Knocked Up actress Katherine Heigl and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, enjoyed a holiday-themed baby shower over the weekend. The Grey’s Anatomy alum, 38, gave an inside look into the beautiful bash on her blog, Those Heavenly Days.
“My mother very graciously threw Josh and I the most beautiful and celebratory baby shower last weekend,” Heigl wrote. “She asked me for some direction on the decor and the vibe I was hoping for, so I headed straight to Pinterest to cultivate a look for the shower that spoke to not only the holidays, but also our mountain home in Utah where the baby will be born.”
The actress’ mom, who gave a “heartfelt toast,” included invitations with a “classic Stork” theme, decorated with winter white bouquets and a Christmas tree, and featured rustic table settings with rattan place mats, shed deer antlers, pinecones and white gourds.
Guests noshed on appetizers, cake, sugar cookies, and sipped holiday-inspired cocktails at an open bar.
“I’ve had quite the sweet tooth throughout this pregnancy so the cake was also pretty significant to me,” the actress wrote. “I found some perfect examples of the kind of simple beauty I was looking for and then told the bakers to make sure the frosting was not only decorative but delicious too. They nailed it!”
Heigl and Kelley – who are expecting a son – are already parents to daughters Naleigh, 8, and Adalaide, 4.
“Not only did I absolutely love how beautifully everything turned out but I could not have been more grateful for all my friends, family and co-workers who showed up to shower us with good wishes and support,” she wrote of her Doubt colleagues, including Laverne Cox.
She added: “It was a magical night full of love, laughter great food, holiday cheer and anticipation for the new life we are about to welcome into our world. It is truly a magical time of year to be welcoming in new life and celebrating God’s hope for us, his faith in us, and his unconditional love. It is how all us parents feel about our children and Josh and I are no exception!”
