Proshu k stolu! Please, to the table!

The samovar is bubbling merrily away, the pickled fruits and vegetables are in their jars, and the bublichki (those are the bagel-like things in the background) are handy. Do sit and chat, dear. You fancy my shawl… thank you; it is one of our traditional Russian patterns. Would you care for some jam? No problem… it’s just over here on the shelf…
