Faux Grass Table Runner - 🔥🔥HOT ITEM!!🔥🔥
Barbie Balloon Garland
Instagram aesthetic, here we come! We created this epic Barbie balloon garland using our custom balloon garland kit here at Pretty Day! This balloon garland kit is completely DIY - which also means its affordable! You can choose whichever balloon colors you would like, but for our barbie party I went with three shades of pink - Fuchsia, Medium Pink & Light Pink. This garland would look super cute with chrome silver balloons, and white as well!
But don't stop there! We are going for an over the top, in your face barbie look so accessories are a MUST. Grab some fun coordinating foil balloons like this huge roller skate balloon! Your girl barbie, LOVES to roller skate! And don't forget the iconic Barbie logo balloons!
Barbie Party Supplies
Let's get into the decorations for our Barbie aesthetic party! The key to creating the perfect Barbie aesthetic is to go all out with pink, pink, and more pink! For our Barbie centerpiece, we had to display Barbie herself! We grabbed a cute barbie car and popped in on a cake stand for some height. We have an entire collection of acrylic cake stands here.
From there we added some of my personal favorite party decoration of all time, paper honeycombs! I love these fun decorations for a few reasons. These are made from cardboard and paper, and can be recycled so you don't need to stress about your environmental footprint while using them, they're a big and substantial decoration AND they are completely reusable if you close them with a paper clip! For Barbie birthday party decorations we went with three shades of pink and some fun mirror balls.
Barbie Party Food Ideas
I always like to keep it simple when planning food for a birthday party. Party guests are usually too excited to be focusing on the food, but I decided to stick with reds and pinks for our Barbie party food. I grabbed this cute pink popcorn from the grocery store, and popped it in these adorable mini food cups. I also adorned simple rice krispie squares with sprinkles & created these cute DIY barbie fruit skewers!
Barbie Birthday Cake
Easy mom hack!🚨🚨 For kids birthday parties I always head to my local grocery store, and grab the most simple cake I can! Sometimes they have small add-on's that are easy to remove (sprinkles, icing rosettes etc.). From there just top your cake with some cute barbie cake toppers, pretty candles and maybe even a barbie herself!
We popped these store bought cupcakes into our mini food cups too!
Barbie Party Theme Table Setting
I am SO happy with how this adorable barbie party theme table setting turned out! I started with layering a faux grass table runner over one of our eco friendly table covers.
I chose these iridescent silver dinner plates & our super popular pink checkered dessert plates! I used our pastel pink scalloped napkins and wrapped up some wooden cutlery, and then popped a hot pink napkin in our silver tumblers! I love how the entire barbie party table turned out!
Barbie Party Activities
Ok, here is the part I'm excited about. I had the most fun planning these barbie themed activities.
I set up a Barbie beauty station where guests could get pampered just like their favorite doll!
You can also include variety of colorful nail polishes, glittery body lotions, and temporary tattoos for the guests to choose from! Use your balloon garland as a backdrop for your barbie photo booth, so that guests can capture their glamorous transformations.
I also wanted some fun personalized accessories, that can double as a party favor so I went with these totally Barbie worthy visors! I grabbed some cute beads, and let the kids go to town creating a fun personalised visor.
Barbie Party Favors
I LOVE using these adorable Sun Jellies for party favors for basically all party themes, but they definitely hit the mark for our Barbie theme party! I grabbed these cute mini bags in light pink & hot pink.
