party runner

One could use junky dollar store crepe paper items, or…select unique wrapping or craft paper to create special decorations.  

The runner pictured was made with a shiny silver paper made by Hallmark.  Purchasing high quality paper is worth the price as it is durable & has a grid on the reverse for perfectly straight lines.  Other tips:

  • measure the table surfaces before making the decorations
  • use the invitation for coordinating design
  • try different materials – the vines pictured are creamy vinyl, hearts a red sparkly vinyl, orange is craft paper
  • rubber cement = bumpless finish
  • roll the runner on a cardboard tube for transporting & storage
  • incorporate fresh flowers on party day…imagine white mums & orange roses in pictured tulip vases
