  1. I just found you, and I'm in the process of devouring your archives. I'm not as organized as you are, but you are absolutely welcome to mine. Second the windfall, though.

  3. I'm with Jeannine! Though "the anderson crew" is a new favorite: http://www.andersonfamilycrew.blogspot.com/

    By the way, I LOVE the quote at the end of your page...Anchorman is slapstick comedy perfection :)

  4. I haven't been back to the dash since college, but here are my suggestions:
    Graylyn, Millenium Center (I've been there for concerts, but I'm sure it would work since it's kind of a blank slate), and there might be somewhere in Old Salem that would work.

  5. I think you will love my friend Charmaine's blog - The Delicious Home: www.thedelicioushome.com. Love you blog, Jamie!

  6. I like 6th and Vine and Christopher's Global Cuisine is a fun, arty place for a party or a shower.

  7. I enjoy reading your blog and wish your amazing store was in Portland, OR. I have a blog
    www.cardigansandcouture.blogspot.com

    and links to some of my other favorites. So maybe you will enjoy mine or some of the blogs I follow!

    Cheers!

  9. Not sure if "swanky" can be found in the Dash, but I'd rec Camel City. The food is really good. 6th and Vine is fun too. Graylyn is nice but it's going to be $$$.

  10. What about SECCA? Not sure what kind of party you are throwing, but the art is always wonderful.

  17. Check out NOMA in Winston-Salem, not sure of the price but very great atmosphere. Our company CAN DECORATIVE PAINTING did the painting, if you go to our web site you can see photos.

  21. Cue the shameless blog plug.

    but seriously, come on over!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't know if you're looking for personal blogs or decorating blogs, but I have a list of about 50 that I read daily (includes lots of each). I'm sure you're more in the loop on decorating blogs, though! I used to live in Raleigh and my husband is from Winston-Salem (I'm actually flying up there tonight for a 1-year-old birthday party tomorrow!) I love your blog and your sense of style!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Drawn only from wedding experience: Indoor - Brookstown Inn. Outdoor - Tanglewood Manor House. SECCA would be nice, too. Maybe some gallery on 4th St could be rented out? It's hard to get swanky in Winston without going old south or stuffy, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I hope it's not too spammy to suggest my own blog, but I really think you might like it. How's this - I'll recommend a few others to be fair:

    nobiggie.net
    thecoterieblog.com
    jetsetcarina.blogspot.com
    inthelittleredhouse.blogspot.com

    And then there's mine:

  42. My first thought was the Millenium Center or SECCA, but those would be good for larger parties. For a smaller space, I suggest 823 Reynolda (www.823reynolda.com).

  43. 6th and Vine's patio is nice.

  44. Oh hell, since everyone else is doing it: I'm at www.magchunk.com. Home decor, some fashion, a love of built-in bookshelves. If I had MY windfall, it would include a store pretty much exactly like yours (but rainier, in Seattle)

  58. wow. there are a lot of people with blogs out there!

    as for SECCA - it's closed for remodeling until the summer.

    i'll be moving to winston-salem sometime this year to be closer to family. i'm also going to plan a wedding this year too, so i'm interested in all the recommendations here.

    i can't wait to move down and check out your store! it'll be a good excuse to explore more of the state. sidenote: if anyone has more winston-salem related advice, it is much welcome!

  61. I seem to recall you're starting an online store - that should land you a windfall - your stuff is totally unique, hip and friendly (ie not overly designed, trendy or impractical). Blogs to read? Have you been to Holding Court :)

    I've been in High Point for three months, bu unfortunately don't know much about Winston Salem (yet!). I'm hoping a visit to Raleigh and your store is in our near future.

    my blog is about toilets, curse words and vaginas. Not really pretty stuff.
