Princess for a Day  Back to Events

Marking one of the most special occasions in a young woman's life, a Sweet Sixteen or Quinceañera is not your average party. Commemorate your daughter's coming of age with a gala to remember.

A Sweet Sixteen party can be as casual as a dance party in your family room, as elegant as a traditional Quinceañera reception or as pampering as a day at the spa. The key is to choose a theme that fits the birthday girl's style and your budget.

A tradition-rich celebration with cultural and religious importance, La Quinceañera is typically honored on a Latina's 15th birthday.

To ensure that everyone has a blast, involve the birthday girl in the party planning. Whether the celebration involves a full meal or a selection of elegant sweets, your neighborhood Publix has everything you need.
