Description

For this party, I wanted the dessert table to help capture the children's imagination just a Barbie does. So, I tried to design it as though it was actually a place in Barbie's house.  

I found the perfect black and white striped fabric, for the background, which called back to Barbie's original bathing suit. And then I chose a dressing table to display the sweets and used it as inspiration for many of the other elements. First I found the most beautiful corset cookies and chose to stand them up like a wardrobe of gorgeous Barbie dresses and displayed them in and around a jewelry box. I had the cake pops standing up in a make up bag like beautiful lip glosses. And I created a silhouette, inspired by the classic vintage Barbie silhouette, and used it as one of the icons for the party as I designed the paper goods.  To create the "floral" centerpiece for the dressing table, I was lucky enough to find the perfect marshmallow roller pops .  The favor table was laden with fabulous accessories which I was able to find in the Target dollars bins... pearl necklaces, bracelets, flower headbands, gloves and even little purses to hold all the goodies! 

 

Design Inspiration

When I was first asked to style a vintage Barbie inspired boutique birthday party for a beautiful little girl named Sophia and a few of her special friends, I tried to think about what makes Barbie so special to little girls and I realized that it is that wonderful element of make believe. You can pretend that you really are Barbie and be transported to a world full of fun adventures and fabulous fashion! I wanted the dessert table to help capture the children's imagination just a Barbie does. So, I tried to design it as though it was actually a place in Barbie's house.
