Most Original: Georgia Dance Conservatory

Georgia Dance Conservancy used costumes from The Nutcracker, transforming its storefront “into a delightful fantasy-scape of unique materials and textures – from a hanging curtain of satin toe shoes to a graceful tutu skirt fashioned of evergreen fronds and playful characters shown in animated silhouette behind the drape of a Victorian skirt,” Clementine Creative noted.

Merissa Davis, partner at Clementine Creative Agency, said organizers and participants “had so much fun” seeing the holiday spirit on full display around the Square.

“We were excited to have not just returning faces, but also new merchants to join the fun after last year’s success,” she said. “And not only did the merchants really get into the game, but we had even more People’s Choice award votes than last year.”
