A Very Merry Mets Christmas Tree!

I had some free time today so I decided to set up my New York Mets Christmas tree!

The idea for the tree came about on a recent trip to Marshall’s, where I found a Mets logo tree skirt and a dozen Mets ornaments that came in plastic candy cane-shaped packaging.

And from there, a few trips to CVS, Target, and Walmart allowed me to add orange and blue lights, several baseball-themed ornaments, and even Mets candy canes to the tree.

So tonight I set it all up, complete with a real Mets baseball tree topper. What do you think?

As a diehard Mets fan, I’m super excited with how it turned out. I really was able to get creative putting it all together and it’s the perfect off-season tribute to my beloved Metsies!

I don’t know how I can top this next year… unless I decorate a full-size Mets tree! Uh oh… now I really want to!
