Decorating for a meal? Choosing greenery as your table runner or centerpieces is an easy decor option that can be dressed up or kept simple. Greenery comes in hundreds of varieties and can be easy to work with too! Let us guide you through the creation of this DIY table runner using Italian Ruscus greenery. We chose Ruscus because it's hardy, long-lasting and available year-round. We hope our DIY story inspires you to create your own table runner and explore the many varieties of greenery to choose from!


Grab a few stems of the Italian Ruscus greenery and lay them out in the middle of a table. For reference, the table in the photo is 8 ft x 3 ft. Then we began to add more stems in an extending line down the tables, carefully adjusting the stems so that the ends were hidden in the greenery. We didn't use any floral wire to secure the branches together, The styled greenery stems created a gorgeous focal point down the table and didn't move. If you prefer to secure the stems you have the option of wiring them together. It took a total of 30 stems to create this lush table runner.

The great thing about creating your own runner is the ability to customize it to fit your style! You can, of course, go a little lighter with the greens like we did with our next look. Since we were going with a minimal table runner look, we decided to add in a few mums in bud vases. Bud vases are not only cute and affordable but they can be used as a water source too. It took a total of 18 stems to create this runner.

Our wholesale greenery is packed in a grower's bunch, typically around 5 to 8 stems per bunch.
