What’s the sitch? Christy Carlson Romano‘s pastel pink and gold baby shower!

The Disney Channel alum celebrated her soon-to-arrive baby girl on Saturday alongside close family and friends. Held at the actress’ home in Hollywood Hills, the party was hosted by Good Carma Studio.

The event space was decked out in colors and décor fit for a mini Disney princess — perfect for Romano, since she also played Belle in the Broadway version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 2004.

“The team at Good Carma Studios created a shower that was such a joyful celebration for me,” Romano, 32, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’ve been so busy working, traveling, and planning for our baby that it was amazing to sit back and enjoy the company of my friends.”

Guests included Christine Lakin of Step by Step fame (along with her own baby girl Georgia James, 8 months), Supernatural alum Alona Tal and Kimberly Brown, known for her role as protagonist Marnie Piper in the iconic Disney Channel Original Movie Halloweentown.

To get into the spirit of the royalty-inspired event, attendees were gifted upon their arrival with custom necklaces from Emma J Design and vintage princess-crown hair clips by Ella’s Bows.

Guests enjoyed a La Croix sparkling water bar, with assorted flavors of the popular fizzy beverage and a myriad of colorful fruits — pineapple, pomegranate and blueberries — to add to their glasses.

Refreshments were provided by vegan chef Theresa Rountree, and included garden salad with watermelon radish and candied walnuts, pulled-pork sandwiches, provolone-stuffed risotto balls with lemon sauce, corn cakes with potato black bean hash and roasted vegetables with couscous.

The Bashful Rose designed the gorgeous pastel-rose centerpieces decorating the tables alongside signage and straw tags with Avery‘s online printables, while the impressive spread of desserts — including a mini cupcake tower, custom princess cakes, candy apples and chocolate-covered pretzels — was provided by Polkatots.

In between bites, Romano’s friends and family decorated onesies for the mama-to-be and husband Brendan Rooney‘s first child, who is due on Christmas Day. They also wrote notes with advice for the first-time mom and were treated to foot and hand massages from Manly Handz mobile spa.

“The fact that I got to stuff my face with fantastic desserts and get pampered was also amazing,” the actress tells PEOPLE. “Good Carma Studio couldn’t have thrown me a more personalized or unique event where all my friends could feel comfortable and connected to me before our baby arrives.”

While the former Even Stevens and Kim Possible star was the primary gift receiver at her party, her loved ones didn’t leave empty-handed.

Each guest went home with USANA tote bags full of products from USANA prenatals, Mabel’s Labels, Rockin’ Baby, Sweet N Swag, Munchkin, DockATot and many more baby-friendly brands.

“I am flabbergasted at the serendipity of having a baby on Christmas. It’s our favorite holiday!” PEOPLE blogger Romano said in June. “What a gift we’ll have this year.”

Christmas with the Andersons premieres on Dec. 10 at 9 p.m. on Ion TV and Christmas All Over Again will be available on demand and Blu-Ray on Dec. 13.
