Blake Lively

Blake had a Pinterest-worthy spread with close friends and family surrounding her when she was pregnant with her first baby, James, in 2014. The fall shower had a very boho-vintage vibe with pretty paper parasails, antique-y place settings and onesie tie-dying.

Victoria Beckham

After three boys, Victoria Beckham reportedly didn't care what her baby shower for daughter Harper involved, as long as there were lots of pink gifts!

Eva Longoria and hairstylist to the stars Ken Paves hosted the English-garden-tea-party-themed shower at the Butterfly Bar on the rooftop of Hotel Le Petit Ermitage, in Hollywood, California. The venue was decorated with pink tablecloths, pink flowers and white umbrellas. And the dessert was "girlie" as can be: a princess cake with marzipan. Celeb attendees included Eva Longoria, Ken Paves, Nicole Richie and Selma Blair.

Fergie had two baby showers when she was pregnant with baby Axl: one hosted by her family and another "GayBy shower" hosted by friends.

This fabulous Instagram pic of Fergie, Jamie Foxx and friends was posted from the Gayby shower: "Thanx #jamiefoxx 4 the surprise visit," she captions the photo, "& 2@DAVEOPHILLY & @SLSHotels 4 the most fab#GaybyShower ever." Also in attendance? Fergie's Black Eyed Peas buddies and, of course (Taboo couldn't make it). 

The family shower was a relatively laid-back affair. Check out the pic she shared of herself and a family member with a plate of pasta salad, fruit and edible initials "B.F."—thanking "Pam" (her best friend?) for hosting.

Lauren Silverman (Simon Cowell)

'Twas an English-tea-party-themed shower for Laura Silverman, thrown by her English boyfriend—none other than X Factor's Simon Cowell—in the back garden of his Beverly Hills abode.

Simon helped organize the event but, like a good dad-to-be, left before it began. Food included mini sandwiches, cakes, and tea—or wine and champaign for those able to drink. Celebs in attendance included two of Simon's former girlfriends: Mezhgan Hussainy and Terri Seymour.

Simon and Lauren recently welcomed son Eric. Check out the baby pics Simon shared here.

According to Us, there were around 60 guests at the party, including celebs Courteney Cox, Jennifer Meyer Maguire (Tobey's wife and the shower's cohost), Rachel Zoe, and Nicole Richie and her kids.
