Entrepreneur and Reality Tv star Khloe Kardashian threw a lavish neutral-colored bear themed baby shower for her BFF, actress and model Malika Haqq, over the weekend.

The event was held at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss organized the luxe celebration.

The mom-to-be wore a muted strappy floor length fish tail, bump-hugging jersey dress with her hair pulled back in a sleek ponytail and subtle and soft makeup.

Guests included family and friends and fellow celebs like Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Tamar Braxton, Don’t Be Tardy’s Brielle Biermann and her mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann and others. Haqq’s twin sister Khadijah Haqq was also on hand.

Attendees were treated to goodies like sweet honey tea in adorable bear jars,petite pastries, a multi-tiered cake  and cereal because according to Khloe in an insta story video, Malika craved cereal for most of her pregnancy.

They also played typical baby shower games like the “can’t say ‘baby’” game, the guess Malika’s baby belly girth and the guess the baby’s delivery date and guess the number of cookies in the jar game.

They went home with cute favors like baby bottle shaped bottle openers.

Malika is expecting a baby boy, the first child with her on-again-off-again boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis.

“A BEARy beautiful Baby Shower!!” Khloe captioned a series of photos of the event. “I have been planning Malika’s baby shower in my head for quite some time. Malika was very specific with not wanting color. So this was the only color we were able to get away with LOL It turned out beautifully!”

Everyone wore brown, white and other muted and neutral colors to the event to accommodate Malika’s request.

“I could not thank @mindyweiss @andrew_mindyweiss @jeffleatham enough!!” Khloe added thanking the event planning staff. “I know I’m a lot at times because I’m so specific and I love to micro manage but you guys always go over the top. You surpass any dream that I have ever conjured up in my head as to how I want something to look. Every time I am WOWED by your work and perfection! Thank you guys for being the best! You literally are my dream team! Thank to everyone who helped put this spectacular shower together!”

Here are some videos and photos of the fun event that the  host, guests and vendors posted on their respective social media pages



 

Inside Tia Mowry’s Bohemian Farmtable Baby Shower

This weekend actress and author Tia Mowry Hardrict and her husband Cory Hardrict celebrated the impending arrival of their second child, a daughter, at a Bohemian and “whimsical” themed Farm table baby shower at the Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The Sister, Sister and The Game alum enlisted the help of celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss  who incorporated pink florals, wooden place mats, and twinkling lights at the intimate evening affair.

The mom-to-be of the hour wore a coral lace maxi dress to the event also attended by her 6 1/2 year old son Cree Taylor, her sister Tamera Mowry-Housley, and brothers Taj  and Tavior.

“I’m literally still on a high from my baby shower,” the Instant Mom alum told PEOPLE about her March 31st celebration. “We chose the boho theme mainly because my husband and I have been looking at a couple of names and have been narrowing down. And we felt like her name fit that theme…So we wanted to give some sort of tribute to her already. Cory and I also love the boho styles and everything. It made a lot of sense. The baby shower was in theme with her name.”

 

They didn’t share what the baby’s name will be but did reveal that her initials will be CTH, same as her son’s.

“I learned my lesson, so many people have so many opinions and this is kind of just between you and your husband,” she told the celebrity site. “I’m definitely going to wait, but we did play a game where guests can guess the baby’s name. And some of them were pretty close.”

“It was so incredibly beautiful. It was family and friends, it was all intimate. Whenever Cory and I throw a party, we always love it to be intimate,” Mowry-Hardrict explains. “We don’t really look for really big rooms, we look for rooms where people when they sit down they’re gonna have to talk to each other. It’s all about the experience. I’m such a nurturer at heart and it’s like, ‘Yes I want to have a great time,’ but it’s all about everyone else celebrating this amazing moment. Everyone getting in on this celebration so it was full of love and full of tears.”

Tia revealed that her husband was instrumental for including some of the surprises at the event.

“My husband surprised me, I had no idea. He had Kenny Lattimore come and sing. It was special for me because Kenny Lattimore sang at our wedding. He sang ‘For You’ which is the song I walked down the aisle to,” she says of the special song that also commemorated their 10-year anniversary, which is April 20. “Cory wanted to surprise me with his present. I walked into the room and gasped like, ‘What is happening here?’ and just sang the song. There was not a dry eye in the room. It was just so amazing. It was just wonderful.”

The event was made even more special because of the struggles the couple had to conceive their second child.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to have a second child, and it’s been over seven years since my first pregnancy… I put it off, but I did want to have another child,” she shared to PEOPLE earlier. “I didn’t let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life. We did try for a long time. It was hard. But I didn’t give up.”

Her husband Cory recently opened up to ESSENCE about his undying love for his pregnant wife:

“I could go on forever talking about my wife [but] I will make sure that I will always do anything that she wants and needs at the drop of a finger to make sure she’s happy… It’s just like how I live my everyday life. [Even] when y’all don’t see that, that’s still what happens in the house. I’m rubbing her feet, running her a bath, doing whatever I can to make sure she’s okay.”

Altogether now….Awwwww!

Inside Tamera Mowry-Housley’s Baby Shower (PHOTOS)

Celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss did a superb job planning Tamera Mowry-Housley‘s baby shower which took place at the Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica, California last Saturday, April 4.

It was truly a girly affair (the theme) and according to PEOPLE magazine, Mowry-Housley decided to relinquish all control to Weiss to organize the entire thing and was blown away at the end product.

Guests included Mowry-Housley’s co-hosts on The Real: Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton Herbert and Jeanie Mai; her twin sister Tia Mowry Hardrict  of course and their actor brother Tahj Mowry.

The table decorations were awe-some. I loved the fact they were designed to look like tu-tus! How girly indeed!. The floral arrangement were to die for!

Guests were also treated to pink Essie nail polish and a feminine pink headband. How cute.

The shower cake from Joan and Leigh’s cakes was made like an oven, complete with a bun in it! So fun!

Loved that the invitations matched the party decor, but oopsie on the misspelling of the Housley’s son, Aden, who they welcomed in November 2012.

Guests went home with goodie bags filled with chocolate eggs, PEOPLE  reported.

It looked like an exquisite, ornate and decadent affair! Well done Mindy and congrats to Mowry-Housley and her husband FOX News correspondent Adam Housley, expecting their second child weeks from now.
