Sweet 16 celebration, for a sweet girl and a sweet charity

R&B star Ginuwine and his wife Tonya Lumpkin, previously known as rapper Sole, hosted their daughter Cypress Lee’s Sweet 16 at DC hotspot Eden to benefit the Somaly Mam Foundation – a charity that aims to end modern-day human trafficking. This was not your ordinary spoiled-child Sweet-16… the celebration raised over $2,000 for the charity, as Cypress’ guests were asked to donate money at the door in lieu of gifts. Before making her birthday wish and blowing out the candles, Cypress enjoyed the smooth singing of Father Ginuwine for a very special a cappella ‘Happy Birthday song.’ Notable guests at the bash included Paul Wharton of Bravo’s Real Housewives of DC, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Ayman Hakki, and 14-year-old sensation DJ Young Music. Scrumtious hors d’oeuvres were provided from Cafe Asia and cupcakes from Frosting: A Cupcakery.

Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments captured by REVAMP.com’s Daniel Swartz and Rita Lawrence with Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company Von Der Pool Gourmet.  I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and  mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.
