Quinceanera day is a magical day of the 15th birthday when the transition from childhood into young womanhood is taking place. Many families take care of organizing this fiest for their darling daughters with full dedication. On this day, a birthday girl must feel like a young princess, and everything in her home or other premises where the fiest will take place must point to this great event.
If you decide to organize this celebration for your girl, make it complete and up to the end. Should you want your girl to feel like a young queen, the holiday must be fully-fledged and include all the seemingly “not so important” details. Among those details, significant elements of the fiest can be. For example, the ceremony of initiation into a young woman is an integral part of every Quinceanera. This ceremony requires the participation of all the family and guests and certain attributes for its actual holding.
These attributes are a pair of pillows for Quinceanera: one Quinceanera pillow is for standing on it during the Catholic mess, and the second is a Quinceanera tiara pillow.
Why a kneeling pillow is necessary to have?
The Quinceanera event is rich with many various ceremonies: from a dance of the Quinceanera with her father to giving away the Quinceanera’s last doll. The very first ceremony of the celebration is the Catholic mess in the church. This ceremony is held to get blessings for the Quinceanera and to show her faith in God.
The girl gets to the church accompanied by her friends and family including her godparents. The readings pronounced during the mess are chosen by the Quinceanera and are spoken out by her too. The blessing confirms the Quinceanera’s commitment to God. Also, she makes the vows on her own, just as when she got baptized.
So, why and when during those ceremonies, Quinceanera kneeling pillows are needed? As you understand, a catholic mess is not about putting any tiaras on the head or new shoes on the feet. During the mess, the Quinceanera must pray and vow, and due to the importance of the day, the Quinceanera must stand on her knees. That’s why it’s reasonable to have a special kneeling pillow standing on which the girl won’t hurt her knees or feel any other pain or discomfort.
Other Quinceanera ceremony pillows
The smaller pillow is, logically, for the Quinceanera tiara - the crown that symbolizes the transition to womanhood. It’s placed on the pillow and then put on the Quinceanera’s head at the most appropriate moment. Usually, putting on the tiara takes place after the mess and at the opening of the Quinceanera party. Putting the tiara can be done by a Quinceanera’s closest friend or her younger sister or her mother or anyone she wants to do it for her.
Another item that might need to be placed on a pillow is a pair of shoes on heels. These shoes symbolize the transition to young womanhood and the moment the Quinceanera’s father puts her shoes on flat soles away and replaces them with shoes on heels is especially sacramental. That’s why, to make the procedure more aesthetically looking and emphasize the special sense of it, the shoes should also be placed on a pillow.
If Quinceanera is celebrated in your family, you should take care of making the celebration as perfect as possible. The holiday is full of traditions, and some of them require having the Quinceanera pillow set. For example, a kneeling pillow is needed for kneeling during the mess, and a tiara pillow is relevant for putting the tiara on the girl’s head. You can also buy the third pillow for the ceremony of changing shoes. At Quinceanera Decor, you can order those pillows embellished with Quinceanera’s name and birthdate, and decorated with various jewels, rhinestones, pearls, or diamonds. Also, our pillows can be of various colors such as Light Blue, Rose Gold, Green, Pink, Royal Blue, or Red.
