The princess quinceanera theme is one of the most popular quince themes–and for a good reason! This theme is pretty, classic and really, who doesn’t want to be a princess for a day?! This theme can be traditional—such as horse & carriage–or more dramatic–such as a Disney Princess theme. Here are some thoughts on how to pull off this truly enjoyable theme~
Color Scheme: Although pink may be the color that comes to mind first, you could go light blue (like Cinderella blue), dark royal blue, several shades of blue, purple—really the options are very open! Yellow, gold and white is another color combination that would be very pretty for this theme.
Venue: A ballroom would be ideal for a princess quinceanera theme, but if you can’t get a ballroom—work with your venue to make it royal! Take your venue and make it fit into your theme through the decorative elements of your party.
Invitations: You are in luck if you choose this theme, because invitations for a princess quinceanera theme are abundant! I found this gorgeous invitation: Fairytale Dreams Quinceanera available through Michaels Custom Invitations.
There are styles with tiaras, carriages, princesses, castles–even glass slippers. A scroll style invitation would go amazingly well with this theme!
The Dress: Chances are, you already have a really good idea of what you want your quince dress to look like. And for sure, most quince gowns reflect the ultimate princess gown. You want to choose a graceful and sweet princess gown, with sparkle and lots of pretty details. If you go Disney on your theme, go for an all-out Cinderella or Belle gown. Gloves and a beautiful updo with a tiara always complete a princess look. You could even top off this look with glass slippers!
Quince Court: If you go traditional, match your court to your colors. If you go Disney, you could literally dress your damas as Disney princesses (there are SUPER cute ideas for this on Pinterest). The chambelanes can wear a tie to match the damas they are paired up with.
Decorations: By brainstorming princess keywords, you will get tons of ideas for decorations. Castles, tiaras, crowns, princess dolls, horses, carriages, candles, flower petals, glass slippers, rhinestones, ribbons, bows, tulle, thrones and princess scepters are all elements associated with princess life. Use any combination of these elements to create centerpieces and table decorations.
A balloon arch with your colors is always a nice touch. Depending on your budget and taste, you may want to add a princess backdrop, something that adds to your decor, and your guests can take photographs in front of.
Entertainment: Whether you go with a DJ or a band, a well-rehearsed and traditional waltz for you and your court to dance to will be necessary.
Food: A sit down dinner would be nice for this theme. Select some food that’s not so messy. Tea sandwiches, veggies, real silverware, glasses, plates and real napkins help keep this theme fancy.
The Cake: There are many options for your cake with this theme, or you could go with a cupcake tower or a dessert spread with strawberry donuts, princess cake pops and chocolate covered strawberries. The ultimate treat: a pink chocolate fondue setup, with lots of options for dipping like marshmallows, pretzels and fresh fruit.
Party Favors: A marshmallow pop covered in plastic with a ribbon wrapped around it, would be simple and yummy (and also DIY friendly!).
Special Touches: A soda fountain would be a nice surprise for your guests. For the little girls, set up a little costume area, complete with some princess outfits, heels, tiaras and a mirror. Or, invite them to come dressed as a princess to your party. If your quince is outdoors or in a more country setting, riding into your party on a horse would be spectacular.
How will you carry out your princess quinceanera theme? And will you be having a traditional princess theme or will you go with the Disney princess theme?
