Barbie Cocktail Party

Calling all Barbie fans! If you’re looking for a fun and festive way to celebrate your next party, look no further than a Barbie-themed bar. Our Senior Event Specialist, David Reilich, designed a Pinterest-worthy Barbie cocktail party right in the A Classic Party Rental showroom. We can’t get KENough of it! Stop by Monday – Friday to see the bar set up and our other showroom tablescape designs!


“My sister did not play with Barbies, so my reference point is quite general. For me, the design challenge was about translating the magic of dress-up into a party for a more sophisticated adult audience. Any event planner knows that when you sash linen on a standing cocktail table, you create the equivalent of a woman’s skirt. So I just took that a little further by creating different looks for each table. We knew a lot of adult women would want to have cocktail parties around the movie premier, so the idea of “Cocktail Barbie” made perfect sense to us.” – David, A Classic Party Rental 

Setting up the Bar

The first step to setting up a Barbie-themed bar is to get the décor right. You’ll want to fill the space with plenty of pink, of course. Think pink tablecloths, pink backdrop, and pink carpet. You can also add some fun Barbie-themed touches, like a custom bar wrap, palm trees, and “BEACH” Rosé.

“Yeah, because actually my job, it’s just Beach.” -Ken
