Would You Incorporate Rachel Bilson’s Baby Shower Tradition Into Your Own?

It's not like we weren't already obsessed with Rachel Bilson's maternity style, but now she one-upped her style factor with a very special new necklace.

The Hart of Dixie star had her baby shower on August 31 at a private home in Los Angeles, where she was surrounded by her closest friends, including Natalie Portman and Jaime King. (Two of the coolest celeb moms around, might I add. Did my invite get lost in the mail?)

Anyway, Rachel did something super-sweet at her shower that we love (that's also seen at mother's blessing parties).

"Instead of gifts, everyone brought a birth bead,"Us Weekly reported. "Each person gave her a piece of advice and a blessing along with the bead. She will use the beads for strength during labor."

The former OC star will strand all the beads into a necklace and wear during labor to give her positive vibes from all of her friends and family members.

Her guests took home adorable favors, too: a box of mints and tea with a tag that said, "Rachel & Baby, Mint to Be."

Do you love the idea of asking for birthing beads at your baby shower?
