The sons and daughters of rich celebrities typically enjoy lavish birthday parties, which are far fancier than "regular" birthday parties. After all, their famous parents are loaded and more than willing to splash out cash for amazing decorations, entertainment, food (including lavish b-day cakes) and venues. These children's birthday parties are more elaborate than most non-famous people's weddings.
Moms who want to spoil their kids on birthdays may gain inspiration from these "crazy rich" kid's birthday parties, which are possible to re-create without spending the same amount of money. It particularly helps if moms are motivated to make their own decorations, provide entertainment and do the cooking and baking.
There may be moms who think all of the parties on today's list are OTT (over the top). They may be right. Celebs do get some shade for going overboard on their kid's parties, but it doesn't stop them from doing it. They have the money to throw great big parties with all of the bells and whistles and they want to spend that money on their kid's special days.
From Blue Ivy's fairy-themed fourth birthday party to Harper Beckham's bash at Buckingham Palace and beyond, these children's birthday parties are glam events. They rival the red carpet events that the famous parents of these kids attend so often.
20 Blue Ivy Had A Fairy-themed 4th Birthday Party
When your mommy is worth 355 million dollars and your daddy is worth 810 million dollars, your childhood birthday parties are going to be epic. Blue Ivy's mommy is Beyoncé and her Dad is Jay-Z.
They have more money than they can ever spend, and they choose to use a little bit of it to throw lavish parties for their first-born daughter every year.
On Blue Ivy's fourth birthday, a fairy theme was chosen and no expense was spared, according to Eonline. Party guests chilled on bright couches, or inside of tents, or at a big table that featured chairs with butterfly wings attached. Racks of child-sized fairy dresses were onsite so little guests could enjoy some fun dress-up playtime.
19 Mariah Carey’s Twins Had a Disneyland Party
Mariah has two kids by her ex, Nick Cannon. Their names are Monroe and Morocco. When the twins turned six, they were at Disneyland with mom and dad. The birthday celebration was not an inexpensive one.
According to TMZ, the party cost "five figures". There were tons of people in attendance to celebrate the birthday of the twins, who received a couple of cakes. Monroe is a girl and Morocco is a boy, so Monroe's cake featured Minnie Mouse and Morocco's featured Mickey Mouse.
That's pretty cute if less than gender-neutral. Although Mariah and Nick aren't together anymore, they once renewed their wedding vows at "the world's happiest place".
18 Harper Beckham Had Her Party At Buckingham Palace
There was some media backlash after Harper Beckham was permitted to celebrate her birthday at Buckingham Palace, or, as the royals themselves call it, "Bucks House".
According to the Express, some critics felt that Harper and her family did not have the right to hold a party there...probably because they aren't members of the royal family.
Harper spent her sixth birthday with friends and family, enjoying a tea party and meeting a real princess (Princess Eugenie, who is Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's daughter). David Beckham and wife, Victoria, brushed off the criticism because they are friends with the royal family.
