Sweet Sixteen Parties and Quinces
Everyone sheds a tear or two at weddings, but there is something very heartwarming and rare when witnessing the coming of age of a young adult, as well as the great pride his or her family exudes when they are commemorating how far their child has come and all they have accomplished.
Sweet Sixteen parties celebrate the evolution of a young girl becoming a woman. Popular in North America, Sweet Sixteens are very similar to the traditional American Debutante Ball as well as the Quinceanera, or Quince, which is popular among many Latin cultures. Sweet Sixteen parties range anywhere from casual and fun to elaborate and formal. The Sweet Sixteen is also a trend that is catching on with boys now as well.The Quinceanera, or Quince, is a traditional celebration of a young girl’s journey from childhood into adulthood at age 15. Latin families mark the occasion with ceremonies that embrace religious traditions, the value of family, and social responsibility. These celebrations honor God, family, and friends with music, food and dance.The Quinceanera is a cherished and honored tradition. What better venue to serve this memorable milestone than a luxury yacht charter? Charter One’s event coordinators have immense skill and experience in creating these events that provide memories for families that last forever. When considering the venue for your Sweet Sixteen or Quinceanera, not only do you choose the sophisticated ship it will take place aboard, but you can also chart your own scenic course. Our luxury ships set sail from several dock locations in Palm Beach, Broward, or Miami-Dade counties. A Quince celebration might include departure from a port in Miami Beach or Coconut Grove to infuse even more spicy Latin flair.These types of celebrations often incorporate elaborate themes, adding excitement and magic to the event. The latest trends are big and bold, often taking one simple idea and transforming it into an epic concept. Here are some themes Charter One Yachts has had great success with:
  • Brazilian Carnivale – This theme includes an abundance of color, vivacious rhythms and drumbeats of a Caribbean celebration. Costumes are very ornate (think peacock feathered headdresses!) and the food combines an array of colors, cuisine items and spices.
  • Peaches and Cream – This theme utilizes a color palette that provides the perfect balance of sweet and sophistication. What makes this theme so lovely is that the décor can remain minimal while emphasizing the elegance of the stunning yacht venue.
  • Masquerade – This is by far a favorite of the Quince girl, including masks, feathers, and mystery! Masquerade parties can range from fun and lighthearted, to formal and sophisticated.
At Charter One, any theme can be integrated into your extraordinary event. The event coordinator will also work with you to incorporate the essential traditions that are fundamental to these celebrations, such as the Candle Lighting ceremony during the Sweet Sixteen party, or other traditions such as the Shoe ceremony, the Tiara ceremony, and the Father and Daughter dance. Your celebration can be as traditional or unique as you envision it to be.Contact Charter One now to start planning your unforgettable coming of age festivity aboard one of our luxury yacht charters!
