Decorate To Celebrate Ch#42: "Anything Goes" -- Girls Night Out!! :)

**It's time again to decorate your celebrations with a Challenge at Decorate To Celebrate!!**

For Challenge #42, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for ANY THEMED PARTY!!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES, CELEBRATIONS, AND MORE (any party with any theme!!) with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!  :)

I actually have a LOT of special events coming up in the very near future, so I had a hard time deciding which celebration to share with you today (hmmm...  Imagine ME not knowing which event to share!!  I want to share them ALL!!  I guess you'll need to stay tuned if you don't want to miss any of the fun!!)...  I finally decided that I would share a little sampling of a special "Girls' Night Out" event that I'm planning for The-Girl-Child's birthday next month...  Her favorite color is RAINBOW, but if she has to choose one, then she always picks PURPLE...  So I had her choose the color combination for this year's celebration -- She chose purple (of course), a vivid pink, and a chocolate brown...  Unfortunately, I'm still relying on only a cell phone camera for my pictures, so the colors aren't quite as vivid as they should be in these pictures...    Oh well, I'm very thankful to have a camera on my phone that does a pretty decent job in a pinch :)
I recently picked up one of those EK Success flower punches because I've really wanted to try making more 3D flowers...  This was my first attempt at figuring it out...  Hmmmmmm...  I'm glad I have a little bit of experience with the Tim Holtz pinecone die cut because that was exceptionally helpful in figuring out how to give these flowers a little bit of character ;)
I used a fun, glittery ribbon that we found in the dollar bin at JoAnn's for the center of each flower -- Once I figured out the trick of bending, folding, and rolling the petals, these flowers came together pretty quickly...  I'm thinking about making a bouquet of them as the centerpiece for the celebration.  I imagine too that The-Girl-Child will want to save a few of these flowers to use on headbands or hairpins...  As long as it doesn't rain, I think they'll make fabulous hair "pretties"!!  :)
And that's the start of the birthday celebration ideas!!  I'm excited to come up with some more uses for these pretty flowers...  I'd love to hear YOUR ideas too!!  :)

Now it's YOUR turn to show us YOUR party decorations, supplies, treat bags, and more for a party of ANY THEME -- Whether you're planning a birthday, baby shower, wedding, or other special celebration, we want to see your creativity!!  Link up your NEW "ANYTHING GOES" ANY THEME PARTY project by CLICKING HERE before 11:59pm (EST) on Tuesday, January 22nd to be eligible for YOUR CHANCE to WIN one of my FAVORITE prizes -- A Mini Album from Rhonda!!  Please take a look at our Challenge Rules (HERE) before submitting your project. :)

Until next time,
