A Gorgeous Mexican Quinceanera Dress

Think reds, purples, yellows and oranges. Blend contrasting colors, consider mixing flower patterns and use the typical Mexican traditional dress as inspiration to have your Quinceanera dress tailored made.

Frida loved layers; a long silk skirt paired up with a contrasting top would be fabulous! Use a pashmina to cover up if you’re having a Quince mass.

Well, of course! Flowers are the key ingredient for a Frida Khalo Quinceanera, but do threat your eyebrows before the party!

Beyonce took it a bit too far…

Keep it demure, a little bit of eye shadow, blush, light plum lips and voila!

Frida Kahlo Quinceanera Decor

Hang paper mache/ paper picado banners and various recreations of Frida’s self-portraits (Take 10 selfies!) throughout your venue.

Place sarapes as table cloths and use clear vases with flowers as Quinceanera centerpieces

Give your guests a photo props, consider uni-brows for the guys and paper-made flower headbands for the girls.

Put Mexican candies and some Frida cupcakes as munchies and don’t forget to create a colorful backdrop for guests to take pictures with you.

Delicious Mexican Quince Menu

Aguas frescas, tamales and tacos are a must! A huge advantage of selecting such a theme is having an easy-peasy Quinceanera menu.

Just because we’re going all out with colors does not mean we need an all-flavors cake. Keep it classy with a two-tier vanilla cake and add flowers, these can be edible or natural, your choice!

No need for a chocolate fountain! Conchas, pan dulce, cajeta, churritos, apples with chile and tamarindos are perfect for your Quinceanera Dessert Table.
