An Australian father threw his daughter an over-the-top birthday party she won’t remember.
Eric Lembo, who runs a a reception venue in Western Australia and therefore knows how to put on a party, spent A$50,000 on a birthday extravaganza for his 3-year-old daughter Lauren, according to Perth Now.
Along with his partner, Trang Nguyen, the couple from Perth hosted a Disney-themed event at the venue Caversham House, which Lembo owns with his parents. Lauren and her 50 friends were treated to a performance by former Australian Idol contestant Courtney Murphy, a station for fairyfloss, a balloon artist, a photo booth and a high tea.
The party also catered to the needs of the 170 adult guests — with food including scallops, truffle arancini, pork belly and oysters. To top it off, the guests refreshed themselves with Remy Martin XO Cognac.
