More than 50 guests sat amongst tens of thousands of dollars of flowers in a series of private garden marquees erected especially for the occasion. And the color of choice for the decor — pink, to coincide with the sex of the baby, as was later revealed on E!

The guest list included Nicole Richie, NeNe Leaks, Kelly Osbourne, Maria Menounos, Kimberly Stewart, Mel B and fitness trainer Tracy Anderson.

Guests were given handmade wildflower wreaths to wear on their head!

"Kim and Kanye were so cute – he rubbed her belly," Kardashian's aunt, Karen Houghton, said. "They're just really blessed. It's such a happy day."

The group ate a brunch buffet – pancakes, waffles and fruit – before indulging in a dessert station that included pink cotton candy, pink lollipops and strawberry shortcakes.

32-year-old Kim wore a long, flowy ivory dress with flat sandals. Her hair was styled into three braids with gold ribbons, not that prying shutterbugs hovering above in helicopters were able to notice — as white umbrellas followed around the E! reality star, in an apparent attempt to shield her.

"Kris gave a beautiful champagne toast, where she welcomed Kanye's family and talked about Kim's new chapter in her life, as she choked back tears," a source told

Their partners Scott and Lamar were also in attendance, while Kanye arrived towards the end of the party, a source said, as had previously reported was the plan.

"Kanye's whole family – all the women from his mom's side and dad's side – attended the shower," a source told People.

"Kanye was so excited to have his family be there to join in the celebration with Kim's friends and family."

The 7-bedroom home venue was a change from typical Kardashian baby shower protocol: Kourtney, 34, celebrated both her son Mason and daughter Penelope’s baby showers in the family's Calabasas, Calif., home.

Though Kim and Kanye reportedly requested their guests make donations to charity instead of buying presents for their baby, the couple was still showered with some gifts, many of which were purchased from the high-end West Hollywood, Calif., Bel Bambini boutique.

And as if routine with the Kardashians, cameras rolled at the extravagenza, with scenes expected to feature in E!'s Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which debuted its eighth season on Sunday night.
