Cupcakes, clowns, and pony rides are for ordinary three year olds. When you carry the genes of
Beyonce, more is required when celebrating one’s birthday, as demonstrated by the impeccable festivities held by
Blue Ivy Knowles-Carter. The three year-old rang in a new year of life while on a family trip to Thailand, and her mother, the aforementioned Queen of the World, shared a tiny glimpse of the day’s celebration, which seemed involve an ice sculpture, tasteful balloon shapes, and elegant floral arrangements. It makes North West’s birthday celebrations (Coachella themed, you’ll recall) look positively crass. No word on what the birthday girl wore, but rest assured it was cooler than anything you will ever wear in your entire lifetime.
