Actress Kate Hudson attended the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball in New York City yesterday. Hudson wore a blue strapless Reem Acra number, and hung out with pals Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow. At the bash, Hudson also talked plans about her 34th birthday celebration. The actress explained for Us Weekly that she’d prefer a small gathering at home with close friends: "I think I might have a dinner at some point this week," Hudson said of her low-key plans. "I just want to hang with my family."

She also predicted the gift she might receive from her 9-year-old son, Ryder – it might be jewelry, but a far cry from a glitzy Tiffany piece: "Ryder makes things, so he's made me this beautiful tree out of sticks, and he took shells and painted them and made them the leaves of the tree. He's quite an artist, so he made me and painted butterflies and gave them to me," she said of past presents. "And he likes to make me jewelry. He's made me some bracelets that are just adorable!"

Kate has been keeping it casual around her boys, but she glammed up for the ball last night. 

 We’re sure Kate wears them with pride anyway. Continuing on the family topic, she also talked to the magazine about her Mother’s Day plans, of which she really has none to speak of: "We'll have to see what they come up with,” she said, referring to her two sons and her husband, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy.
