I’ve created monthly Fab Kids meetups and themed playdates and have recently made them open to the public and fans of my Instagram page, @fab_kids.  (Check this page out for more nerdy fashions!)

I was able to easily create this adorable invite through Paperless Post whom I love for fashionable evites on-the-go. You can select from numerous backgrounds, paper liners, envelopes, fonts and even stamps.  They make it super easy to create a stylish online invite (and even sell coordinating paper products too)!

Our 2nd nerdy playdate in the park was held this year at Elevated Acre, a little-known rooftop park with a great view of the East River, South Street Seaport and Brooklyn.

Photo1-10Sort of a secret plaza, it was the perfect place for the kids to run wild and have a private park all to themselves.

Here are the kids in their nerdy gear.  Don’t you just love the suspenders, bowties and glasses?

Of course my daughter ended up accessorizing herself with the stickers (as shown below).  Check out all the nerdy details!  (see school bus on J’s hair clips, glasses and crayons on her friend’s outfit and our nerdy photo props)9.28-001 Some of us moms got in on the nerdy fun too!IMG_8337back to school party back to school playdate

The book swap was simple.  Everyone brought in at least one book to swap and trade in for another.  First come first serve so the first person to arrive received a number 1 and was the first to be able to choose a book.  It’s a great way to re-use, and recycle during this back-to-school season.  Kids outgrow and get bored of items so fast.  So when they’re able to trade in and pick out a new book to read, it’s fun for everyone!IMG_8356

Everyone received a nerdy necklace (shown above) for attending and in the end, new friends and some adorable memories were made.

First impressions are important and invites are your event’s first impression.  So when I came across Paperless Post, (think designer evites), I couldn’t wait to throw my next fab fete.

They bring design and fashion to the world of online invites – something Facebook and Evite invites sadly lack.  AND they let you customize the colors, fonts, wording and envelope liner.  What more could you ask for?

I’m planning to use these for my change of address, holiday cards, and engagement party invites – yes I said engagement because I just got engaged!!  FabGabBlog readers will soon be hearing and seeing a lot more about wedding planning in this blog!  (I’m thinking about using the cute black and white bowtie design for my engagement party invite.  It’s not too masculine, not too feminine and adds just the touch of fanciness and elegance that I’m looking for.

And thanks to Paperless Post, all you FabGabBlog readers can enjoy the 25 free custom evites! Enjoy!
