Real Talk - Planning a Quinceanera with a blended family
Planning a Quinceanera with a blended family is more common than you think. How to navigate the planning process when parents are divorced and or remarried? Having two different sets of ideas can cause havoc to the fun part of planning your Quinceanera. A neutral person to serve as a mediator like an event planner is very helpful to a family with two sets of parents that can’t agree on anything about the event. We must remember first and foremost your goal is to have the best possible event for the honoree the ‘Quinceanera’ .
3 top issues blended families encounter and how to solve them.
1. Who pays for what?
2. Who is in charge of what?
3. The traditions, who does what?
As soon as you know you want to have a Quince you need to talk about the financial side of the planning. It can be a balancing act to keep everyone on the same page on how much to spend on.
1st thing to do is to sit down on your own or with a professional who can be the mediator and give you an actual plan of action you can all agree on.

As summer comes to a close and everyone returns to school. We are heading into the Fall season and Quinceaneras continue to be planned all over Southern California. I have been asked by several clients and or colleges regarding fall trends. Darker colors and or jeweled colors are very popular in the fall season. Yet I tell my clients not to limit themselves to have to stick to darker or warmer themes just because its fall/winter. But if you must. Awesome combos: Deep purples and gold with hints of orange make for a beautiful event. Deep reds and Aquas are also colors that you might not think will work but pairing them together allows the Quinceanera who wants to use a Spring color like Aqua. A dark brown with rose pinks and light golds is perfect for a Quinceanera too. Don’t forget to add hints of ivory and whites to most of your themes or color selections. I see some events too dark and almost depressing for a Quinceanera. A Quince girl should be a delicate and sweet look no matter what direction you take your decor/theme.
