In the Latin American culture, 'quinceanera' is a ceremony which is held on a girl's fifteenth birthday in order to celebrate her coming of age. The word translates to 'fifteen years' in English. It refers to the girl "becoming a lady" or "being ready for motherhood".
Such an occasion involves a mass in the honor of the girl and a ball style preparation. It is generally celebrated with a grand party which may be as elaborate as a wedding. On the special day, the girl is made to look as well as treated like a princess. She generally wears a gorgeous gown, high heel and tiara. The high heel is fitted on her feet by her father and the tiara is placed on her head by her mother. The quinceanera may even perform a waltz with her court which is made up of 15 people.
Quinceanera parties generally follow a theme, based on which the decorations and the party favors are chosen. Some of the popular themes are a princess theme, Hawaiian theme or a simple black and white party theme. It can also be a mascarade ball, a garden or a butterfly theme, and many more.
