sponsored post: williams-sonoma $150 registry gift certificate giveaway

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Williams-Sonoma is one of my favorite places to shop. Could it be the Sprinkles Cupcakes, or the shelves stocked with Le Creuset, or the brilliant gadgets that blend, chop and mix looking beautiful all the while? I’m not sure, but I do know that Williams-Sonoma was the first place Jon and I registered when we were planning our own wedding and that to this day, some of my favorite, tried-and-true kitchen gadgets came from our W-S registry.

Here are just a few things I couldn’t live without…

  • The Le Creuset grill pan. We didn’t have a grill then an we don’t have one now. This grill pan is our saving grace when we’re craving fajitas or grilled chicken.
  • My KitchenAid mixer. I joke that the KitchenAid is the official signal that you’ve arrived and have an adult kitchen. ;) My KitchenAid has a special place in our kitchen and gets its fair share of use, whether I’m making sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving or cupcakes on a Sunday night for two.
  • Laguoile steak knives. They look beautiful on a table.
  • The Le Creuset dutch oven. Five words: Ina Garten’s potato leek soup. Make it.
  • Hemstitched napkins and placemats. You’ll be thankful for such a versatile set of linens.

If you’re hoping to stock your kitchen with goodies from Williams-Sonoma, I have a gift for one lucky {engaged} reader: a $150 gift certificate to Williams-Sonoma. To enter:

  • Register with W-S and leave a comment here on your favorite items.
  • If you’re already registered, add at least five new items to your registry and come back to tell me about your favorite items on your list.
  • The contest ends on 5/22. The winner will be announced on 5/23.
  • This contest is only open for wedding registries and you must create a registry to enter

Good luck!
