When one thinks of baby showers, visual assaults of storks, diapers, and gendered colors come to mind. But for a masterful lesson in posh party-planning for an expectant mother, look no further than the bash thrown for Moda Operandi Special Projects Director Hayley Bloomingdale (of, yes, that Bloomingdale's). The California fashion scion turned staple on the London society pages celebrated the impending arrival of her daughter with an elegant tea time fete that catered to grownups.

Click through for a peek at a baby shower as chic as the mama-to-be.
