Sponsored Giveaway: $150 Williams Sonoma Gift Card!

UPDATE: The entries have been tallied up! With the help of Random.org the winner of $150 from Williams-Sonoma is Jessica! We’ll be in touch with details, Jessica, and thanks to everyone who entered!

After a week of incredible wedding and entertaining inspiration from the participants of the Inspired Creations Contest, I am so excited to have a fabulous giveaway to end the week from none other than the entertaining gurus at Williams-Sonoma! As an avid entertainer, registering at Williams-Sonoma was at the top of my list of priorities when my husband and I were planning our wedding. They have, hands down, the best selection of cookware, kitchen gadets, tabletop accessories and barware for entertaining friends and loved ones.

This time of year I’m thinking of all the pool parties we’ll hold this summer and, because many of our friends live out of town, pool parties on Saturday afternoons tend to include brunch on Sunday mornings. For me this means stocking up on colorful summer-inspired barware for margaritas on the rocks (hold the salt, please) and homemade sangria. In the morning, Belgian waffles, freshly squeezed orange juice, a casserole dish of cheesy homefries (prepped in advance and tucked in the oven in the morning), mimosas and coffee take center stage. I like to take the bed and breakfast approach to hostessing – cozy beds, full bellies and happy hearts.Today, Williams-Sonoma is giving away a $150 gift card to one lucky reader! Wondering how to get your name in the hat? Here are the official contest rules –

1. To enter, set up a registry with Williams-Sonoma or if you’re already registered with them, simply add another item to your registry and note in the comments here what item you added.
2. All entrants must leave a comment here on this post and mention that you have registered with Williams-Sonoma and share with me your favorite registry item. (Maybe it’s that KitchenAid stand mixer you’ve been eying for years or the pretty champagne glasses for mimosas at your next brunch!)
3. Readers who include their public registry link in the comment will receive an extra entry!
4. The contest is open until 8:59am EST on Friday, April 15, 2011 when one winner will be announced!

I am registered with Williams-Sonoma and by far my favorite item I’ve added to my registry is the Premium Margaritaville Trio Frozen Concoction Maker (seen here in my registry https://secure.williams-sonoma.com/registry/N2883726/manage-registry-list.html). I love entertaining large groups of friends and this amazing machine will make sure we are always ready to have a good time with a drink in our hands!

The KitchenAid pasta maker attachment. I finally have my first KitchenAid and I love it!

WOW what a giveaway!!!! There are so many things that I would love off the site. Thanks for giving me the idea of creating a wishlist so the hubbs can finally know what to get me. If I were being sensible I would get the OXO Set of 10 pop containers. But if I wasn’t I would go for the Mother of Pearl serve ware. It’s so beautiful. Here’s my registry https://secure.williams-sonoma.com/registry/N1070860/manage-registry-list.html
Loved this, thanks and really enjoy your blog.


I am registered at Williams-Sonoma for my wedding this September! My favorite item on my registry is my monogrammed hemstitched linen table runner. :)

What a wonderful giveaway! I love Williams-Sonoma and registering with them was a breeze! I think my favorite items are our everyday Apilco dishes and of course the pasta attachment. I would probably buy the pasta attachment if I won! Fingers crossed. Since I was already registered with them I added a mortar and pestle to my list. Here is my registry: https://secure.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2725830/manage-registry-list.html

We already had a registry and I added the All-Clad Instant Read Thermometer. My favorite item however is the KitchenAid Stand Mixer Pasta Press Attachment! Here is a link to our registry: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2700795/registry-list.html

Ceramic ginger grater! I love fresh ginger tea, and the most difficult thing is trying to grate it without it becoming foamy! This would be perfect!

Here’s my registry: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2697182/registry-list.html

Great giveaway. I was registered at a couple other places, until stumbling on WS website. Some of my favorite items are the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and the Staub Grill pan. I already have a registry at: https://secure.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2735342/manage-registry-list.html so I added the Paysage Serving bowl to our list for an extra entry.


How exciting! I always find myself admiring the Beaba collection when I’m in William Sonoma. If I won I would get the Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker as seen in my registry:


I have just added a couple items including a new muffin pan and an ice cream maker :) https://secure.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2420972/manage-registry-list.html?cm_type=gnav


I love, love, LOVE anything Le Creuset! And would adore to have one to start my collection! :)

I registered at WS http://www.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2766406/registry-list.html, and I was very excited to see the Fritatta Pan. I really like how the pans can come apart and be used just as a small frying pan and a crepe pan. It’s always great when a kitchen tool is good for more than one thing.


I am registered at WS for my wedding August 20, 2011!
It was such a joy to browse and select such wonderful products, as seen in my registry: http://www.williams-sonoma.ca/registry/showRegistryList.do?registryId=2707282
Most recently I added the Staub Cocotte, in Sapphire Blue!
If I have to pick my favorite item, it is the Cupcake Courier! Such a precious and practical item! Holding 3 dozen cupcakes, with space for icing, is wonderful news for a baker like me! It makes me dream of baking sweet cupcakes for my future children…sigh.


I was registered at Williams-Sonoma for my wedding this past October. Today I added to that registry the OXO Stainless-Steel Mandoline
Item #: 74-2590552. It can be seen at my registry here: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2556629/registry-list.html. It would be really hard to narrow down my absolute favorite item on that registry. We did receive the KitchenAid stand mixer we asked for, and of course, I love it. I’d wanted one for years, and now it’s one of my most-prized possessions! :) There’s nothing you can’t do with it, and since I love baking, suddenly it’s so much easier to do all that baking. :)

Maria Malaveci

Already registered at WS, and I have added simplehuman™ Steel Frame Dish Rack, White!

Thanks so much.


Caroline K.

I love WS’s Bee Pressed-Glass Bud Vases! I wanted to register for 5 sets…


Who doesn’t love WS? My fiance and I narrowed down our favorites to some sensible wedding present options, but one of my personal favorites is the Le Creuset Bistro Grill pan that you can plop down on the stove and make your own little burgers. Super useful when you’re just starting out as a couple and living in an apartment! We’re registered here: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/registry/2736035/registry-list.html?cm_ite=GiftGiver&cm_pla=WCSearchResults&cm_cat=Registry&bnrid=3210001&cm_ven=WedCh


We registered at Williams Sonoma really soon after getting engaged – its a favorite store! I’ve just added a potato ricer and kitchen torch! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

Michelle Moran

Item #: 51-1782671
