Five essential articles for your charro style quinceañera

If you have Mexican roots and feel proud of it, then mariachi music and papel picado can inspire you to create a charro-style theme for your Quinceañera. Here are five elements that will help you achieve your goal.

1. Embroidered charro dress

One of the iconic looks of Mexican charros is the gold or silver embroidery on their suits and dresses. This Quinceañera dress evokes the spirit of the traditional charro with its embroidered flower design. Add a more striking touch with roses and a shawl tied around your waist, just like this girl did with her charming charro outfit.

Dress: You can find it at Quinces Queens

15004 Paramount Blvd., Paramount, California.

2. Mariachi serenade

Once you hear the first chords of the guitar playing your favorite mariachi song, you'll know that a magical atmosphere will surround your Quince party. If you need help choosing mariachis in your area, visit the "Fiestas" section on ElClasificado.com to find a mariachi group near you.

Decorate your charro-themed Quinceañera party with papel picado. You can hang these colorful paper designs around string lights if your party is outdoors, or if it's indoors in a hall, then place them on the ceiling.

4. Mexican fiesta-inspired cake

This simple yet striking cake uses royal icing as a background so that the fiesta-inspired designs can be front and center. Add fresh flowers in the color of your Quinceañera dress, just as they did with this cake.

5. Bright floral arrangements

The flowers at your party can be as bright as the colors of Mexican haciendas. Mix fuchsia orchids, bright purple hydrangeas, yellow and pink roses—any type of flowers that catch your eye! Add glasses, embroidered table runners, and other elements in matching colors, just like this table for a wedding inspired by Yucatecan culture.
