Table Runner

peonygirl's picture

Hi, We bought a new kitchen table and chairs and I don't have a centerpiece for it, but wanted to add some colour.  Could I add a table runner, or are table runners more for the dining room?  Thoughts and any suggestions greatly appreciated!  Thanks.

Hello peonygirl,

I agree, since you don't already have a runner in the dining room, you could use one on the kitchen table. Since the holidays are approaching, you may get some ideas from the Tabletop Tips section of our Holiday Entertaining Guide. Or browse all of our tabletop content for inspiration photos.

Good luck with the centerpiece!

Thanks CarrieinSK.  We have a Dining Room but no table as yet.  But, I see your point.  Maybe I will try a centrepiece...but just not sure of what to do.  I have some colourful balls in my family, I thought that might be overdoing it with the balls.
