Quinceanera (“fifteen years” in
English) is the coming of age ceremony held in honor of a young lady’s fifteenth
After the Roman Catholic religious
ceremony is concluded, a reception is either held in the Quinceanera’s home or
at a banquet hall.
Thereafter, the father of the
Quinceanera dances with her followed by her godfather. The Quinceanera’s court

the evening). The chambelan usually has the first dance with the Quinceanera,
which is a traditional ballroom waltz.

Each is packaged upright in a clear plastic box with an elegant silver and white floral stage base. Also, each is finished with a white organza ribbon and attached matching floral design.

events. It is very versatile and comes in a variety of colors. You can attach
tulle around a cake table, banquet table, or party table. It will add softness
