What is a Quinceanera?

What is a Quinceanera?A Quinceanera (also known as a quince) is the celebration of a Spanish girl's fifteenth birthday. This Latin American tradition marks the transition of a young girl turning into a woman - similar to the tradition of the Bat Mitzvah, a Jewish tradition celebrating a young boy turning into a man.

A quince is somewhat similar to a sweet 16, though is sometimes more religious and involves somewhat ceremonial acts, or quinceanera traditions. The Quinceanera wears a fancy ball gown, and is usually led in by her escort and Court of Honor - a group of people that are typically her close friends or family. The boys of the Court are dressed in suits or tuxedos, and the girls in gowns or dresses - usually similar, if not matching. It is common for the group to perform a choreographed dance revolving around the Quinceanera.

The birthday girl and her father both participate in the Changing of the Shoes at most Quinceaneras, where the father (or a close male relative) ceremoniously changes her shoes from flats to high heels - symbolizing her transformation to a young lady. If there is a Church ceremony, the Quinceanera may use a special kneeling pillow. There is almost always a toast in honor of the birthday girl, using champagne glasses. Finally, The Last Doll is sometimes a part of the ceremony, or just as a keepsake for the quinceanera. The doll represents the last item from the Quinceanera's childhood.

Little Things offers a large variety of Quinceanera decorations for this large celebration, including tiaras, pillows, champagne flutes, guest books, scepters, cake toppers and much more. We also offer many sweet 15 favors as well.
