Fun Birthday Trivia: Naomi Campbell had a three-day, $1.8 million birthday celebration in 2006, which was held in the famed 18-floor, seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. Naomi's three-day bash included themes. On day one, guests partied to an "All White" theme. On day two they experienced "Hip Hop" and day three, the "Brazilian Samba" spiced up the dance floor.

Prize #6:
Sixth question: If you had 1.8 million to frivolously spend on your birthday, where or how would you celebrate?

I would bring everyone I could get to go to Disney World. All the kids I could round up and their parents, open just for us for a day. And CAKE for everyone, lol.

Kathy W said...

I would plan a year of contra dance camp hopping across the United States and the British Isles with my husband. Then I would give the rest of the money to schools and organizations to promote literacy. Sorry, that amount of money is so insanely huge that I would have to share. As a teacher, some would have to go to kids :)

Cris said...

I would rent an island complete with cabins for each guest, personal chefs, yachts to for day excursions on the ocean, and lots of umbrella drinks, food and dancing!!!

Wow, I'm not sure that I could frivolously spend 1.8 million dollars, but I'd surely give it a go. I'd most likely fly all of my family (sibs, parents, in-laws, etc) someplace tropical where we could rent a villa for 10 days (completely staffed) and forget about the world for a bit. Of course, there would have to be enough left over to add-on a scrapping wing (completely stocked) to the side of my house!! Thx for another chance to win a great prize!

cas said...

Oh my gosh, if I had $1.8 millions dollars I wouldn't spend it on a party but I would purchase a darling little beach cottage to have a party or two in!!! Put on those flip-flops and come on over!

Teresa Kline aka va.sunshine said...

I would fly around the world, I would like to see it all!

enjoy *~*

pattyo said...

I would take my entire family to Bermuda and stay in oceanfront cottages, all meals served, and fun activities or just relaxing on hammocks!

Zarah said...

I would rent a castle in France and bring my family there for a nice bash - and then, afterwards, I'd fly them home while I'd hop into the car with DH and go on a road trip through France, Italy, Spain... and see ALL these places I've longed to see since I was a kid.
I'd also throw a SCRAPPY partay for my scrappy friends all over the globe. We'd be in Italy, Greece or Spain or something, with a private chef, a SPA and a boat at our disposal...
Well.... A girl can dream!

Ellie A. said...

WOW I don't even know if I could think how to even image all that money.. and to spen it on my BDAY?? that;s just insane! How about I would get everyone a year of cupcakes for a year from my fav. crumbs (a dozen a mth YUM) and have a p.j.bday weekend w/my BFFs (there are 28 of us) in a rented Villa where we would be taken care of and pampered for the a LONG 3 day weekend in the country somewhere ((travel expenses included of course since we all live all over the country).. I know prob.don't get close to spending the whole amount BUT that would make me the HAPPPPPPIEST Bday girl ever! lol

Connie said...

think I would travel all around the world for 6 mos to a year. There are so many places I want to visit!

Cassie said...

I have no idea...I spend a lot of money...but that is insane...I would plan something for my kids. My daughter and her friends seem to know how to make everything fun.= and exciting.
=)

Betsy said...

Well, I have to admit that I could not enjoy it if I did not give some of it to favorite charities, first. After doing that, I would probably look for some acreage in the country and have a house built on it and then start adding all the cats and kittys (some dogs too!) that need a home where they could roam outdoors.

Elsina said...

I would spend my birthday as we always celebrate it and with the money buy a larger house. One with a studio!

PamS said...

I would plan an around world cruise. I am sure you could put a dent in that much cash at all the ports you would stop at.

Steph said...

I'd take everyone special to me as we'd travel the world for as long as the money lasted! Years I should think!

Luanne said...

I would celebrate with friends and family on an exotic island and then with the rest hold a giant fundraiser.

Erika M. said...

I would take my whole family to Italy, rent a huge piazza and party down!

Bev M said...

I can't even imagine spending 1.8 million on my birthday. But, if I had to I think it would be pretty awesome to invite all my family and friends and head to Europe to eat and party until the funds ran out. We would visit London, Paris, tons of spots in Italy, and finish it up in Greece.

Daniela said...

Rent a bih yacht and party!

Mary said...

I would take my entire family (extended too) on a fabulous trip and we would all just enjoy hanging out, eating good food, seeing great sites and enjoying our time together. Maybe somewhere like Germany - or Australia - always wanted to go to those places -

Pattyjo said...

Wow if I HAD to spend it on my Birthday..then I would fly a big group of people to Hawaii and celebrate it on the beach.

shruti said...

Definitely in Bahamas, with all my friends and family..

Shanon said...

Vacations! I would fly my entire family to visit us in Germany and we would travel all over visiting my favorite places!

Yvette said...

OMG! What fun! I would take my entire family (both sides) on a European Cruise. With lots of scrapbooking celebs and sports celebs to teach us all our interests!

cornellgj said...

I would travel around the world!

rae said...

Bora Bora, baby!
Going there for our honeymoon was a pipedream, I'd love to make the dream come true!!
Acutally, I would probably spend it all on travel, I'd love to take my family around the world and have them witness different cultures first hand.
Although buying a beach house in a tropical climate sounds nice too ;)

Colleen said...

For a Birthday present that would be Awesome.... I would pay off all my debts!! Can you imagine..being totally debt free...then I head to some sunny beach getaway, all inclusive of course... with all my favorite peeps. That would be a lovely Birthday!

Karen S. said...

I would travel around the world - there is so much I'd like to see...I'd also have to donate -certainly couldn't spend all that money on myself!

Lori said...

I can't imagine spending that kind of money on a birthday party, think of how many people you could feed... how wasteful! I'd make sure all of the local food pantries have a birthday party in a box for all of the children in need and with the rest I'd travel a bunch with all of my favorite peeps!

melissaahelm said...

I would take all my fam&friends to somewhere tropical hanging out in the sun--getting pampered all day! Massages are a must!

kimsparks636 said...

A summer long trip in Europe, 1st class. Sounds like heaven to me!

Créaisa said...

My happiness will be to be with my family and have a nice day.
Oh money !!!! I dream I dream HiHi
Scrapbises.

Rebekah said...

Well if I had that amount of money I'd fly my favourite family and friends on a trip of a lifetime..one they wouldnt forget..after all, birthdays are about celebrating with the ones you love..so it makes sense to me to share all that $$

Jennifer Hansen said...

I would never be that frivilous! But would maybe bring the whole family on a nice trip and then use most of the money on others.

mcjeeps said...

finally an easy one! I would make the world a better place in my hometown beginning on my birthday with German chocolate cake.

Melanie said...

International travel with family and close friends!!!

Scrapycandy said...

It would be hard to be frivolous...but if I was forced to....I would be off to the Greek Islands to help them with their financial difficulties...

Birgit said...

OMG, so much money!
I guess I would take all my family and friends on a trip to the Caribbean Sea!

Becky said...

I would add a wing on to our house. Part of the new wing would have a large craft room with beautiful windows, large cabinets and counter tops for scrapping!!

lou340 said...

With all my family, we rent a cottage in an exotic island. Viva la vida!

Jennifer said...

I would turn my birthday into a birthday year and spend it travelling the world with my family and a few close friends.

Lisa Lou said...

I'd take all of my family to Disney World.

Kay said...

I would charter a private jet and invite my closet friends and family to Tahiti. I would rent out several of the thatched huts that are over the water and then treat them to anything they wanted. Food, drinks, massages, activities, you name it!!

Cindee Stacey said...

After donating to a few of my favorite charities, I'd start off with a cruise or two!! I'd also take a small group to Disney & go on the Disney cruise also. I love cruises!!

Sandra D said...

The most beautiful place I have been is Maui so I would take all my loved ones there.

Chris said...

I would treat all my family to a luxurious holiday somewhere warm and shopping sprees for everyone. :)

Таня said...

with my sweetheart of husband on an paradise island... just the way to be happy

Vicky B. said...

On a cruise ship with my family and friends. That would be so much fun soaking up the sun with those I love.

Karen said...

I would still do dinner with my family, more upscale and use the money to buy cars and homes for myself and my kids.

Debbie said...

I would fly my scrapbooking friends over to the states for us to stock up on new CHA goodies then back home again to celebrate with a big bouncy castle and lots of chocolate with my boys! :) xxx

Speedtyper said...

Paris...Eiffel Tower with my son (or maybe I better take my sister). :)

DeniseB said...

Disneyland! The happiest place on earth!

Kim said...

I would fly my extended family to Bora Bora where we would spend a week on scuba, snorkeling, jet skis, exploring. All while staying at exclusive over-water bungalows with private staff.

Janelle said...

Hmmm. Not being frivolous, it's a little hard to even think in those terms. I think I'd like to take all my favorite people to Oregon where I grew up and share all my favorite places with them. (And maybe there'd be money leftover for a few new crafting toys?)

BabyBokChoy said...

A Paris, biensur!

Melanie Stanczyk said...

I would take a fun family trip to warm exclusive beach.

and hit a scrapbook store on my way home.

Tricia said...

I would fly my family and my closest friends to a nice island that is reserved solely for us and have a fun weekend together!
