The rite of passage known as a quincenera (or, mis quinces) is a huge reason to celebrate, and no one knows that better than Party Fiesta Balloon Decor, whose team of expert balloon designers has helped make many a young lady’s 15th birthday the biggest day of her young life so far!
The quincenera represents the young girl’s passage into young womanhood, and families often start planning for (and saving up for!) the big event as many as two years in advance! Some quinceneras are treated almost like a mini wedding, because the preparations are often just as elaborate as a bride’s big day, and the young lady wears a stunning formal gown for the first time in her life!
At the quincenera mass, the young lady will often speak of her hopes and dreams for the future, and her parents will attest to their pride in how their young daughter has grown up. In addition to her mother and father, the birthday girl also celebrates others in her life to whom she has looked for guidance in what is known as the ceremony of the 15 candles, in which she presents a candle to 15 special people who have been influential and instrumental in her life!
Another important aspect of the quincenera is that it is supposed to represent the young lady’s first official co-ed dance (although this may not be the case for many young girls today), and she has a special escort among the other special young men and women who comprise her “court”!
In fact, the birthday girl is considered so regal on her big day that she even carries a royal scepter and wears a sparkling tiara as she is treated like a princess throughout the event! Party Fiesta has designed balloon decorations for many a quincenera, and, on many occasions, after an exceptional quincenera, the families return to Party Fiesta so they can work their quincenera magic for the younger daughters when it’s their turn to turn fabulous 15!
