Four fes­tive ways to dec­o­rate a table­top tree in­spired by the March sis­ters’ tastes

Just like its muse, this mini bal­sam fir (bal­samhill.com) em­braces tra­di­tional el­e­ments like a plaid bow, cran­berry gar­land, and tar­tan or­na­ments, plus homey ac­cents like clip-on can­dle­sticks (shopter­rain.com). A stoneware crock serves as a clas­sic base.

A sparse alpine bal­sam fir (bal­samhill.com) chan­nels Jo’s less-is-more lean­ings, while an an­tique cop­per pot an­chors the dis­play with metal­lic heft. Bird and pine cone or­na­ments (are­o­home.com) and a dried-or­ange gar­land hit an or­ganic note.

A flocked spruce (bal­lard­de­signs.com) and rib­bon-candy or­na­ments (ohnuts.com) hit a nos­tal­gic note. The happy-hued hand­made but­ton gar­land and vin­tage candy-tin base add sim­ple home­spun charm.

An all-white spruce (over­stock.com) serves as an eye-catch­ing foun­da­tion for sparkling snowflakes, pas­tel baubles, putz house ac­cents (christ­mastra­di­tions.com), and a sweet ice-skate top­per (cre­ative­coop.com). A hat­box evokes a bit of jet-set glam­our.
