The Glamorous Gourmet’s Spring Giveaway featuring a Williams-Sonoma Farmers’ Market Herb Wreath!
March 22, 2016 / Stephanie Miskew / 27 Comments
Spring has finally sprung and with it so has every plant, flower and tree in our yard including the herb garden, orchids and crepe myrtles. Even our bougainvillea (aka “Boogey”), who we thought was on his last “legs” a few months ago, is now thriving and brimming with bright fuchsia blooms! In the spirit of the season, The Glamorous Gourmet is doing a Spring Giveaway featuring one of my favorite items: Williams-Sonoma’s Farmers’ Market Herb Wreath.
This beautiful, hand-made wreath is a veritable feast for the senses with its vibrant colors, myriad textures and natural aromatics. It is proudly made in the USA and features a variety of botanicals including blue lavender, purple Mexican sage, golden yarrow, creamy achilla of the pearl and orange safflowers as well as fragrant herbs such as marjoram, thyme, sage, bay leaves and pink pepperberries. All herbs and botanicals were grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides which is always a good thing. I’ve been ordering this wreath every Spring for the past few years and this year marks the first that Williams-Sonoma is offering it in three different sizes including 16,” 22″ and 30″ which range in price from $52-$126. Our Spring Giveaway is for a brand new, 16″ wreath and, with shipping included, is a $65 value!!!
As with our previous giveaways, entering to win this Williams-Sonoma Farmers’ Market Herb Wreath couldn’t be easier. Simply leave a comment at the end of this post and tell me your favorite Spring flower or herb and why you like it so much (i.e. color, smell, taste, memory). Entering is that easy and for additional chances to win, you can (1) sign up to receive our weekly newsletter by clicking here and/or (2) leave a comment on another one of our blog posts. Each additional comment will count as one additional chance to win. This giveaway is open to anyone 21 years of age or older who lives in the continental United States and ends Sunday, April 10th at 8:00pm EST when a winner will be randomly drawn and announced on our Facebook Fan Page. The lucky winner will also be contacted immediately to arrange shipping – again, the cost of shipping is included as part of the giveaway.

While our everyday wines are the vinous equivalent of a cozy blanket or comfy pair of slippers we slip into at the end of the day, at the other end of the spectrum are wines that are more akin to haute couture – think Chanel, Gucci or Dior. These “haute” wines are so meticulously-made, terroir-driven and exquisite, they imprint themselves… Read More
Key to learning about wine, sweet wines in particular, is a little term called Residual Sugar which is our Wine Word of the Week. While there are many factors that ultimately determine the perception of sweetness in wine, residual sugar is the actual amount of sugar left in a wine after the alcoholic fermentation – which can end in a… Read More

Ahhhh the bounty of late Summer! When I see all the beautiful produce at the Farmer’s Market, it REEEALLY makes me want to do this. The ripe, multicolored heirloom tomatoes seem to long for a drizzle of grassy green olive oil and generous sprinkle of crunchy Maldon sea salt, while the fragrant, downy peaches are begging to be bitten into,… Read More
If you’re anything like me, the word “clone” immediately conjures a host of 1970’s B-movies featuring body-copying aliens who seek to wreak havoc on the human race. When it comes to grapes, however, that source of many 70’s childhood nightmares couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, a GRAPE clone is actually a very good thing! While most plants… Read More
There aren’t many wines that can boast the popularity of rosé in recent years. Much like the Duchess of Sussex, this imminently appealing wine seemed to come out of nowhere and take the world by storm. Years later, we STILL can’t seem to get enough, and our desire shows no signs of waning anytime soon. But the truth is, rosé… Read More
