We were honored to receive so many beautiful images of your holiday home decorations. Our 2017 Decorate Your Home for the Holidays Photo Contest was a merry success because of all of you and your willingness to spread and share #AnnaleeSmiles! We were inspired by your sparkling Christmas lights and creative and jolly home decorations. We’re thrilled you chose to be a part of a holiday tradition.
It was so difficult to choose the winners. We had to gather all our elves at the workshop and ask them to cast their votes! For every image chosen there were many other highly creative efforts. We just want to again say thank you for sharing and inspiring us all to be merry, festive, and spread smiles.
One winner was chosen in five distinct categories: Best Mantle or Fireplace, Best Holiday Tree, Best Table Centerpiece, Best Holiday Wreath, and Best Elf Display. Congratulations to all the first place winners in every category. Each first place winner will receive a $100 Annalee gift card. All runners-up will receive a $25 Annalee gift card to continue growing their holiday collections! And now to the winners. . .

What Our Collectors Are Saying…
“My Annalee journey started when I was a little girl and my amazing grandmother Joyce collected them. 3 years ago my grandmother passed away and her large collection was divided between my siblings and I. I adored my grandmother and feel honored to have something that was so treasured by all. In her honor, my children (her great grandchildren) now have the Annalee “bug” and we make it a mission to find new, adorable pieces to add to our collection! When I shared the news that I won, my daughters started jumping up and down! They were thrilled! I thank you for allowing us to continue our journey! Our little friends bring us “Joy” everyday!!”
