Humans have been creating rituals surrounding the passage of children into adulthood since civilization began. The Aztec and Maya, for example, celebrated with baptismal-like ceremonies for both boys and girls as they entered puberty.
In fact, some believe this is where the modern quinceañera originated, along with the older Roman Catholic customs that colonizers brought from Spain.
Therefore, it’s not only important to the birthday girl; it’s also an important part of her culture. So to ensure it’s something she’ll always remember, here are some ideas to plan an unforgettable quinceañera.
Wedding planners have been creating theme weddings for years: garden weddings, winter weddings, rustic weddings, and so forth.
But have you thought about creating a perfect theme for other types of events? Conferences, baby showers, bar and bat mitzvahs, trade shows, anniversary parties, benefits . . . any type of event can be kicked up a notch with a compelling or fun theme.
The perfect theme can even help attract media attention and, thereby, more attendees. But don’t worry that you need to come up with the greatest theme ever for your event. To be memorable, it just has to be right for your attendees.
