Turning one is a big milestone for any child. But when Chicago West’s first birthday rolled around (January 15), we knew the ‘rents (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) were going to go all out for their third-born.
To celebrate, the family had an extravagant Alice in Wonderland-inspired party on Saturday, 19 January. We were living through Kim Kardashian’s stories as she took to Instagram to capture the birthday bash.
Kim’s home was transformed into a magical wonderland, complete with giant maze, faux grass, red roses and other OTT decorations (all kid-friendly, of course). Alice and the Queen of Hearts were there too, welcoming guests as they arrived at the keyhole-shaped entrance to the grand party. In line with the theme, Chicago and her Kousins (see what we did there?) were dressed in adorable costumes.
Tea party and chess
There was a tea party and giant chess board just like the one in Alice in Wonderland. We wouldn’t mind being stuck at this tea party for ages!
The Mad Hatter
There was even a Mad Hatter station where kids could make different hats and headbands.
And what’s a kiddies party without a jumping castle? Kimye made sure their one-year-old cutie had it all. Other fun-filled activities included arts and crafts, a balloon maker and dessert fit for the gods. As a party favour, kids were given stuffed animals, which we spotted on Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram photo.
The birthday cake was huge and Alice-themed too, with an icing replica of the famous Cheshire Cat as well as a fondant teapot. Lewis Caroll would have been proud.
Of course, no Kar-West birthday would be complete without a standout present. Kourtney Kardashian gifted her niece Chi with a neon yellow Mercedes G-Wagon – the miniature version of Kim’s. Baby Chi and her older brother, Saint West, and big sister, North West, checked out the new wheels together.
More celebrations are in order as Kim and Kanye are expecting a baby boy this year. Kim gave no hints when her surrogate is due, except that the baby will arrive “sometime soon”. Plus, Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi will turn one on February 1, and the mom and daughter duo have already kicked off pre-birthday celebrations with a tropical vacation. We can only imagine what the actual birthday is going to be like!
Happy Birthday, Chicago!
