As a matter of fact, for my daughter’s 3rd birthday, she wanted to have a party based on one of the Barbie princess movies. When you think about it, you can adapt lots of games and activities for any of the Barbie princess movies.
For invitations, I bought the official invitations and partyware that went with the movie.
Look over our kids party games list and adapt a game to your movie. Try selecting one game from each category. Pin the tail on the donkey could become pin the crown on the princess. A bean bag toss could be tossing food into a dragon's mouth. We actually followed the story of the movie at our Barbie party, doing a game that would reflect different parts of the story.
Because everyone might not be familiar the movie, do a puppet show giving an overview of the story.
Cake ideas are easy - a Barbie cake or something from the theme of the movie. The movie we loved was Barbie Princess and the Pauper DVD, so my daughter wanted a cake to look like a cat, which was one of the main characters in the movie.
Favor ideas can be plentiful, anything Barbie or fairy/mermaid/princess (depending on if your Barbie movie is a princess one or a fairy/mermaid one).
Barbie Theme Party Invitations, Decorations, Favors and Games
The type of party (fairy, princess,tea party, spa, fashion doll...) will determine what you use for invitations, decorations, favors and even what kid party games you will play.
You can also go with a flower theme or anything girl related and that will work with Barbie too. The possibilities are endless!
No matter what type of party you decide to do, a Barbie Cake is always perfect!
