With fall around the corner, I'm shopping for more autumn appropriate tableware, specifically table runners. But after seeing this video, it looks like I won't be using my table runner for entertaining...

Smart, right? Don't worry -- if a valance isn't your thing, there are many uses for table runners that don't even involve sewing. A few of my favorites?:

1. Wall Hanging
Hang either vertical or horizontal for an unexpected dash of textiles in an otherwise bare space. The look is beautiful, whether framed or unframed. I'd go with a pattern or embroidery-inspired table runner to make the most of the aesthetic.

2. Gift Basket Lining
The perfect hostess gift always includes something for the table. Why not line your basket with a table runner for a re-usable and inventive way to welcome your neighbor to a new community? Include fresh flowers, fruit and seasonal teas for a wonderful, creative gift that any hostess will love.

Table runners aren't just for the kitchen anymore; get creative and mix things up... you'll be thrilled with the result.
