Will Red, White & Blue be too “4th” for the 10th?

If you did red white and blue it would work, but I would avoid stars and stripes. I had thought about doing July and red white and navy, so I think it would work, just don’t get too kitchy.

I think it depends on HOW you use the colors. If you have red and white checked tablecloths, with some flowers in white vases, and blue napkins, that’s ok. But if you had those red and blue combined toothpicks, that would look very 4th of July to me. Keep the red and blue seperate and I think you’ll be ok. Does that make sense?

Tiffany Blue and Red

 

I think it depends on the blue you use. This doesn’t look like 4th of July to me!

I would do red & white OR blue and white (ie checkered tablecloths) and YELLOW, sunflowers, daisies, etc. Similar to r, w, & b, but just a little different.

@mommy2adelyn , me too! Makes me wish I wasn’t having a winter wedding, lol. I’m imagining galvanized tin buckets filled with cold canned or bottled drinks, old jars filled with flowers, plain white stone wear or spatterwear tin dishes, silk butterflies tucked here and there, lots of votive candles on the tables, sparklers after dark… Almost everything can be purchased on Amazon.com or at your local hardware store. Easy as it gets!
