The most cheap quinceanera decoration are balloons, all you have to do is rent the helium gas tank at a party rentals and start doing stuff with them.
How about eatable table centerpieces? Who does not like candy?

Ok for very elegant receptions, there is nothing that beats the traditional flower arrangement, they just look spectacular, but they can be a little pricy.
Finding that perfect quinceanera dress may seem like a difficult thing, but we’ll break it down for you, give you some pointers and tips, so this process will be pleasant and a nice experience.
Finding the Right Quinceanera Dress Color
Yes, the most important thing is the color, after deciding this, everything is much easier. Ask yourself, What’s my favorite color? Many top choices are: Hot Pink or Magenta which is a strong pink. Purple is very modern too, you will see it everywhere. Turquoise never goes out of style, if you’re not familiar with turquoise, the turquoise color is like a cyan in your home printer but with a little bit of yellow, to make it a little greener, but not green at all.
There are many other dress colors like: Yellow, White, Black, Gold or even new combinations of two colors or even multiple colors. The quinceanera dress color is very important since, this color will probably will take over your entire decoration and accessories. Now, a very good tip will be that, lets say that you choose purple as your color, it is allow to decorate your tables, etc. with another color to complement the purple, let’s say brown. So your decorations can be purple and brown, they don’t have to be only purple, only purple will be the traditional, and some might say not so modern or up to date.
This year the color silver or gray is very in, you can see it on the dresses and all types of decorations. I just love these masquerade quinceanera invitations with the silver background, perfect for your mask or masquerade theme, in this invitation the mask and lettering can be personalized with your favorite color. I also love the elegant paper it is printed on, it gives it that elegant touch.

If you’re in the planning process of your quinceanera, and have not decided on a theme, today let’s talk about a masquerade theme for your quinceanera. Of course the first thing that goes into mind is masks, but don’t forget that feathers go into this theme also.
There are many types of masks available, many very expensive, since they are handmade. You can also buy them blank or plain white and paint them yourself adding a special color of your theme. It would be a cool project to do.
I have not really seen any masquerade dresses, I have seen zebra pattern dresses but not masquerade.
Masquerade Quinceanera Invitations
I love these invitations, since the background color can be personalized to any color, and the black mask looks very nice. When looking for quinceanera invitations I always like something different and unique.
Any masquerade theme is not finish with a little something extra as decorations, of course you can have masks, but masks are sometimes only used for the dances.
You can incorporate something on the cake, since the cake is a very important focus point in your party. You can also have a little collage of masquerade theme for your pictures, just a little space where you can take pictures.
Another good idea is to have some masks for the waiters and staff. At the entrance of your reception you can give out some inexpensive plastic masks also.
The best quinceanera cake has to be delicious and good looking, it also has to match the theme to your decorations. The new trends is to make it with zebra, or any other animal prints, colors have to be bold, hot pink, turquoise, black, lime, purple.
Are you a fan of converse shoes, many people are, then how about the theme of converse all star for next quinceanera party celebration or swewt 16. You can do the invitations, favors or decorations with the following: stars, neon colors, hot pink laces, tenis shoes. I have seen many bailes sopresa with this theme, but how about taking it to the next level right. If you have a cool idea for a cool quinceanera theme, leave your comment below.
Planning a quinceanera is always a big task, even more if you have not done one before. Well we’re here to help, feel free to browse our site for more tips, ideas, comments and insider stuff to all quinceanera. Well, lets get started. First of all we’re going to need a date, so start looking for reception halls in your area, one thing we need to know before looking reception sites is an idea of how many people it will hold. So we need the your number of guests, bigger quinces need a bigger salon right! Also don’t forget to include the dance area, check that the reception site has a good space for your corte de honor to dance their dances, surprise dance, etc.
The Quinceanera Reception Sites
With your number of guests in hand, ask around hotels, banquet halls, if possible go look at the place before deciding on it. Just ask if your date is available, but don’t sign the contract yet, because if you want a religious ceremony before it, then you must find a church close to your city that will do it for you in the same day. I guess locking the place and church would have to be done together, nowadays is becoming very difficult to synchronize these two. But with a little patience and time it can be done.
The Church / Religious Ceremony
If you want a traditional religious ceremony on your quinceanera, then the best thing to do is lock your church date first and then with plenty of time look for a salon. When it comes to locking places, time will be your only friend, ask the church administrator to lock your date in advance, many do it even one year earlier. Many new quinces don’t even have a religious ceremony anymore, many don’t do it because of the synchronizing dates hassle, or just because they’re not religious enough. Many others that really want to have one, do it in a different church and just have a blessing by a pastor. Many others don’t want to pay for it since some catholic churches have a very high price. Whether you’re having one or not, it is cool both ways.
This is very important, make your list very early in the planning process. Don’t be shy this is a tradition, and a very good one, it allows us to have many quinceaneras in this economy.
The Quinceanera Dress
Everything gets easier after picking the right quinceanera dress. The next step in your quinceanera planning project is to pick your quince dress, the color of your dress will dictate the theme colors, or at least give you some ideas for the decorations, favors, invitations, etc. When picking out your dress the big question is the color, what’s your favorite one? Turquoise, Hot Pink, Lime, Purple, Black or even Orange. Should I buy the dress on a store or online? Well, online is a little cheaper but, it may not fit you perfectly, and then you will have to pay for fixing it.
Hire a choreographer for your traditional dances, baile sorpresas. I’ve seen choreographers work with a group of damas and chambelanes for as long as 6 months. It all depends how many hours per week you guys practice. The more people you have in your corte de honor the more difficult it is, since moms have to drive them to your home or place to where they practice. Also, you have to feed them all, or at least buy some snacks and drinks. Hiring a choreographer is becoming very expensive that’s why some people make up the dances themselves, or have a sister that had their quinceanera already, and is a little creative with dances and is up to the challenge.
Photo and Video
Finding a really good one is very important, this will be the only thing left after everything comes to an end. If you don’t want any surprises, ask for a sample video, a good videographer and photograher is not shy to show his work. Always allow plenty of time for the production of your video and photos, video editing and good photo retouching takes some time.
Many people do their own food preparation and serving, but at the end say, “I should not done that, I din’t have time to enjoy my party”. The Hispanic tradition is to serve your guests even if they arrive the party at 11 p.m. How crazy is that right! If you’re going to do this, always hire a waiter to do the job for you, or ask some relative to help you with that. Of course there are companies that do this for you too, they prepare the food, and serve it.
Ask your video guy to recommend you a DJ. Or hire one that you know from a friends party. Hire one that has a good light show, or plenty of lights to make the place feel like a party. When it comes to hiring dj’s, ask about their onstage personality, and see if you like it. This is important since, sometimes people say. “No hablaba nada” or “Man, He didn’t shut up”. This is very true, some people want all the introductions there can be, announcement for every part of the event, etc. and many people want the dj, just to dj and be silent.
The Quinceanera Invitations
There is no party without guests right! Order your invitations 2-3 months in advance, people usually do it in 2 months in advance, but many others do it the same month, please don’t leave it to the very last 2 weeks, since you have to allow one week for production and another week for shipping. Many homemade invitations take even longer to make, allow 2-3 weeks for production and one week for shipping. If you’re ordering online, double check your names and last names, since this is the thing the stores don’t change. If you’re planning on having your padrinos on your invitations, choose an invitation with plenty of space, if not any invitation will do.
Ok, I think you can make a party now, you have all the basics, a dress, a place, the food, the dj, some one to video tape it, guests, of course there are many things left to do, but we’ll talk about them later. Feel free to browse around and read many other of our posts, happy quinceanera planning!

Las tiras de tela o de otros materiales son buenos complementos que pueden estar distribuidos por algunos lugares de tu fiesta, lo que le dará un toque sutil de encanto y festividad a la celebración de quince.
El theme es que más allá de la decoración de las mesas y de las sillas que muchas veces la realiza un proveedor de estos servicios, existen ornamentos o adornos que complementan todo este arreglo para que tu fiesta luzca bien padre.
Tambien puedes manda hacer estos arreglos, sin embargo, con algo de ingenio se pueden elaborar bonitos adornos con poco presupuesto y poniendo algo de esfuerzo para elaborarlos con nuestras propias manos. Por ejemplo, las cadenetas son bastante simples de hacer y pueden ir a lo largo de las paredes o sobre los bordes de las paredes para darle un aire más festivo al ambiente central.
Lo clasico es utilizar globos a los cuales se les ata algunas cintas decorativas y se les coloca también en paredes, colgando de los techos, tras las sillas, en el pasillo de ingreso de la quinceañera, entre otros lugares. Todo esto se ve bonito pero no pongas muchos.
No te olvides de adornos tan sencillos como simples arreglos florales que tú misma puedes elaborar con flores de tu propio jardín. Existen tambien las serpentinas que pudes hacer con tus propias manos y hasta con papeles de colores a manera de origami, los mismos que puedes distribuir adecuadamente por los espacios de tu salón.
Salon Decorations – The time for your salon decorations may take even 8 hours to do. Consult your decorating people. Many people want to video tape the decorations before the guests arrive. This looks very cool for your movie, but sometimes it can not be done. Remember that communication is the key to success when your planning your perfect quinceanera.
