Christina Aguilera Celebrates Her Whimsical Baby Shower
Christina Aguilera‘s genie in a bottle made her Midsummer Night’s Dream come true!
Joined by 50 close family and friends, Aguilera — who is expecting her first child with fiancé Matthew Rutler — wore Tees by Tina’s Lattice Maxi Dress ($120) and set the scene with Moroccan pillow seating stations, candles and soft lights strung throughout the backyard.
“It was a really beautiful, fun night,” a guest tells PEOPLE of the whimsical evening, which included romantic flower wreaths for Aguilera and her female guests to wear in their hair.
“Everybody gave toasts and Christina gave a speech about how she felt so much love,” the guest adds. “She thanked everyone for supporting her and said how excited she was to have a baby girl. It was a really sweet night.”
In between traditional shower games (guests used a string to guess the size of the singer’s belly!), everyone sipped pink Veuve rosé champagne and Mommy Moonshine, a concoction of moonshine, watermelon or strawberry and Suja organic fruit juice.
And while many of her guests won’t be at Aguilera’s side during her delivery, they all got a sneak peek at what’s to come when her creative confection was brought out — complete with a frosting topper design of her giving birth.
