When you’re the child of a celebrity, an ordinary birthday party just won’t cut it. And while this isn’t true for every star, there are a handful of famous parents who take birthday party planning for their children to the next level with celebrations that include carnival rides, haunted houses, and faux film sets. And we’ll admit it: after growing up playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey and Musical Chairs at our own birthday parties, we’re just a tad jealous of these celebrity kids.
For example, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson once went to great lengths to give daughter Maxwell a big circus-like celebration, the Kardashian and Jenner families are known for throwing their kids extra AF birthday parties while parents like Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z spared no expense when it came to planning their children’s birthday events.
So what makes an extravagant kid birthday party? Aside from the price tags — Cardi B and Offset reportedly spent $400,000 on daughter Kulture’s first birthday party — it’s all about ambiance. The Kardashian-Jenners often turn to their favorite party planner Mindy Weiss, who has known Kris Jenner for 40 years and even planned Kim Kardashian’s first birthday party!
Other details of an unforgettable celebrity kid bash? Dreamy themes, elaborate and immersive experiences, decorations that rival those on film sets, yummy catered delicacies, bounce houses, carnival rides, animals — and of course, a Hollywood guest list.
