Add Festive Style to Your Table With a Holiday Table Runner

A holiday table runner is an excellent addition to your decor at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah or any other special holiday. You'll be able to add a splash of festive style, increase visual interest and protect the table beneath centerpieces and serving dishes. Simply drape your table runner across the length of your table. Ideally, your table runner will be approximately 25 percent of the width of your table and will drape at least 6 inches over the ends, providing you with an effortless but perfectly styled look.

Christmas and Hanukkah Table Runners

Bring in plenty of holiday cheer with a Christmas or Hanukkah table runner that you can layer with coordinating dishes and centerpieces. Choose a beautiful solid color, a festive print or simple pattern to add style to your table. Look for embroidered reindeer, holly berries and pinecones, snow-covered villages and other holiday-themed designs or keep things simple and put all the focus on your centerpiece and decor - either way, a Christmas- or Hanukkah-themed runner makes a wonderful complement to your style.

Thanksgiving Table Runners

Serve the biggest meal of the year with the visual appeal of a Thanksgiving table runner. A runner is a perfect complement to your centerpiece and Thanksgiving dinnerware whether you're hosting all your family or you're keeping things simple this year. Choose between simple fall colors, great patterns and other designs, or consider a table throw for more coverage.

4th of July, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Patriotic Table Runners

Show your patriotism with a patriotic table runner designed like the American flag or choose solid colors and patterns befitting national holidays. Choose a quilted table runner with red stripes and tassels, a linen hemstitch runner or a table runner with rustic stripes to create a look that you and your guests will love. Opt for cotton or linen - or a blend of the two - because both are easy to care for and clean.

Holiday Tablethrows

A table throw provides more coverage than a table runner does and you can layer it with all your favorite dishes. Look for one with a simple and versatile embroidered pattern to add panache to your table for any holiday.

Use your holiday table runner to create visual appeal and style when you're entertaining, whether you're hosting a large group or a small get-together of your closest friends. Layer it on top of a tablecloth or use multiple runners width-wise on your table so they can serve as shared placemats between your guests.
