Quinceañero Court of Honor - Will you be my maid?

Did you hear the news? We're celebrating a Quinceañero soon and today I'm sharing with you what we created to ask the girls that will be taking part in the Court of Honor better known as Damas. 

Lovely ideas you can use to ask your bridesmaids on a Wedding too.  Keep up with all our Quinceañero planning on instagram too: #melaniesprincesstale or follow us as @inflightideas!


mason jar tags from Sweetly Scrapped Art on Etsy


Above are clear glass rustic boxes we found at Hobby Lobby and were given to two of the girls who are Damas de Honor (kind of like maid of honors).  All boxes were filled with pink favorites and included information as seen above for when it is, what to expect and a color palette. Also they all had a pinata cookie from KJ Cookies with a little surprise inside!



These really cute design cards that I printed as tags are a free printable design for place cards from Wedding Chicks

Rustic Modern Pink Quinceañero Inspiration

I'm super excited to be planning my second daughter's 15th birthday as we say in my puertorican culture, Quinceañero.  Melanie's birthday is in the winter months and we're looking forward to celebrating next Summer with family and friends in Tennessee.

This inspiration of course is perfect for any Quinceañera, Sweet 16 or Bride!  Looking forward to mixing in rustic wood and country looks with glittery, shiny and modern accents.  I think is sugar and spice and everything nice!

Banners like this one by Vanessa Grant Events displayed names of Laura's favorite 60s songs.



The sign in - welcome table

Lava lamps, old photos, sixties cookies and records for our sign in table.

I LOVE how the desserts look on these clear raisers from The Container Store.  The Labels had also names of songs under the food description.
