Color Correspondences

Different colors provide different energies and help set different moods. Food is colorful and you can use these colors to your advantage, provided the color correspondence doesn't conflict with the other natural energies of the food. Color correspondence comes secondary to the other established magical properties of food. It is best to enhance the magical energies of your meal through your choice of colors associated with its presentation. Do this through the careful selection of the colors associated with garnish, the flowers in your centerpiece, the dishes you serve the meal upon, your tablecloth and, of course, the candles you light at the start of your meal.
