1. Barbie Party Invitations

If you’re throwing a Barbie party then let the guests know with some adorable Barbie party invitations.

We used some customizable Barbie invitations from Etsy and then printed them at home using cardstock. We then put the invitations in these envelopes and gave them out. They turned out amazing!

3. Barbie Party Box

This life-size Barbie box photobooth was most definitely a hit at my daughter’s party. I built the Barbie party box using an old TV box we had in the garage (you can also use large moving boxes).

Using a utility knife, I cut out pieces for a front, back, two sides, a top, and a bottom. Then, I taped them together with duct tape. Once I had the box completely taped together, I wrapped the box using pink wrapping paper from Party City.

If you are wondering about the dimensions of our box, I created the template below. You can download this free Barbie Party Box printable to assist you while you build your own Barbie photobooth.

*As you can see in the pictures above, it is the perfect size for kids but short for adults. If you are building the Barbie party box for an adult party I would increase the height to around 6ft. If you’re having a co-ed party it would be super cool to make a blue Ken box as well.

4. Polaroid Pictures

10. Barbie Party Backdrop

A Barbie backdrop is a great way to set the scene for a themed party. For my daughter’s Barbie party, I originally wanted this Barbie Dream Together backdrop but it was out of stock at the time so we went with this Malibu Barbie one from Party City instead.

I will note when I ordered it I didn’t realize that it came in three separate pieces. You can either tape them together to make a large backdrop or tape the pieces up separately in different areas which is what we ended up doing.

11. Barbie Karaoke

This was one of the best Barbie party ideas we had for my daughter’s birthday. She and her friends had so much fun singing (and talking) into the microphones. We just turned our karaoke machine on and had a few separate microphones for them to use. Then we put Spotify on the TV and turned on a Kidz Bop playlist with the lyrics.

13. Barbie Party Balloons

You can’t have a party without balloons! Thankfully, there are quite a few Barbie-themed balloons to choose from. We got this Barbie balloon bundle and they were a great addition to the Barbie party decor.

We also did a lot of pink and purple star and heart-shaped foil balloons. However, I didn’t have helium to fill them or time to run to Party City the night before so instead, we used our air compressor to fill them with air.

Because regular air won’t make them float, I had to think of a way to hang them up. What I ended up doing was taping up the flap that hung down on the balloon with Scotch Tape.

Next, I rolled some blue painter’s tape and put it on the back of the balloon. Then, I stuck it to the wall.

Using the painter’s tape made it so the balloons didn’t peel up any of our paint when we took them down and it actually held up all the balloons really well.

This was such a super simple way to hang the balloons I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of this before. Going forward I will be hanging balloons for parties this easier and cheaper way.

14. Barbie Tablecloth
