In Chinese tradition, a baby banquet is held when the baby reaches one month old. This celebration is also known as "red egg and ginger" baby banquet. Our family had made reservations at the restaurant for 8 tables (so approximately 80 people). Being the first baby and because we had a boy, it was somewhat a big deal for the Yuen family. Our baby Brandon was the main attraction. He was sound asleep with his favorite blue blanket around him. Everyone gathered to wish congratulations and offering gifts & red envelopes.
