A beautiful and inexpensive way to create table runners for your wedding: wrapping paper! You can cut them to any length, roll it down the center of the table, and voila– gorgeous tables in no time at all. Plus, for a really finished look, you can layer them, or create matching place mats or gift favor boxes.
You can also embellish the table runners/place mats by gluing ribbons or other trimming along the sides of the wrapping paper. Scrap-booking papers, while smaller, also provide lots of colorful decorating options, such as place-mats, table numbers, and gift wrap!
