Take inspiration from topiary

If you want to add a bit of table top drama with Christmas trees, an urn planter is your best bet. You could use a fuller or a thin tree on an urn planter and both will look beautiful. Tried and tested. Need a lot of drama? Go big on the scale. Need a tiny piece of drama? Switch it all down. Small urn planter + small tree!

Swap the urn planter with a vintage zinc or aluminum pitcher. Add your heirloom ornaments and a handmade tassel for an instant shot of whimsy. Alternatively, take the tassel away and add more handcrafted, interesting ornaments! See below

You don’t have to do it large to get those big holiday feels! Quaint, cozy corners with little trees and a cup of coffee is just as adorable as a store full of baubles. Fill a tray with Christmas classic, add a small tree in an enamelware planter. Keep a candle handy!

Color coded

Create simple and yet graceful arrangement that could just about work anywhere and you don’t even have to have a Christmas tree for that. A few branches of evergreen or fern in a red and white pitcher mimics all the coziness of a table top Christmas tree: the trick is to think what colors signify Christmas and then use them right.

Go big with baskets

Table top Christmas trees? More like table top holiday statement! Fill a basket with evergreen and simply add it to your table top. You can also add battery operated twinkly lights in warm tone. Voila! Done. The only things to make sure here are- A. Get a good basket. Ours is handmade in Helsinki by African women, though you can very well find one here in India. B. Make sure your greens are good! A cheap tree might not cut it here.
