The honorable mention went to 510 South Fairfax Street with the magnolia, boxwood and nadina wreath.

The judges in the Old Town Walled Garden Club walked the streets of Old Town last Friday and found a few homes welcoming in the holidays. This year the first-, second- and third-place winners will be treated to gift certificates from Reunions Boutique, Buzz and Faccia Luna. The judging is based on the use of natural materials created by the homeowners that enhance the doorways of their homes in Old Town.
