    Jessica Alba's Baby Bash

    As if winning the genetic lottery wasn't enough, Baby Alba just scored big time in the swag department.

    Some of Mama Jessica's friends and family descended upon Ever After Teahouse in Studio City Sunday for a baby shower.

    About 35 people made it through a gauntlet of paparazzi to get to the party, including Rashida Jones, Jaime King and Kim Kardashian, who told E! News her gift included "stuff from my store, Smooch."

    Guests began trickling in at 1 p.m., and Alba made her entrance at exactly 1:30, wearing a long black dress and black glasses, with her hair down. She was hustled in via a side entrance.

    The shower took place outside, under white umbrellas. Lavender and white dominated the decor, and the soundtrack was definitely on the mellow side, featuring Buena Vista Social Club, Sade and light jazz.

    The menu included white wine, lemonade, iced tea and coffee and an assortment of ice cream drinks; skewers of tiger shrimp and soft-pulled chicken; and for dessert, white and dark chocolate-dipped strawberries, mini doughnut varietals, mini custard tarts and mini eclairs.

    Attendees received large turquoise goodie bags.

    At 1:45 p.m., Alba began unwrapping a stack of presents, including high-end strollers and cradles, and baskets full of Dr. Seuss books, rattles and clothes. There was a giant white stuffed bunny and lots of flower bouquets.

    Many of the clothes were a gender-neutral yellow or green; however, Alba told guests she was expecting a girl in June.

    As she exited, Jones told E! News, "It was fun. Great cupcakes." Added Kardashian: "It was awesome."

    Baby daddy Cash Warren arrived about an hour and a half after the party started, entering via back alley, and just in time to help haul off all the loot.
