Quinceañera Invites and Hashtags

Invitation Warehouse Contributor/Blogger

In our last post, we told you about the official, formal celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday – the Quinceañera; when a young Latina makes the ‘transition from childhood to young womanhood1.’

And because we understand at that age, girls usually are into guys, fashion, and all things social media, why not use your Quinceañera invitations to make it a social extravaganza? 

Here’s how:

1.   Before you purchase your quince años invites from Invitation Warehouse®, think of a hashtag for the event.  But wait.  I’m taking for granted that you actually know what a hashtag is; so please allow me to give you a technical definition.  According to Wikipedia, a hashtag2 is 'a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #. It is a form of metadata tag. Short messages on microblogging social networking services such as TwitterFlickr, Google+ or Facebook may be tagged by putting "#" before important words, as in:

#Wikipedia is an #encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

       Hashtags provide a means of grouping such messages, since one can search for the 

       hashtag and get the set of messages that contain it.” 

That way, when all of her friends get their formal invites, which she probably won’t want you to purchase mom; but seeing as you’re old school, we know you probably will; she can have a new spin on her social stationery – a hashtag at the bottom of a traditional, thermo-graphed quince años invitation.

2.  When your order your invites from Invitation Warehouse®, look for the section entitled ‘wording’ and be sure to enter that hashtag. That way the invitees can RSVP via Twitter® and with the response cards you order from us. Remember, keep the hashtag simple!  Something like #PrincessPerez, #PrettyPrincess15, #PrincessPerezParty. 

Once you order the full color napkins (click here to see our last post) and incorporate this hashtag idea, you’re sure to please your baby girl and keep your older family members, who are used to the traditional invites, pleased in the process.  

Aaw isn’t that so sweet!??!  Now your baby girl will be transitioning and trending all at the same time.  And remember when you purchase 50 or more invitations, you’ll receive 25% off on napkins. Ready to order your Quince Años invites?  Visit today!

Quinceañera Invites and Napkins

Invitation Warehouse Contributor/Blogger

Quinceañera! Aaaw, isn’t that a beautiful word? But what does it mean?  According to Wikipedia, it’s ‘one who is fifteen.’ It’s an official, formal celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday when she makes the ‘transition from childhood to young womanhood1’. And at Invitation Warehouse, we are thrilled to offer an entire album for this special occasion.

Ordinarily parents go out to rent ballrooms, gowns, and some will even splurge on the invites which is great because this can be used as an opportunity to instill social etiquette.  How so?  By taking the time to visit our invitation boutique this gives your princess an opportunity to select her own social stationery.

She’ll have the opportunity to select her reception card, response card and envelopes, as well as any note or thank you cards.  Oh, and lets not forget the napkins!  Did you know we carry full color napkins? Yep and here’s a great idea.  When you purchase 50 or more invitations, you’ll receive 25% off on napkins!  I know that may not seem like a big deal but think about it.

Instead of purchasing party favors, why not take advantage of the 25% discount on the full color napkins and even step your game up and upload a full colored picture of your princess!  That way, everyone takes home a napkin/souvenir/party favor of the big event!

A girl’s 15th birthday only happens once in a lifetime and at Invitation Warehouse, we want to partner with you to make that day as memorable as possible.  Check out our Quince Anos selection and be sure to take a look our huge inventory of napkins.  Visit today!
