Selena Quintanilla 

If you’re Latina then chances are that you know who this iconic mega superstar is. Selena Quintanilla paved the way for the rise in Latin music across the United States.  Pay tribute to the queen of Tex-Mex by featuring her in your surprise dance.  Check out how this quince girl showed off her dance moves to Como La Flor, Baila Esta Cumbia, and Mi Gente.

Frida Khalo

Frida Khalo broke a lot of barriers as an artist. Her work is important because she expands Mexico’s history in her art. Honor her by hanging papel picado banners and various recreations of Frida’s self-portraits throughout your venue. This can be a Mexican- Frida fusion theme.


Maria Felix 

The glamorous Maria Felix was a famous Mexican actress and singer in the ’40s and 50s. Felix’s beauty, charisma, and charm became the inspirations for other artists, writers, filmmakers, and musicians. Roll out the red carpet at your quince and channel your inner diva with an old Hollywood-themed quince.

Amalia Hernández
