Baby Bugliari’s Baby Shower

Baby Bugliari’s Baby Shower

Matt Kemp hit a homer and Clayton Kershaw threw eight dominant innings as the LA Dodgers cruised to a 6-1 victory over the visiting Houston Astros on Saturday, August 13, 2011.  The stadium roared for their Dodgers success but, inside a private suite with a perfect view of the victorious game, Alyssa Milano’s guests laughed and cheered in celebration of Baby Bugliari.  The co-ed gathering of David and Alyssa’s closest friends and family included a stadium-catered lunch (Dodger Dogs included!), an arts and crafts table and tons of customized kitsch to welcome the couple’s first-born son.

Hosted by Alyssa’s mother Lin and best friend Alaa, the luxury stadium suite was decorated in all things baby.  A giant Dodger-blue ribbon on the suite’s door invited guests into a room full of grandiose balloon bouquets by Balloon Celebrations and exquisite floral arrangements by Empty Vase. The decoration’s centerpiece was a tall-standing glass vase full of underwater orchids and baseballs that whimsically plumed into a display of roses and, of course, more baseballs. Shower-goers arrived in their best game attire and proudly wore “Baby Bugliari” medals while sipping champagne, crafting, and catching up with the glowing mother-to-be.  Alyssa looked beautiful in a Dodger-blue maxi dress, happily showing off her baby bump and welcoming her company as a gracious hostess.  Friends and family gathered around her to share stories and decorate “labor beads” with words of encouragement for the mother (and sometimes the father!) in the delivery room.  Each handcrafted bead was then strung together like a rosary of love from those excited to meet her baby boy.

Guests, themselves, were showered with goodies including Dodgers-decorated cupcakes by Crumbs, custom-wrapped chocolate bars by Tillman Sweets, gold-plated vintage baseball charms, and beautiful blue candles engraved with the baby’s initials by Carved Solutions. In return for the soon-to-be-born baby’s hospitality, guests had the opportunity to scrapbook well wishes, first hellos and thank you’s into what will be Baby Bugliari’s first official book. In fact, shower invitations were sent with a request for guests to forgo traditional gifts, and to bring their favorite childhood book instead. The result was a collection of both hilarious and heart-warming shared memories among friends.

As the Dodgers win became apparent, and in a moment of appreciation for the afternoon, Alyssa’s visiting cousin turned to the baby’s grandfather, Mr. Milano, and said, “Now all we need is a foul ball hit into our suite.”  And then…moments later…a ball came soaring into the suits and was caught by a neighboring fan.  Looks like Baby Bugliari is good luck for the team, we can’t wait to meet him!

    beautiful pictures

  29. I know you are so close to having the same due date as I did, September 9th, only my “baby” will be five on September 12th! The day of my shower I had my “bloody show”! I was wondering if I would make it through my shower. Tyler was born four weeks later so don’t worry too much if you get it early. I remind myself of my mother, and now I get it. Can’t help remembering where I was five years ago: I had just gone off work because I had GD and I had to go to the doctor three times a week, work just wasn’t making sense any more. I was supposed to be induced on the 5th anniv. of September 11th and that day I was still running around doing nursery stuff! I got stopped by a policeman on September 11th and I said, “Would you please give me a break, I am pregnant and I am going to have the baby today.” He did not believe me so I had to “Step out of the car”! He let me go, he could not believe I was running around like this on the day I was supposed to be giving birth.

    Alyssa, you are looking so beautiful and happy. I am very sick and poor now, I became sicker after having my son, but I wouldn’t trade him for one more day of life! So I wish you and your baby boy health and safety through these last few weeks.

    Try not to worry too much, even though I know it is hard. Just be prepared to take the biggest “dump” of your life, take all the drugs they offer you, and you will be fine! It really does not feel like period cramps like everyone tells you, it really feels like you have been constipated for forty weeks and it is finally coming out!

    I love you!

  30. Cangrats you guys! I think it is a awesome idea that you had your baby shower there. Very unique! You are positivly glowing! Cant wait to see the pictures of the little cutie after he is born. :)

  31. All your fans already know what a wonderful mother you are going to be. I wish you and your husband all the joy in the world with your new little one. May blessings from God always be with you and your family.

    Love from Florida..

  32. Thank you for letting me and your millions of other fans feel apart of your pregnancy with “Baby Boogs” (via JBreezy220). I think it is amazing how willing you are to share these very personal experiences with your fans and followers on Twitter(mapleleafs_75), Facebook & Google +. You are allowing all of us to feel a part of his life, even before we meet him. (I love when you say ‘You can’t wait to meet him.’ I have just never heard any expectant mother use that expression before when talking about their baby being born. It is just such a reminder that even though you have this boy growing inside you, you’ve been building a maternal bond with him, and you love him with all your heart & soul, you still have yet to actually “Meet” him. )

    What is also great is the way you include us. Since you are a famous celebrity, I understand that you get to experience certain privileges that I (and most of your fans) never well. However, in your description of the Shower, you never come across as jaded or entitled. The way you recall each detail is genuine excitement. This pure enthusiasm is why you have the millions of admirers you do. You aren’t some celeb who just expected to have a shower at Dodger Stadium, with all this great food and decorations. You are a regular person who was excited and overjoyed that your family and friends would throw you & David such a great party.

    Any chance you can add captions to the pics? It would be great to know your thoughts on them.

    P.S. Was David able to top the organic garden for your 2nd anniversary?

  33. wow your bumb is looking very big but you can carry it of so well what i mean is you look as pretty as ever even with a baby bump :) love you so much you have been a big inspiration to me and hope you both have years of happiness with your little boy xoxoxo

  34. Looks like lots of fun and good times and good gifts, congrats to the ever gorgeous you and hubby

  35. You look so beautiful and happy! Congratulations!! I wish you and David great joy and happiness! ♥

  36. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures with us, Alyssa. You are a vision of expectant beauty! Baby Bugliari is super lucky to get you for a mommy!!!

    Cordialement .

  80. Congratulations on your baby ! How awesome! It will change your life greatly and for the best!

  81. While growing up i was often compared to being an Alyssa look alike. As an adult I was even asked for your autograph in Chicago. Seeing you pregnant, my mother even says we looked alike. Now I am a mom of 4, and you had your first, and like me, it’s a boy. As I say to all new moms, cherish every moment, even the tough ones, for they grow up so very fast. Make as many memories as possible with baby Milo, Take pictures as often as you can, do keep a baby book, for future questions by Milo. ( and he will have questions) Surround him with love every moment of everyday. Read to him constantly, I did this with all my children, and they could read at the age of 3.I wish you and your family the very best, and I pray that your lives are always blessed with health, love and happiness always! Congrats to you and your husband!

  82. congratulation both of u Alyssia for the new baby born! :)

  83. Alyssa u beautiful mamma and good actress! ;)

  84. Congratulations Dave and Alyssa you are very lucky and blessed God bless all 3 of u.you are a very kind hearted woman you’ll be wonderful parents.

  96. A baby boy is so unique
    So tiny, sweet and ever meek.
    It’s fun to imagine what he thinks
    Between those coos and little blinks.

    Though now he’s just a babe, you’ll find
    That busy is his little mind.
    Learning, watching, listening
    To every single little thing.

    As you look into his eyes
    You see such wonder and surprise
    He’s just so sweet, and when he smiles
    Your heart just soars for miles and miles.

    All the the very best wishes to Mummy,Daddy and baby Milo.x

  97. I have never seen you so luminescent. I wish you and your baby boy the best. You look truly happy.
