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!
classic meets modern
