If you've been following my facebook page this week, (which, by the way, you should NOT be missing) you would know that somehow the theme of the week became 'fabulous fuchsia'. It started with a divine and refined look featuring a fuchsia pencil skirt and then a pretty dress worn by Ginnifer Goodwin at the People's Choice Awards this past Wednesday night. I was so enamored with the color, especially seeming so refreshing in the midst of the greyness of midwinter, that I decided to make it the theme of today's Friday Food and Favorites post. 

So let's begin with...

Yeah, I'm kind of cheating here, which is what I like to do when it comes to food anyway. I like doing 'easy and pretty' when it comes to the kitchen. So basically you can use any chocolate cupcake recipe (Duncan Hines works), and the key is to get fabulous cupcake holders and tint your icing as hot pink-fuchsia as you can get it. Come know they taste so much better when they look so fabulous!
With so many people afraid to use color in their lives, let me show you some favorites I found using fuchsia...maybe you'll dare to try some of these ideas.
Favorite Fuchsia Decorating Ideas:
Add bright color to your space with bold pillows. Use colors near each other on the color wheel or...
use complimentary colors across the color wheel. This combo of fuchsia, turquoise and yellow is my favorite.

Favorite Fuchsia Party/Tabletop Ideas:
Fuchsia especially looks great with black and white. Try using orchids, roses and peonies for great color from nature.

Favorite Fuchsia Fashion Ideas:
Combine fuchsia with another bold color and tone it down with a jacket or belt or wear it simply on its own.

Some of my favorite fuchsia finds:

Mango Fuchsia Obi Belt
Rebecca Minkoff iPad Case
Calvin Klein Flat
Diva Mousepad

How do you feel about Fuchsia?

Here’s to a beautiful weekend!
