When I ordered my hutch from Sauder last summer I didn’t realize how much fun I’d have decorating it for the holidays. I never had the chance to share my Halloween decor, but I’ll be sure to share my Christmas decor over the next few weeks. Today I want to share a quick and easy Thanksgiving Dessert Display using my hutch.
I’ll have a more detailed post on quick and easy Thanksgiving treats for kids, but I wanted to show you a quick preview. My kids love making the Oreo Turkeys every year. Another easy treat are cookie pilgrim hats made with Reese’s and icing (tutorials to follow soon). The hutch is great for displaying cake stands, which is perfect for serving pies at Thanksgiving time.
A concern I had when I first put the shelves together was that the small pegs wouldn’t be sturdy enough. I couldn’t have been more wrong! It’s actually one of the things I like the most about the hutch. The ability to adjust the shelves has proven to be exactly what I needed. This allows me to switch the heights to accommodate the decor. I recently used it for a party and needed to move the shelf at least 3 inches higher for a candy jar display. At that moment I couldn’t have been happier that they’re weren’t permanently in place.The hutch also comes with a drawer, 3 shelves and two doors on the bottom that host another shelf. I use this area to store decor that is switched out over the seasons.
The hutch is styled in my living among dark furniture. The off-white/cream color really helps balance out the room and tone down the dark colors. I’ve considered painting it but I can’t commit to doing that just yet. I think I’ll enjoy the light color for another year or so before painting it according to my ever changing style.
My ideal Thanksgiving decor is a combination of natural accents like wood, pine cones, and wheat. I’m also adding chalkboard accents. What are some of your favorite ways to style a hutch? Do you use it to display food for the Holidays?
