Mom-to-be Ellen Pompeo was joined by 25 friends, including Kate Walsh, Sandra Oh and Rebecca Gayheart, for a baby shower held Saturday afternoon at Katherine Heigl‘s home in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles.
Ellen and her husband Chris Ivery are expecting a baby daughter in October.
As an eyewitness told PEOPLE, “Ellen looked gorgeous in a white summer dress with her hair in a braided up-do. She seemed very excited to celebrate with her girlfriends.”
The catered, outdoor baby bash was held in the backyard. Umbrellas shielded guests from the heat — L.A. temps reached 104 degrees Saturday — and pink flower arrangements and candles accented the tables.
Guests brought gifts wrapped in girly pink and yellow colors. Many of the gifts – which included a Sleep Sheep toy mobile, Sleepy Safari stacking toys, organic hooded towels and a Kiddopotamus organic swaddle wrap – came from the Juvenile Shop in Sherman Oaks, where Ellen is registered.
