North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, just had her first birthday, and she had a blow-out celebration. Kim and Kanye gave her the kid version of a Coachella inspired party, which they called Kidchella.
The party was held on June 15, 2014, in the back yard of Kourtney Kardashian's newly purchased Calabasa mansion. The guests were asked to wear festival attire which gives them an idea of what kind of party they are attending. The couple spared no expense to celebrate North's first birthday. The birthday girl wore a fringed outfit and sported a crown of flowers around her head. She had a tiered rainbow colored birthday cake with daisies on the side. In front of the family stands North's tiered rainbow birthday cake.
Kim and Kanye had a full sized Ferris wheel for the guests to ride. If they didn't want a bird's eye view of the neighborhood, the guests could wander around and eat at the food booths, or participate in fun activities at the other booths. Some of the festival goodies they could eat and drink included lemonade, sno-cones, funnel cakes, churros and cotton candy. The party also had a lip-syncing state, hair braiding, face painting, and bounce house.
Once again, the couple met with some controversy when they portrayed Native Americans. Khloe posted a picture Instagram of her sitting outside a miniature teepee, dressed as an Indian chief. She captioned the picture, "Ray of clouds. Chirping of birds. Gurgling of water. Granting desire. One with water. #Kidchella my first Coachella!!!" Many of the comments that flooded her Instagram page were not flattering. They left some very pointed comments about being "Disrespectful" to the Native American people and their culture.
A source told Us Weekly, "Kim was holding North a lot of the time, and the party seemed to be geared towards a little bit older kids. But it was a family party with all ages, and no matter what age they were, they were having a great time. There was so much to do."
Earlier, Kim met with controversy when she and Kanye had North's ears pierced. Pictures showed her wearing earrings that were about half a carat total weight set in platinum. The cost is estimated to be around $1,500. However, the diamond earrings was just the bling of the celebration.
Kim posted several pictures on her Instagram page of North enjoying her birthday party.
