Central Ohio residents really know how to get into the holiday spirit!

That was apparent from the nearly 250 entries received for the Holiday Indoor Decorating Contest by Oakland Nurseries and The Dispatch this holiday season.

A panel of judges from the newspaper and landscape and garden business chose the top three winners featured below. Congratulations to them and thank you to all who participated!

First-place winner

∙ “The Sleigh Has Arrived” by Pam Gruenwald of Baltimore, Ohio

Gruenwald will receive a $500 Oakland Nurseries gift card.

The Gruenwald family's holiday decor.

Pam Gruenwald, 68, and her husband, Mark, 69, capture the warmth and love of the holiday season with their decor. The stockings and colorful presents represent their nine grandchildren, who range in age from 17 months to 8 years old.

The children not only gather at their house to open presents but play a game. Their grandparents hide a gingerbread ornament, and the first child to find it will get the first bite of a giant, homemade gingerbread cookie.
