How To Create a Garland Table Runner
Oh, sweet friends!
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I can’t help but be giddy with excitement! Seriously… How is it already the holidays?! Thanksgiving has long been one of my favorite holidays. Food, family, thankful hearts… I mean, what could be better?! I am thrilled to be back sharing a little entertaining inspiration with you today! Whether you are hosting the whole family or throwing an epic Friendsgiving, this DIY is sure to steal the show!
When it comes to centerpieces, the choices are endless! One thing I learned several years ago while planning our own wedding was not to choose a centerpiece that will block the view and hinder conversation from one side of the table to the other. While a large floral arrangement is beautiful, I’m afraid it makes for awkward dinner conversations. So this Thanksgiving I opted for garland!
For this tablescape, I wanted to create a lush seasonal garland that incorporated plenty of Fall elements. When I first decided that I wanted a garland table runner, I was a bit nervous as to how difficult it would be to create. Let me tell you friends… It was a breeze! With a few tricks I was able to create a gorgeous garland runner in under 15 minutes!
Trick #1: Faux garland! It’s true! The majority of that lush greenery you see photographed is faux. Crazy, right?! After some trial and error, I discovered that faux was the way to go in order to get that lush, thick look that I wanted. The trick is to layer two pieces of garland, one on top of the other! Not only is it gorgeous, but it will also last.
