Celebrity mums and celebrity hosts have a knack for throwing outrageous parties, especially when it comes to honoring the impending birth of a celebrity baby. Celebrity baby showers are a great source of tips and ideas to plan and carry out your very own event. Take cue from some of Hollywood’s rich, famous and glamorous pregnant superstars who made sure they host a baby shower that is guaranteed to become the next day’s news headlines.
Most celebrities manage to put together a perfect baby shower by hiring professionals at an astounding cost. But, for a star-struck fan like you, it’s not necessary to spend like a Hollywood luminary to host baby showers in celebrity fashion. By using themes inspired by some of the best celebrity baby showers featured on the media and press, your very own baby shower is bound to become a huge box-office hit among your guests. Here are a few ideas where the colour of the theme says so much.
Pink Tea Baby Party for Victoria Beckham’s Princess
Knowing the gender of the soon-to-be-born baby can help you determine the colours for the bash. When Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria learned that Victoria Beckham is expecting a girl, she threw a pink tea baby party. The pink invitation asked guests to wear pink for the princess-themed shower held at the Beverly Wilshire, where they toasted rose champagne and nibbled pink cupcakes.
Put together the same tea-party style gathering by assembling everything sugar and spice and all things nice fit for a precious baby girl. Set the table in various shades of pink and bring out those vintage cornflower tea cup and saucer collections to serve your menu of vanilla cake pops and pink lemonade. Create a large centerpiece made of ribbons, tissue paper, flowers, balloons – all in pink of course. Set a festive mood by hanging mobile peonies like what Angie Harmon did for her friend Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon.
It’s a Blue Theme for Mariska Hargitay
If you choose blue as the dominant colour to welcome a baby boy on the way, recreate what Mariska Hargitay scripted during her blue-themed shower in New York City. Requests guests to each bring a gift that reveals their personality minus their name. As the expectant mum opens a gift, she guesses who the giver is. For every correct answer, the gift-giver picks the next gift to be opened by the excited parent-to-be.
The Simplicity of White in Beverly Hills
Not all celebrities tend to be loud with colours for there are some who favor the subtle and simple undertone of white. An all-white baby shower is a common theme among celebrities who are expecting twins of both genders and it also works well for both a baby boy or baby girl. The simplicity of white makes it an easy preference for popular personalities who want to focus the spotlight on the upcoming baby like Ciara’s white-themed baby shower in Beverly Hills. If you decorate the room with white balloons and fresh white daisies, carnations and baby’s breath, even a celebrity guest list that includes Kim Kardashian and Lala Anthony cannot upstage the main attraction – your bundle of joy.
Celebrities are like regular parents who will go to great lengths to make sure their baby shower is a blockbuster. Choose from among your circle of fashionable Hollywood icons to get inspiration for your own baby shower and let your revelry be the talk of town as it rocks in true celebrity fashion ala Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, and Julie Roberts, to name a few!
