There’s a feeling of accomplishment when you plan for a “Do It Yourself” quinceañera.
From party favors, invitations and catering, the DIY quinceañera is a budget friendly way to add loads of personalization to your very special day. If you’re the type of quinceañera who likes to do it all and not spend too much cash, a DIY quince is just the way to go.
The first glance at what your quince celebration will entail is presented by your quinceañera invitation. And as much pressure as that may be on a perfectionist quinceañera, the opportunity to show your creativity with your invitations will surely be worth the pressure. For DIY invitations that reflect your very own personality, search online for templates that are cohesive with your personality and your quince theme. Once you have chosen a template of your liking, visit your local crafts store to purchase all of the necessary materials. Once you’ve gathered your materials, gather your girlfriends, order some pizza and make a fun-night out of making invitations! After you’ve created one sample invitation, delegate tasks to each member of your group and before you know it, you’ll have your invitations completed and, as a bonus, you will have spent some quality time with your friends.
Your venue décor doesn’t have to be either extremely expensive or a headache on its own. For your centerpieces, choose an arrangement or display and make one sample for your handy-helpers. After you purchase the materials needed for all of your centerpieces, organize another fun-night to complete the centerpieces. Since nowadays most venues include tableware and linens, you may not have to go out of your way to purchase them yourself. But if you’d rather opt for providing linens yourself and want to save yourself some dough, you can search online for wholesale linen and tableware retailers that offer splendid savings when purchasing in bulk.
Home cooking has a way of hitting the heart and soul the way that no other type of cooking can. Whether it’s a meal your mother cooked for you as a child or your own signature meal, you can’t go wrong with serving your guests a meal that is warm and plentiful. Talk to your parents, your aunts and the rest of the fabulous cooks in your family and see if they can arrange for a potluck type of meal. Have one person take care of the main dish while the others take care of the side dishes and desserts. With the catering aspect of your quince being taken care of by your family’s very own top chefs, your guests are guaranteed to leave your party on a full and happy stomach.
