This Sauder furniture post is sponsored by TapInfluence. All words and opinions are my own.

A few months ago my Gram passed away.  I haven’t really mentioned it much – if at all – but those who are regular readers probably noticed that there were a few long stretches of little to no posting.

Christmas was always a huge holiday at my grandparents’ house, and I can vividly remember just how she had it decorated every year.  After she passed, a few of those pieces came to me.  I don’t have quite the same setup she did and so I’ve been trying to figure out where to display them.

Assembling our Sauder furniture dresser

If you remember a couple of months ago I shared with you that I had ordered a dresser from Sauder.  Up until just recently we’ve been using it for it’s intended purpose – clothes – plus setting the bedroom TV on top of it.  But we did some remodeling in there and moved the dresser to a different wall and the TV came off.  That left me with a large, empty area – and I knew just what to put there.

I’m still not 100% sure just what I want to do with the space.  Not everything is specific to Christmas; there are a few non-holiday serving pieces also.  Mix-and-match is still kind of “in” so I started by arranging them all together across the dresser.

Displaying Christmas Collections with Sauder Furniture

While I thought it looked okay, I also wanted to see what it would look like with just the Christmas pieces.  So I cleared it off and started over. I did one grouping – a vase, cup and saucer, creamer, bell, etc. – that were all the same pattern.  And then I did a second small grouping with a little light-up Christmas igloo that my Gram had made paired with a photo of my grandparents from a few years ago.

I think the dresser would also look nice against the living room wall leading into the hall, where we could use it like a sideboard.  Store things like seasonal blankets and extra pillows in the drawers, and top it with a few framed photos.  With as versatile as Sauder furniture is, you’ll be able to style a single piece in a number of different ways.
