your friends to celebrate your birthday with Barbie.
The key to pulling off a
coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair.
Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as
specific as a special character, it should be the subtle thread
that ties everything together. Your location, invitations,
flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one
common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

Place small clay pots on the
table and fill with
pink carnations. You can also write
the name of each guest on the pot and they
can serve as place cards as well. Allow some
dress-up beads to drape over
the side of each pot.
Create a round floral
centerpiece. Start by cutting a piece off the bottom of
the Styrofoam ball so that it will seat flat. Then cut pink
artificial carnation stems to about 2" with wire cutters and
inserting into the Styrofoam ball until covered. Takes
about 30 - 48 carnations. You can also make these pomander balls
to hang from stairway rails, tree branches or anywhere that you
want to hang them. To make the hanging ball start by using a
long piece of floral wire, bend the wire to form a long hairpin
shape. Push the long hairpin through the center of the ball. On
the side of the ball where the hairpin is closed insert a wood
pick between the ball and the wire (keeps the wire from pulling
out of the ball). On the other end twist the wire to secure and
attach your ribbon to form a hanger. Then insert your flowers.

is the perfect birthday gift for a dream girl, and it can be
used throughout the party. No fashion show would be
complete without special effects.
After each guest has
selected an outfit befitting a Barbie Girl, apply dramatic
makeup, style hair, and paint nails (
Kids Nail Polish ), and lots of
jewelry. This is a
great place to call upon adult friends and
family for help. If you can convince them to
dress up and play a role as hairdresser,
manicurist or makeup artist, the party will
be all the more fun for the little Barbie's.
wish, you could hire a dance instructor or
high school girl to come to the party to
choreograph a dance or direct a fashion
shoot video. Invite parents to come 15
minutes prior to the end of the party, and
let the girls perform a mini fashion show
for them. Every little girl should enjoy at
least 15 minutes of fame! Have parents ask
for autographs and take lots of photos of
a Barbie coloring book and have the
birthday girl pick her favorite picture
of Barbie. Bring this picture to a
copying center and have them enlarge it
into a poster. Black and white
enlargements cost a couple of dollars.
Design your pin on part (earring,
necklace, braid, ponytail & etc.)

Want flowers on your cake? But the thought
of making a rose out of frosting terrifies you?
Easy, fresh flowers are gorgeous, but make sure
they haven't been exposed to chemicals like
pesticides or fertilizers. Of course you can
always use silk flowers, & with them you
don't have to worry about the chemicals or if
they are in season. Another idea is to purchase
an extra mylar balloon, cut out the design, add
a small amount of vegetable oil to the back of
the cut out design. Frost your cake and then
position the design on top. Remove the design
before cutting the cake.
