Helloooooo! After a bit of a break SABH is back and I hope you’ll join in to kick the second half of 2014 off with a bang.

Sweet Adventures Blog Hop July 2014 - OmbreI’m excited to announce the July SABH theme: Ombre

ombre: adjective
having tones of colour that shade into each other

Ombre goodness trounces across Pinterest daily, waving gorgeous colour gradients from dessert plates and cake stands around the world. I however, have never created anything ombre and figured it wold make a perfect challenge for SABH. Can you imagine a whole hop of beautiful colour tints and fades?!

Now ombre desserts are more often than not layer cakes where the layers or the icing or both fade from white to pink or blue to purple or any thousand of other combinations, but just because most people make ombre cakes it certainly doesn’t mean that is the only option!

Maybe it’s a sweet ombre cocktail or chocolate with an ombre dusting of gold or silver, or even just three shades of chocolate and vanilla cookies! An ombre set of macaron shells, fudge, cheesecake, popsicles, trifle, ice cream or pretty much anything you wish. Yes, I could have started back up with something simple but where’s the fun in that?

This month I’ll be hosing when the hop opens (if you’re new around here I’m JJ from 84th & 3rd). 

The details:

  • Theme: ‘Ombre’
  • Hostess: JJ from 84th & 3rd
  • Hop opens: Monday 21 July 2014, 9 am (Australian Eastern Standard Time, Sydney)
  • Hop closes: Friday 25 July 2014, 11.59 pm (AEST)


People have asked in the past if a blog can link up multiple posts. The rule was only one post per blog per theme, however if you want to do multiple themed posts during the week and add them to the hop, I say go for it!

Remember… only new posts which go live during the week of the hop can be linked up.


Have you participated in 5, 10 or 20 hops?

We’d love to add you to The Adventurers Blogroll! Due to participants using multiple email addresses it has become difficult to manage on our own but we want to acknowledge our regular participants, please email sweetadvbloghop (at) gmail.com with links to your SABH posts and you’ll be added to be added to the list!
