Today, on my 'feature week' I want to share with you a few Quince Celebrations, also known as Sweet 15, Quinceañera/o and Mis Quince!
In our Hispanic culture, a girl is celebrated by family and friends in a big gathering as she turns 15. She is given a tiara and a scepter and her flat girly shoes are exchanged for heels.
The tiara signifies that you are a princess in the eyes of God and the world and the scepter signifies the responsibility being given to you as you become a young woman. The shoes are exchanged by your parents as they welcome your womanhood. In some cases, a last doll is also given and in religious celebrations, often a cross.
Today, I want to share with you pictures of my friends daughters and my own as they celebrated their 15th birthday with a Quinceañero Celebration.
My friend Mariela's daughter, Valeria had a pink and zebra stylish celebration. Love her pink dress and stunning cake!
Love the theme on Arianna's Celebration, my friend Norma's daughter. Don't you just want a piece of that cake?!! And her blue dress is so beautiful, what a party!
The above are from my own daughter's Tiana's Quinceañero. One of the best days!! You can see the entire post here. And there's even a Quince Diary of our planning days. Photography by DPerspective Photography in South Florida.
Thanks to my wonderful friends for allowing me to share their family pictures!
