There are many details to consider when searching through Quinceañera themes. From the delectable cake your guests will feast on, to the chariot in which you will arrive and the dress in which you will grace the dance floor, all these elements will be vital in adding opulence to your grand ball.
A fairy tale wonderland is one Quinceañera theme that never seems to go out of style. And that’s greatly due to the touches of fantasy that it can give to most every single detail of your Quince celebration.
CHARMING INSIDE AND OUT
Take this cake for example. The Sweet & Saucy Shop combines two important elements—savory and stunning—in this golden cake creation. The miniature cake with royal detailing can be conveniently served as part of a pastry buffet, a centerpiece or enlarged to feed your entire guest list as your Quinceañera cake.

HEAD OVER FLORALS
Ragazza Fashion is on point with this floral print Quince dress that follows one of the most popular trends of the year—and that suits your fairytale Quinceañera theme perfectly. Although floral prints were a Spring showcase in most fashion runway shows, its feminine and fun attributes make it perfect for Quince girls of all seasons.

Although acrylics and French-tip manis are a go-to for these type of grand events, a fun, vibrant base color is really all you need to show your fashionista spirit. Rather than polishing your nails yourself, visit a salon for a full beauty regimen that will leave your nails looking revitalized.

SMELL LIKE ALL THE RIGHT NOTES
And of course, you’ll not only want to look amazing but smell like it too. For this choose a perfume that’s clean and crisp but not too clingy. This year, mega mogul Jennifer Lopez celebrated ten years of perfume making with the release of “Glowing”, which is a continuation of her 2002 Glow launch. The top notes are bergamot, mandarin and cypress. Lovely!
Perfume Jennifer Lopez Glowing by JLo, Kohl’s $39-$65.

PRE PARTY PAMPERING
Days before your party, you’ll want to prepare your canvas for the big day. By this I mean your face. For this, stimulate dull, lifeless skin with a great exfoliator. This will leave your skin looking radiant and picturesque worthy of golden frames.

FROM POINT A TO POINT B
As far as your Quinceañera travel is concerned, horse drawn carriages such as those available from Enchanted Carriages are the ultimate way to arrive to your grand ball. Fit for a Princess and selected few, it’s the way most fairy-tale starlets begin their night to remember.

THE ULTIMATE ACCESSORY
Just for fun I’ll have you know that French footwear designer Christian Louboutin designed a Cinderella inspired heel for the fall 2012 release of the Disney classic’s Diamond Edition. The slippers are so exclusive that only 20 pairs were made, all of which will be given away through a series of contests. A girl can dream!
