What was thought to be just an intimate birthday dinner with family turned out to be a night to remember for MarketAmerica.com founder, Loren Ridinger on Saturday, November 21st.
Daughter, Amber Ridinger, and Haute Living were delighted to host a birthday surprise for the Haute Ambassador and all-around superwoman in the private dining area of Cipriani, Miami’s ritzy nautical-style Italian bistro. Guests arrived and were quickly ushered to the private dining room where they awaited the arrival of the woman of the hour. Once Loren arrived, she was welcomed by a beautiful balloon-filled room of her closest family and friends. Loren’s BFFs Eva Longoria and Larsa Pippen were among notable attendees and they stuck by the birthday girl’s side throughout her celebration.
As guests took their seats for dinner, a video put together by husband JR Ridinger and daughter Amber Ridinger played on the screens and set the tone for the haute evening that was soon to unfold. Kris Jenner, Serena Williams, Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys all made appearances on the screen with warm wishes and words of love to send the internet mogul on her special day.
As the video came to an end and guests polished off their plates, Jamie Foxx took to the mic to sing a special rendition of “Happy Birthday” and got the party started. Guests sipped Diageo cocktails and Domaine Bertaud Bellieu rosé as they made their way to the dance floor. Figaro cigars was also in attendance with a cigar rolling station for guests to enjoy – always an ultra-luxe hands-on experience.
The energy that filled the room was beyond compare. An impromptu performance by Fat Joe brought everyone in the room to their feet and even brought birthday girl, Loren, to the mic as they sang Fat Joe’s “Stressin’” and assured everyone in the room that they were not. Adrienne Bosh, Mary Floyd, Alexis Welch and Amar’e Stoudemire sang along with the duo and the star-studded crowd. The night was definitely not one to miss – Haute Living and Amber Ridinger were thrilled with the turnout of the surprise birthday bash for such an influential woman as Loren Ridinger.
