Inspiring Tabletop Christmas Trees





BHG does it again.... I {HEART} this article.

Glass candlesticks upholding glass plates surrounded by boxwood leaves and topped with a mercury glass bird.  I love graceful, NATURAL looking Christmas decor.  

How about gifting a neighbor this cinnamon stick topiary early on in December to enjoy?  Just glue cinnamon sticks atop a box with a dowel in one end... secure with ribbon and mount in vase.



I have 14" pine cones sitting on my hutch waiting to be made into trees.  More about my lucky pine cone score in an upcoming post. 



The wonders of chicken wire.  Really.  This is wonderful.  Chicken wire Christmas trees adorned with roses on a base of delicious red apples.  If you're planning a boutique brunch or a cookie exchange these pretty table top trees are very unique.



Simple Statement.  Paper.



Peppercorn Topiaries.



Finally.  A tree where tinsel garland looks good.  This would be a nice touch in a bathroom or next to a guests bed.


Thinking about Christmas yet?  I've been living it this week.  Head on over HERE to see what I've been up to!

I'd like to do a couple of tabletop {and a countertop} tree myself this year. These are all great ideas.

Such simple but lovely ideas. Was this in a recent issue? I'm starting to gather thoughts for my Christmas show. There are some good ones here. Thanks!

Ahh..Christmas... I love that time of year, but I love the month before it the most! The decorations, gift getting, baking.. All of it! Thanks for the ideas, I am saving this to my "holiday inspiration" file! :)

Hello Pretty Organizer,

I love the natural look too. Very simple and pretty!

I will definitly be making those paper trees too! I am always looking for "paper crafts."

Great ideas, once again :)

I love the tabletop ideas! And they don't look that difficult or expensive.
