      For most little girls, a cake will suffice for her sixth birthday. But not so for Gracie, whose mother Nicole spent a staggering $32,000 on her birthday party.
  对于大多数小女孩来讲,一块生日蛋糕就是对自己六岁生日的最好纪念。但对于小格雷西可不是这样,因为妈妈妮可为了给她举办生日宴会竟然花掉了32000美元!
      The astonishing costs include $3,000 on invitations, and $2,100 on a nine-tier cake. Nicole also splashed out one Cinderella carriage and actors to play jugglers and jesters in keeping with the medieval princess theme. Gracie was even treated to a day of spa treatments the day before the party.
  这项令人吃惊的开销中,3000美元用于制作请柬,2100美元则花在了一个九层蛋糕上。此外,妮可还给自己的女儿购置了一辆灰姑娘坐的那种四轮马车,还雇佣演员们表演杂耍扮演小丑,使得生日宴会充满了中世纪公主的调调。而在宴会前一天,小格雷西还做了一天的水疗。
 
  Nicole said: "This is going to be a fairytale fantasy party for her because she is still in that prime age where she still believes in fairytales."
  妮可说:“对于格雷西来说,这将是一个童话般的梦幻宴会,因为她正处于对童话笃信不疑的黄金年龄。”
 
      It was anything but a fairytale for Gracie's older brother, Parker, who was bribed $100 to dress up in a medieval costume and hand-deliver the 200 guests' invitations. Gracie's father, Jason, who was made to dress up as a king for the event, said: "This is not a normal party."
  而对于格雷西的哥哥帕克而言,这可绝不是什么童话故事。生日宴会上,他不得不接受了100美元的贿赂,身着中世纪戏服传送200个来宾的请柬。格雷西的父亲贾森在宴会上也被迫穿上了国王的服装,他说:“这简直不正常。”
 
  But even this was not enough to impress young Gracie, who rejected her lavish birthday cake because the bird design was purple, not blue. "She's a bit of a perfectionist," Nicole explained.
  即便是这样,格雷西还是没能完全如愿,她拒绝吃那个奢华的生日蛋糕,因为上面小鸟的颜色是紫色的,而非蓝色。“这个孩子有点完美主义,”妮可解释称。
