It was an over-the-top extravaganza Saturday to celebrate the first birthday of Dannielynn Birkhead, the daughter of Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead.
There were pink balloons decorating the iron gates of host Tricia Barnstable Brown’s home (the site where Larry and Anna Nicole first met in 2003), a hot-air balloon shaped like a birthday cake, a huge castle, a bubble machine and a white carriage.
Larry says: “It really was great to see her smile, especially through all the things that we’ve been through, just to get to that milestone of one year was just great.”
Indeed, in the past year, Dannielynn has lost both her mother and her older brother, and was caught in the middle of a custody battle between Larry and Anna Nicole’s lawyer Howark K. Stern.
Guests of the party had to sign a release form promising not to take any pictures, and had to surrender their cell phones.
Dannielynn’s actual first birthday was Friday.
