Embracing a Healthy Family: Our Barbie and the Musketeers Birthday Party #barbieparty

Our Barbie and the Musketeers Birthday Party #barbieparty

It took a little time but we finally were able to have the Barbie Musketeer party that Danielle wanted.  I had to change it a bit because she already had a smaller scaled birthday party and Jamie wanted to know why she was getting two so I told them it was for both of them. Danielle is an official Barbie fan but more so the movies and not really playing with the dolls.  Barbie and the Musketeers is an older movie so there was nothing available for a party and the dolls were discontinued so that made it a bit more challenging.  I was able to find this Velvet French Musketeer Hat Red Band Red Feather Quill Costume Gold Buckle for a great price at Amazon.  To create the different colors to match the final dresses, I just exchanged the color of the ribbon and added a feather.  This was the original dress I picked out from Melissa Jane Boutique on Etsy.

I have to tell you that I've bought a lot of items from Etsy and I can tell you that this shop is the very best! She has wonderful communication and keeps you updated. I've dealt with so many sellers who never say a word to you and then all of a sudden you receive your item. I don't know about you but I'm more inclined to remember and return to nice folks who were taught manners and had proper etiquette and she is one. The dress is just absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately, they wanted matching dresses so I had to opt for another route.  I did buy their dresses from Amazon and they had these specific ones but not for all the other Musketeers so I looked for other variations (Barbie 3 Musketeer's Corinne's Dress Role Play Costume - Size 4-6x).

This is the party invitation which I just made using Adobe Photoshop.


For the cake, I actually had my oldest daughter make the cake.  She used the Wilton Wonder Mold Kit and instead of using the doll that came with it, she cut out the center, wrapped the original Barbie Musketeer doll with saran wrap and pushed her inside the cake.  She did make a round one layer base to ensure she had enough room to fit in the cake.  She then made the floral icing skirt.


Our parties our usually small so we don't have to make a lot of party favors.  These were Hershey bars with wrappers I made using Microsoft Digital Image. I downloaded the Barbie font to create their personalized bars and added a floral jewel to each one.


The Large Mardi Gras Standee, Purple Masquerade Couple Standees Party Props and purple paper on a roll completed the look.


The cake pops were turned into skirts and I used Barbie Musketeer cut outs to slip in.  Jamie, who is 10, made them all by herself.  I did help with dipping them in the chocolate.  The cookies were purchases from another very nice seller on Etsy called The Sweet Shop Cookie Co.  These cookies not only were perfect to look at but they tasted great!  The seller also had perfect communication!
  The little hats were small cowboy hats that the girls and I painted black and I hot glued one side up and added a feather to look like musketeer hats.  I placed those on top of each water bottle.



The other party favors included a Barbie and The Three Musketeers Viveca Doll , Barbie and the Three Musketeers (Barbie) (Step into Reading) and All for One! (Barbie) (Deluxe Coloring Book). Each individual doll, the specific character they were, were placed in a wine bottle holder that I purchased at Michaels.


Here is Jamie making the cake pops.  She loves making cake pops and is on her way in mastering them!


The table wasn't complete and was missing many items.  Also showing are the cheese cake push-up pops that Danielle made.


These are the bottle labels I made on Microsoft again.


No party is complete without tattoos so I found some cute ones at Target that were a huge hit.


Another picture of the cookies makes on a stick. Aren't they cute?


We also made Scrabble tile necklaces.  With Modge Podge and images taken off the boxes from the dolls, we made our own personalize necklaces.



My two biggest regrets was not planning more as I ran out of time and not making them the cutest musketeer boots I saw on Pinterest.  After seeing their bare feet, it would have been perfect!


Here is a cute addition to the party that I made too late.  If you aren't familiar with felt dolls they are just like paper dolls but are made as the name states with felt.  If you have an embroidery machine, you can make these as adorable party favors and so much more.  Not only is Amelia available but there are many other felt dolls for purchase at Taylor Made With Love

I didn't get to do as much as I normally do but the girls had fun and that's what counts!
