Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson Celebrate Engagement

The happy couple gathered with friends and family to toast their upcoming marriage

Engaged less than a week, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are still partying it up in celebration. The singer-actress and her football beau were joined by friends and family Thursday night for a party in their honor.

About 40-50 guests filled Simpson's parents' house in Encino, where they nibbled on hamburger and veggie sliders, chicken skewers, mini pizzas, shrimp and, for dessert, mini cupcakes.

On hand to help the beaming couple celebrate, of course, were Jessica's sister Ashlee and her husband, Pete Wentz, who looked on as Joe Simpson toasted his daughter's upcoming marriage.

"They were very happy," a friend of the bride-to-be told UsMagazine.com, of Jessica and her fiance. "It was the first time they had seen a lot of their friends since the engagement. She was excited to see her girlfriends."

The couple, who began dating in June, landed in New York this past weekend, as they prep for Simpson's performance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday.
