We got the private room in Steph's favorite restaurant and got everything setup. Steph's mom made the flower arrangement below, It was super cute with silk flowers, rolled "flower" bibs and socks for Mr. Brambino. Yep, Brambino is the little guy's nickname. We won't find out his real name until he's born. They are keeping tight lipped about it! What we know is that he has the same initials as Ryan and his middle name.
Anyway, back to setting up.... Carla (Ryan's Mom) made the cutest little gift packs for the attendees. Everyone received a travel sized Bath and Body works lotion and a small candle. They were so cute. Since Brambino's room is nautical themed, we went with a nautical theme for the cupcakes, which I had ordered from a local bakery.
It wasn't the most elaborately decorated party, for sure not as decorated as her shower for Kampbell, but that was okay, it was food, fun, friends and gifts, and that's what was most important. Here is the setup of the room.
Once we finished eating and devouring our cupcakes, Steph opened her gifts, and we took pictures to document the event.
Ryan was such a good sport and hung around for the festivities, and he did such a GREAT job scheming to get Stephanie to the party without having a clue what she was walking into. Thanks Ryan!
It was a fun time and I'm so glad we were able to surprise Stephanie and celebrate her and the incoming new edition to their (our) family!!
