When decorating a table for any occasion or just for a family dinner, starting with the right table runner is essential. A fall table runner can be stunning, and everything else you add to the table will be icing on the cake. Some of the table runners we came across are out of the box and breathtaking.

Fall Table Runner ideas Choosing a table runner holiday appropriate can be a challenge, but it doesn't have to be. Some table runners have beautiful fabrics, some are woven tapestries, but we think we have some that will surprise you with the ingenuity behind them.

Fall Table Runner

Willow Bloom Home

Fall Table Runner by Willow Bloom Home with burlap and lace Burlap and lace combine to make a gorgeous fall table runner. This eye-catching centerpiece wouldn't be complicated to sew but could be made from special lace. Lace from a bridal veil, or grandma's wedding dress or an old tablecloth handed down from generations.

Fall Table Runner by Megan Ann McFarland using cowhide Howdy cowhide! This table thinks outside of the box for sure. Bring the turkey to this table and serve it up on plates being held on guinea hen feathered chargers that add great contrast to the brown and white cowhide table runner.

Johnson FarmhouseFall Table Runner by Megan Charice Johnson window shudder

Tattered wooden shutters are the perfect rustic fall table runner.  We love to see salvaged pieces used in unexpected places. This post is focused on table runners, but we couldn't help but adore the vintage books used as a plate charger. Maybe you find out your guest's favorite book and use that as chargers. Or perhaps you use a dictionary (those are vintage for sure) and tear out the page you best feels defines your guest that will soon sit in that spot.

Life on Summerhill

Last but not least,  we wanted to remind you of our painter drop cloth ruffled table runner. It was simple to make, but again there are some beauties out there you can get your hands on if you aren't able to sew. Fall Table Runner by Life On Summerhill paint drop cloth
