Next week is already going to be Easter! What we look forward to during the holidays is gathering around a dining table with all of our friends and family. Being surrounded with all of that love is what makes the holidays worth celebrating. Having a beautifully set dining table makes these times all the more better. To help you set a dining table that will add to your loved one's memories, we’ve put together a Union Wood Co. inspired source guide for setting your dining table with products handcrafted right here in Vancouver (or available at some of our favourite local shops).
Plating a meal you’ve put your heart into making on a plate that was made with the same care and quality will only add to the feeling of connection around your dining table.
Local Vancouver ceramicist, Janaki Larsen, has a beautiful collection of organically shaped plates available at 7e7 on Mt. Pleasant.
Linens made from natural fibers or soft cotton set the tone for a dinner party where everyone can sit back and fully enjoy themselves without worry about what proper fork to eat their meal with.
Nineteen Ten on Main Street always has a great selection of linens and other tabletop accessories.
Wood Serving Board
Nothing pleases a crowd like a beautifully crafted wood serving board loaded up with fresh local cheeses, fruit, and specialty meats! Invest in a few trays and use them to serve the main course on.
Our Wood Serving Boards and Wood Cheese Boards are in-stock and awaiting an invitation to dinner.
Let your floral arrangements be wild and free with a variety of leafy greens and pops of spring bloom colours.
The Bloom Room Botanical Gallery on Kingsway does a gorgeous job of putting together arrangements that captures the carefree spirit of the West Coast.
We love the idea of our cutlery and serving utensils being hand forged by the hammer of a metalsmith. A hammered texture gives metal the character impression of longevity and craftsmanship.

Quality Dining Table
Having everything you need to set a beautiful table will be for nothing if you don't have the right table for everyone to gather around. Our A-Frame Table is built in our East Vancouver workshop by our crew of skilled woodworkers. Visit the Union Wood Co. website to see all of the finishes it's available in and to shop all of our other dining table options.
However you choice to enjoy the coming Easter long weekend, the whole Union Wood Co. crew wishes you a good meal and drinks with your loved ones!
