Extra, Extra! Inside Savannah Guthrie’s News-Themed Baby Shower

07/09/2014 at 08:00 AM ET

Forget diaper warmers, baby swings and whatever else might have been on the registry. The baby shower fellow newswomen threw for Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie on June 30 was all about her favorite thing: books.

With an “Extra! Extra! Read All About It” vintage newspaper theme, the noontime fête celebrated the mom-to-be’s love of reading as some two dozen guests — Today pals including Natalie Morales, Tamron Hall, Jenna Bush Hager, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, in addition to Amy Robach, Gayle King, Deborah Roberts and others from competing networks — piled a bookshelf in N.Y.C.’s The Glass Houses party space with their favorite children’s books. Each woman brought one book for Guthrie’s baby with husband Mike Feldman and a second to be donated to the charity Baby Buggy for a child in need.

“A lot of people inscribed the books with notes to the baby that were really cute,” Guthrie, 42, told PEOPLE. “It was really personal. I love that.”

David Tutera Celebrates Daughter Cielo’s First Birthday

06/23/2014 at 02:15 PM ET

David Tutera makes his living as an event planner, but he’s never had such an important client — his daughter.

“I’ve done events for celebrities and royalty around the world, and I just told my staff, ‘This is the most important event that I’ve ever had to host in my life,'” Tutera tells PEOPLE of putting together his daughter Cielo‘s first birthday party.

“I had a responsibility to make sure that it was unique, child-like and playful,” he says.

When choosing a theme for the special occasion, Tutera relied on his observations of his young daughter’s current obsessions: bubbles and bunnies.

“As a parent, you pay attention to what your child loves,” Tutera says of deciding on an Alice in Wonderland theme for the Sunday-afternoon fête, which was held in the backyard of his new, Los Angeles-area home. “It was a tea party, which is always great for adults and children.”

Given their over-the-top nuptials, it’s clear that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West know how to throw a great party.

Over the weekend, they did it again, giving daughter North an epic first birthday bash.

Dubbed “Kidchella,” the festivities at Kourtney Kardashian‘s new home — which she recently purchased from Justin Bieber — were “amazing,” according to a source.

“Kim and Kanye made sure it was very special,” the source tells PEOPLE.

Guests, who were given colorful “Kidchella” wristbands (a nod to Coachella, the popular desert music festival), enjoyed the on-site Ferris wheel, teepees, and carts offering churros and lemonade.

“There were many fun activities for the kids,” the source adds. “They had face painting and a stage for singing. All the kids had the best time.”

She may be the designer, but it’s Rebecca Minkoff‘s girlfriends who had her baby bash in the bag.

On June 7, good friends and family showered the handbag connoisseur and her husband Gavin Bellour with love to celebrate the August arrival of their baby girl, whom the couple’s 2½-year-old son Luca Shai has nicknamed Gouda. And the outdoor affair was anything but cheesy.

Held in Brooklyn, the brightly lit “magical” space was filled with fresh flowers from Hops Petunia Floral and Cristina Lozito and pops of gray and soft purple decorations.

“I knew nothing before I arrived so walking in to Fitzcarraldo and seeing all the surprises, friends, family and decor was just amazing,” Minkoff tells PEOPLE of the chic coed fête, which was put together with the help of Rock Paper Scissors Events.
