The Australian soiree was complete with Mickey and Minnie,of course, chandeliers, a three tier themed cake and even a performance from an Australian Idol contestant, Courtney Murphy. Hundreds of people attended the lavish event and had a great time.

Since the party, there has been some criticism for the parents throwing an extravagant party for their tiny tot but Eric says he party was money well spent.

The event showcased local produce and provided employment for local people. Eric said in a press release, “We inject tens of thousands of dollars back in the community through our celebrations and we are proud of it.”

The family owns the venue Caversham House in Western Australia and they plan on continuing the tradition of having a large party for their daughter's birthday. Eric explained, "We work many hours catering for weddings and other occasions, so we don’t get to spend much time with our own loved ones. The birthday party was a way to celebrate Lauren’s birthday and enjoy the company of relations, close friends and business friends."
