Style x Beauty Dept Russian Tea Party

There’s something about crisp fall days that makes you want to cozy up indoors. The rain, while grey and stormy, allows us to be creative with how we entertain while seeking refuge from the clouds.

We set about throwing together some ideas to make a fall table scape. Our initial inspiration was a Russian Tea Party. We loved how ornate and vintage Russian tea parties looked, and wanted to use elements of it in our set up. We armed our décor and food stylist Sonia with tons of images and let her creativity run wild. The results were nothing short of gorgeous. Our photographer, Matthew, chose the best lighting, creating stunning warmth to our table, and making it perfect for fall. Our setting was equally perfect, at Milner’s Downs, in an attic barn, so rustic and woodsy. It lent an air of old time authenticity, making the entire table scape cozy and handsome, very Russian-inspired.

We wanted a consistency of warmth throughout the food we selected for the table scape. We chose to serve a charcuterie plate, being selective in the meats, cheese and accoutrements we chose from Cioffi’s, where the colors were analogous with the rest of our spread. Served on a gorgeous marble– serving dish from Indigo that drew attention to the warm colors of the platter. Our blinis with smoked salmon and crème fraiche topped with chives provided the pop of color to our cozy palette. We sipped on warm apple cider while devouring a delicious black forest cake topped with frothy whipped cream. All homemade of course!

Our Russian-inspired table scape, with the mix of fabric, silver and gold serving dishes, vintage candelabra and overall warm and cozy palette made a grey, dreary, cold fall day all that much better. We hope we’ve inspired you to try something new for a table scape and use your creativity to create gorgeous settings with delicious food and good friends any day of the year!

Vashe Zrodovye! {Cheers to your health}
