For a California girl, Whitney Port‘s bridal shower theme was the perfect fit.

Port — who is engaged to former The City associate producer Tim Rosenman — was treated by her mom and sisters to a surprise California casual-inspired party last Friday.

The shower featured a create-your-own succulent terrarium bar hosted by Fleurish and simple, but stylish decorations — including flowers and napkins with neon orange accents — were placed throughout the venue, Los Angeles restaurant Madera Kitchen.

“I just wanted something … easy, nothing too over the top,” Port tells PEOPLE about her shower, which was attended by 25 of the reality star’s family members and girlfriends, including former The City costar Roxy Olin.

Guests feasted on heavy passed appetizers including tuna poke, burrata crostini, albacore tapenade and marinated heirloom tomatoes, along with Martini & Rossi cocktails based off of Port’s favorite ingredients. (See below for the delicious recipes).

For dessert, Port’s favorite Sweet Lady Jane’s Triple Berry Shortcake was served.

Guests were also gifted Paper Epiphanies‘ hand letter-pressed cards, with fun quotes like “D— straight I got it from my momma.”

Port’s fiancé — who popped the question in 2013 with a rose-gold, oval-cut diamond stunner — and his dad joined the party for a newlywed game later on in the evening.

As for the couple’s upcoming wedding, Port, 30, told PEOPLE “it’s really glamorous.”

“At first, I had so many ideas for my wedding like I thought I was going to go to Mexico and do a beachy thing and then I thought I was going to go to Northern California and do a rustic-y thing,” she explained. “And what I landed on, it is a destination, but it’s just going to be a lot more formal and glamorous than I ever thought that I would do.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
