Kim Kardashian West just turned 40, and her family threw an epic party to celebrate.
The KKW Beauty founder took to social media to share photos from the incredible event, which paid tribute to her birthday parties through the years. From blowing out candles on a Sweet Sixteen cake to re-watching birthday videos from the past, Kim’s 40th was a celebration of her life so far. Kim’s sisters—Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian—were all in attendance, and coordinated with one another by wearing leotards and bowties.
Sharing snaps from the event on social media, Kim wrote, “All I can say is WOW! My mom and my sisters threw me the most epic surprise party that was so special in my heart. We showed it on E as a special so you guys got to see the behind the scenes of how it really went down.”
Guests also had the chance to pose next to a vintage cardboard cut-out of Kim K herself. Meanwhile, the real Kim looked stunning in a gold, sparkly mini dress, which she paired with René Caovilla Cleo Sandals.
“You know I’m a sentimental person and this party was the most special,” she continued. “They re-created all of my special birthdays throughout my life from looking at all of our old home videos. They re-created the party, The same balloons, the same cake, everything! My dad video taped and documented our whole lives so they showed each of the videos of my birthdays on a big screen behind the party.”
“I entered into the room that started off at my first birthday party with the same ponies and the same cake, and my dad wishing me a happy 1st birthday. Then as I entered in the room I ended up at my second birthday then my fourth birthday leading up to my 10th birthday where my sisters did the same exact dance that they did for me when I turned 10,” Kim explained. “We then got to my 16th birthday party and my exact same car was there waiting for me with the same exact balloons with the same cake.
She continued, “After a while the curtains opened and the bottle service girls came out which happened to be my sisters and they re-created Tao night club, where I spent all of my 30s having my birthday parties. Each and every detail that went into this was so special and I am forever grateful to my family for taking the time to put this together to celebrate me turning 40.”
Kim continued, “I can’t wait to share so many more birthday photos and videos with you guys soon and I thank each and everyone of you who reached out with birthday wishes ✨ Also shout of to @mindyweiss for putting this all together. You were there putting together all my birthday parties when I was a little girl so this definitely came full circle.”
