I’m kinda confused as to what color he bought you and why it won’t work. Is it that the color that came in is too light?

Since you have the runners already, could you go to a fabric store and get some dark brown overlays to go over the tan-colored linens? Then your lime runners would "pop" on the table a little more. Just an idea

I think the overlay idea is a good one!

Yes, I’m confused also. When you are talking about the tan mocha linens.. are you talking about napkins? (I’m thinking that because you said that the clothes are white and the runners are green).

If that is the case I would say go with the tan mocha and see if you can find some nice satin ribbon in a chocolate brown to tie around the napkin.

Did the distributor offer any textured or pattern linens? That could also create a nice complement to the plain white table linens.

I am also confused by the question.  What is the question?  If it were me (and I am understanding that you have table linen that is too light) I would either:

a) leave the white linen and lime runners and rent chocolate brown napkins (less expensive than renting new linen) or

b) use the mocha/tan linen and tie in the color somewhere else (paper lanterns, ribbons, etc)

Good luck!  Don’t stress!
