Home for the Holidays Decorating Contest: the Finalists!

We picked the finalists. You get to pick the winner! 

After reviewing all the entries for our Holiday Decorating Contest: Home for the Holidays, 2019 Edition, all I can say is: beautiful! There was so much warmth, festive spirit, creativity, and a few fur babies, too, which made it really tough to narrow it down to just 4 finalists.

We loved receiving all the pictures, catching a glimpse of so many homes (even international ones) decked out for the holidays, and interacting with our extended family of past, present, and future clients! You all rock and we thank you for playing!  

Here are our 2019 Home for the Holidays finalists:

Thompson Company Holiday Decorating Contest: the finalists

... now you get to pick the winner! Voting is taking place via Thompson Company, REALTORS Facebook page, and every vote counts (only once though!). All you need to do is to pick your favorite and to comment A, B, C, or D before the end of the year :) 

You do not need to be a Maryland resident, nor a contestant to cast your vote. You just need to join in the fun, and support your favorite entry. 

At stake is one delicious first prize! The winner will get to invite personal chef & nutritional coach Erin Martin Nelson, owner of Food Love, LLC to their kitchen where she'll compose a dinner for 2 that will - no doubt - make tastebuds sing and the winner's house smell amazing!

I like D the best.  They have all decorated very nicely though, so the judges did a great job of picking the finalists.
