Glamorous Fun: A Barbie-Themed Hen Party Like No Other!

25 Jul 2023

All of us here at Butlers with Bums have been loving the Barbie trend with the recent release of the hit movie and we reckon you have too! And what better way to indulge in some girly fun and nostalgia than with a Barbie-themed hen party? Channelling the truly iconic doll, this party theme promises a day filled with glitz, glamour, and fabulous memories that will leave the bride and her squad feeling like they’ve stepped into Barbieland! So, gather your besties and let’s dive into the ultimate Barbie-inspired hen party!

The Invitations:

Set the tone for the Barbie extravaganza with dazzling invitations. Opt for sparkly pink cards adorned with Barbie’s silhouette and a catchy phrase like “Come on Barbie, let’s go hen party!” Encourage guests to dress up as their favourite Barbie character or to wear outfits that embrace the iconic pink theme.

The Venue:

Choosing the right venue is crucial to nailing the Barbie vibe. Look for places that exude femininity and charm, such as chic rooftop bars, classy garden lounges, or a private venue adorned with pink, glittery decorations. Think dreamy pink drapes, golden balloons, and twinkling fairy lights.

Dress Code:

A Barbie-themed hen party calls for the most fabulous attire. Encourage guests to embrace their inner fashionista by dressing up in bright and stylish outfits. From glamorous gowns to cute cocktail dresses, and even edgy Barbie-inspired costumes, let everyone’s creativity shine through. Who doesn’t love a pink-themed hen do anyway?!

Hair and Makeup:

No Barbie look is complete without fabulous hair and makeup. Consider hiring a professional makeup artist to give the bride and her entourage a glamorous makeover. Think long lashes, glossy lips, and those signature Barbie pink cheeks. For the hair, classic big curls, sleek updos, or Barbie’s iconic high ponytail are all excellent options.

Barbie Games and Activities:

Embrace the spirit of Barbie by organizing games and activities that bring out the inner child in everyone. A few ideas include a Barbie trivia quiz, a runway show where guests showcase their best Barbie-inspired outfits, and a makeover station where guests can try out different hairstyles and makeup looks.

Barbie Photo Booth:

Create a photo booth with a Barbie-themed backdrop and plenty of fun props like oversized sunglasses, feather boas, and tiaras. Guests can capture hilarious and glamorous moments to cherish forever.

Pink-tastic Food and Drinks:

Carry the theme into the dining experience with a menu featuring pink cocktails and mocktails. Cupcakes, macarons, and other pink desserts are a must! Consider serving up stylish finger foods and canapés, reminiscent of Barbie’s luxurious lifestyle. We’ve seen lots of inspo on TikTok if you’re stuck for ideas!

Barbie Goodie Bags:

Send guests home with a slice of Barbie magic by preparing adorable goodie bags. Fill them with Barbie-themed trinkets, personalized mementoes, and perhaps some beauty products to help them recreate the Barbie look at home.

Hire a buff butler to be your Ken:

Incorporate a little cheeky fun into your party by hiring a buff butler for your event. You could dress him up as Ken and have him serve prosecco and canapes, take photos and play games with the bride and her hens! Speak to our team today to get a quote.
