Barbie Theme Party Invitations
I really lucked out this time and got the link to a gorgeous editable printable for a Barbie Party invitation. All I had to do was to download, edit and hit print on Photo paper. Tada! It’s simple yet chic!
Birthday Theme Party Decorations
We went for pink and white balloons along with a splash of black. I bought lot of customized decorations for the party from an online store. We again outsourced the balloons and chairs and by the end it was looking like Barbie land in our backyard.
Barbie Theme Party Dress
Since we had so much pink in the decor, I didn’t want Sam to wear a typical pink Barbie dress. Instead, we bought a pale grey and pink dress, which we accessorized with pink satin shoes and a flower tiara. She looked like an angel!
Barbie Birthday Party Cake
This time we had our local bakery do the cake and it was a fabulous experience. The owner of the shop took care of each and every detail and even threw in a couple of freebies like the crown, candle and the miniature barbie on the cake. Again I didn’t want a typical barbie cake with a Barbie doll in the middle and thousands of rosettes. We went for a cake which had the thinnest fondant layer ever (I am not very fond of fondant!) and the cake inside was just super delicious.
Barbie Theme Party Food
Since I had not been keeping well before the party, I didn’t want to take too much on and cook everything at home. At the cake table, we had customized water bottles, chocolates, juices and some finger food for the kids. For food, we had pizzas, rolls and sandwiches.
Barbie Theme Party Games
Since it was a Barbie theme party, we had a girls-only party. I made a parcel out of lots of different gift wrapping sheets and each layer had a small gift like a shaped eraser, a pencil or wooden photo clips etc. The centre of the parcel had a barbie stationery kit for the final winner. The kids played pass the parcel and the excitement to open each layer was to be seen to believed.
The kids also played musical chairs on Barbie movie songs and finally had a dance session on Barbie songs. I had no idea that the Barbie movie songs were so popular among kids.
We also had a pinata full of candies, erasers, hair clips, crazy balls etc and it was fun to see kids grabbing stuff but also sharing with their friends.
Finally, the kids settled down to watch Barbie movie: Princess and the Popstar on the television.
We gave out these Barbie gift sets which had a Shampoo, a shower gel and a lotion. There was also a Barbie notebook of which I can’t seem to find a picture.
