The Christmas tree is the epitome of holiday decor. So many memories are created, from finding the perfect tree to decorating it with friends and family.

Finding the perfect tree for your apartment can be difficult - there's a high chance that a 12-foot tall tree will not fit in your living room.

However, that doesn't mean you can't have a gorgeous, impactful tree that will give you all the holiday cheer you're looking for!

This post shows you apartment Christmas tree ideas.



Pop up Christmas trees are amazing because they are so easy to set up and can give all the festive feel you would get from a real tree.

Not only will a pop-up tree save you money but it never dies! From small to gigantic, white to green, there are endless options when it comes to choosing a pop-up tree.

First, figure out what size tree will fit your space the best - small, tall, and skinny or large and voluminous.

After you've figured out the size it's time to determine what "vibe" you're going for - natural and green, snow colored, or white.

From there you can spend your time choosing which ornaments to use. Although I really do love the whole process of choosing a tree, picking ornaments might be the best part.

1. Subtle Pink and Gold Hue

Tabletop Christmas trees are adorable and the perfect way to add a little festive cheer to each room.

I love adding a small Christmas tree to my entryway table. I, personally, like to choose a small tree that's subtle and looks like it's apart of the room decor instead of stealing all the spotlight, I save that for my main tree.

From my experience, I've found that a lot of tabletop Christmas trees come with the stump wrapped in not-so-pretty burlap or cheap-looking gold fabric.

My advice: go out and find yourself a pretty wicker basket or even a brown paper bag would look cute (there are photos below you can use as inspiration) and hide whatever your tabletop tree came in!

15. Subtle

Subtle hints of Christmas can be just as important as the big tree!  If you are looking for front entry way decorations, a small tree would be perfect for you.

22. Eloquent and Rustic

Recreate this Christmas tree:

Finding decorations with character are so important.

Christmas is all about the memories, and you want to make sure that your decorations tell a story.

23. Customizable

Recreate this Christmas tree:

Instead of ornaments, this Christmas tree has tags on them. I think this is a wonderful idea if you are looking for a way to customize your tree.

Every so often throughout the holiday, you could write down things or people you are grateful for and hang them on the tree!


Small Christmas trees are perfect for an apartment; whether they're it's just a small addition to your bedroom or the main tree in your living room they always look amazing.
