Tabletop Christmas Trees

We are Christmas tree fanatics for obvious reasons. We don’t discriminate when it comes to trees, we love jumbo-sized trees, mini trees and everything in between. Real trees are great and smell wonderful and artificial trees are convenient and sustainable. There are some special elves in our offices who have multiple Christmas trees in their homes to support their burgeoning ornament collection. In our eyes, anyone with a Christmas tree can’t go wrong whether they have one small one or five big ones. Most of the time the big trees get all the attention; they’re the famous trees around the world that tourists love to see. But, the underrated, tabletop trees shine for three reasons.

Mini Ornaments

Mini ornaments are so adorable yet tend to get lost or overshadowed on a full-sized Christmas tree. It would take boxes and boxes of mini ornaments to fill up a big Christmas tree, and even then, they would still look out of proportion dangling from big branches. But mini ornaments, dangling from a mini-sized branch, ensure that each ornament gets highlighted and appreciated. Mini ornaments look great on tabletop Christmas trees because they’re the right size. Old World Christmas features many mini ornaments and a few mini ornament sets like the Christmas set, garden set, or the always popular dessert set. These mini ornaments might be small in stature, but big in design. 

Perfect Size

Not only do mini ornaments look perfect on a tabletop tree, but the tabletop tree also looks great on top of the table, sideboard, coffee table, or countertop. A mini tree allows for more Christmas decorations in other parts of the home without taking over an entire room. Tabletop trees can also be real trees (sometimes lopped off the top of a full-size Christmas tree), but many times tabletop Christmas trees are made from brightly colored plastic tinsel which adds a splash of color and sparkle as well as no dropped needles and easy storage. 

Pick A Theme

Tabletop trees are a flexible decoration because they can quickly be changed out and redecorated depending on the event, the guests, and the theme. Decorating a full-size Christmas tree happens once at the beginning of the season with little-to-no adjustments, but the flexibility of the mini tree gives the hostess the chance to change out ornaments, add lights, and a mini garland if needed. A tabletop Christmas tree would be a beautiful excuse to do a themed tree. A tree full of mini birds like the blue and yellow parakeet ornaments would make a beautiful tabletop tree. The theme doesn’t only have to be Christmas. A tabletop tree could also be used at Halloween and Thanksgiving. 

Tabletop Christmas trees are the perfect solution to tight living quarters, but still want a Christmas tree, to display mini ornaments, or to highlight a specific theme. They add color and Christmas cheer to households everywhere.
