real parties: vintage barbie

9.07.2010
Evelyn submitted this classic barbie party in celebration of her daughter Mackenzie's 6th birthday. It all started with a creative Barbie cake using an actual barbie doll for the body. The rest was inspired by the black & pink color scheme and vintage silhouette of barbie, which was incorporated in everything from the invites to the decor... even the birthday girl's t-shirt. You may recall I created a custom inspiration board for a barbie party some months back, and this party is the perfect compliment to the look I had in mind.
