It's quite interesting to note how many expressions there are with suitable colors....

 

"You can argue with her until you're blue in the face, but once she's made up her mind she won't listen to you, no matter what you say."

 

"Although we got a lot of nice weddings presents, we also got one or two white elephants."

 

"Next Friday is a red-letter day for my sister and her husband; it's their 25th wedding anniversary."

 

"She went white as a sheet when she heard about the accident."

 

"If there was a war, I don't think I'd fight. I've got too much of a yellow streak. I'd be terrified of getting killed."  

 

"Ever since Tom got that huge order with Saudi Arabia he's been the boss's blue-eyed boy."

 

"I was green with envy when my neighbor drove up in a brand-new Jaguar."

 

"By the way, my husband was tickled pink at your asking him to judge the flower show."

 

"Sometimes it is better to tell a white lie than to hurt someone's feelings."

 

...and the list goes on and on....
