Tamara Ecclestone had a "totally perfect" baby shower.

The Formula 1 heiress was thrown a lavish pink-themed party by her younger sister Petra Ecclestone on March 1 to celebrate the impending arrival of her first child with her husband Jay Rutland.

She told the new issue of HELLO! magazine: "It was all pink and totally perfect. There were pink and white sofas, a barman mixing special pink cocktails, a four-tier cake and photos of me as a baby. Petra had thought of absolutely everything - my favourite chocolate crepes, amazing pastries, sweets with the words 'Bun in the oven' written on them, and personalised love hearts saying 'Baby girl'.

"She'd also compiled amazing goodie bags containing a pink nail polish she'd made up for me, called 'Tamara's knocked up'. I loved it all."

Tamara - who is expecting a girl - was joined by her sisters Petra and Slavica, as well as 20 of her closest friends, for the plush party at exclusive venue The Orangery at Kensington Palace, London, which was decked out with roses, cushions, cakes and candles for the occasion and she was thrilled by the effort her sibling made.

The 29-year-old socialite added: "Petra has impeccable taste and is a perfect party planner. She went to so much effort to make sure it would a wonderful occasion and she got everything spot on. Even the baby shower invitations - a gold rattle inside a pink box - that she sent out to my closest family and friends were just right.

"But I had no idea of the details of the day except what time I had to be ready, where I was going and that I had to wear an outfit with a hint of pink. I was so excited the night before, I could hardly sleep."

Guests also took part in a special game of Pin The Tail on The Donkey, which involved blindfolded pals attempting to stick a mock-up image of Tamara's unborn baby on a giant photo of her proudly showing off her bump.
