The Days of our Lives star, who is expecting a son with husband Grant Turnbull in May, celebrated the upcoming addition with a Cinco de Mayo-themed shower on Saturday.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and fun day,” Bjorlin, 35, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and gifts from our friends and family.”
The party was hosted by Bjorlin’s best friend Dilson Schild, sister Kamilla Bjorlin and friend Camryn Kruger at Schild’s home in West Hollywood. Guests dined on fajitas, tacos and quesadillas, with churros, cookies and macaroons for dessert.
Bjorlin and Turnbull were showered with gifts from their family and friends, including a Nuna Mixx stroller and a lavish diaper cake elaborately decorated with toys and clothes.
Guests included Lance Bass and husband Michael Turchin, The Young and the Restless‘ Michelle Stafford and Christian LeBlanc, Days of Our Lives‘ Molly Burnett and Crystal Chappell, and General Hospital‘s Bradford Anderson.
“They say it takes a village, and the village certainly showed up! This is going to be a very loved little boy,” the mom-to-be tells PEOPLE.
Bjorlin announced her pregnancy on Instagram on Thanksgiving Day.
“So many things to be thankful for this year. New beginnings….” she captioned a photo of three pairs of shoes. “Our family is growing by two feet … May, 2016,” the photo read.
