with plain edges. However, it can be finished with a variety of edges and even be decorated with lace for a more delicate look. Faux burlap is also an option; usually made of polyester, these give the appearance of burlap but are both softer to the touch much easier to maintain. Although the natural tan color is popular, runners are available in a range of similarly muted colors, thus providing the same rustic charm but in a tone that is perhaps more easily matched to an existing theme. The flexibility of burlap table runners makes them a great addition to any table layout.
