As a mom of 3 and 5 year old girls, I was thrilled when Mattel® recently asked me to design a “Super Style” inspired Barbie Birthday Party filled with creative DIY ideas …and so were my girls, of course! ;)
This project is part of the #TRUBestBirthday campaign, and features Barbie® toys and products that can all be found at Toys”R”Us. This was my first time designing a Barbie theme, but I’m definitely not one to shy away from a good excuse for glittery fun and DIY! So, I set out to come up with a fresh, Barbie-inspired look that felt happy and fashion-forward – incorporating bright pops of yellow and aqua with the traditional pink, black, and white Barbie colors. I just wanted it to feel like pure girlie FUN…
As always, paper designs played a huge role in the look of the party. You can download the new Colorful Barbie Birthday Collection that I designed for this party right here… and for FREE. :) And speaking of free things – make sure to enter the SWEEPSTAKES at the bottom of this post for your chance to win a Barbie Bike AND $100 Gift Card from Toys”R”Us + $100 worth of party supplies from yours truly!

Because there is LOTS of info to convey within this one post, I’m going to do my best to be SUPER organized with the ideas so that they really live up to their purpose of serving as helpful inspiration! I’m dividing this post into sections by idea and am going to let the images do a lot of the talking. I’ll keep the tips as streamlined as possible – however, please feel free to ask questions in the comments section. I will also be co-hosting a #TRUBestBirthday Twitter party this Thursday, April 23rd at 2pm EST and can answer questions then as well!
