    I decided last weekend at the last minute that I wanted table runners. And, of course, I had to make them since I can't find anything to rent/buy last minute like this. So, I bought really pretty satiny fabric from Hobby Lobby and used iron-on hem tape to finish the edges. Over this fabric I put wide wired ribbon in two lengths. These runners will be on my square-shaped table arrangement at the reception, as well as on the paperwork & sand ceremony tables at the ceremony, and the cake table at the reception. You'll have to use your imagination a little on the pictures, because they are shown on a dark table with my poor little orchid standing in as a centerpiece. My actual table linens are white with a khaki overlay, with white chair covers and drowned red rose centerpieces. One down, 6 to go! This is my only thing left to do, so I guess I can save one thing for the last minute!

              WOW there geourgous!

              They look so professional and expensive! After you're weddings over you should think of starting your own custom wedding decoration company... all the stuff you did ~ put me to shame!

                Thanks Lisa! Yes, I love my back yard. The birds are singing, the trees are blooming, and it's such a beautiful sunny day!

                Well, I should with everything I've learned to do now. I just don't think I'm creative enough to come up with different ideas all the time. I have a hard enough time thinking up what to do for myself, much less someone else.

                They're not exactly professional. but they were rather expensive. For 5- 95inch runners and 2- 48inch runners it was about $80 for all the material and ribbon. Not the cheapest project I've done yet, but I think the look will be worth it.
