Tablescape Tuesday – Russian Christmas Table   26 comments

It’s Tablescape Tuesday time!  This week I would like to share my Russian Christmas table with you.  I am Russian and my parents were born in Russia.  It is a heritage I am very proud of and I am happy to be able to share some of my Russian pieces with you.    These were all gifts brought back from Russia…

Here is how the table ended up incorporating all these wonderful treasures…

The black chargers are actually my gold chargers turned upside down.  I loved that it had the black lacquer look of the Russian painted pieces. 

So come on over for some good Russian soup, we have a chicken noodle type of soup called Lopsha at Christmas – one of my favorites that I am looking forward to this year!

The red plates and stemware are from Sur La Table.  The white soup bowls were made in England and I purchased them at Goodwill!  The tablecloth  and napkins (on the chairs) are also Russian and were brought back from Russia.  

I hope you enjoyed my Russian Christmas Table.  Now head on over to Susan’s at Beyond Naps on the Porch for more Tablescape Tuesday posts!
