My daughter and her best friend were asked to be part of Ariana's Quinceanera right before the first practice. We arrived to practice on first day to what looked like a BBQ/house party, there were 30+ kids walking around eating hot dogs and posole, and what seemed like 30+ adults hanging out inside and outside.
Once we came inside the house we saw the command center. There at the large square dining table sat the Mother of the Quinceanera and several family members and padrinos, It was a work station, here they had several glue guns, eye masks, feathers, beads, ribbons, and decorative gemstones. We were making party favors.
