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!

Bandita!

Doble Quinceanera!

    • 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!
