Throwing a birthday party can be quite daunting. Careful planning is essential, not only to guarantee the success of the party, but also to help ensure that as the host, you’re able to relax and enjoy the festivities along with the other guests. See below for a list of some considerations you might like to keep in mind:
History of Quinceanera
A young lady makes her debut before the church and society at the age of 15 in a rite of passage known as the quinceañera , celebrating the girl’s transition from childhood to adulthood. Hispanics on the border have continued the custom of making a girl’s 15th birthday one of the most important and memorable events on her life.
Preparations for the quinceañera often begin a year in advance, for it is usually done on a grand scale. There are guest lists and menus to compile, invitations to order, the mass, the celebration hall and band to schedule, flowers to order and, as in wedding, attendants to select.
The young lady carefully chooses 14 of her girlfriends and/ or relatives to be in her court. Each of the 14 girls, or damas, represents one year of the honoree’s life, with the 15th year represented by the debutante, or Quinceañera, as she is referred to, herself. Escorts for each one of the girls are also chosen.
The Quinceañera wears a dress similar to a wedding dress but with a few differences. On the border, the traditional dress is white, with a snug top and a bell-shaped floor length skirt, but this dress does not have a train. Some girls may choose a pink dress and in the Mexican interior, the Quinceañera’s dress may be any pastel color with white reserved for her wedding dress.
We can provide birthday party catering anywhere you please – residential homes, beaches, parks, community halls, surf clubs, function centers and more. If you’re not holding the event at home, be sure to check what amenities are available at your chosen venue.
Themes are a great way to make the party even more memorable. We’ve provided birthday party catering in the past to match many themes including Hollywood glamour; the 80s; casino royale; and international.
The birthday cake is the pinnacle of every party. You don’t have to be a domestic goddess to create a really spectacular cake that will make guests “ooh” and “aah”.
