You’ll Totally Want to Copy Serena Williams’ 1950’s-Themed Baby Shower

Mom-to-be Serena Williams celebrated the upcoming birth of her little one with a "Shake, Rattle, and Roll" themed baby shower, where guests including future aunt Venus Williams, Eva Longoria, Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, and Ciara came dressed in classic 1950s style -- poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and all -- to party vintage style. Williams wore a yellow skirt with black-and-white polka dot trim, a cropped black top, a string of oversized pearls, and a red hairband, while the dad-to-be, fiance Alexis Ohanian, sported jeans, a white t-shirt, and a leather jacket.

Preparing for our greatest adventure yet.

An antique red truck served as the backdrop for many of the group shots, while photos from inside the party show signs reading "Baby O's Diner" over an aqua-colored bar with red stools, red and black chairs, a black-and-white tiled floor, and a jukebox. The Instagram tag -- #shakerattleandroll2017 -- shows other details from the day: custom chalkboards, one-of-a-kind paper crafts, and favor boxes topped with cardstock cutouts of pink poodles (instead of storks) carrying swaddled babies.
