From floral arches to towering flower walls (à la Kim and Kanye), couples are using wedding flowers in unexpected and totally original ways. Case in point: Table runners made of fresh blooms and greenery are popping up all over Pinterest.
These blooming accent pieces completely transform a classic tablescape into something fresh. From bright colorful options to seasonal-inspired displays, there's a floral runner for every type of wedding. We found cascading centerpieces made of peonies and hydrangeas fit for a romantic or boho affair, while more understated arrangements featuring lush greenery and simple white roses would please the bride hosting a classic celebration.
And though a runner made of blossoms will cost more than the average floral centerpiece, budget-conscious couples can still try the trend: Adjust the amount of flowers and consider more seasonal blooms. Or skip the buds all together, and instead choose a style that's made of lush greenery. The leafy option will still make a stylish statement and it will give off a cool, rustic vibe.
If you've already planned your wedding centerpieces but love these gorgeous styles, consider decorating your sweetheart table or dessert display with a floral runner. You can also use the picture-perfect accents at your bridal shower or rehearsal dinner.
