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?
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 Twitter, TikTok or Facebook may be tagged by putting "#" before important words, as in:
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?
