I recently found out about The Adventure School out in Seattle by Dorothée…she always sends me the coolest links from the west coast! The Adventure School was founded back in 2006 by Cori and Aviva, and they’ve been planning cool parties and fundraisers ever since…these photos are from See Listen Taste Feel, a benefit for The Henry Art Gallery. While its not a wedding, there are always ideas you can pull away from ANY event. I love the idea of bringing in fun ways to get people to interact with each other…if you’ve got the space, totally bring in a ping pong table!

You know and love Rosenow Floral, but you may not have known about Fritts Rosenow, Erin’s new venture into custom boutonnieres. Its true that not every guy is a “rose on your lapel” kinda guy, so her designs are the perfect compromise…best of all, you can customize to any taste! I just love how quirky and fun they are!
Erin is offering Brooklyn Bride readers a 20% off discount which could apply towards floral bouquets and arrangements for California and Boston brides from Rosenow Floral, or towards custom, non-floral boutonnieres from Fritts Rosenow. Just mention Brooklyn Bride when ordering.
