Natural Table Runner
After seeing the gorgeous Shell and Rafia Garland and Tableskirt, this was a little underwhelming. The shells are all dark brown and it has huge crease marks in it. It's still cute and I will use it, just not as impressive as the other two.

This is not burlap....
Purchased multiples of these to modify and give as gifts, and was disappointed to find that these are not made out of burlap. That is why almost all the reviews discuss stiffness and/or creasing. It is made of woven rattan, and like any natural rattan, can be moistened to freshen and reshape. I gave it 2 stars instead of one because overall as a RATTAN table runner, it is quite nice for the price. But it is not what was advertised, and I will have to return the product.

It so beautiful and detailed in person. I love the color and feel of it. It will be used for my wedding shower in Feb 2013. I plan on buying more of them.

Great for Beach theme wedding reception
Used these as table runners over white disposable tablecloths for my daughter's beach-themed wedding reception. Added variety of shells along the center of the runner & then floating tropical flowers in centerpiece bowls. Got lots of compliments on the beachy look!! Even had a friend borrow them for her son's rehersal dinner! Rolled the runners up end to end to help minimize the fold/crease - but really minor issue for the overall effect.

This runner was perfect for the beach theme party I arranged. It was a little stiff, however, and the fibers caught on the tablecloth I used under it. Good value for the money though. I would purchace it again.

Luau Party Favorite
This table runner will be just the right detail for my August Luau. My runner came with a mix of light and dark colored shells. The best thing about this runner is the way it creates a luau ambiance. It will be perfect with scattered seashells, starfish, beach themed candles and luau inspired tableware. I'm going to get another one because I'll probably be using at least two tables.

This table runner is beautiful and you can't beat the price! It did need to be sprayed with water to get the creases out but otherwise in great condition.

I bought this to use for a luau birthday party. It is really pretty but very stiff.

Best with a beach theme~
I bought this for a western/country theme and cut the shells off. If you look closely at the picture, you can see a crease and if you buy this be prepared for at least 4 of them. I'm not sure if I can carefully iron out the creases or not. I've got my fingers crossed!
