Barbie birthday party

My oldest daughter is going to be 5 on June 6th and I am starting to plan her birthday. She really wants a Barbie birthday and I am planning on having it outdoors. I need some help on what to do for it. I already know what I am doing for the cake but I need some party help. I wanted to make the invitations so wording would help, games ideas and decoartion help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • has printable invitations. google barbie birthday party invitations and see what you like there is a ton of stuff out there! check ebay for invitations too, there are some personalized ones, you could order, or copy and do yourself.
    for an outdoor party a pinata could be fun, you could check oriental trading for pinata stuffers that is not all candy, or you could stuff with candy, that is cheaper : )
    decorations for outside cant be much more than streamers and balloon, i don't think.
    we are going to try tie dying t shirts for my son's 5th bday party tomorrow. a bunch of pink tie dyed t shirts could be cute and fun.
    for an easy craft project you could decorate foam tiaras with glitter glue and foam stickers.
    games could include a scavenger hunt, pin the purse on the barbie wrist, 3 legged race... could be a fun place to start t987oo!

  • We cheated and went bowling, but I made the cake.. there is a picture of it on my page if you want to take a look at it. I'm a former Pastry Chef, so yes.. I made the cake. It is all cake with marshmallow fondant except for the doll..
