Pick a Barbie Theme for Your Barbie Movie Party

So of course the theme for your party is the Barbie movie, yet within the Barbie movie there are a few possible themes that you can explore to make your party even more fun and unique.  You can choose one or a few of these Barbie party themes and make your Barbie party just like you, unique!  Here are some of my favorites Barbie Movie Party themes, or should we call them subthemes?

Barbie Movie Afterparty

Going to the movie theater to watch the Barbie movie? Why not throw a Barbie movie afterparty? Celebrate everything pink and continue the conversation about how to dismantle the patriarchy at home with a Barbie movie afterparty. Pink cocktails and mocktails and pink desserts are of course a must as is pink attire and a Barbie box photo booth

A lot of party planning companies are offering the Barbie box photo booths so look around your area for one that rents them out. You can also use this YouTube tutorial to make your own Barbie box photo booth at home

Start off by printing these cute Barbie movie ticket invites to invite all your friends to watch the Barbie movie with you. 

Barbie Movie Afterparty Decor Ideas

An afterparty is all about the glamour and strutting your stuff wearing your best Barbicore glamorous styles.  You can recreate the movie opening night with this shimmering pink carpet and a Barbie photo backdrop. When it comes to food go for glamorous bubbly pink cocktails and cocktails in stylish cocktail glasses. 

Barbie Movie Afterparty: What to Wear

Movie afterparties are all about that fabulous glam, so if you want you can pull out all the stops and dress up for this one. Decide if you want this to be a back tie event, forma, semi formal or cocktail attire and make sure to specify this on your Barbie party invitations! Walk down that pink carpet and dance the night away while wearing your favorite pink gown or pink cocktail dress and of coarse some pink high heels to match. 

Barbie Movie Night Party!

Once the movie is released for streaming and on DVD you can plan a Barbie Movie watch party at home.  Although you may have to wait a few months until the Barbie (2023) movie is released on HBO you can pre-order the Barbie Movie DVD, which is also still pending a release date. But if you know you want to watch or rewatch the Barbie Movie with your friends and turn your Barbie Movie night into a pink celebration go ahead and preorder it now so you’re one of the first ones to get it!

Barbie Movie Night Party Decor Ideas

Get your party into that Barbie mood with some pink decorations like Barbie themed balloons or even a Barbie movie poster you can print online to give it that fun Barbie Movie night vibe. 

Barbie Movie Night Party: What to Wear

For a Barbie movie night party at home you probably want to wear clothes that are more comfortable than the glam outfits you would wear for the afterparty or dance party Barbie themes. Barbie’s iconic gingham pink dress could be a great option and to give this Barbie movie look it’s final touch check out this white flower necklace and matching white flower earrings and this pink gingham hair bow!

Barbie dance party

There’s a dance party every evening in Barbieland, and what could be better for your Barbie movie party than dancing! Make a playlist with music from the movie sound track. Or better yet choose some empowering women songs like that bring all of that feminist Barbie energy to your party. Some of my favorites include “Firework” from Katie Perry, Survivor by and “Stronger” by Brittany Spears. Glamour magazine has a great list of awesome women empowerment songs you can check out.

Barbie slumber party

In Barbiland, we live life in the pink lane, where every day is the best day and every night calls for a fabulous girls’ night. What could be more fun than an all girls sleepover. Surround yourself with rosy hues, from the decorations to the delightful sips and eats. An adult sleepover is the perfect throwback to those carefree childhood days that Barbie still embodies for us. It’s all about living in the moment, soaking up the joy, and making every occasion a reason to celebrate…just like our favorite fashion doll, Barbie!

Barbie pool party

What could be a better fit than a beach infused Barbie theme combined with a Barbie pool party. Little girls have been having Malibu Barbie inspired parties for ages. Bring those Malibu Barbie vibes to your party with beach decor reminiscent of the iconic pink sand beach in the Barbie  movie’s Barbieland. 

Barbie Pool Party Decor Ideas

Think tropical decor like palm trees and surfboards in pastel hues. Any tropical decor with pastel or pink colors will do for this pool party. I love this tropical themed balloon arch kit that has lots of pink and pastel hues. And of coarse don’t forget some fun toys and floats from pink inflatable dolphins and pink beach balls to fun floats like a pink Barbie speedboat float.

Barbie Pool Party: What to Wear

A Barbie pool party calls for fabulous pink swimwear. I love this one piece pink swimsuit with V neck and ruffles and this flattering bright pink bikini. Of course you will need a pink cover up. And for the guys pink trunks and pink seashell necklace and earrings just like the Kens in the movie. 

A pink gingham dress with full with pink seashell necklace and earrings is also a great outfit idea for a pool party before you jump into the pool and while you’re enjoying those Barbie cocktails!

Decorate your venue with pastel colored beach-inspired elements such as shells, beach umbrellas, and even a inflatable surfboards. Think pink beach sand, little pink umbrellas on your cocktails or mocktails and pastel colored beach attire. This will transport your guests to a sunny beachside getaway while still keeping the Barbie magic alive.

Ken’s Mojo Dojo Casa House Theme

Embrace that mojo dojo vibe mashing together some cowboy equestrian theme with Lazy-boys, mini beer fridges and a tacky vibe.

Start by welcoming your guests with this Mojo Dojo Casa House door mat, so cute! Add some equestrian and cowboy vibes to your Barbie party to accomplish that Mojo Dojo Casa House vibe. Think inflatable horses and don’t forget to throw in some hobby horses on a stick to make things more playful and fun! You can even have a hobby horse race with funny gag prices for the winners.

Jump on that cowboy and cowgirl Barbiecore trend. There’s already lots of copycat pink Barbie cowgirl outfits  as well as Ken’s black cowboy fringe shirt and black slacks. Make sure to finish off your look with a white cowboy hat for the Barbies and a black cowboy hat for the Kens.
