Not to worry mate. Just roll the car over, bleed the brakes and then roll it back over. Problem solved. Or I guess you could swap the calipers so the bleeder is up.
Everybody on here has made the same type of boo boo at some time.

I'd suggest a one man brake bleeding system like the one below. It's an investment but this is what I used. Never bled a brake before but it only took about 25 minutes to get all the air out.
The system pushes the fluid from each brake up to the MC. The system makes sense as air naturally likes to go up so you are working with gravity instead of against it (trying to push air downwards) the way old fashioned way. You can also do it by yourself. No more need for a brake bleeding partner.
Make sure you do not have your calipers on the wrong side of the car. Sometimes they will still fit but the bleeder screw would be on the bottom trapping air on the top of the caliper. The bleeder screws need to be on the top of the caliper.
