Though we're still in the dark trenches of Winter around here, we know sunny days are ahead. What better way to celebrate warmer weather than with a pool party? One of our favorite party planners, Kim Stoegbauer of TomKat Studio, did just that to fete the latest Barbie movie.
Barbie: The Pearl Princess ($27) — the story of a mermaid who dreams of being a princess (sound familiar?) — takes place entirely underwater, so to celebrate the flick, Kim planned a pool party using a pink, purple, and aqua color palette. There were Barbie, mermaid, and sea-princess activities to keep the guests busy before a viewing of the film. There was also plenty of delicious party fare like sugar cookies, cupcakes, popcorn, and more. Kim added her signature touch in the form of custom printables (available as free downloads) to coordinate with the theme. Read on for all the sweet details — the clamshell cookies are magnificent — and an exclusive clip from the movie!
