In small areas where a full, towering Christmas tree might look overwhelming, Balsam Hill tabletop trees can be a great alternative. A mini Christmas tree lets you keep the spirit of Christmas alive and well, even in limited spaces like studio apartments or office cubicles.
How Tall Should a Tabletop Christmas Tree be?
A tabletop Christmas tree is ideally below 3 feet in height. However, Christmas trees 4 to 5.5 feet tall can also be considered as tabletop trees because they can be placed on top of tables, counters, or wider elevated platforms.

Ideas for the Best Tabletop Christmas Trees
With the many types of miniature trees out there, there’s a variety of options to suit your decorating style. To help narrow down your choices, here are some of the best tabletop Christmas trees from Balsam Hill:
Ornament and Light Showcase
If you love having a Christmas tree specifically to show off your beautiful ornament collection, a small tabletop tree with thin and short needles is perfect for you. It has sparser branches, leaving more room for ornaments and allowing your Christmas decorations to be the center of attention.
A potted evergreen tree, on the other hand, can display both Christmas lights and ornaments since its thick foliage can support the added weight. In addition, evergreens have a traditional Christmas tree silhouette and a lush green color. If you want to take the hassle out of trimming your mini tree, choose pre-decorated tabletop Christmas trees. With just a bit of fluffing and shaping, they’re ready to add cheer to the corners of your home.
Beyond Traditional Christmas Trees
Small Christmas trees in bold colors make a statement in any room and let you decorate to a more dramatic theme. If you’re going for elegance or a touch of whimsy, miniature gold or white Christmas trees are an easy way to liven up any space. Add a charming glow to your display by stringing your tabletop artificial Christmas trees with micro light strings.
Balsam Hill also offers non-traditional tabletop Christmas trees made from different materials such as glass, resin, wood, and metal. These tabletop Christmas decorations are finely crafted to exude elegance with their stunning simplicity, while still adding a festive element.
A topiary is also an excellent choice for a tabletop artificial Christmas tree as it can stand alone even without accessories. Whether spruce, ball, or spiral styles, topiaries make for stylish indoor and outdoor decorations.
Creative and Fragrant
For a more creative tabletop Christmas tree, consider options made of twigs, adorned with cranberries, or decked out in other seasonal materials. These trees are excellent as table décor, providing a bold statement without overtaking other stylistic elements in the room.
In addition to providing a seasonal look, tabletop trees can also help create a festive environment with their scents. Small aromatic trees such as pine, rosemary, bay, and eucalyptus fill rooms with earthy scents that can transport you back to Christmases past and help create new holiday associations. Alternately, you can add your favorite seasonal scent to any type of tree with oils and diffusers.
The best thing about mini Christmas trees is that they bring the magic of Christmas with just a fraction of the space of a full-sized tree. No matter which type of tabletop Christmas tree you decide to go with, it’s sure to help bring a cheerful and festive ambience to any space.
