30th Birthday Idea: Doble Quinceañera

May 9, 2012

How does a gal celebrate a monumental occasion like turning — gulp — 30? With a Doble Quiñceanera, of course!

Since saying goodbye to your 20’s can be a little bittersweet, a super special birthday party is a must. Enter: the Doble Quinceañera! Credit goes to my boyfriend for this genius idea. Take a Quiñceanera (just like 15-year-old girls from Latin America have) and times it by two. Hello 30th birthday fiesta!

And sure, today’s post it a bit silly, but hey, it’s my birthday so anything goes! : ) Here are a few pics from my awesome Doble Quiñceanera-themed party. Thanks to my amigos for making it so awesome!


Doble Quinceanera!

    Love your dress! It’s just so fun. Happy birthday!

  2. What a GREAT idea!! Looks like you guys had a muy divertido time- happy birthday!! Also, love your dress and glad I’m not the only one that shops at Delia’s as a non teeny bopper :)

    • Haha, busted! Delia’s definitely skews younger than my age group, but every once in awhile you can find a little gem, like this over-the-top sparkly dress!

    Just found your blog today and have been browsing backwards…I actually had a Double Sweet 16 on my 32nd birthday! I had a two tiaras that were fused together (think height)…two cakes and a signature drink and keg (gotta have something that wasn’t at your actual sweet 16….and of course I wore a hot pink dress! It was great.
