2019 Holiday Decorating Contest: deck your halls and enter to win!

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... 

At Thompson Company, REALTORS® we are getting into the Holiday spirit, and would love for you to join us! We hosted our first Holiday Decorating Contest last year, and had so much fun that we decided to turn it into an annual event, and support a locally owned small business in the process. 

Deck your halls! Send us a picture! Enter to win a delicious dinner for 2 prepared in your own home* by the talented Erin Martin Nelson, owner of Food Love, LLC.

Erin is a certified integrative health and nutrition coach, her business Food Love, LLC is a personal chef service centered around healthy eating and food preparation for people with health concerns or food allergies/intolerances. So if you are committed to eating healthier but are short on time and/or knowledge, this is definitely a contest you don't want to miss! 

Butternut Squash Coconut Soup * Baked Coconut Shrimp with Mango Salsa * Chili-glazed Chicken * Honey Macadamia Cod * Lentil Walnut "Tacos" * Moroccan Lamb Burgers * Sweet Potato Ginger Casserole * Thai Vegetable Coconut Curry 

This is just a small sample of the deliciousness that could be prepared in your kitchen very soon! So deck your halls, send us a picture, and you could win a dinner for 2! 

Because we found it so very hard to present just one prize last year, we decided to also gift the first runner up with a bottle of wine from a local MD winery this year. 

The rules are pretty simple! All you need to do is:

1. Like Thompson Company, REALTORS® Facebook page (if you aren't a fan already that is)
2. Either post a picture on our page OR email one (or 2 or 3) to us: thompsonco.realtors@gmail.com.
3. You must be at least 21 years old to enter, and live within 30 miles of Columbia, MD.
4. Picture(s) must be received by December 23rd, 2019.
5. We will pick the 4 finalists and have a public poll via Social Media to determine the winner!
6. The winner will be announced 01/01/2020.
7. No purchase necessary.*

I love seeing how others have decorated their homes for the holidays Brian England - and I love to decorate, too. So many put so much effort into it, we thought our contest would be a fun way to showcase that, interact with our extended family of clients, and support a local small business in the process! 

Last year was great, can't wait to see this year's entries!
