Terri Vaughn and hubby Karon Joseph Riley is having a baby girl and the happy couple had a pretty in pink baby shower surrounded by close family and friends. The baby shower started off like most showers that consist of good food, baby gifts, and lots of smile; but the party quickly turned into an OLD School R&B DIVA Party with a surprise performance by Angie Stone and a reuniting of Angie’s group The Sequence with Rapper Blondy. We were all shocked to attend a baby shower/concert. It was EPIC!
The pretty in pink baby shower was held at Krave Lounge in Atlanta. The after hour spot was transformed from sultry lounge into a sophisticated locale perfect for a baby shower. The guests walked around admiring the delicious looking desserts and nibbling on food by my pretty friend Mali Hunter. Mali decided to gift the parents to be and the baby shower guests with tasty food cooked in her kitchen and it was YUMMY!
Terri Vaughn looked absolutely gorgeous in her custom-made sundress. She is finally getting her baby girl. They have decided to name the baby Lola Riley and she’s the couple’s third child. They are over the moon with excitement about their little girl that’s coming very very soon.
The decor was amazingly pretty with its elegant yet simple statements that says all girl. I loved the framed photo of the mommy to be for guests to sign to leave a loving message to Lola Riley’s keepsake box. The elegant flowers was a perfect detail for a pretty in pink baby shower.
There was a beautiful pink cake surrounded by cupcakes and cookies shaped as cute onsies, rattles, and other baby necessities. They mommy to be circulated around the room thanking her guests for coming and sharing details about the new baby. There were all laughs and smiles at this intimate baby shower.
The all pink baby girl affair was truly star-studded as the couple’s closest friends came out with gifts that included tons of diapers and baby cards. The evening was not all sugar and spice it turned into a concert thanks to R&B Diva Angie Stone. The guests were excited to see Angie take to the stage as she shared words of wisdom and sung her heart out as Terri and Karon bobbed to the beat. She invited Jacquitta Williams and Trina Braxton to the stage to help her sing and it was so nice.
The icing on the cake was the improntu reunion of Angie Stone (Angie B) and Gwendolyn Chisolm (Blondy) the two performed their HIP HOP classic “Funk You Up” and the crowd went wild. It was really a blast from the past themed party. The highlight of the afternoon was R&B Diva Angie Stone’s surprise performance that turned the baby shower into an old school R&B concert filled with soulful sounds and Hip Hop when The Sequence’s Blondy and Angie B took the crowd back down memory lane with their classic RAP Song.
