The day of a girl’s quiñceanera is a day that she has been looking forward to her whole childhood. Not only has she been waiting for this day, but her family has been looking forward to this day since the moment they found out they were having a little girl. This is not just a party but the day that a girl begins her transition to womanhood. With a very important day comes very intricate planning, which can include party favors. Here are some quiñceanera favors that’ll make your party even more special!
Top Quiñceanera Favors
1. Gumball Machines
Rent or purchase a few gumball machines (any size that you’d like) to place throughout your party’s venue. Guests will love the leisure of going up to the gumball machine for a burst of flavor right before they head back out to the dance floor. If you would like to have smaller gumball machines, you can use some as centerpieces. After the party, send each of your guests home with a customized mini gumball machine that goes with the theme of your quiñceanera. Place gumballs the color(s) of your theme inside the gumball machines.
2. Sweet Treats
This day is all about the birthday girl. Send the guests home with a cute bag filled with all the birthday girl’s favorite candy. Wrap up the birthday girl’s favorite candy bar or another sweet treat in a white sheer drawstring organza bag. To make the bag go with the theme of the quiñceanera, add colored marbles or thin shreds of colored pieces of paper.
Design your own stickers and have them printed with the date of the quiñceanera and the name of the birthday girl for your guests to take home. This is a great keepsake for your guests. They can stick it on school binders, their laptop cases, or in their room. Whenever they see it, they will be reminded of the fun night they had dancing away with friends.
4. Personalized Chocolate Covered Pretzels
This sweet and salty snack is something that can be done at home easily and without spending a lot of money. Making your own chocolate-covered pretzels is a great way for your birthday girl to feel like she has made a contribution to her party and can thank her guests for coming. Have the birthday girl decide if she wants pretzel rods, mini pretzel rods, or traditional pretzels. Many times, you can purchase different colored chocolate. Look for colored chocolate that goes along with the colors of your party. If you can’t find chocolate to go along with the colors of your party, you can purchase white candy melts and use food coloring to make the perfect shade.
Customize your own candle and give them out as party favors. Choose a color wax to go with the theme of your quiñceanera. Light some of these candles at the venue of your party. When your guests use them at home and smell the scent of their candles, they will think back to the night of your quiñceanera.
6. Mason Jar
It’s very hard to get mason jars wrong. They are timeless and make for the perfect party favors. Add the birthday girl’s favorite candy in all the mason jars. Try and find a candy that matches the colors in the theme of the party. To give the mason jar some flare, tie ribbons that are the same colors as the quiñceanera theme around the lid.
7. Quiñceanera Hand Sanitizer
If there is one thing that 15-year-old girls are sure to love, it’s scented hand sanitizer. Customize your own assorted hand sanitizers and hand them out as party favors. Guests can put them in their backpacks and use them at school. They will love being reminded of the fun night they had when they go to put some sanitizer on after class. This is also a great party favor because it promotes hygiene and staying healthy!
8. Personalized Cups
Get creative and artsy with your party favors by customizing your own cups to send guests home with. Go for a cup with some of the colors of your party or a clear cup and have the writing/design the color(s) of your party. To turn this party favor into something sweet, fill the cups up with individually packaged candy so that your guests can snack on it during the car ride home. If you want to keep up with the colors of your party, try and find a candy that is individually packaged such as StarBursts, Laffy Taffy, Pixy Stix, Tootsie Pops, or Kisses wrapped in colored aluminum.
9. Chocolate Bars
Chocolate is always a yes. Make it even sweeter by customizing the Hershey’s candy bar wrapper to make it a quiñceanera candy bar! You can get very creative with what you put on the back for “ingredients.” Try and really capture the personality of the birthday girl and put it into ingredients on the wrapper. This is not only yummy but the wrapper is a cute keepsake of the night.
10. Birthday Cake Soap
Continue the party when your guests take home some scented birthday cake soap. If you want to keep up with the self-care theme, add some birthday cake bath bombs. Your guests will need some relaxation after they dance the night away at your quiñceanera! You can also make a bundle using the customized hand sanitizer mentioned above. Place all of these into a white sheer drawstring organza bag and pass them out before everyone goes home.
11. Bedazzled Baseball Caps
There are two ways to go here. Either customize baseball caps that say the birthday girl’s name and the date of the quiñceanera or customized some bedazzled baseball caps with their initials on them for each of your guests. If you want to do the latter, it is important that you jump on your RSVP list early in the party planning process. You will need enough time to know who is coming to the party to put an order in on time for their baseball caps with their bedazzled initials.
Feel free to include as many of these quiñceanera favors as you’d like into your party! Whether you take these party favors as written or choose to customize them to fit the lady of the night, they’re bound to spice up the night and help create small but valuable memories of the night for you and your guests.
