We did this gorgeous BARBIE party for a lovely little girl a little while back. Mom was SUUUUUUUUPER pregnant -- ready to pop any second and wanted us to handle it all for her... which we did... beautifully, I think! We always go for the bolder/ modern choices at the COOP -- and Barbie was no exception. Instead of the cheesy Barbie themed plates and images -- we stuck with the cute ponytailed Barbie silhouette. We used the silhouette on the birthday banner, the flower vases, the goodie bags, the plates, the napkin holder... you name it. Wherever we saw an opportunity to make a cute Barbie statement -- we did! We also made the two centerpieces with the same silhouette. I made the vases with some gorgeous sparkle tulle wrapped around vases -- then hot glued gold poms along the top for some extra pizzaz!! I love how they turned out. Our amazing Julie from Blue Cupcake did the Barbie Cake... so old school (I am pretty sure I had the ice cream cake version of this cake from age 4 to at least age 9!!) Old school made super fab by Julie!!! She took the old concept of the barbie in the cake skirt and took it to a whole new level with the gorgeous gems. She's an artist, for sure. All the Barbie girls got Tutus, a load of pearl necklaces and super cool ray ban style shades adorned with pearls. So girlie-glam!!! Photos are all curtsey of the fantastic Bebe Jacobs... she's simply wonderful! Hope you enjoy!!!
