What is a table runner and why do I need one?
Add some style to your meal and make a statement with our selection of table runners. A table runner is the long strip of cloth that is placed in the middle of the table, and it is often in a contrasting colour to your tablecloth. The size of a table runner that you choose should depend on the size of your table, with the more traditional look having the table runner lengthwise and centre of the table, with enough length to govern each side. However, this is not set in stone, and you can mix and match for a funky display. We do recommend measuring your table before making your purchase so that you can choose the right table runner for you. They can be simple and informal or ornate and elegant, and they are a great way to tie your colour scheme together, adding understated glamour to your meal.

How can I clean my new Table Runner?
Well, that depends on which of our table runners you have picked from this fabulous selection, and we always recommend that you check the manufacturer's care instructions before cleaning. If your table runner is machine washable, then wash on a gentle or cold wash and do not tumble dry. It is always better to address stains as soon as possible, however, if you are still mid-meal simply place a few drops of cold water on the stain and cover with table salt. This will help you to remove the stain later on. Avoid the use of any harsh or abrasive chemicals, such as chlorine or bleach.
