ButterFridays!: Unique Baby Showers at IJORERE Atelier

Welcome to IjoBABY’s new Friday column, ButterFridays! ButterFridays is a weekly column dedicated to IjoBABY topics. The idea to call our column ButterFridays was evoked by our colorful IjoBABY logo & the day of Friday.

Butterfly logo + Day of Friday = ButterFridays!


"When I was pregnant with my 3rd child, I wanted a nice place, that wasn't in someone's basement, or the back room of a restaurant, or a small conference room at a hotel to host my baby shower. I couldn't find the perfect setting especially for expected mommies. There was only one thing to do, open a venue for baby showers!" ~Ola

IJORERE Atelier is the perfect and ONLY venue created for expected moms. We welcome all moms-to-be to IJORERE.  And the best part, we not only offer a beautiful premise, we can also create a unique IjoBABY theme to go along with your IJORERE!  Let's take a look at a couple of gorgeous themes that are timeless and chic:

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Based on the famous movie starring Audrey Hepburn, this theme features the traditional Tiffany blue as well as hints of black, pearls and plenty of little boxes!





Parisian Baby Shower

No surprises, we are IN- LOVE with Parisian themes! The appeal of France's capital can produce a très chic baby shower! Books, umbrellas, Eiffel Towers and macaroons cannot be missing from your sophisticated soiree. 





Gives us a call for more ideas and to book your date at our fabulous loft!
