Inside Tori Spelling's Back-to-School BBQ

Guests, including Tori and Dean's children Stella and Liam, snacked on CRUMBS Bake Shop mini cupcakes during the Back-to-School party hosted by Tori Spelling and Sony α NEX Cameras.

The Guncles (Bill Horn & Scout Masterson) from Tori and Dean’s show, "Home Sweet Hollywood," brought their adopted baby (Simone Lynn Masterson) to share in the fun.

Lemonade drinks satisfied the guests' thirst in the hot weather while the children took breaks from swimming in the pool to draw on the blackboards with chalk. Maria Menounos showed up with her parents, just a day before she hosted the Emmys!

The event was Tori's last big party to celebrate the summer before their children Stella and Liam head back to school.


  • The kids munched on these mini cupcakes from CRUMBS when taking breaks from playing and swimming. The primary colors are perfect for a back-to-school celebration!
  • While the children enjoyed lemonade, the adults were treated to another summer staple - sangria! How perfect are the mini chalkboard labels for this party?
  • We created a casual, chic space in Tori's yard using furniture from inside and patio umbrellas. Don't be afraid to turn your party inside out! Lounge spaces are a popular party trend and this was an easy choice for this laid-back end of summer party.
  • We took the lounge space a step further and allotted a couple of special spots for the children to play: one table under the umbrella and a picnic blanket with throw pillows under the tree. Parents were able to enjoy themselves and keep an eye on the kids at the same time in their own space.
  • Guests at Tori's party included daughter Stella, seen here with mom. Bathing suits and swimmies were mandatory attire for fun in the pool!
  • Tori's son Liam!
