Tehran Iran meets Riverton Wyoming at Tapestry House Fort Collins under a Super Moon and for the Persian New Year!
Sharon from Best Day Floral Design her usual awesome job with the arrangement.
Kari’s dad made this cute directional sign to commemorate the coming together of guests from all over the world.
Kari was having a BFF day with her Mom – they laughed and smiled at each other many times throughout the afternoon.
Behind The Scenes Catering is in the house.
There were lots of fun Persian touches throughout the day. In raghesh chagoo (knife dance), the cake knife is ‘stolen’ and wedding guests pass it around, each showing off their dancing skills. The bride & groom finally have to pay a ‘randsom’ to retrieve the knife and get on with the cake cutting.
Haft sin table for Nowruz (Persian New Year) – Eggs are for fertility (a hint from Mom & Dad no doubt), candles are for enlightenment & happiness, coins are for wealth, fish symbolize life within life and are the sign of Pisces (which the sun is leaving now). In the middle is Aajeel … not sure what these symbolize … I asked what they taste like … “sponge” was Nima’s response 😉
Lots of fun late into the night! Thanks for Tapestry House for hosting this special International gathering!
