 Table arrangement 

Greens and blues
Green is for Wood and blue is for Water in the system of The Five Energies. They are cool tones and tend to reduce our appetites. You might consider using them for a light afternoon tea.

 Reds and yellows
These are colors of the Fire and Earth energies. Earth colors (yellows and browns) are perfectly harmonious with digestion. Fire (red and oranges) is the mother of Earth and stimulates appetite. They are excellent on their own or in combination.

Gold and pinks
These are warm shades, also linked to Earth and Fire energies. They have a stimulating effect and generally tend to create a happy, convivial atmosphere, though not as intense as,  for example, the red table cloths of a lively Italian cafe.

Dinner for two 
You are planning a romantic evening  for two. The accumulated instincts of centuries will probably tell you how best arrange the table, and a little Feng Shui advice may confirm this. Fire energy should be present, but not too intense. Try a table cloth in the purple spectrum. Candlelight will make a big difference, but use a single candlestick.
Other energies are present on the table - Wood (the flowers), Water (the champagne),
Earth (the plates and the table itself). Open your heart and enjoy.
