Not every Christmas tree has to be big enough to put gifts under. Some trees may be quite diminutive, but can still be quite charming. Like the European-style mini Christmas tree or the mini Alberta spruce that can be used to decorate windowsills and outdoor pots. These portable trees can help decorate all your holiday gatherings. Bring them indoors for a great decorative touch (they even make unique centerpieces), but between events be sure to return them outside. For an extra festive touch, adorn the trees with holiday lights (some of the mini Christmas trees available at your local Home & Garden Showplace actually come pre-decorated with lights and ornaments). These trees are an easy way to bring a woodsy feel close to home.
