The baby shower for my son was a humble affair: grocery store cake, DIY decorations, a sandwich platter from Publix, and hosted in my living room. The entire thing was planned by my mother and sister, and we had a modest group, a fun game or two, and some lovely presents.

But if I was a celebrity, it would have been far different.

From coordinating food to custom perfume gifts, here are some of the craziest baby shower themes from our favorite celebrity mamas.

Molly Sims and 30 of her closest friends celebrated the birth of her first child without games, but with plenty of other unusual activities. The event planner, Yifat Oren, held the luncheon at her own home in May 2012 that was “girls only” — although Molly's husband, Scott Stuber, made a quick appearance. In addition to a light lunch and presents, guests were asked to write a letter to Molly's unborn child and visit an essential oil station to choose their favorite scent in a bottle while thinking good thoughts.The guests were asked to bring a bead, stone, or trinket that meant something to them, which were later strung together for a necklace that Molly wore to the hospital.

Gwen Stefani celebrated her impending birth in early 2014 with some of her best friends — including Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie, Rachel Zoe and Chelsea Handler. Because Gwen was expecting her third boy, event planner Sharon Sacks planned a very blue fete at the Wolfgang Puck dining room at the Hotel Bel Air. Treats included blue iced donuts, blue and white M&Ms, and a cake that had a baby popping out of a pod.

Alyssa Milano took her love of America's Pastime to another level — she celebrated her baby shower at Dodgers Stadium! The party, which took place in 2011, brought together Alyssa and her husband, David Bugilari's best friends, including Holly Robinson Peete and Colin Hanks. Guests were treated to Dodgers-themed cupcakes from an L.A. Bakery , and Alyssa was gifted the world's tiniest baseball jersey

Is there any doubt Mariah Carey would land on a list of crazy baby showers? The songstress and her husband, Nick Cannon, celebrated their twins in an incredibly lavish style (as is the norm for Mariah Carey … ) The event was held at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel, which was filled to the brim with hundreds of pink and blue balloons. The mama-to-be wore a designer down and oversaw the festivities from a plush chair, while guests noshed on gourmet pizzas, champagne, red velvet cupcakes. The craziest part of the event? The life-sized stuffed giraffes from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. (Ladies, make sure you add that gift to your registry.)

While we're on the subject of over-the-top baby showers, let's talk about Sean “Diddy” Combs fete for girlfriend Kim Porter and their twin girls. The “Little Miss Diddys' Pretty in Pink” shower (because the fanciest parties have names) was held at 230 Fifth bar and restaurant in NYC. The festive party, which included guests like LL Cool J and Jay-Z, included pink themed foods (pink M&Ms and shrimp) and drinks (Perrier Jouet champagne in pink bottles). Again, the big star of this outrageous baby shower was the gifts. Diddy and Kim were gifted a pink and white chandelier from Denzel Washington, custom made changing tables from Jay-Z, and a $1000 toy stroller for the girls. One thing still left on the registry? An $88,000 R-class Mercedes Benz, “for the twins to ride in”. So, that's how you get a Benz!?
