Is there a little girl who doesn't like Barbie? Well, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that for most girls, Barbie has become a big part of their young lives. Like it or not, Barbie has become more and more popular through the years that having a Barbie-inspired birthday party comes at the top of the list of most little girls.
Now, if you're looking for Barbie party supplies to dress up your little princess' dream birthday party, we have some great ideas that can help you get started. Are you ready to start exploring all the wonderful possibilities? If so, then let's get the ball rolling!
Barbie Party Planning
Throwing a birthday party can be quite a challenge. I know most parents will agree with me on this. It can basically wear you down, especially if you don't have a plan. This is basically the reason why having a well-laid plan of action ensures that half the battle is already won!
If you need any help on planning your kid's next birthday party, you may want to consider reading books published specifically for this purpose or search online to get more ideas on how you can throw the best birthday party ever for your little princess.
Planning Your Kid's Birthday Party - Start Planning Early
As recommended, it is best to start planning your kid's birthday party as early as 2 to 4 weeks before the big day. This can save you from a lot of headaches along the way. So, what things should you take care of first? Here are some of them:
- The party theme. It's great if you and your child can come up with a party theme that you both agree on. In this case, let's assume that after conferring with your little girl, the two of you decided to have a Barbie inspired party theme. Wow! You've just made an excellent choice! So, start buying or making your party decorations. Borrowing decorations can also be a good idea so you can save (and probably splurge) on other party details.
- The party place. This early, decide on where you will be holding the party. If you decide to hold it in a party place, make your reservations now! However, if you plan to do the party in your home, all you need is to clean up and organize your party decorations. Don't worry, with just a little elbow grease, you'll do just fine. :-)
- Start making your guest list. After finalizing your guest list, start sending out the birthday party invitation cards. It doesn't matter if you use ready-made party invitation cards, or make your own (especially if you are artistically inclined). If you're a busy mom who has a lot of things on her hand, you may just want to buy some pre-made invitation cards. If your little princess wants to get more involved in the preparations, you can use a suitable PC software and print your own party invitations.
- Don't forget to plan your party menu! If you're having guests of mixed ages (children with their parents), make sure that you'll have something for everyone. Plan what you'll be serving your guests and prepare your list based on your menu.
Your To Do List: A Week Before the Party
Now that you've settled on a birthday party theme, decided where to hold the party, finalized your guest list and sent invitations, planned the party menu and started your grocery shopping, what else is there to take care of? Well, honestly, there are still a lot of party details to iron out. Here's what should come next in your list:
- Take care of the birthday party supplies. If you really want your little princess to have fun, why not use Barbie-inspired tableware and decorations, too? For the tableware, you can have matching plates, cups, napkins, spoons and forks all in one-go by purchasing Barbie Party Supplies Super Party Kit.
- Let your child's guests in for some fun! Give some party favors and play some games to keep your guests entertained.
- Don't forget the birthday cake! Are you planning to order the birthday cake, or do you prefer to bake and decorate your little princess' birthday cake by yourself (or with the help of the little ones)? If you choose to do it yourself, then you need to get your supplies ready a few days before the event to avoid unnecessary stress. If you don't have time to do it or a little short of cash, you may want to prepare cake pops instead. In case you're not aware of it, cake pops are cute little cakes on a stick with shapes ranging from decorated balls to whatever you want it to be!
