23 Thanksgiving Table Runner Ideas + Home Decor Finds

Table runners aren’t just for decorations. They serve a purpose. A table runner lies in the most used space on the table… the center. Where people place hot cookware, dishes, and other table accessories. It helps protect the furniture from intense heat.

Stylists love a table runner while decorating tablescapes because it creates a focal point for the table. It adds a layer above the tablecloth, giving the table dimension and a subtle (or BOLD) twist.
