Quinceanera Invitations

Posted by:

One of the most important events for a young woman in the Hispanic community is having a quinceanera. Much like a sweet sixteen party, a quinceanera is celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday, through familial traditions and religious ceremonies. The quinceanera is a huge part in the girl’s transition into womanhood, and soon becomes one of the most remembered days in her life.

Planning a quinceanera may be a bit overwhelming, but we’re here to help you with your first step: the invitations. Take a look at some of our most popular quinceanera invitation designs and start planning for the event of a lifetime.

The colors are vibrant, which makes the fun font and white lettering pop off the page. Not to mention everyone loves a good fiesta!

For a more whimsical feel, the Marsala Zebra and Sage Ribbon invitation is absolutely perfect. The Pantone Marsala color provides a soft, warm feel and the fun, animal print border adds a splash of charm. But it’s the bordering within this invitation that pulls everything together to make it practical, but still has that pizzazz that you can expect a girl’s birthday party to have.


Mint and Coral Invitation

If you’re perusing invitations ideas for quinceaneras and decide that a more traditional route is best, then the Mint and Coral would be an excellent choice. This mint quinceanera invitation combines the sophistication of the font with the side lace design, which makes it a very elegant option. If the quinceanera you’re planning is going to have more religious undertones, then a refined choice like the Mint and Coral invitation might be just right.

Planning a quinceanera takes a lot of time and organization. Many people have compared the effort that it takes to that of planning a wedding. But although it may be a huge undertaking, the rewards in celebrating your daughter, or your niece’s entrance into womanhood is truly enchanting.

Besides just the few mentioned above, we have so many more quinceanera invitations to help you start planning this special day. Allow Polka Dot Design to aid in making this special day even more beautiful for you and your family.


{Party Idea} Popsicle Party

Posted by:


Some of my best memories of when my kids were little ones, was when we would sit on the back patio in their little play pool eating popsicles, literally, we would do this just about every day when they were little bitty.  I remember it like it just happened yesterday, the warm sun, all of us in our little bathing suits just taking in the summer time bliss that is like no other time of year, it felt like nothing in the world could be more fun that just sitting around eating a fruity sweetie treatie with the ones I loved the most.  Today my kids are so grown up, I can’t believe it, but the good news is, we still love popsicles.  My son gets so excited to make homemade ones, it makes me giggle with the anticipation he has over the whole process, he loves concocting strange little flavors and having a tasting ceremony after the freezing is complete to see which one blows our minds the most!   Have you noticed too, that there are gourmet popsicle stands popping up all over the place!  I am so excited about this trend so I just had to create this Popsicle Invitation with Sprinkles and Chevron for this tasty treat on a stick.


Here is one of Josh’s favorite recipes as well – it’s crazy!

(1)    Package of gummy bears
(1)    Bottle of orange soda
(1)    Bottle of strawberry/orange smoothie juice or regular juice
(4)    Ice Pop Molds


Add equal amounts of orange soda and smoothie juice into a pitcher, stir it well and then pour the mixture into the ice pop molds, add your desired about of gummy bears and freeze overnight or (8) hours.  You can make about (16) popsicles with these ingredients.


You can also find a recipe here on Lauren Conrad’s site.


Try them out and have your favorite crew come over to just “chill” out, and just soak up summer – I hope you do, and that you find it takes you to a place that only red tongues and grape stained lips can…summer smiles all around!

Let us know what your favorite popsicle flavors are – we are kind of obsessed!

{Party Idea} Wizard of Oz Party

Wizard of Oz Party Ideas @ Polka Dot Design

Wizard of Oz Party

This past week I have been inspired to “follow the yellow brick road” to our next party idea. I worked a fashion show with the Wizard of Oz theme. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! One of the scenes had all the models wearing red stiletto’s and it made me think, how fun it would be to have a “there’s no place like home” party. This Red Shoe Invitation by Sarah LeClere would set the scene for a night of marvel. You could even add glitter to it to make it sparkle! I love this idea of using red glittered shoes as a centerpiece and look at this idea for the Wizard of Oz Party. I want to gobble up those sparkly little cake balls and the wicked witches shoe decoration is simply a must! It will for sure make your guests feel, “somewhere over the rainbow” when you send them home with a rainbow lollipop
