    Table runners are rarely as long as the cloth

     According to Emily Post’s 1922 book on etiquette, table runners for a luncheon should be long enough to hang over the edge of the table on each end. Suzanne Von Drachenfels’ book “The Art of the Table” states that they should hang about 15 inches over each end of the table.
