2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest

Tis the Season  - It's time for the Mayfair Civic Association's "2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest"!
Working in conjunction with the Mayfair Business Association and the Mayfair Business Improvement District, the Mayfair Civic Association will be giving away prizes and the coveted "2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest Winner" lawn signs created by Aztec Signs to the Best Decorated Homes and Businesses in Mayfair.

Now pay attention because we've switched things up a bit this year!

In the past we've given awards to the Top 3 Best Decorated Homes in Mayfair, however it seemed as though corners, singles, and twin homes seemed to have a slight advantage since they had more real estate to work with. As a result, we have decided to break the Contest up into 3 Categories this year.

• Category 1 - Top 3 Best Decorated Corners, Singles or Twin Homes in Mayfair
• Category 2 - Top 3 Best Decorated Rowhomes in Mayfair
• Category 3 - Top 3 Best Decorated Businesses in Mayfair

This Contest is open to all residents and businesses of Mayfair who either currently are, or hopefully soon will become Mayfair Civic Association Members in the future.
How it works
  • Starting on Thanksgiving Day, you can nominate your home, or a neighbor's home that you feel best captures the Spirit of Christmas. 

  • Nominations can be submitted via Facebook on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook page, or you can email the nomination to

  • Nominations will be added to our "2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest Google Map" so that everyone can grab the kids and some hot chocolate and take a tour of Mayfair to see the beautiful entries for themselves. The Map will be posted shortly after the entries begin to come in, and it will updated daily on Facebook as well as the website.

  • As a courtesy to our surrounding neighbors who live outside of the Mayfair Civic Association boarders and are ineligible to win the contest, we will be more than happy to include your home on the Contest Map so that visitors to Mayfair can stop by and enjoy your decorations as well.

  • In keeping with the Twelve Days of Christmas theme, each entry will be scored by our Judges on a 1-12 scale with a 1 being the equivalent of a window cling, and a 12 being the equivalent of a Clark Griswold full blown Christmas extravaganza!  

  • Dress up the outside of your home with all things Christmas, and throughout the week of December 14th - 20th, our Judges will be cruising around looking for the Best Decorated homes and businesses in Mayfair! 

  • On Wednesday December 21st, our Contest winners will be announced, and prizes generously donated by our Mayfair Business Association Members will be delivered that evening to the 6 homes and 3 businesses in Mayfair that best capture the Spirit of Christmas!

The Rules
1. All entries must reside within the Mayfair Civic Association boundaries (found on

2.  All addresses and displays must be clearly visible from the street! (If your address isn't easily visible from the street, your home may be overlooked by our judges)

3. All nominations must include an address including the street name. Also, please indicate if your nomination is a Single, Twin, Corner, Row, or Business

4.  Since the Judges have several homes to score, all entries MUST remain lit until 11pm

This contest is a team effort, and without the hard work of the Mayfair Civic Association, the Mayfair Business Association, the Mayfair Business Improvement District, and our neighbors in Mayfair who go all out during the Christmas Season, it would not be possible - PROPS to you all! Together we can ensure that Mayfair continues to be a great place to visit, and an awesome place to live!
