Celeb Baby Shower Bonanza: Snooki, Jwoww & Chelsea Clinton and More!
Stars—they're just like us! And that means that when there's a baby on the way, they celebrate in a big way. Recently, Chelsea Clinton, Savannah Guthrie, Snooki, and Jwoww shared the details of their baby showers—how do they compare to your celebration?
They picked elaborate themes. Snooki's shower featured a grand "Great Gatsby" theme, and she (and several other guests) sported fascinators and flapper-esque ensembles to fit with the party.
They invited the guys. Former President Bill Clinton and Chelsea's husband Mark Mezvinsky both made appearances at Chelsea Clinton's celebration.
They hired entertainment. Jwoww's shower featured a drag queen emcee to keep the crowd entertained.
The gift opening happened elsewhere.Chelsea Clinton's shower featured lots of celebrating, but the mom-to-be took home her bounty and opened the onesies and strollers in the privacy of her home.
They turned a "sprinkle" into a full-on fete. In the past, moms-to-be usually saved lavish showers for their first-born, with very small (or no) celebrations for future children. But perhaps Snooki's part of a trend to celebrate every baby's arrival. (And really, doesn't every baby deserve a party?)
They planned a menu perfect for the mom-to-be. Chelsea Clinton's gluten-free menu meant she could enjoy any of the goodies offered at the celebration.
They asked their guests to provide gifts for those who really need them. At Savannah Guthrie's totally cute shower guests were asked to bring one book for her baby, and one to be donated for those who may have a harder time stocking their bookshelves. Because let's face facts: Savannah can probably swing a pretty nice stroller.
