Girls Parties: Barbie Fashionista Party

Barbie Fashionista Party

The Invitation
Fashion has always been big in my house! My girls love to dress their Barbies as fashion superstars so it was only fitting to have a fashionista party! I created the invite using some pink striped  background, some black damasks and some fashion clip art.

The Table Setting
I am a big fan of using fabric as my tablecloths instead of plastic – it just looks classier. For this party I went with a dark pink satin fabric. I accented it with black square plates topped with black and white damask plates I found at the local party store. I went with these cute frames I found in the dollar section of a local store for their names. Some cute water labels made the water bottles pop! The setting was completed with a little menu.

Individual Setting

I purchased a trifold board and added fashion magazine logos all over it and the girls got to take pictures in front of it with their Shirley Temples! They also got to walk the runway, paint their nails and design a dress! I made simple, plain white doll dresses and supplied all sorts of things to design a one-of-a-kind dress - it was a blast!

The Favors
For the favors I set up a fashion store with some make-up, lip gloss, candy etc. and gave them a small shopping bag, and they were allowed to  go shopping - this was a hit!
