Barbie™ The Pearl Princess Party…


We are so excited to share this Barbie pool party we recently styled for Toys “R” USThis party was inspired by the new movie, Barbie™ The Pearl Princess Blu-ray & DVD (Pre-order Now! Available 3/11). Be sure to enter to WIN a copy of the DVD and a Lumina doll at the end of this post! We’re giving away 10 sets!

Barbie™ stars as Lumina™, a mermaid who dreams of being a princess.  As long as she can remember, she’s had a magical power that makes pearls dance and glow! Lumina™, and her best friend Kuda, a pink seahorse, embark on an adventure to a majestic mer-kingdom. There, she uses her powers to help her friends prepare for the Royal Ball. Lumina™ then discovers that her magical pearls are the key to unlocking her true destiny and ultimately saving the kingdom.


Barbie™ The Pearl Princess takes place entirely underwater, so what better idea than to host the celebration outdoors for a pool party! Little girls will love this pink, purple and aqua color palette inspired by the colors used most throughout the movie. We designed a collection of free printable Barbie™ The Pearl Princess party designs, including an invitation, cupcake toppers, favor tags, food labels and a happy birthday banner for you to download! You can even add your own text before printing. Sweet treats like clam shell and starfish cookies, embellished cupcakes, white chocolate popcorn and punch are perfect ideas for this poolside birthday party.










A great idea for this poolside party is to prepare boxed lunches before the event starts. Add ribbon and customized name tags to the lunch boxes for each party guest. The girls will love seeing their names on the boxes!


The girls will love to play with the new dolls from Barbie™ The Pearl Princess during the party! Lumina™ and her mermaid friends are adorable.

Just like the characters in the movie, the guests can get dolled up during the party. Easily make these pearl strand clips before the party by stringing on wire and attaching to a hair clip.


Speaking of dolled up, have an adult do the girls’ nails using this adorable Barbie Nail Art Kit at the party. (available at Toys “R” Us stores)

Girls love to play dress-up, so have them take turns trying on Lumina’s Pearl Princess Dress. So darling! (available at Toys “R” Us stores)

To keep the girls busy, set up a bracelet making station. Set out bowls of various colors of “pearls” and help them string on to ribbon or twine. The bracelets make a cute keepsake that they can wear out and about.

    I love Barbie because when I played with them as a girl, my mom would tell me stories about her Barbie (which she still had). Now I tell my daughters about my Barbies (which I still have). Generations of fun in a toy.

    I love Barbie because she embodies the brilliance of womanhood. Barbie was my mom’s favorite toy. She grew up to be a teacher. She’s my fave, and I grew up to be a writer. She’s my daughter’s favorite, and she wants to work with animals in some capacity. Three different generations with three different interests all love Barbie :) Pretty amazing!

    We love Barbie because she is just one girl but has the ability to be whomever she wants and make a big difference. When reading or watching Barbie my daughters get exposed to community members like seeing eye dog trainers, traditional stories like The Princess and the Pauper along with music from several ballets, and Barbie also models qualities of what it means to be a great sister.
    We initially got into the Barbie movies because of Barbie and the pink slippers. This was the theme for my 5 year old’s birthday and she adores her Barbie bedding.
    The best part of Barbie in our home, for me, is the connection my girls have by sharing Barbie with a 15 year old girl I mentor. This teen has decided it is time to pass along her Barbie DVD collection and each time she visits our home she gifts us with a new Barbie movie from her collection. Now my girls can look to her as a mentor as they sing the Barbie songs together and play Barbies.
    The way Barbie has the ability to cross generations for 55 years is just awesome to me.

    I’m new at these downloadable printables. I like the idea of the circles on the tumblers. Were these printed on a white sticker sheet?

    Everything about this is completely DARLING!!! Such great inspiration…especially since my 4 year old is SO into Barbie right now (in fact, I believe it is playing in the next room haha)!

    Quick question – I am DYING to know where that darling purple tutu bathing suit is!!!! My little lady would FLIP!

    Hi, I would love to organize a barbie party for my daughter too. And this pearl party you posted is just perfect. I just cant open the dropbox files though. “The file you’re looking for has been moved or deleted.” is the error I’m getting. Is there a possibility that you can post another link or maybe email?

      Hi Stephanie!
      Thank you so much for letting me know! I just updated all of the links for the printables, so they should work for you now!
