Pin It! 10 Inspiring Celeb Baby Showers Of 2014

2014 was the year for upping the celebrity baby shower ante. Kourtney Kardashian’s posh Breakfast at Tiffany’s-themed baby shower was so nice, she did it twice, celebrating a second time at IHOP. Meanwhile Blake Lively’s nature-themed shower doubled as a pregnancy announcement (surprise!). See all the celebrations that took our breath away.

Blake Lively

Actress-turned-lifestyle maven Blake Lively posted photos of her rustic and whimsical fall baby shower on her Preserve websitein October.  The event was gender neutral, since she and Ryan Reynolds are keeping their baby's gender a surprise.

Danielle Jonas

Designed by celebrity event planner Michael Russo, Danielle and Kevin Jonas's Mary Poppins-themed extravaganza was playful and cheerful. From the striped invitations to the pink chevron tablecloths, it was the perfect way to celebrate the impending arrival of baby girl Alena Rose.

Alas, umbrella-shaped centerpieces didn’t come with magical nannies.

Her colorful cake, however, included silhouettes of the famous, flying nanny.

Gwen Stefani

Stefani debuted her third baby bump with a dazzling blue gown on the red carpet, so it only made sense that her baby shower for Apollo Bowie Flynn incorporated different shades of the hue too.

The blue and cream-colored shower, designed by celebrity event planner Sharon Sacks, was held at the posh Hotel Bel-Air. Sweet treats included blue-frosted doughnuts and candy.

Kaley Cuoco

Since nobody throws a party quite like Cuoco, the star was thrilled to host the most luxurious baby shower for her longtime makeup artist and best friend, Jamie Greenberg. She's expecting a boy named Simon (who had his name carved into an ice sculpture!).

Not only was there a spa station with masseuses and manicurists, but there was also a lounge area for pampered guests who wore customized waffle robes, of course.

Kourtney Kardashian

The eldest Kardashian celebrated the upcoming birth of her second baby boy (and third child) with a stylish Breakfast at Tiffany’s-themed baby shower. Thrown by sisters Kim and Khloe, the Kardashian family and their friends gathered at the Conservatory at the Montage for an elegant Tiffany-blue brunch.

Besides munching on sweet breakfast treats like croissants and fruit, the mom-to-be channeled Audrey Hepburn with a sparkly tiara worn backwards.

And from fancy to rolling right out of bed, Kardashian celebrated with friends at another, much more low-key baby shower: a pajama party at IHOP! This time she swapped her LBD and girly tiara for a cozy red hoodie and a pair of fuzzy devil horns.

While Kardashian’s friends supplied a pretty white cake and candy table decor, she still went for a signature IHOP hot chocolate topped off with a dollop of whipped cream.

Rebecca Minkoff

When fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff and her husband Gavin Bellour celebrated the impending arrival of baby girl Bowie Lou, the cheese aficionados went for an unexpected (yet totally stylish) Gouda-themed shower.

23

The shower was held at Fitzcaraldo and showcased the rustic Brooklyn venue’s casual outdoor seating and whimsical lighting.

24

Cheerful blue and lavender "Baby Gouda" decor matched the equally cute (and non-cheesy!) Gouda gift bags.

25

Savannah Guthrie

When TODAY show host Savannah Guthrie and her husband Mike announced they were expecting baby girl Vale, what was more fitting than a newspaper-themed shower? All of the NBC ladies came to celebrate and were camera-ready with fun props.

26

Striped straws livened up cute mocktails served at the bash.

27

Adorable overload! Sushi appetizers hung out with rubber duckies on polka-dot serving trays.

28

How amazing is this? Instead of serving dessert on a table, Guthrie’s shower featured a wall of hanging donuts.

Kendra Wilkinson

In anticipation of her second baby (and first girl) Alijah Mary, Wilkinson had a "sprinkle" produced by Good Carma Studio at a friend's residence. She was also gifted with a POSH Mommy personalized "We Love You Mommy" necklace during the party.
