Tabletop Christmas Tree
I love living in our small 100 year old farmhouse. It’s small, cozy, full of character, and completely different from how most homes are built today. As much as I love it, one of the biggest challenges I’ve found with holiday decorating is how there’s not a lot of room for a Christmas tree. Since our living room is about 200 square feet, there’s only a small corner for a tree (less than 3′ wide) with 9′ ceilings. Most Christmas trees are really wide at the bottom and get skinnier at the top and are too big for our space. The best solution I could come up with was a tabletop Christmas tree.
Original Christmas Trees
Some of the first Christmas trees were actually tabletop trees, so this isn’t a completely new idea, but it’s not done as much today. The Christmas tree I found is 6’5″ tall and 32″ wide with lightly frosted branches (my favorite). Andy built the tree stand for me, and I designed a simple tailored pleated Christmas tree skirt in cream linen that I had custom made. Every home is unique in what works and doesn’t work. This cute little tabletop Christmas tree works well in our home. The tree stand makes it taller than it actually is, so when we sit by the tree at night with the lights on, it’s the perfect height. Have any of you had similar tree experiences? If so, I’d love to hear about them!
