The Kardashians know how to throw a good party. Whether it’s an over-the-top baby shower or their annual family Christmas Eve soireé, each party is more glamorous and creative than the next. While we can’t all afford a $2 million event budget (all spent on one party — keep reading to find out which one), we can draw inspiration from each of their celebrations. We took a look back at 6 of our favorite Kardashian-hosted parties, then created an Idea Slate to represent each bash to help inspire your next events.

Inspired by Travis Scott’s Astroworld album, Kylie Jenner worked with Mindy Weiss to transform a Los Angeles warehouse into Stormi’s World for her daughter’s first birthday party. Revelry Event Designers used creative décor and design to customize carnival-themed surprises, like a room filled with ball pits, tons of rides and games, and Stormi’s World-branded eats and treats, including this stunning carousel-inspired cake by Julie Simon Cakes.

Mindy Weiss’s most recent project was Kim Kardashian’s CBD-themed baby shower, which celebrated the upcoming arrival of her fourth child with husband, Kanye West. Interactive stations invited guests to make their own CBD bath salts and bath oils, followed by a group sound bath to enhance the relaxed vibes of the party. Décor was minimal, which we found super chic — and refreshing.

We wait all year to see the glitz and glam of the annual Kardashian Christmas Eve party, and this past year’s event did not disappoint. Kim took over as host, and there was no shortage of glittering décor, delicate twinkle lights by Images by Lighting, and a chic color palette of black, white, and silver with stunning designs by Marks Garden. She even went as far as to make it snow in Calabasas with the help of The Trask House and Snow Business USA. When it comes to the holidays, the Kardashians never disappoint.

Kris Jenner helped shape the careers of her famous daughters, so it’s only right that they repay her with an epic 60th birthday party. The Gatsby-themed bash — held at The Lot in West Hollywood — had a generous $2 million budget, which was strategically spent by event planner, Mindy Weiss. Élan Artists gave wow-worthy performances all night, as any Gatsby-worthy celebration should. Guests enjoyed a custom dance floor with chic white lounge furniture, a floral and balloon-filled ceiling by Balloon Celebrations, and a stunning ivory floral wall (offering a perfect photo backdrop) once again by Jeff Leatham.

We love a whimsical theme, and Mindy Weiss perfectly orchestrated this Alice in Wonderland-themed party to celebrate Chicago West’s first birthday. Characters from the beloved Disney film greeted guests as they entered the party through a greenery and red rose-arched doorway by the floral king and longtime family friend, Jeff Leatham. Once inside, guests made their way through a hedge maze to find themed sweets, including a themed birthday cake.

Years have passed since Kim and Kanye tied the knot in Italy, but we’re no less inspired by their wedding celebration planned by Jinane Kafrouny of Weddings Italy. The Kardashians love a clean palette, so it was no surprise to see the all-white-everything ceremony. We loved the sleek white chairs and chic white floors, but our favorite design element was definitely the stunning (and towering) white floral wall, which served as a backdrop as the couple said “I do.”
