Throw a Dream Barbie Party
Noticed an influx of eye-popping pink and all things sparkly and neon recently? That’s because Barbiecore is having a moment right now. Ever since images of Margot Robbie playing the plastic fantastic character for 2023’s Barbie movie were released, hot pink-mania has been in full swing. And thanks to its unmistakable vibrancy and joyful nostalgia, it’s a theme that lends itself particularly well to parties for all ages.
So whether you’ve caught Barbie fever too, or you have a little one obsessed with the toy doll, why not embrace this fabulously fun theme for your next celebration?
First things first: you’re going to need pink – a lot of it
To create your Barbie Dreamhouse, you’ll this eye-popping shade everywhere you look – from your table and chairs to empty walls. Think showstopping balloon arches and fringed backdrops to fill bare walls, ribbons to decorate chairs, bunting to drape along fences and balloon bunches to scatter around your space. The more the better here, so don’t be afraid to go to town with the decorations.
Customise your Dreamhouse
Just in case a room full of pink isn’t obvious enough, hang up personalised banners and balloons with slogans such as “Welcome to Barbie’s Dreamhouse”, “C’mon Barbie, Let’s Go Party!” and “Hey Barbie, Wanna Go For A Ride?”.
Think pink for your food
Being Barbie makes for hungry work, so make sure you stock up on yummy foods for yourself and your guests. Of course, all things pink would make an eye-catching, on-theme spread, so think raspberries, strawberries, iced cupcakes, marshmallows and pink-glazed doughnuts.
Consider your tableware
It’ll be the Ken to your Barbie when it comes to adding all those finishing touches to the party. Pink cups, plates and napkins will really go the extra mile – as will this table cover and treat stand.
