Think Pink! It’s Barbie’s Favorite Color
To set the tone just right, take a look at this color palette we’ve put together inspired by Barbie’s absolute favorite color, pink! We love soft hues and believe that these colors will survive past your bachelorette since they can be matched easily to other items that are already in your wardrobe. To really sell the idea of Barbie, we suggest that all your clothing, decoration, gifts, and aesthetic accents are… pink, of course!
Add Accessories the Barbie Way
When you’re looking for bridesmaid gifts, check out our blush bridesmaid collection which combines all of our most beloved pink pieces that will easily double as great accessories for your Barbie-themed bachelorette party. As Barbie always said, “Accessories are like the finishing touches of a masterpiece, they complete the picture.” Including the right accessory can entirely change the way you feel about an outfit. Between you and us, life is too short for boring outfits. So, raise your glass and indulge in fun fashion where pink is the essential accessory to your matching outfits.
Pick a Stay in Barbie’s Hometown
Fun Fact: Barbie is from Malibu! If a destination bachelorette was on your mind, there is nowhere else that would complement a Barbie-themed party better than Malibu, California. Known for its stunning coastline and picturesque views, Malibu sets the stage for a truly memorable celebration where you can rock your own story. The sun-drenched beaches and crystal-clear waters create a dreamy backdrop that perfectly complements the Barbie aesthetic. You can read more on the best spots to stay here.
Don’t worry if Malibu is out of your budget. Barbie believes that choosing the right location is like finding the perfect photo-op backdrop for your party. Remember, the goal of the party is to promote positive memories and provide ample opportunities for fun and laughter. So, really think about the type of atmosphere you want to create and let the venue reflect your vision. Sometimes, the most unexpected places can be the most memorable.
Decorations Make it Extra Special
After you’ve selected your primetime spot, it’s time to unleash your creativity through big, bold, pink decorations that will transport your guests to Barbie’s Dream World. Just think!
