Yes, the runner usually hangs about 12-18 inches over the side.  Usually the width of the runner is between 10-12 inches.  It just really depends on what you want it to look like, some people like them wide, some like them more narrow.  My mom made 11 inch runners for 60″ round tables, they hang about 8″ over the table (couldn’t add length to the bolt of fabric because of how the pattern was).

I would make the runners 14″ wide so they don’t look skimpy.

as of right now im using round tables. If your unsure of the length go to your venue and bring a peices of string or ribbon or fabric and lay it out on the table to see what length that you would want and cut it and use it for your length measurement….. I would not go any smaller then 14inch wide because it does look cheesey on the tables. i have been thinking of doing wider then the 14 inch to give a more dramatic effect on the table and have been thinking of using colour burlap as well giving it a two tone effect.
