Cinderella Quinceanera Theme

Picking a specific theme for your quinceanera will make your special day even more festive and memorable. You are already the princess of the party, so why not have a Cinderella quinceanera theme? This will take your quinceanera one step further from plain old “princess theme” and make it a truly spectacular day.

Decoration Ideas:
Decorations are integral in setting the stage and atmosphere of any quinceanera. The entranceway will be your guests first exposure to your Cinderella ball. Decorate the entrance to replicate walking through a castle archway. A carriage is vital for making any Cinderella quinceanera theme complete. Use dimmed blue lighting to help create the atmosphere. Include balloons, sparkles and lights in frosty blues, silvers and whites. If it is within your budget, add little Cinderella themed items at each table. For example, fairy tale themed place card holders or princess themed candles. Maybe try these glass slipper party favor for each guest.

The Dress:

To stick with a classic Cinderella looking gown, go for a powder blue ball gown style dress. A gathered ball gown style is fit for any princess, however, depending on your personality and style preferences, you can experiment with different ball gown styles. A tulle gown is always an elegant choice paired with lace or beadwork.

Select an invitation that alludes to your theme. This could be invitations in the shape of Cinderella’s glass slipper or the golden carriage. Many quince invitations now also include a place to put a photo of the princess herself.

The cake will be one of the focal points at the reception and should therefore be something particularly special. Consider a castle shaped cake, covered with fairy dust sparkles. If you prefer a plainer, squared tiered cake, you can also simply add a Cinderella themed topper to make it complete. Keep your cake matching with the overall color scheme of your decorations. A simple but quaint finger food appetizer, are sandwiches cut into star shapes with cookie cutters. Recreate Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage by carving out a pumpkin and adding toy horses to the front. Fill the pumpkin with dip and it doubles as a dipping tray for veggies.

You don’t want to overdo it, but select a couple of your favorite songs from the Disney film to play at your quinceanera.
