I was that girl with the Barbie™ mansion, pizza shop, post office, supermarket, boutique, classroom — I mean, should I really continue? I was the mayor of Barbieville™. So, when I found out that party stylist and HGTV contributor Kim Stoegbauer of The TomKat Studio partnered with Barbie™ in celebration of the iconic doll’s upcoming birthday, I immediately took a turn down Memory Lane.

To kick off Barbie’s™ month-long birthday celebration (starting March 9!), Kim styled this glamorous girls’ birthday party. Read on for Kim’s ideas and party inspiration.

Barbie Birthday Party

Following Barbie’s™ classic style, Kim chose a black, white and pink color palette.

Oversized balloons, ribbons, striped table runners and cupcake stands keep the table chic and stylish but simple to re-create.

Barbie Birthday Cake

Kim modeled this stunning modern-day Barbie™ cake after one her mother made for her fourth birthday. (According to Kim, all you need to make this cake is a Barbie™ doll and a few simple baking tools.)

Cookies shaped like bows and dresses continue the fashion theme. They actually might be too pretty to eat.

You can’t have a birthday party without ice cream! Kim says: “Pre-scoop ice cream before the party begins so you can serve it quickly with cake when the time comes.”

Dress up yummy cupcakes with Kim’s free printable designs. Then, give kids something to sip on, like pink lemonade, to coordinate with the palette.

A fun activity for party guests is a fashion show. The girls can get their hair and makeup done while styling their Barbies™, too.

Once everyone’s styled and ready, it’s time to strut the catwalk. Line up chairs, turn up the music and let each partygoer take turns showcasing their style. Kim suggests: “Have the guests pose for photos after the fashion show and send a copy out with the thank you cards.”
