Malibu Barbie 4th Birthday

We made Barbie dreams come true with this fun and vibrant 4th birthday party! We transformed this backyard into Barbie’s world and we are so excited to share all the details from this event. The Malibu Barbie theme couldn’t be any more fitting as the birthday girl’s name is Layla Malibu!

When Layla’s mom requested 4 cakes for Layla since she was turning 4 years old, we knew we needed to create a massive cake display! For the backdrop, we combined several of our wooden arches, spray painted palm trees, added beach-themed inflatables and custom surfboard props and more! To complete the look, we displayed the four cakes on our white pedestals – all with a fun beach vibe and custom details!

In addition to the cake backdrop, we created this epic balloon wall with giant custom signage! We worked with a very talented graphic designer to create a cartoon version of the birthday girl along with her name in the classic Barbie font. We are in love with all the bright and vibrant colors and the beautiful pool added to the Malibu Barbie vibe!

Guests enjoyed all the sugar at this party! We styled our candy cart with fun and vibrant balloons and the cutest custom sugar cookies! To add to the fun, the cutest cotton candy cart provided made-to-order cotton candy for the guests. Lots of yummy flavors to choose from!

The giant ball pit was certainly a highlight of this event! It had not one, but two slides! We just love how it came together with the custom decals and balloons. Layla had a blast “sliding” her way into 4 years old!

Layla Malibu’s boutique was the perfect addition to this fun birthday party. Layla and her guests grabbed a bag and got “shopping” for all their favorite Barbies and accessories. They made the best party favors!

It wouldn’t be a party without some fun entertainment! Guests were welcomed with a squishie painting station and slime making station.

After getting creative, guests headed over to the Glitter Makeup and Manicure Spa stations! The birthday girl and her guests were pampered with spa manicures and Barbie nail decals.

For the kids space, we set up small tables and chairs. We love the bright and fun florals on the kids table with personalized floral picks. The bounce house was the perfect addition for guests to jump around before enjoying the most amazing food prepared by a team of private chefs!

Guests felt like Barbie dolls with this fun Barbie Box! It was the perfect photo op and we love all the fun balloons.

This party was surely one for the books! Happy birthday Layla Malibu Rose!
