Planning a quinceañera can be a daunting experience. Trying to decide on color schemes and dress styles while looking into hiring the perfect DJ and photographer can drive anyone insane. One thing you can do to make the process more enjoyable is to plan a themed party!
When you are deciding what kind of theme to go with keep these things in mind:
Choose a theme that you love whether it be superheros, a television show, or a hobby. You will have to look back at pictures from your party so make sure you can live with your decision.
There is such a thing as going overboard!
A quinceañera marks the transition from being a girl to a woman, make sure your event doesn’t look like a toddler’s birthday party. Find a balance between childish and mature. For example have the cake and party favors go with the theme, but refrain from having characters on your table cloths. A good decorator knows the difference.
Make sure you inform your guests of the theme. A perfect place to do this is in the invitation. Picking the right invitation will set the tone for the party itself. If you want your guests to dress up in accordance with the theme or wear a certain color this should be expressed in the invitation. The sooner you get the information out to the guests the easier it will be for them to prepare.
If you are going to have party favors have them match the theme AND make them edible. Let’s be honest, how many times have you gone to a party and left the party favor on the table? If your guests see a delicious cookie or candy on the table they cannot help but nibble on the treat at the party or save it to take home to a loved one. With a masquerade party, have the company you hire to make your cake also make cookies in the shape of masks!
