Eek I’m not sure if lime would go with the red barn as you describe. Teal would go a bit better. Do you have to do chair sashes? This picture has mint and not teal but maybe accenting with peach would be softer than coral?

Can you post pics of the colors in question?

Do you have to use everything just because it was gifted? Those are very bright colors. I’d just use the table cloths and anything else that’s more muted in color and figure out where else I can pinch pennies.

You don’t have to use the chair sashes for starters. That might help the decision making.

Do you have enough blue cloths for all the tables? Or, will you need to supplement with another color? If so, I would use white. Blue and white with mimatched china and flowers will be pretty and plenty of color.

I would also rethink the silver chargers. They are really not necessary. Metallic chargers with mismatched china at a barn wedding.might be overkill. We don’t need to incude everything we love. If you must have chargers, I would consider white or wood. Dollar Tree has them now. I haven’t seen the faux wood ones in person yet.

I think it’s possible that you could end up spending more money trying to tone down something you don’t even like than just starting from scratch. Is the person who gifted them going to be at your wedding? Do you feel like you have to use them?

I think the teal would be lovely for a bird theme, with white and peach/coral perhaps. Chair sashes aren’t a necessity. Tone the bright teal and peach/coral down with white and taupe?


Emphasis on bluebirds? 🙂
