Lemonade stand birthday party – IjoBaby Adorable Couture

Our very own Ola, has been a busy bee planning & plotting her adorable daughters lemonade stand themed birthday bash and we have a double treat for you today sure to take you down memory lane on those childhood delights!

Check out the scrumptious details of The Invitation
White wood grain card-stock, die cut to show of the horizontal lemon slices across the grain. Ola is famous for referring to her daughters as her “lil’ chicks” so she had their names cleverly initialed on the birds on the invite and envelope. Colors are pink raspberry, canary, blanc, mandarin and a hint of lime!
Wordings were right from her lil chicks mouth… so cute! Sentences only a kid would use.
Below are the yummy close-ups!

Aren’t these photos so divine!? We were so inspired by these adorable custom IjoBaby suites we created a special palette board for Ola’s lil’ chicks upcoming summer bash. Enjoy!

Summer is here and it is HOT! Mama is too hot to work, so you decide to put your munchkins to work! Big sister Z will be in charge of making the lemonade, while kid sister Nai will help assist you with making the delicious lemon raspberry cupcakes. Mmmmm, this sure will get the neighbors popping over for a surprise visit in a minute!

Guests and the neighbors’ kids are arriving and it’s so warm outside but they are ready and all battered up in sunscreen. Mama looks divalicous wearing a sunshine summery dress. Your girls smile an irresistibly adorable smile that will keep the kids dropping coins in the lemonade money box all afternoon long.

Now that the day is over, mama relaxes and smiles with pride, while watching her girls count their money after a HOT day of work.

From the IJORERE team, we wish Ola’s little chicks a very happy sunshine filled birthday this weekend and we can’t wait to show you part 2 of what we are sure will be a well-detailed & colorful event!

Sweets & Bliss, The Unveiling of IJORERE The Invitation!

IJS-98_2While we are BEYOND excited for what the new year holds for IJORERE The Invitation, we can’t help but to tell you about IJORERE’s very own and very special event that took place just before the holidays!


The unveiling of IJORERE The Invitation was a high-end, intimate evening that took place at a cozy stationery & pen shop located in charming downtown Barrington IL.  IJORERE’s creative director and owner, Ola, worked diligently to create this exquisite event that gathered event planners, Barrington’s affluent socialites and a few of IJORERE’s most loyal supporters.


With the goal in mind of “quality, NOT quantity” these hand-picked honored guests enjoyed a night of sweets and bliss!  Sipping on fine wine and enjoying delicious delicacies as they perused through the fabulous displays of IJORERE’s custom wedding suites . Attendees were also able to feast their eyes on sneak peeks of  IJOBABY’s latest additions!

Enjoy viewing the highlights of this SPLENDID IJORERE!
