7 Quinceañera Party Planning Tips
2017 is fast approaching, and that means a new year filled with gatherings, celebrations, and plenty of fun. And for many, the new year will also include some long-awaited quinceañeras.
If your daughter’s set to celebrate her quinceañera in 2017, you’re in for some truly magical moments. But you won’t get those lifelong memories if you wait until the last minute to plan the party. Thankfully, the team at Signature Banquet Hall is here to help. We’ve made Signature one of Los Angeles’ best event venues, specializing in everything from weddings to quinceañeras, and have hosted countless successful events. That’s why we’re running through some important quinceañera party planning tips to get you perfectly prepared for your little girl’s big day.
1) Choose A Theme Early
The first step in planning a quinceañera is choosing a theme. Get started early by deciding what kind of party your daughter wants to have, and getting a basic idea of the decor you’ll need. That way, when you start looking at event venues you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for.
2) Decide A Budget And Stick To It
It’s easy to overspend on a quinceañera, especially when you want to bring your daughter’s dream party to life. And that’s why it’s important to set a budget early on and stick to it throughout your party planning process. Setting a budget early on will help eliminate overly expensive or unnecessary spending, making your planning go much smoother.
3) Don’t Start Planning Alone
Planning a quinceañera is a massive undertaking, which is why you shouldn’t plan the party alone. To make sure your daughter’s celebration is a hit, consider hiring a professional party planner to ensure every last detail of the big day is covered. And if your budget won’t allow a professional’s help, you can always enlist a few friends or family members to help you plan.
4) Research Your Event Venue Options
Regardless of your location, you’re bound to find a wide variety of event venues ready to host your quinceañera. But remember, not all event venues are equal. Be sure to do the research and actually talk to multiple venue managers regarding their location’s services before making your decision. It can be tough to get the complete picture of an event venue through online research alone, and taking the extra steps to research your options will help you pick the best venue for your party.
5) Use Seasonal Floral Decorations
Floral centerpieces are a staple at many quinceañeras. While the theme you selected will certainly help determine which flowers you should use as decorations, it’s always a good idea to use seasonal options. Taking advantage of flowers that are abundant and easily available will also help you save some money.
6) Consider Accommodations For Your Guests
You’ll want to invite plenty of family to your daughter’s quinceañera. But inviting older relatives like grandparents means you’ll need to make some extra accommodations. Be sure to show the elders in your family some respect during the party by ensuring there are plenty of places for them to sit and relax.
And if you’re going to have a lot of young guests — think kids 10 years old and younger — you might want to consider hiring a babysitter to watch them at the party so their parents can actually enjoy themselves.
7) Don’t Forget The Thank You Notes
After the party, it’s important to thank all of the friends, loved ones, and other guests who attended. That’s why a nice handwritten thank you note from daughter is a great cap to the quinceañera experience. Your guests will truly appreciate a kind, heartfelt note.
