@MiraJo:  How long are your tables? What length of overhang does this give you?

Normally the runner overhangs the edge of the round tables by 12-18″.

I’ve been having the same thought. I think it would look fine. Why not? And honestly, if you like it, that’s all that matters – no one else will really pay much attention. For round tables, I’m thinking just a similar runner across the middle  from one edge to another would be great (with all of the tables having the same direction of runner, so it doesn’t chaotic).

@MiraJo:  I think it would look odd. When you said “short runner”, I thought you meant at least some overhang.

With a 30′ foot roll of burlap, you can get three 10 foot runners, which gives you one foot of overhang on each end- which would be perfect.

Is it financially impossible to do 3 runners per roll rather than four?
