Check prom supply catalogues - they often have themed party kits from which you can get ideas. Also, think about making giant versions of your masquerade masks to hang on the walls ( I assume you're using the ones in the photo?)
The most important decoration to keep in mind for a Quinceanera celebration is Christ. You could place an enlarged replication of your choice of Christ paintings on a main wall and/or small replications on all the tables within the table decorations. You might also consider giving out small crosses to all who attend.
Decorate the chairs with tied on ribbons alternating the colors you want from chair to chair. And have a centerpiece on all tables with all of the colors you want. Of course crepe paper streamers in your color choices will add to the festivity too :-)
Congratulations on your passage!
Where can I get quinceanera invitations that have Cinderella and masks? It's a Cinderella masquerade ball theme.

Have you considered making your own invitations? This site has Cinderella clipart images that you could use:
My daughter's Quinceanera theme is dragonflies. I have figured out how to make the body and wings, but cannot figure out how to combine them without looking "dirty". Any suggestions?

I'm trying to have a "Phantom of the Opera" themed quince, and I have so many questions. What colors should I do? What about music and food? I also need ideas for centerpieces. I would like any cake ideas too. I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

I actually turned 17 and I had my Phantom of the opera themed Quinceanera 2 yes ago, and I can say it went pretty outstanding. The colors I used were simple the already dramatic colors of red and gold! I refused to see anything white. My dress in addition was blood red. My centerpieces consisted of a gold on gold vase with antiquate details and angels with red roses, and red roses only, the flower petals consisted with white sort of thorns and i took it to myself to make sure that every piece of white was gone! So everything was red and gold.
My cake was ivory, a black ribbon at at the bottom of each cake, (cause they were separated), and at the top of each little cake were red roses. It was beautiful! For my waltz I did a medley of all the phantom songs for my entrance and the main overture for my main waltz!
Only the male dancers were wearing masks my extra dancers with my female companions (who were wearing red and gold tutus with a red ribbon in their hair ('Meg Giry', lol), well anyways the male dancers were wearing normal masquerade red masks, while my main dance (only one), was wearing the phantom Mask.
Also the thank you grams for all my guests. I had a copy of the 2004 movie, for each family and a red rose with a silk black ribbon to accompany it.
I hope this helped.
Overall you will have so much fun! Especially if you love phantom ad much as I do. ;)
My birthday is in May and I don't know what to do. Usually people have a party but I don't like the whole center of attention thing. Plus, I don't have that many close friends so it would mostly be family and people I hardly talk to (awks). But I do want the dress. I thought about a cruise or something because I have never gone on one, but it might be hard considering my family consists of 6 people. I want it to be something I won't forget, not like just going to the movies. BTW I'm latina so it would be like my sweet sixteen (big deal). So any ideas or suggestions would help a lot. Thanks!
