Today, many people are gravitating away from full sized live Christmas trees in favour of artificial trees. One of the most popular types of artificial trees is the table top tree. Due to its small size, portability, and the variety of options available when selecting and decorating one, it's no wonder that these tiny trees are gaining ground.


When considering a tabletop tree, your three main choices are pre-lit, fibre optic, or plain. Some trees come with white or coloured lights already arranged and attached, while fibre optic trees use specialised needles to provide a variety of light patterns and colours. Some fibre optic trees can come with up to eight settings to arrange the blinking patterns and colours to your liking. Plain trees, without lights attached, are generally less expensive and allow you the complete freedom to decorate them however you prefer.

Possible Themes

Theme ideas for your tabletop tree are only as limited as your imagination. Many popular themes include family trees, sports trees, or even patriotic trees. Family trees can include ornaments made by family members, photo ornaments of special times in your family's life, or even just ornaments that represent your family members' personalities. Sports trees are often decorated in your favourite team's colours, with ornaments representing that team's logo. Patriotic trees can be in your country's colours and include ornaments with symbols of national pride.


For many, setting up a full sized tree, whether artificial or live, can be a huge hassle. This task becomes even more difficult if you are suffering from an injury or disability. Tabletop trees are small and light and provide an easy way to still decorate and add a festive appearance to your home on Christmas.
