Although you can likely find Barbie birthday party items at your local party store, making them yourself allows you to add a personal touch to make your child's extra special. Cover tables with a pink or pastel tablecloth. You can embellish the tablecloth by using rhinestones, stickers and doll clothes.
You can print out images of Barbie clothing, accessories, or a dollhouses. Write each child's name on each card using colorful or glitter pens. You could also use a photo of your princess holding her favorite Barbie doll for each place card.
Dainty finger foods are perfect for Barbie girls. Try heart-shaped sandwiches using a cookie cutter or mini hot dogs. Be sure to keep chips on hand. Pink lemonade and strawberry smoothies also make wonderful treats for divas.
Centerpieces can include simple vases filled with pink flowers and tied with ribbon or even pink and purple balloons anchored with Barbie dolls.
For fun, younger Barbie babes can color printed Barbie images. Older girls will have a blast with a glam makeover. Since Barbie is always changing her image, girls can play dress-up using a trunk filled with vintage clothes or old costumes. Include fun necklaces, bracelets and hats. Allow the girls to model their looks in front of the camera-flashing paparazzi.
Party favors can include candy, miniature nail polish, and hair bows. Allow the girls to make their own Barbie magnets by cutting out Barbie images and having them glue the images to magnetic strips. Add glitz with glitter and gems.
