You know that phenomenon called the calm before the storm? You're outside and you notice everything seems to go quiet, the air goes still, and all seems peaceful.

Lisa Rinna had no shortage of celebrity guests come out to celebrate her 49th birthday on Thursday night at her and hubby Harry Hamlin's Los Angeles home.

Joined by her usual group of gal pals – including Denise Richards, Maria Menounos, Nancy O'Dell, Holly Robinson Peete, Garcelle Beauvais and Angelina Jolie's stylist Jen Rade – Rinna treated her 30 attendees to a Mexican-themed fiesta produced by Good Carma Studio in her backyard.

Kitchit chef Meg Hall was on hand to present a generous menu, which included shrimp and guacamole tostadas, chorizo-stuffed squash blossoms, shishito peppers and key lime pie shooters.

"Lisa's daughters and dog were in the kitchen a lot," a source tells PEOPLE. "There were some special items made for her daughter Amelia, [who doesn't eat gluten]. The kitchen was the gathering spot for most of the other guests, too. Garcelle and Denise were in there most of the evening, chatting about their kids."

Nancy O'Dell Reveals Daughters First Word: Apple!

All sorts of progress is being made in Nancy O'Dell's household these days: The Access Hollywood co-host, who injured her knee while rehearsing for Dancing with the Stars, is making strides after surgery last month – and her daughter Ashby, 22 months, is learning how to talk.

"Her first word was 'apple,' " says O'Dell, whose book, Full of Life, hit bookstores this week. "I opened the fridge and she pointed at an apple and just blurted it out. I started jumping up and down and screaming and dancing! She must think apple is the most delicious fruit on the planet by my reaction."

After her "apple" epiphany, little Ashby just kept going from there. "Now, she is repeating everything we say like a parrot," says O'Dell. "She loves to say 'I did it' when she completes a task. But my favorite is when she asks me for something and says, 'Mama, peeeaaassse!' It sounds so sweet, I pretty much give her anything she wants."
