We are so excited to share this Barbie™ pool party we recently styled for Toys “R” US! This 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.
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.
Another fun activity is this Barbie™ Tapeffiti Headband Kit. Washi tape is so popular right now for crafty and this kit comes with everything you need to make seven headbands!
So much fun!
If you time the party right, you can also set up a showing of the Barbie™: The Pearl Princess movie in the backyard, once it gets dark!
Barbie™ Pearl Princess Coloring Books and Step into Reading Books are perfect party favors! Tie with ribbon and add a printable “thank you” tag!
