our christmas tree {+ a williams-sonoma GIVEAWAY!}

by amy on 15 December 2011

the giveaway is closed. congratulations to lucky commenter #128, chung-ah!

i hope that all of you are having a happy holiday season so far! i know i’m definitely getting in the spirit. yesterday, my husband + i finally picked out our christmas tree, strung the lights on, + decorated it with cool, vintage-looking ornaments. despite the fact that it was almost 70 degrees here in nashville (definitely different from decembers growing up in boston!), it still got me feelin’ all holidayish + festive. + i think the tree looks just lovely in our living room – what do you think?

so, now that our tree is up + decorated, i’m feeling all sorts of festive + giving. what does that mean for you? a giveaway! one lucky reader will win a $50 gift card to williams-sonoma. and the best news? the gift card is redeemable at williams-sonoma stores OR online, so even if you don’t have a williams-sonoma in your town, you can still enter to win!

Oh my gosh, I would so use a williams-sonoma gift card to get the Star Wars spatulas shaped like Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper. I’m a Star Wars geek. I’d probably put the rest towards Star Wars cookie molds or, if a practical mood strikes, a food processor.

Just tweeted about your giveaway for good measure!

I’m not 100% sure what I’d use the GC for … maybe some cutlery or some of their wonderful food items! :)

168 Emily December 19, 2011 at 2:42 pm

I’ve had my eye on a yogurt maker they sell for a few months now, I just haven’t been able to justify buying it.

169 BreAna December 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm

What an awesome giveaway!! I just can’t decide what I would use the gift card for…there are so many things I would love to buy….a pizza stone or a Le Creuset Stoneware Square Covered Casserole Dish, or maybe some fun things for my kids like crustless sandwich presses and cute baking molds.

I’d use it to buy some much needed Silpats! (Also, some cookie sheets to go along with them!)

177 Karen Kierce December 19, 2011 at 8:06 pm

I would use the gift card to buy an automatic breadmaker – yup I want the one that does it all!! Thanks, Karen

178 Heather December 19, 2011 at 9:06 pm

I really need a new cookie sheet, so that’s where my money would go! :-)

179 EA-The Spicy RD December 20, 2011 at 8:21 am

Love your tree and your pup! Ah….WS…I was just there yesterday shopping for gifts and saw many things I would enjoy myself :-) . At the top of the list would be a set of Painted Fig bowls that I bought for my best friend and her family. Christmas better get here soon, so I can give her the bowls, otherwise I might start using them myself :-)

180 EA-The Spicy RD December 20, 2011 at 8:23 am

187 heather December 20, 2011 at 12:52 pm

That’s a very shapely tree — Frasier fir? I like it! As for the question, I’d put the $50 toward either a marble rolling pin or a tablecloth. Wants or needs….

Cheers and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I do trust all of the ideas you have presented in your post.
They’re really convincing and will definitely work.
Still, the posts are very brief for starters. May just you
please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
