I was originally on the fence about having a cookie table at our wedding, but then my best friend sent FI a New York Times article about the Italian cookie table tradition, focusing on Pittsburgh. After reading it, he comes running to where I am and says "I so want a cookie table". So now I'm starting the idea process as I'm going home over the long weekend for my great grandma's 95th birthday. I want to ask my family to bake some of my favorite cookies that they make, but I have no idea how many I'm going to need. The guest list is currently at 128, but I'm hoping to have it cut down to around 100 by the time the save the dates go out in a couple months. How many cookies should I have for that many people? And FI loves the idea of putting out chinese take out boxes for people to take some home at the end of the night too!
