I always look at decorating for the holidays from the point of view of someone who doesn’t live in an home that allows for a full size Christmas tree. So I’ve been collecting inspiring images of tabletop tannenbaums that are perfect for smaller spaces. Martha Stewart (above) is full of ideas for these types of trees but I have found a few more that are just as beautiful. Enjoy!
The second and third are my favorites. It’s funny because when I lived in NYC I felt as if my tree took up so much space in my apartment. Flash forward to this year in a much larger space and the same tree feels dwarfed in my living room. I had to place it on a box just to make it appear somewhat normal.
Ho w timely–I looked at my Christmas tree this morning and promised myself to get a table top next year–so beautiful and the space issue is solved!
Have a great week!
Those are great. The third and fifth are my faves.
If I’m not mistaken, the original Christmas trees (ie the ones popularized in the 19th century by Queen Victoria) were tabletop in size.
I love them too. I have a white feather tree that I just did not have time to put out on the credenza this year, maybe next year!
Of course I’m drooling over Martha’s blue ones, but I adore her red one, and that purple one by Barry Dixon. Great collection!!
That is what I should’ve done this year…instead, no tree at our house:( I am going to keep that in mind for the future. I especially love the Barry Dixon image!
Next year, some thing small but big on chic.
I love all these trees. I love the urn idea as a base. I never would have thought of that. Will have to file it away in my “to remember for holidays” file. Hope you are having a great holiday.

Love the purple in the Barry Dixon photo. What I would give for that wallpaper…sigh.
i think table top trees are adorable. it never has made sense to me to cram a bog ol’ tree into a tiny space anyhoo. of course, i started young with the table tops- my mom used to buy me a little tree for my room, probably because i was so bossy about what ornaments should be used on the big tree in the living room…
Lovely…this one is a keeper!
Wishing you a warm and joyous Christmas
These area ALL beautiful and make me smile with the thought of seeing my Mom’s table top tree that she puts in a garden pot on top of a large skirted table. Thanks for showing how amazing and festive these little things can be. Happy Holidays. xo
Have always loved the tabletop trees. They are perfect for other rooms in addition to the large one also. As Usher said in a Macy;s add, “when do you sleep Martha?”
This a a wonderful post, Heather. I hope that you have a Merry Christmas!
I interned with Barry Dixon last Christmas and we spent almost a week helping with the trees. We enjoyed doing this purple room. A truly memorable experience!!
I love the purple tree. These pictures are so lovely.
SO gorgeous!!! Wow… I love them all… 🙂
