I didn't want her to do all the work, plus I wanted to share my grandmother's poppy seed rolls with all my friends, so I baked a pan of that and a pan of cinnamon rolls (in case the poppy seed rolls didn't come out well, since I hadn't baked them in years). My friend Julie supplemented the spread with some lovely French pastries. And of course, Anne the most beautiful flowers I think I've ever seen. It was very high class!

The other moment where I totally lost it...when we were getting together after brunch for some pictures with my bridesmaids, Aileen reached out, and first she grabbed my breast, and then she quickly realized her mistake and moved on to Talia (who is slightly better endowed). The picture below is the result! I love the looks on everyone's faces.
One other really fun thing to note: I asked Anne to do something that Talia had at her wedding shower. Everyone brought me a favorite recipe, and Kakuti even brought me the hard-to-find ingredients for her dish (a Persian rice dish that sounds delicious). I'm going to photograph them and add them to a little wedding scrapbook that I plan to put together. Or maybe I'll make each one and post a picture of the finished dish and the recipe here! That sounds like an even better plan!
