The McLaughlin Group and Reuters News Correspondents’ Brunch Completes a Weekend of Celebration

The tradition goes on for The McLaughlin Group Correspondents’ Brunch the morning after the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. On Sunday, May 1, John McLaughlin, creator, executive producer and host of The McLaughlin Group, along with Stephen Adler, editor in chief of Reuters News, hosted the brunch that for McLaughlin has been a ritual for 20-plus years.

Typically held at the Hay Adams Rooftop, with a recent exception in 2009, the event was again at the famed hotel, but in newly renovated rooftop spaces. Once tented and open to the elements, the L-shaped reception hall is now lavishly adorned with classic finishes and glass doors at every turn opening to the balcony offering bird’s-eye views of the White House and Washington Monument. Sources say the first event in the newly renovated spaces was in January of this year.

Celebrating The Royals!

Celebrating The Royals!

Tiaras, Cupcakes, Champagne & Jewelry 

No British weather for this party. The sun shone as more than 40 princesses flocked to the Old Town Alexandria jewelry boutique Mystique last Thursday evening for Mystique's first-ever Princess Party and to toast Will and Kate on the eve of their nuptials. The tiaraed guests sipped champagne and tried on rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings adorned with diamonds, sapphires, and more, all befitting royalty.

Mystique owner Elizabeth Mandros, who is celebrating 20 years in business this year (and her birthday as well), was the belle of the ball. "We had such fun," Elizabeth exclaimed, "It was a perfect night." And her guests agreed. Iris Perry, of Montgomery Village, Maryland, "felt like a princess."
