We are so excited to officially announce our newest brand partner, Barbie™! We recently styled this Barbie™ themed party for Walmart in celebration of Barbie’s upcoming birthday on March 9th! This party theme classic Barbie™ style with a focus on beauty, fashion and fun!
Using the free printable party designs (links at the end of post) we created, along with Barbie™ products from Walmart, you can create the ultimate Barbie birthday party on any budget! The printable collection includes invitation designs, cupcake toppers, favor tags and more! The best part? The invitation and label designs are even customizable so that you can add your own text before printing.
A Barbie™ doll cake is so perfect for this birthday party! It’s pretty easy to create with a few basic baking tools and a gorgeous Barbie™ doll.
Giant balloons are perfect party decor for this Barbie™ themed party! Add satin ribbon bows for an extra special touch.
The best part of a birthday party? Cake and ice cream, of course! A great idea is to pre-scoop ice cream before the party begins so you can serve it quickly with cake when the time comes! Dress up ice cream bowls with cute pink paper bows for an extra special touch.
Decorated cookies are another perfect treat to serve at your Barbie™ party! Bows and dresses continue the fashion theme.
Don’t forget a coordinating beverage for your party guests! Pink lemonade is the perfect choice.
A fun activity for the party is a fashion show! The girls can get their hair and make-up done, all while getting one of their own Barbies™ ready too! This Barbie™ Printastic Hair Doll, is so much fun for the girls to play with.
Another fun activity is for the girls to create clothing for their dolls to wear for the fashion show, with the Barbie™Iron On Style Doll. This set comes with multiple fashions and decal sheets along with a no-heat “iron,” and a dress form to iron on.
Once the girls and their Barbie™ dolls are dressed and ready, it’s time for the fashion show! Create a catwalk by lining up chairs, turn up the music and have the girls take turns walking down the aisle!
Have the girls pose for photos after the fashion show and send a copy out with the thank you cards!
You can bet that the birthday girl will receive some fabulous Barbie™ gifts! This Barbie™ Potty Training Taffy was a hit at our party!
The Barbie™ Shoe & Purse Accessory Set is perfect to send home with the girls as a party favor! Package it together with a small makeup bag (we found these at Walmart for $3) filled with nail polish and other beauty accessories.

It turned out fabulous Kim! Beautiful job as always!
You did an amazing job incorporating Barbie’s vintage past yet keeping her modern and fresh! I’m dying to know who you worked with at Mattel on this- marketing or licensing! If marketing- they’ve come a LONG way- GO YOU! Having spent 6 years working on Mainline Barbie (all the dolls in your shoot) I can say you brought style and grace to the Barbie Party!
OMG I Love it Great Job and Congratulations on all of your Success Steps I’m watching & learning
Beautiful! Love this! Our Jordan is looking forward to her Barbie Birthday Party in April….she always says “I love Barbie….Barbie says that girls can be anything they want to be”. We are Harvard alums and fans of Barbie!
Awesome Party and for you to be offering is even Cooler
could you share the vendors/resources you used for the striped table runners and balloons?
Hi Jennifer! The balloons are available here in our shop: http://shoptomkat.com/category_36/Balloons.htm and the table runners here: http://shop.thetomkatstudio.com/collections/table-runners
Gorgeous! I loved the pink and black combination. It came out soft and elegant. Loved the giant balloons and the satin ribbons.
May I ask how did you make or where can I get the lines with circles hanging on the wall? I am hosting a party at home and it is perfect for covering my naked wall. Thanks!
Thank you, Desiree! We used this punch: http://shoptomkat.com/item_4/Paper-Punch–2.25-Circle.htm to make the circles out of cardstock and then sewed them on clear thread!
Thanks so much for your response! I will difinetely try it.
Just GORGEOUS!! Kim can you please tell me where you purchased that simple white table you used for the dessert table? It’s the perfect size and love the clean lines.
Hi Heather! It is this desk from West Elm: http://rstyle.me/n/hitkmmt7w

Did you use cardstock?
love LOVE this party. Quick question. Any idea which Barbie was used for the Barbie cake?? There are so many out there and this one in particular lends itself to a cake moreso than most than I’ve seen. Thanks!
Hi Lisa! Here she is: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=28327416&cp=2255956.3053760.10882029.33886106.3628113&parentPage=family
Thanks for sharing the party details, it’s fabulous! Please share where you got the heart shaped shades.
Disregard the question, I found them on your website. Thanks.
I want to have a Barbie themed baby shower. I love pink, and grew up with Barbie. I am hoping I can find more grown up ideas, and that I can figure out a way to make cards with an S in the middle for her name. Her name will be Sofia. Also my shower will be coed and I’m thinking about how to include Ken. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Stacey
MY DAUGHTERS CROWN BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP IN FEBRUARY AND SHE WANTS A BARBIE PARTY SHE IS GOING TO BE 10 YEARS OLD DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS, HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON
This is so darling! I bet you anything if I show this to my sassy 4 year old she is going to insist on a Barbie party! 🙂 And if that gets her off the Frozen train I will count that a WIN! 🙂
Quick question – where are the striped table runners from? I have been looking for something like that for my dining room and those are perfection!
Thanks in advance!
We offer these runners in our shop! They are sold out at the moment, but we will have more in next week! Please check the shop: http://shop.thetomkatstudio.com/products/black-white-stripe-table-runner
Hi Kim, I LOVE how you put a party together. My daughter is celebrating her 6th birthday, and I’m looking for the exact same outfit Kate is wearing. Where can I purchase it from?
You can find the pettiskirt here in our shop: http://shop.thetomkatstudio.com/products/ballerina-pink-premium-pettiskirt and we made the tank with an iron-on graphic that you can download here: http://thetomkatstudio.com/freeprintableironons/
I was wondering what did you use for centerpieces and also what color of table cloths did you use?
Because I dont see any pictures.
Love this! My daughter is turning 5 in June and wants a Barbie party! I tried to download the birthday banner but it says link not found. Is there another way to download it or can it be emailed to me? Thank you!
I was hoping you would tell me if the pink balloons are 24″ or the 36″ balloons?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We are planning a Barbie theme 5th birthday for our daughter, and I can’t thank you enough for all the party ideas as well as making all the printables available for FREE!!! You’re the BEST!!!!!
Fabulous! Great theme for a birthday party! It doesn’t look so childish and can be used as a theme for an adult! My sister would definitely love this, need to show this to her!

Hi! We are throwing a Barbie themed party for my daughter! I love everything you put together! Where did the black and white stripe table runners come from? Ive been searching and have had no luck. Thanks!

Hi, I’m trying to print this invitation for a friend. I have a shop with a commercial Canon copier, and I’m sending the PDF to print to it, but the pink is washing out and it doesn’t appear at all like it does on the screen. I’m using premium card stock that I’ve had good luck with printing full color photos, but am having trouble with this invitation. Any clues if it’s the stock or a setting might be causing the problem?
Thanks in advance!
I can not THANK YOU enough!!!! My little girl loves Barbie’s SO much and as a newly single mom on a tight budget I didn’t know how I was going to throw her a nicely decorated party like I had in the past. You are extremely generous to supply these for free and to make them so easy to change the party info on them. Thank you, Thank you!!!!
Thank you so much for your super sweet comment! I am so happy knowing that you are using these for your birthday girl!
Hi i love the idea we will be having a barbie theme birthday party for my daughter too. And I’ve been searching for the printables for the invitations and i love the template you used. However, when I click the link the printables are not showing. Is there any possible to have it back? Thank you
These Barbie invitations are editable? I can’t figure out how to edit the pdf. Can you help?
Andrea-Just position your curser over the area you wish to edit, then click. It will be highlighted then you can type in whatever you wish. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
The invitations are perfect. Thank you so much for offering these free of charge.
Hello!! Your ideas and theme are the classiest and most unique I’ve seen. I’m planning a Barbie themed party for my daughter and I’m definitely inspired by this post. One thing, the template is not up. Is there any way of adding it back up?
I emailed you the printable collection. Thanks so much for visiting the blog!
Hi!! The printable is not working 🙁 Do you think you could email me ??

Hi I am throwing a surprise party for my sister and the theme is Barbie. I love your printables but was unable to download them. Would you be willing to email them to me? Thank you so much!

Hello! I am wanting to print this for my daughters birthday, but the pink Barbie silhouette is not printing. Is it just a water mark?
