Of the eight finalists in last week's ornament wreath challenge using, as I did here, a simple wire hanger… 


…this one stood out a hair above the rest. Congratulations, Lauren of Duluth, Georgia!


So to add even more gilded glamor to her décor, we're wrapping up an unusual vintage brass chamber candlestick (with snuffer!) from the butler's pantry, together with a pair of our very own 18" ivory tapers.


Thank you again, everyone, for sending in your wreaths! Check back tonight for all the decadent after shots of the elves at work.
