A Shabby Chic Quinceañera

If you’re having your party outdoors, a shabby chic quinceañera is ideal!

The shabby chic style is both vintage and sweet, perfect for a valentine’s themed quinceanera!


Fashion designer, Rachel Ashwell, first introduced the term back in the decade of the ’80s.  The look refers to carefully choosing new and used pieces of furniture to work on and achieve an antique look for stylish decoration purposes.

A shabby chic themed party usually has the following colors in its repertoire: pastel pink, baby blue and mint green.

The colors are currently in trend, so it’ll be easier to find the perfect pieces to decorate your fiesta. What’s perfect about this theme is that it fits all types of budgets.

Tastefully decorate your dining room for an intimate shabby chic quinceañera or rent a barnyard and have a shabby chic cottage style celebration.

Lace tablecloths and patterned table runners will instantly set the mood. Edibles like cupcakes, macaroons and cake pops can adorn your table as either center pieces or party favors. Marshmallows are not expensive and can also serve as both decorative items and appetizers.

Welcome your guests with DIY banners and use different colored balloons to assign their seats. Place a blackboard at the entrance with pastel chalks and have them write congratulatory messages.

Pink roses are a must for a shabby chic quinceañera! Small baskets, heart-shaped garlands, mason jars centerpieces and candles are key elements of the  shabby chic theme.

Go to your nearest Goodwill store or drive around looking for yard sales and purchase an antique tea set. An old coffee table would be wonderful!

Tea parties are commonly associated with the shabby chic style so including these might be the cherry on top of your whole décor.
