I’ve always wanted a fresh Silver Tip Christmas tree because they have the most stunning, spaced out branches that are perfect for displaying ornaments. The fact that they grow high in the mountains of Oregon and California means they are difficult to come by for this east coast girl. So for the past few years, I’ve been decorating with sparse Christmas trees because I love their imperfect shapes which makes them look much more natural in my humble opinion. I’m sharing 15 sparse Christmas trees that are beautifully decorated.
I’m also sharing some of my favorite sparse Christmas trees at the end of this post including full size and table top trees, flocked and plain trees, green and tinsel trees.
Here is a stunning Silver Tip tree in all it’s natural glory!
Tone on Tone shows us that less is way more when he planted this live little tree in an antique urn and decorated it with mercury glass ornaments.
Clip on candles and string lights create a warm glow in Dear Lillie’s bedroom.
Far Above Rubies gets her trees from the woods surrounding her home and this Hemlock is the prettiest Charlie Brown tree I’ve ever seen decked out in vintage tinsel and Shiny Brites.
There is nothing like the real thing and a few special vintage ornaments are all this tree from Vintage Society Co needs. The chunky wool blanket as a tree skirt looks like snow.
Brooklyn Limestone keeps it simple with a wood bead garland on her flocked tree.
If one tree is good, two is way better and I especially love the way My 100 Year Old Home turned vintage wood crates into tree skirts brimming with ornaments.
I love the vintage green ornaments, including a beautiful tree topper, on Faded Charm Living’s tree.
This tree gets festive with touches of red, black and white and how fun is the antique piano bench turned Christmas tree stand from Adams and Elm Home.
My friend Doreen of Hymns and Verses bought the same tree as the two I have in my dining room! I love the way you can see the bark between each branch and how her color scheme carries down to her beautifully wrapped gifts.
Just look at the way the ornaments pop between the branches of this tree! It seems like there was a memo passed around where everyone, including Emily Henderson, decided to decorate their trees in black, white and red!

Now let’s take a look at my sparse Christmas trees including the pair in my dining room. I covered them with vintage Shiny Brite ornaments last year and love how all sides of the ornaments can be seen.
I’ve had this little feather tree for years (in fact, I have two) and love displaying small ornaments on it. Vintage Pepsi bottles create a “tree skirt” which makes it the perfect kitchen counter tree.
Although not quite as sparse, this Christmas tree is the most realistic looking one that I have because of it’s irregular shape. I went with an all white theme including 1600 string lights, clip on candle lights and these faux snowballs that I just nestled in the branches.

Here’s my little Charlie Brown tree complete with tiny little pine cones. I added a flock of bright red cardinals.
