This was the first ever Georgetown BID Holiday Window Competition.
Patisserie Poupon (1645 Wisconsin Ave. NW) won the first ever Georgetown Business Improvement District Holiday Window Competition by getting the most likes on Facebook for their window display. Voters could choose from 16 local businesses who took on the challenge of decorating their front windows with four or fewer materials. Patisserie Poupon used macarons, doilies, cake boxes and parchment baking paper. The BID wrote on its Facebook page, "It was a very close competition, and we'd like to acknowledge Hitched's second place in the voting, followed by Ella-Rue and Haagen-Dazs!"
Georgetown businesses are vying for the title of best decorated store
Fifteen businesses are competing in the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) Holiday Window Competition. This is the first year the BID has organized the event. Each business was allowed to use four or fewer materials to create a winter wonderland in their windows. Some businesses used materials from their stores to decorate. CB2 opted for glass, metal, mirrors and fabric to create its display and Bacchus Wine Cellar used wine bottles, boxes and a Christmas tree. Others went for a more traditional motif, like Ella Rue's garland, red bows, Christmas trees and lights and Duo's construction paper, cardboard and Christmas lights. You can vote online on the competition's Facebook page through Dec. 16th. Which is your favorite?
