Do you remember your first birthday party? No? Well that’s too bad, because your parents might’ve spent $109,000 on it!

Well, ok, they probably didn't. But the parents of twins in England just did! UK's premier party planner, Steven Duggan, was commissioned to create a lavish party atmosphere in the theme of Peter Pan meets Alice in Wonderland -- all in honor of twins turning one year of age.

The beautiful party included floral arrangements, tons of props and lighting effects, delicious treats, and an amazing cake.

Will the two birthday kids ever remember this? Definitely not. Will all of the adult partygoers remember this? Definitely.

How unnecessary. BTW, memory doesn't set in till 4-5, so the twins won't remember it either ;)

The first BDay isn't really about the kids. It is about the parents.

If I had millions, I would do this and so would everyone else.. Don't hate.. 

 

I don't understand why people hate over other people's kids.. "Why does that three y.o have an iPad".. I hear it all the time.. If you had the money, you would give your get an iPad too!

No not everyone would. Just because someone has money doesn't mean they blow it on what ever stupid thing they can think of. I also don't think it has to do with hating the kids as much as parents wasting money on something that can't be appreciated for the ones it's supposedly for. The party was most likely for the parents then it was for the kids.

No, I wouldn't.

 

If others want to waste money like that, then it is their choice though

this is clearly not a person with $1 Mil.     it they are , then they are lottery winners and are not very smart. 

 

this are people who have 10s of millions (or more) and for them to have a crazy party like that for 1 birthdays of TWINS, is actually pretty cool.  

maybe this twins had very hard birth and the fact that they are alive, is a reason for parents to celebrate in style.

 

i think it is much more cool then lavish rapper type pool parties that some people throw same amount of money on!!

 

I would have loved to attend.

Money spent is good for the economy.  They can't all be smart purchases.

That looks like a ###### first birthday to be honest. I guarantee you I'd rather a Pizza Bash at Chucky Cheese, this looks like a formal adult party with a childish theme. Are the kids even allowed to have.... fun?

 

No, thank you.

When you grow up very wealthy, you don't have a concept of wasting money like poor people do. They will more likely complain that they didn't get a Lambo until they were 6.
