Inside Kendra Wilkinson's Cute & Charming Baby Shower
Kendra Wilkinson (here in Isabella Oliver's Vienna T-Shirt dress paired with a Posh Mommy's ) has Playmate pal Jessica Hall (left) to thank for hosting the April 19 bash at her house. "The thought of a baby shower the second time around, I was like no, I don't really want one. But we made it very fun, we didn't make it so serious," the star, who welcomed a daughter on May 16, told PEOPLE.
Why a sprinkle instead of a shower? "I don't need any gifts, and I just wanted it to be light-hearted. I feel like everybody kind of made it more about me, and I felt it was very different than the first time," explained the expectant reality star.
The drink station, which aptly featured pink sugar-rimmed bottles, kept the mom-to-be's guests happy – and a little tipsy! "It was more like a bachelorette party than it was a baby shower," said Wilkinson. "All my friends were drunk, we had all this alcohol there and we had massages from these amazing, hot men (thanks to Manly Handz). It was just fun."
Full of all-organic appetizers including grilled tofu and veggie skewers, the gourmet buffet was created by Paleta. "It was beautifully set up," said Wilkinson. "Trust me, food has been good to me, but I need it to go down easily so [the options] were perfect."
Bashful Rose designed this spring-themed floral arrangement. And since the event was a day before Easter, the bunny made of grass was the perfect touch.
When it came to the decorations, event organizers Good Carma Studio didn't leave any stone unturned. Even the berry-filled letter food trays spelled out "BABY."
Although the mom-to-be insisted she didn't want gifts, she couldn't help but giggle over the tiny tutus and Tupac onesie she received. "I just like to have fun, I'm not a serious person. And I love hip hop, and that Tupac onesie was it," she shared. "That's exactly what I was hoping for during this sprinkle." Actually, no one went home empty handed! Wilkinson thanked everyone with a gift card to Stride Rite Shoes and goody bags labeled with Mabel’s Labels personalized tags.
"Babies are sweet so please take some treats" read the sign next to the frilly-frosted cake and cupcakes made by Polkatots. And just like the neutral colors of the desserts, Wilkinson said her new baby's name won't be girlie at all. "It is a unisex name. It's a name that you haven't really heard before. You've heard it on boys. There's a boy in Hollywood that has it, and I'm not gonna tell you who, but you haven't really heard it on a girl."
Flowers lined every corner of the bash, including the mini candy buffet created by Candy Me Up.
