Inside Whitney Port's California Casual Bridal Shower
Whitney Port celebrates her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Tim Rosenman – who popped the question in 2013 – with a surprise bridal shower in Los Angeles on Oct. 16. For the party, Port wore an Asilio dress paired with Sophia Webster pumps, which featured 'Wifey for Lifey' written on the soles, and Luna Skye jewelry. "I just wanted something fun and cute and lacy and white," Port told PEOPLE.
The 30-year-old's mom and sisters – from left: Paige, Vicki, Ashley and Jade Port – planned the entire shower. Says the Hills alum: "I left it up to them. I just wanted something [that was] California casual, easy nothing too over the top."
The party – held at Los Angeles restaurant Madera Kitchen – featured simple flowers and napkins with a neon orange accent.
Guests enjoyed heavy tray passed appetizers including an albacore tapenade dish, which features sesame oil and crispy onions served on a cucumber boat.
NEVER TOO MUCH FOOD
Another delicious dish on Port's bridal shower menu: marinated heirloom tomato composed of grilled bread, roasted corn, smoked mozzarella and basil.
Guests were treated to Martini & Rossi mini bottles along with two signature cocktails – The Refresher and Garden Bellini – based on Port's favorite ingredients.
THE CITY REUNION
Port celebrated with 25 of her family members and girlfriends including former The City costar Roxy Olin. Port's fiancé and his dad also joined the party later in the evening to play a newlywed game.
Keeping with the California casual-inspired theme, guests created their own succulent terrariums hosted by Fleurish for a fun bridal party activity.
Along with the DIY succulent terrariums, guests took home Paper Epiphanies' hand letter-pressed cards.
