Tablescape Thursday ~ Easter Brunch

My tablescape this week is from my home in Washington State. We had brunch with our children after church on Easter Sunday.

Our traditional Russian Easter Bread ~ Kulich. My sister Lana G! and I baked this by ourselves for the first time this year.

We also made the traditional sweet cheese topping for the bread called Seerney Paska in Russian. The X is the first letter in Russian for Christ and the B is pronounced V in Russian and it stands for Arose. Christ Arose…

Our little bunnies are holding the signs for the reason we celebrate Easter. Again this is written in Russian Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!


Here are our children after our yummy brunch of Swedish Pancakes which Dear made for all of us. We had to get the Swedish heritage in there, too.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. I just love it! I love how the table is so soft and welcoming. I really like the striped tablecloth. And I love the napkins, too. That cake is gorgous. What a darling family that is! I’m so glad you had a wonderful holiday! Blessings, Barb

  2. Colors are so soft. I love the fact that you and your sister baked. I made an Italian Easter bread this year that I posted on my blog but your recipe looks intriguing.

  3. Ooh! I’d be happy to know the name of the china with the pink roses circling the edge and you two did a great job with the Kulich…now, if only I could taste it :D!

    First of all your kitchen is so open and lovely. The table is incredibly “springy” and the colors are so cheerful and bright for the season. Love the addition of the Russian food as an accent to the table. Just heavenly! Amy 🙂
