Barbie Toddler Birthday Party

When your little girl tells you she wants a Barbie birthday party, your heart skips a beat, and you relive your childhood like it is your J-O-B. haha. But in all seriousness, you can probably tell by now that I find such joy in throwing parties for those I love. Whether it is a baby shower, a birthday party, or a dinner party, those little details you find on Etsy or the colorful confetti just makes me all the more happy.

This past weekend we celebrated Maxi’s third birthday. We had 12 little girlfriends over to get manicures, bead bracelets, and decorate cookies. My sister and her friends were amazing and help me set up stations so they could paint the girls’ nails, help them ice Barbie shoe cookies, and string beads.

We had a “brunch” party because I never know what time to schedule something with their naps these days, but morning always feels like a safe time. haha. The other reason I love a brunch party is because of how easy the food is! We did donuts, fruit, Chicken Minis from Chick-Fil-A, mini pancakes, and fruit. You could also add in the little quiches from Costco or Sam’s, but this was plenty for the girls and their mamas.

Most of the decor items were from Etsy, so I’ll link everything I can below!

    Okay, so I say this knowing that you would love and obsess over Maxi no matter what her interests were…. but how fun is it to have a daughter who’s into fun and girly things like you are?! Well done on the party, mama.

    I LOVE Barbie stuff and love the new Barbie series on Netflix that my 9 year old daughter got me hooked on. Have you guys seen the Barbie apparel that was just released by Forever 21? I sorta kinda want a handful of those pieces. Barbie brings out the little girl in all of us! 🙂 Loved this themed party post.
