Christie Brinkley, 54, threw a big party for daughter Sailor’s, summertime birthday! (Sailor turns 10 on July 2nd.)
On Tuesday, the Christie spent the morning at her Hamptons home filling more than 35 goody bags for her pint-sized guests and putting the finishing touches on the homemade cake she made for Sailor’s party later that day.
“She’s doing what she’s always done,” says a source close to Christie. “She’s putting her children first.”
On Wednesday, Peter Cook also threw Sailor and her friends a party.
Christie threw what one friend calls “a relaxed backyard birthday party” at her Sag Harbor, N.Y., home.
“The whole event was fun low-key and warm,” said the friend. “Christie was out in the yard, barefoot in her T-shirt and Capris, making sure everybody was having fun. She’s not the type who would hire Hannah Montana to come and perform at the party.”
Sailor and her friends – children from both classes in her grade and other Hamptons pals – spent the day jumping in and out of Christie’s pool, running around the yard in their bathing suits and “taking endless turns on the inflatable slippy slide” Christie placed in the yard for them.
The most memorable part of the day came when Christie and the kids chased each other with whipped cream pies. “She was at the center of the pie throwing contest,” shared the friend. “One boy was chasing her and trying to get her in the face. She was running and laughing. You would never know the cloud she’s under.”
