Ahead of the much-anticipated launch of the Barbie movie – and premiere taking place tonight in London’s Leicester Square - it’s safe to say that the vibrant Barbie-core aesthetic is a big trend for Summer 2023 and not going anywhere. Supermarket Asda has unveiled a host of products to help customers celebrate and get involved.
Whether shoppers are looking to throw a Barbie-core inspired party or simply nod to pink, achieving the look and getting involved, alone or with friends, doesn’t have to break the bank. From a beautiful-licensed cake centrepiece to pink party wear, customers can find it at Asda!
Barbie Celebration Cake
First up is the Mattel licensed Barbie Celebration cake, an important centrepiece for any Barbie-party. Little ones and grown-ups alike – whether a 10th birthday or pre-Barbie cinema trip girls dinner - will love the exclusive sponge cake. Available only in Asda stores until Friday 21st July and priced at just £14.00.
The beautifully decorated sponge comes with a layer of raspberry jam and sweet filling, covered with soft icing and finished with edible decoration featuring Barbie and her friends. Shoppers, no matter their age, can share it with 1 of their besties, too (serves 16).
What’s a Barbie party without pink decorations, whether catering for little ones, the clumsy Barbie and Kens in your lives or just wanting to save on the washing up - from Pink Metallic Balloons at £1.00 per 8pk, Pink Kids Paper Party Cups at £1.00 per 10pk, Light Pink Paper Plates, £1.25 per 12pk , Baby Pink 2-ply paper napkins, 50pk at £1.25 and a Pink Tablecover for just £2.50 – you can find everything you need to dress the table for just £7.00, in total!
For a more grown-up party, replace the kids tableware with some beautifully mature alternatives. We’re talking pink tumblers, which wouldn’t look out of place on Barbie’s Kitchen table in her beach house - £10.00 for two, beautiful pink gin glasses, £14 for set of 4, pink speckled 12 piece dinner set at £25.00 plus 4 matching pasta bowls for an additional £14.00.
