What do you get Kris Jenner, the woman who basically has everything, for her birthday? Well, daughter Kim Kardashian had some very creative (and sweet) ideas that she kept as a surprise from her family until the big day arrived.
In an Instagram post, Kim revealed that she rented out the Kardashian childhood home for the day and invited the family and her mom’s closest friends to enjoy it together. In the video, you get to see the moment that everyone finds out where the real location of the celebration is—though Kim makes sure to tell everyone that she did not, in fact, buy the house. Jenner is naturally overcome with emotion.
“Today we celebrate my mom. Anyone that knows her, knows how sentimental she is. For her birthday I planned a small lunch, with just her kids and her closest friends of 40+ years. I sent out invites with a location where we all met,” Kim wrote on Instagram. “When everyone arrived, I told them I had a surprise and this wasn’t where we would be eating. I then gave everyone the REAL invitation and once everyone saw the address for where we would be going tears filled the room. I rented our childhood home.”
“All of our memories live here especially with our dad. It’s where each Kardashian child was born and made us who we are,” she continued. “Growing up, the home had the most ridiculous wallpaper and kitchen set! I remade all of our table settings, decor out of the same fabric and print as the wallpaper. We had lunch at the home as if it hadn’t changed and we cried the entire time.”
But if you thought that was it, you know know this family. “When we walked out to get our cars to drive there, I had another surprise! I had rented every car my parents ever owned. I had some waiting outside so we could drive them to the house and the rest were lined up in the driveway of the house exactly how my parents used to have them parked. I even remade the exact license plates. (Yes my mom had a 2 DIE 4 license plate!)”
It sounds like it was a very emotional (in a good way) day for everyone. “We drove to the home in these cars and relived our childhood! This was the best day ever. I am so proud I was able to keep such a meaningful surprise a secret from my mom and sisters for weeks! This was the most special, nostalgic day of my life and we felt my dad’s presence enjoying this day with us!” Kim wrote. “I kept it together and didn’t cry the entire lunch even though I cried during the entire planning process. But at the end I went into my old bathroom, closed the door and cried so hard.”
“I can’t stop crying 😭 @kimkardashian thank you for planning this for all of us, and @krisjenner thank you for giving us the best childhood 🙏🏼❤️,” Kourtney Kardashian commented. Sister Khloé added, “You are the best daughter EVER.”
And what did the birthday girl think? Well, she loved it: “I can’t stop crying 🙏 this was the most magical day I can remember… Kim you are an angel to all of us … I can’t express what this meant to me and I will now have this beautiful day to add to a lifetime of the most fabulous memories. I couldn’t bear for it to end ❤️🙏 ⭐️✨💫.”
