Candy Spelling Throws $40,000 Baby Shower for Daughter Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling’s mum Candy Spelling threw her the most lavish baby shower to celebrate the actress’ fifth pregnancy to husband Dean McDermott.
The stunning event was held at the iconic Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles and judging by the photos no expense was spared!
“Such an honor to host @torispelling baby shower,” Candy captioned a snap of the gorgeous table settings on Instagram. “Tori’s fifth! #babyshowers #candygram #torispelling#family #grandkids”
The party was co-ordinated by celebrity party planner Mindy Weiss who managed to fulfill one of her party deco dreams.
“Loving our baby shower today! My dream to have a moving train go around the table!” Weiss wrote alongside a video of the moving train on Instagram.

The table settings also featured miniature first-aid kits, baby blue velvet napkins, plenty of flowers and coffee cups, “cause there’ll be no sleeping in that home!”
A fireplace was decorated with alphabet building blocks spelling out “Baby McDermott,” while the ceiling was lined with blue balloons.
A source close to Spelling says the 71 year old would’ve spent in excess of $40,000 for the afternoon celebration.
“A diet soda there can set you back $10, so can you imagine the cost of renting out their main restaurant for four hours on Grammy weekend for a party,” the source continued.
Guests were offered blue-coloured lemonade served in baby bottles and wrapped in a tiny nappy. The entire venue was decorated with hundreds of blue balloons and the floral arrangements were just stunning!
The actress was there with hubby and their four children — Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5 and Finn, 4.
It’s no secret the mother and daughter haven’t always gotten along, but the pair recently reconciled just in time for baby number five.
“Candy is obviously excited about this new addition to the family and made sure Tori had a very special day,” continues the source.
Spelling recently teased her fans on Instagram by announcing the arrival of a new family member- which wasn’t their baby at all! It was in fact a miniature pig called Nutmeg.
Well played Tori!
