When it came to the celebration for Jillian Harris‘ new baby, son Leo George Tiziano was most definitely star of the show.

“We called it a baby Leo party,” Harris tells PEOPLE exclusively of her Sept. 10 sip and see, honoring her and boyfriend Justin Pasutto‘s son, who was born on Aug. 5. “It wasn’t like a baby shower; it felt like a wedding!”

The fete, organized by CountDown Events Planning & Design with rentals from Avalon Rentals (including gorgeous Pergola Tents by Simon Cooksley), featured blooms by Celsia Florals and custom signs from DeLovely Details.

Adorable balloon displays by Tickle Trunk and Balloon Studio complemented décor by Vintage Origami.

“I was crying as soon as I drove in,” says Harris, 36, a blogger who also hosts Vancouver’s Love it Or List It. “I literally felt like royalty.”

Harris’ friends and family, who received Minted invitations to the co-ed and kid-friendly bash, enjoyed vegan cuisine by Boy with a Knife, as well as cakes and cookies by Le Gateau and Vancouver Pie Hole and sweet treats from Earnest Ice Cream. The over 21 set enjoyed drinks from Postmark Beer and Sandhill Winery.

“The one-man band was amazing,” raves Harris of the tunes from Colin Bullock of Musos Entertainment. “There were kids running around, mingling and it was so special.”

Baby Leo is sure to appreciate the fete too, when he gets a little older. For now, Mama is luxuriating in time with her newborn.

“Leo and I have a bath together every night before he goes to bed,” says Harris. “And every night I cry. I can’t believe this is a part of me and I can’t believe I’m his mom. I’m so happy.”
