Reclaimed Beauty of Wood Housewares

reclaimed wood tableware and vases :: chip and dip :: slab wood bread cutting boards

I spot these amazing wood vases at T.J. Maxx. The lighter wood vases in the middle are my favorite pieces. Unfortunately, you will need to go to a store near you to know about these vases Then, I head to Viva Terra to check what rustic pieces I can find.

Wood Serving Ware

Viva Terra carries the beautiful food-safe smoky brown bowls. Also from the Root of the Earth collection, a 4-section Server bowl complete the chip and dip server. Both servers are different enough to not look like a kit.

Although I like the convenience of porcelain serving ware; these one of a kind wood servers are hard to beat. They are make by transforming reclaimed wood from discarded Chinese fir burls into one-of-a-kind tableware pieces.

Bread and Cutting Boards

Every buffet table needs a couple bread and antipasto cutting boards. Viva Terra got a practical mango wood set. Boards in three lengths and widths are a must to fit different types of breads. The rounded edges and the thickness of these make a statement.
