Unique Centerpiece Idea: Fresh Flower Runners

Upgrade the standard centerpiece by draping your tables with a statement-making table runner made of lush and beautiful blooms.

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.
