The ultimate Barbie party ideas guide

Barbie themed personalised custom invitations

A Barbie party isn’t complete without friends so you need to gather them. Why not use bright pink cardstock die-cut dress shapes to make the invitations? Or better still, you can use a picture of your child with her favourite Barbie doll. Or, order a digital invitation from your favourite supplier.

IDEA! It’s a little dearer, but why not hand out a Barbie with a tag attached as an invite? Basic Barbie models cost $5. Or better yet, upcycle those naked Barbies strewn all over the house!

Nailing the Barbie party outfit

Let your cute princess rock her confidence with a special Barbie birthday outfit. If Barbie is anything, she is on-trend! Phedonix Denim Art can create a funky custom denim jacket for your loved one to match any party theme! Add a tutu and matching pink headband and she’s ready to rock her party!

Barbie party decorations

The party needs to be decorated based on Barbie’s world. This means bursting colours of bright pink and lavender. Here are some specific tips:

  • Install a personalised banner to the home entrance that reads ‘Welcome to Barbie’s Dream House”.
  • Use lots of balloons and streamers for the decoration
  • Tie pink ribbons around vases and items.
  • Place Barbie dolls, chairs, and other accessories around the party area. 
  • Have a table cover, centrepiece, and swirl decorations. 

Don’t forget to add an epic hot pink jumping castle from Bouceorama!

Classic Barbie party cake ideas

Well, what would a Barbie birthday party be without a classic Barbie cake? Grab your child’s favourite Barbie and build a cake around her skirt with buttercream. Or, get something in pink or purple, topped with a Barbie silhouette cake topper.

Host a Fashion Show!

Barbie is fashionable! Why not host a fashion where your girl and her friends can catwalk, take some pictures, and strut their confidence in style, with giant sunglasses, head boppers, beads, and bow clips. Not only will you get adorable pics but you’ll get the girls thinking they’re in a real fashion contest. 

Capture The Moments

It’s time for each lady to show off her confidence in cheek and fearless fun. Have the girls take pictures together. Thereafter, siblings, dad, and mum can join in the fun! The pictures will create precious memories your angel will cherish for years to come. 

Hire a Barbie Photo Booth to complete the look!
