Hands down our little guy’s favorite birthday gift was his train table. He asks for it as soon as he wakes up and it’s all he wants to play with all day. It’s crazy! The downside is that we live in a small house and there isn’t a place to hide it so I decided to use the table as part of our holiday decor. I had a ton of fun creating this Christmas train decoration.

The train table he got is the Imaginarium Metro Train Table. It’s really cool, it comes with the tracks, mountain, train house, bridge, a set of trains and helicopter, some people, trees and signs. I love that it is a whole little town so it’s easy to decorate especially with the mountain, bridge, and train house.
I was inspired by the dollar section of Target (who isn’t 😆 ) I found some amazing battery operated Christmas bulb lights and snowflake lights and went from there. After Target I went to Michaels because I knew they would have amazing little figures and trees to add to the table. You will definitely have to wander around Michaels because most of these items are in store only and they all seem to have different things in stock.
Here’s what I purchased for the Christmas train decoration table:
- Lights from the dollar section of Target: The bulb shape is perfect to outline the train house and the snowflakes are cute to wrap around the bridge. I will say the bulb shape sells out super quickly. I went to four different Targets to try to find them again with no luck.
- Battery operated light up Christmas Tree: This is the perfect size for a town square Christmas tree!
- Battery Operated Woodland Garland: The rustic look of this garland is perfect to wrap around the edge of the table. I got this at Michaels at it was 60% off!
- Miniature Glitter Deer: Any time Aiden sees a deer he yells “Reindeer” so I knew I had to add a little deer to the festive scene. I found this at Michaels.
- Mini Trees: I found a couple of different mini trees to use around the scene. I used the slightly larger decorated trees to sit on the bridge and the smaller ones in various places.
- Mini Wreaths: I found a two pack of mini wreaths to go on the mountain and the crane.
- Mini Santa: Of course, our scene wouldn’t be complete without Santa. We put him near the town Christmas tree and scattered mini gifts that we picked up around him.
Aiden loves the lights and all the extra little characters. It was so much fun to surprise him with this last week. Check out my saved Instagram story “Christmas Train” for a fun video of him playing with it.
This Christmas train decoration was so easy to put together and I think it adds a lot to our holiday decor. Afterall, trains sets around Christmas trees are a bit iconic we are just doing it in a modern way (or so I keep telling myself). I can’t wait to decorate his little town for every season!
