What do your centerpieces look like?  You could always fold a length over in the middle of the table and set the centerpiece on top.  You’d only see a single line and I’m sure no one would notice.

Cut and sew.  That way you get twice as many for your money.  Maybe someone you know can do it for you as a wedding favor?

I think cutting them in half sounds like a great idea!

Why do you want table runners with ROUND tables?

@feliciaamanda77:  Using 72″ diameter cloths, you are going to have 14″ hangover all around the tables.

The runner should be the same length or shorter= 72″.

Runners are relatively inexpensive. I like the pp’s idea of just making a pleat under the centerpiece. That would leave you with finished hems on both ends of the runner.

@julies1949:  Thanks for sharing that link. I don’t recall having encountered this look before.  I only recall having seen table runners on oblong or rectangular tables. I appreciate your taking time to educate me about that. 🙂

@feliciaamanda77:  As I noted above in my reply to Julies1949, I just don’t recall having seen this look before for round tables. My own experience with table runners is that they generally run the length of an oblong or rectangular table and usually extend over the edges of the table.  I would like to extend my apologies if my question appeared to be rude, because I did not intend it to be. I was actually curious. However, in hindsight, it may have sounded that way. Sorry about that.  🙂

@feliciaamanda77:  You can use anything that goes with your decor under the vases to hide the pleat- a mirror, charger, placemat, tile, tree round, picture frames, a stack of books ,a sheet of scrapbook paper, etc.
