Hunting Sweet Designs

Hey guys -

I’m posting something a little different today and helping my friend Amy Atlas with a fun photo scavenger hunt she is hosting. There’s an opportunity to win a big bright blue prize if you want to play.

Here’s what’s happening. Amy will be sharing pictures across several blogs today from one of the dessert table chapters in her upcoming book, Amy Atlas’ Sweet Designs.


This is the first photo from the chapter she’s showing and the first stop of the scavenger hunt. (Hi there if you are just visiting for the hunt.)

This photo is a glimpse into the full table from the Pastel Pretty chapter in her book. Perfect for Easter. And just look at that Necco Wafer table runner. So cute. I think I see Necco Wafer kitchen curtains in my future.

If you want to play in Amy’s Sweet Easter Scavenger Hunt or even just see more pictures from her book before it’s out, visit Amy’s blog for rules and go here for the clues to the next blog locations popping up throughout the day. The next clue will be shared on her blog at 10:00 am. ET.

Now for the prize.
If you follow Amy’s clues throughout the day, you can enter for a chance to win a gorgeous Crystal Blue KitchenAid mixer on her blog today at 4 pm. She’s giving away 8 of them total. EIGHT! (that is one KitchenAid for one reader from each blog on the Scavenger Hunt) Pretty Awesome. So make sure if you enter, to tell Amy you are coming from Bakerella if you found out about the contest here.

And write the following code words down. You’ll need them to complete the hunt with code words from the other participating blogs:

is pretty in pink

Good Luck and start hunting.

UPDATE: Amy’s site went down before anyone could enter their answers to the scavenger hunt. Big bummer! But tomorrow she will be announcing when you will be able to submit your entries. I had fun with you today. I’m sorry we have to wait to see which one of you win. But thanks for playing and being so sweet and helping each other try and figure out the clues. I love you guys! So stay tuned to Amy’s blog for updates.

UPDATE 2: Here’s the information on how to enter the contest at 1 pm ET today (Friday, April 6th).


Can’t wait to see who wins.

Amy responded to a comment to Autumn’s post.
“Amy Atlas Events I am not giving a time yet. It will be some time tomorrow, but I have to first get the site back up. After I get the site up, then I will give everyone a time. It won’t be in the morning so I could give enough notice to international followers as well.”

From Amy:

You have all been so amazing. We knew there would be great support, but the response was so overwhelming that we just can’t get our site back up. I am so sorry. I’m trying to figure out a way to deal with this fairly for everyone. In the meantime, unfortunately, I have to hold off on the last post until tomorrow. Even if my site goes back, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to put the last post up so everyone has notice. I know you have all been patient.

Hi everyone, This is Amy. Hi Angie and everyone:) Thank you so much for playing. I am so sorry about this and yes, I am beside myself. I didn’t want anyone to be inconvenienced. I will put up a post and tell everyone of a new time to check tomorrow. I want to give notice to everyone and do this the fairest way possible. Angie – thank you so much for all of your support with this. It is so clear why you have these incredible followers. -Amy

I was starting to do this but don’t want to get fired from work. Then her blog went down because everyone was going on at the same time. At least the winners worked HARD for their prize. Good luck, folks!

Bakerella – Can you help us in finding out from Amy IF/When the winners have been announced? So many people have posted on her Facebook wall asking and no reply.. We are ALL eagerly on the edge of our seats..
Thank you :)

Yes, Please someone let us know what’s happenning with Amy’s contest.
To be honest, if they’ve known the winners since Friday (as was tweeted), it seems unnecessarily cruel to make people wait so long.

Lauren said...

@ Celeste! I totally agree! Its so irking that people are asking her on her facebook wall and she isnt even answering!.. After making everyone come back the next day to enter. Not too good on the people skills If you ask me.

Does anyone know who won? I guess it wasn’t me, but it would be nice to know who did. I had a lot of fun and it was exciting…by the way, what was the winning phrase? I had like 5 different possibilities, sent in the one I thought was right…

The winning phrase was: This sweet designs table is pretty in pink and perfect for Easter; You’ll be tickled pink by its polka dots and sweet surprises.

Does anyone know where I can buy the little spoon like things that were in a photo on from the Disney trip? They had something yellow & a cherry in them. Thanks!
Please forgive me if we are not supposed to be asking questions on the blog.
