Strawberry smoothies in shades of pink look perfect when paired with Barbie tableware! Create an ombre effect by adding strawberry Italian soda syrup to create increasingly darker pink hues.

Idea 18: Roll out the runway

Make a fashion runway fit for fashionistas — it's easy with just a few materials! Start by putting up the Barbie scene setter on the wall. Then use three pink table covers over it, gathering at the top, like real curtains. Cut the middle table cover near the top to reveal the scene setter. Then set balloons on both sides and roll out a white table cover on the floor to create the catwalk. All that's left is getting your camera ready for the fashion show!
