Now the calendar winter is drawing to a close, and soon we’ll enjoy one holiday after another. Jolly Maslenitsa (Pancake week), Defender of the Fatherland Day and Women’s Day (8th of March) – there are many reasons to gather with your family members and dear ones for a holiday dinner. By the way, our Geoboutique in Novaya ploshad can help you with ideas for the original table layout.

No dinner can go without tea-drinking. Surprise your guests with a birchbark tea set: a globe-shaped samovar, nice cups and a tea tray. Birchbark is unique natural material with bactericidal characteristics, and it keeps the drink hot for a long time.

When it comes to choosing dinnerware, it is not easy to guess the taste of your guests -   some are fond of tiny teabowls, others prefer jumbo cups. The last will catch fancy of birchbark glasses and mugs made in the best traditions of the Shadrino arts and crafts. You can find cups with images of wild animals on them in the shop of the Russian Geographical Society. And sweet lovers will appreciate chocolates in glossy “geographical” packs.

 

Geoboutique of the Russian Geographical Society is open from 10:00 to 19:00 daily  

Geoboutique is located in Moscow, Novaya ploshad, house 10, building 2.
