Barbie Birthday Party

Last weekend I threw a Barbie birthday party for my 6 year old. It was a simple party but so much fun! I actually did the same party for my older daughter 3 years ago so this time it was just a repeat. So that made it super easy!

 We served cupcakes, fresh fruit, and Nail Polish Bites.

The Nail Polish Bites were definitely a favorite of all the girls. They were super easy. It was just marshmallows dipped in colored chocolate with a tootsie roll on top. 

The girls were all turned into Barbies by getting their hair and nails done. 

Then I took a picture of each of them in the Barbie box. The Barbie box was pretty easy to make but a little time consuming. That's why I saved it and used it 3 years later! 

To make the box, I used a large box (the box our tv came in) and cut out a hole in the center. I wrapped it with pink wrapping paper and used black & white polka dotted wrapping paper for the inside background. I printed some Barbie logos that I found online and glued them to the box. Super simple! I'm kind of craft challenged so if I can make this anyone can!

While the girls were waiting to get their hair and nails done, they either played outside (I'm so glad the weather was nice) or they colored Barbie pictures. I just googled Barbie coloring sheets and I found a ton of pictures for them to color.

It was such a fun, simple party. The girls had a blast!

Nail Polish Bites

This weekend I threw a Barbie birthday party for my 6 year old. They girls got their hair and nails done and then I took a picture of each of them in a life size Barbie box. It was so much fun! I made nail polish bites for one of their treats. They turned out so cute. Don't they look like real bottles of nail polish? They were so easy to make and I thought they turned out adorable!

Printable Recipe

Nail Polish Bites
1 bag of large marshmallows
colored white chocolate (I used Wilton Candy Melts)
tootsie rolls

Melt colored white chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals until melted, stirring in between. Using two forks, dip each marshmallow into the white chocolate until fully coated, letting the excess chocolate drip off. Place on parchment paper. Immediately set a tootsie roll on the top of the marshmallow. Let set completely.
