Tabletop, potted, or simply under 5 feet tall, smaller trees are great for spreading holiday cheer around your home. Their relatively compact size makes them versatile enough to be placed almost anywhere, but not too small that they’re overshadowed by other décor.
Make the most of a small tree’s real estate and have it looking its best with these ideas for decorating tabletop trees from Treetopia!
When going for a minimalist look, our Winter White Tabletop Trees and potted Christmas trees are a great place to start. Use them to create a simple winter tablescape to complement your holiday decor or take the simple route by omitting ornaments and simply stringing clear lights on the trees. Play it up a bit and place standard-size ornaments on the table as part of the tablescape, keeping the trees bare so their natural beauty can shine. If you’re looking for more color, our Little Divas Mini Christmas Trees are the way to go.
Here are some more tips:
- Pepper trees with cotton balls for winter and hang paper snowflake cutouts on its branches
- Choose a color theme that complements your overall décor
Choose a main color theme for the tree or intersperse metallic ornaments in different colors and textures for variety, and place small gifts wrapped in shiny paper at the bottom to complete the look. The neutral hues of our I Love Gold Metallic Tabletop Trees are great if you want to use colorful ornaments.
For maximum effect, consider the following tips:
- Use an ornate planter or urn as a base, but stick to neutral hues so it doesn’t overpower the tree
- Place your potted tree on a reflective surface to emphasize its decorations
Go for a theme that reflects your personal style, like Jen did with her 4-foot Treetopia Basics Yellow Tree. You can use most anything as ornaments, such as small toys, vintage finds, and family heirlooms.
Here are a few items you can use to get you started:
- Small keepsakes gathered throughout the years
- Ornaments made by you or your loved ones
- Small picture frames filled with photos of friends and family
There are several ways you can decorate potted and tabletop trees and this list is, by no means, a comprehensive one. Depending on your personal style, you can choose a monochromatic, multicolor, or minimalist look, or go crazy and break the rules to create a truly one-of-a-kind display.
