pink barbie party [a 5th birthday party]

Thursday, April 7, 2011

talented blogger and chic mom lisa {of hamptontoes} knows how to throw a fabulous party and for her daughter's 5th birthday, she coordinated a glamorous pink barbie party that's uber fun and stylish. i still can't get over the fact that lisa did most of the party details sourcing and crafting AND baking the cakes too! wow! 

with lyndhurst castle as the venue, it was definitely a one-of-a-kind dream party for her daughter. the guests get to tour the castle and even walk on the red carpet! 

the girls get to play "pin the sunglasses on barbie" and also busy themselves with barbie crafts, books and stickers. there were different activity areas which is great for a bigger number of guests so they don't get overwhelmed over one project and neglect the rest!

the beautiful set-up with pink boas, barbie silhouette, barbie tablecloths, elegant bamboo chairs and coordinating barbie silhouette papergoods! 

lisa kept her party tradition of individual cakes for each guest and i am blown away by her baking skills as she made each girl their very own barbie cake complete with dainty ornate pink dresses! 

i think my favorite part of the party would have to be the photo session for each girl inside the lifesize barbie box! made out of cardboard and wrapped with pink paper ~ this is such a great idea! 

lastly, this is the birthday girl's barbie cake ~ check out the details in her dress! so beautiful! 

to get all the complete vendor details and information on this party (and more behind the scenes photos) head on to lisa's blog, hamptontoes

thanks lisa for allowing me to share ~ you did an amazing job!
