Barbie inspired birthday party supplies and ideas

I don’t know too many 58 year olds who inspire 5 year old birthday parties, do you?

But with a portfolio of over 150+ careers and a killer wardrobe, it’s no surprise Barbie has and always will be an inspiration for so many young girls – so why not have a party in her honour?

But how do you choose between rock ‘n’ roll Barbie, Malibu Barbie or Mermaid Barbie?

Think like Barbie and make everything PINK of course!

I was a HUGE Barbie fan when I was little. My all-time favourite was Barbie and the Rockers, which in hindsight would have made a great party theme!

If choosing just one of Barbie’s roles is too hard though, use a Barbie silhouette and stick with PINK as your main colour mixed with with white and black which will achieve the right effect – we’ve found a few ‘accessories’ to help complete the setting from vendors listed on the Life’s Little Celebrations children’s party directory

Start off with a fun invitation to set the theme!

PINK, PINK and more PINK! Barbie could never have enough. Mix with a little black and white for a modern twist, and of course add as many accessories as you can find!

Like most icons, Barbie is instantly recognisable – so use this to your advantage and incorporate the colour and visuals from your decorations into your desserts too. I love this silhouette concept by The Sweet Cart in Perth.
