    Taylor Swift Throws Do-Good 20th Birthday Bash

    Aww, little Taylor Swift is growing up so fast!

    The teen singing sensation turned 20 yesterday, meaning she can offically kiss the teenage title good-bye.

    She celebrated with a big Christmas-themed birthday bash on Sunday, but not at some fancy club or bar. The party was at her Tennessee home!

    The birthday girl spent the night before baking and cooking up a storm for her guests. "She and her mom did almost all of the food for the party," a source tells E! News.

    Except for the birthday cake, that is. She got a vanilla cake from Crumbs, as well as mini-cupcakes.

    "There were more than 50 people," says the insider. "It was fun!"

    And not only does Tay-Tay get points for being so down-to-earth and such a darn cute cook, but she gave someone else a gift on her big day...

    She's donated $250,000 to schools around the country that she's attended or worked with, which will go toward teachers' salaries, buying books and educational programs.

    "Something I wanted to do at the end of this amazing year and especially on my birthday was give back to something I really believe in, which is education," says Swift. "The schools that I went to and the amazing people I got to learn from really turned me into who I am, and I wanted to give back."

    And we thought we couldn't like her any more than we already did!

    Our source stayed mum on whether similarly named boyfriend Taylor Lautner was able to make the party.

    We do know that he defended her honor while hosting Saturday Night Live the day before, so perhaps he hopped on a flight after the show to make her Sunday night soiree?
