Fresh & Fabulous Flower Table Runners for Your Reception

Over the past year, we've seen some incredible real weddings that feature one of our favorite wedding trends: overflowing floral table runners. This unique centerpiece design looks especially striking on a long king's table – over a luxurious linen for a formal affair or a bare wooden table for a rustic-chic wedding. Have your floral designer put together a garland of your wedding flowers – we've seen billowing blooms such as hydrangeas, roses, dahlias, and peonies accented with green leaves, verdure, and amaranthus – and "run" it along your head table, reception tables, or even your cake table.

This low centerpiece design creates a striking décor element for your reception, just like towering floral centerpieces; however, the imaginative design makes it easy for guests to speak to one another throughout your event while adding a sophisticated, effortless look to the floral design of your wedding reception.

Take a look at the inspirational real-wedding photos below, and let us know if you would consider this trend for your own event!
