Barbie The Pearl Princess Party | The TomKat Studio

We are so excited to share this Barbie pool party we recently styled for Toys “R” USThis party was inspired by the new movie, Barbie™ The Pearl Princess Blu-ray & DVD (Pre-order Now! Available 3/11). Be sure to enter to WIN a copy of the DVD and a Lumina doll at the end of this post! We’re giving away 10 sets!

Barbie™ stars as Lumina™, a mermaid who dreams of being a princess.  As long as she can remember, she’s had a magical power that makes pearls dance and glow! Lumina™, and her best friend Kuda, a pink seahorse, embark on an adventure to a majestic mer-kingdom. There, she uses her powers to help her friends prepare for the Royal Ball. Lumina™ then discovers that her magical pearls are the key to unlocking her true destiny and ultimately saving the kingdom.

Barbie™ The Pearl Princess takes place entirely underwater, so what better idea than to host the celebration outdoors for a pool party! Little girls will love this pink, purple and aqua color palette inspired by the colors used most throughout the movie. We designed a collection of free printable Barbie™ The Pearl Princess party designs, including an invitation, cupcake toppers, favor tags, food labels and a happy birthday banner for you to download! You can even add your own text before printing. Sweet treats like clam shell and starfish cookies, embellished cupcakes, white chocolate popcorn and punch are perfect ideas for this poolside birthday party.

Barbie The Pearl Princess Party Boxed Lunches | The TomKat Studio

A great idea for this poolside party is to prepare boxed lunches before the event starts. Add ribbon and customized name tags to the lunch boxes for each party guest. The girls will love seeing their names on the boxes!

The girls will love to play with the new dolls from Barbie™ The Pearl Princess during the party! Lumina™ and her mermaid friends are adorable.

Just like the characters in the movie, the guests can get dolled up during the party. Easily make these pearl strand clips before the party by stringing on wire and attaching to a hair clip.

Speaking of dolled up, have an adult do the girls’ nails using this adorable Barbie Nail Art Kit at the party. (available at Toys “R” Us stores)

Girls love to play dress-up, so have them take turns trying on Lumina’s Pearl Princess Dress. So darling! (available at Toys “R” Us stores)

To keep the girls busy, set up a bracelet making station. Set out bowls of various colors of “pearls” and help them string on to ribbon or twine. The bracelets make a cute keepsake that they can wear out and about.

    Why love Barbie? It makes you, imaginative by role playing, lets you pretend to be anyone you want and when you walk away your still a child. You can dress up like her, dress her up, she’s all colors and careers, Barbie is all around the one toy everyone can play with (including boys ;)!) ps. She’s the one gift you know by the wrapping your getting that makes you excited you’ve been given it!

    I just love to share all the new Barbie fun with my daughter – it gives me an excuse to be a kid again and play just like when I was her age! I love seeing her use her imagination and extend the idea that Barbie can always be anyone she wants to be!

    I love Barbie…always have always will! Despite all thera critcism she has received over the years especially regarding her appearance she perserveres and has withstood the test of time!! My 3 year old is just beginning to get into Barbie and I would love to surprise her with this! She currently plays with my Barbies from the 90s and I have some very very old Barbie and Ken dolls my grandfather found in a Barbie case years and years ago in an old abandoned house…one is the original pull string Ken doll and they are a cherished item of mine that I cant wait to pass on one day!

    I love Barbie because she embodies the brilliance of womanhood. Barbie was my mom’s favorite toy. She grew up to be a teacher. She’s my fave, and I grew up to be a writer. She’s my daughter’s favorite, and she wants to work with animals in some capacity. Three different generations with three different interests all love Barbie 🙂 Pretty amazing!

  184. Marie

    March 13th, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    We love Barbie because she is just one girl but has the ability to be whomever she wants and make a big difference. When reading or watching Barbie my daughters get exposed to community members like seeing eye dog trainers, traditional stories like The Princess and the Pauper along with music from several ballets, and Barbie also models qualities of what it means to be a great sister.
    We initially got into the Barbie movies because of Barbie and the pink slippers. This was the theme for my 5 year old’s birthday and she adores her Barbie bedding.
    The best part of Barbie in our home, for me, is the connection my girls have by sharing Barbie with a 15 year old girl I mentor. This teen has decided it is time to pass along her Barbie DVD collection and each time she visits our home she gifts us with a new Barbie movie from her collection. Now my girls can look to her as a mentor as they sing the Barbie songs together and play Barbies.
    The way Barbie has the ability to cross generations for 55 years is just awesome to me.

    September 8th, 2014 at 8:50 am

    You can print them on full sheets of label paper, then use a craft punch to punch out circles: http://shoptomkat.com/item_4/Paper-Punch–2.25-Circle.htm
    …or just print on regular paper and attach using double-sided tape: http://shoptomkat.com/item_1508/Dot-Glue-Runner–Tape-Roller.htm
