As the days go by and fall moves forward, the  autumn colors like brown, red or orange hues are the prelude to the winter colors.

That’s why this time we decided to choose a color scheme for your Quinceanera that is not as bright as others but at the same time, it is very elegant and perfect for this season.

How do you feel about a combination of orange and gray? At first, you’re thinking it’s not the typical color palette chosen by Quinceañeras but if you decide to choose it, you won’t regret it.

Gray is a very elegant color and the touches of orange add so much life by putting everything together. Orange is one of those colors that work well for any season depending on what you combine it with.

You can choose between two strong and bright shades or two lighter shades.

This color scheme gives the opportunity to make your party very formal or more casual and depending on what you decide and the choices you make it’s how your party will turn out.

If you decide to have a formal party we suggest to choose a traditional white dress and accent it with gray and orange, for example, a satin ribbon in gray with embroidered orange flowers.

For the chambelanes outfits, a gray suit with white shirt and tie in orange will work the magic and they will look very handsome. Your damas can wear either a gray short or long dress and complete their outfits with orange shoes and an orange bouquet.

A very original idea is that each dama carries a bouquet in the same color but made with different flowers.

On the other hand, if you decide to make your party more casual, we suggest a dress in an orange shade to your liking either light or a bright color. For the chambelanes, gray pants, white shirt, orange suspenders, and tie.

They can even wear gray or orange Converse. For the damas short dresses in a different color from yours, it could be gray with a little shine on it.

Speaking of decor, the idea is not to overload the ambiance with too much color, so it’s better to use only touches of color here and there.

A good example of how to use color in your decor is to set the tables with white linens and alternate gray and orange napkins.

The  centerpieces made with orange and white flowers and some tea candles. Your tables will look spectacular.

There are many decorations you can do it yourself and save some money to spend on other things like music or the photographer.

Some ideas are painting mason jars in matte orange and matte gray and use them as vases or fill them with candy as favors for your guests.

You can also buy natural pumpkins and put fresh flowers or find a nice in any craft supply store so your guests place their messages inside.

You can also do your invitations. Getting involved in everything related to your party will make the excitement grow as the days pass!

A tier-layer white cake decorated with gray ribbon and orange flowers won’t disappoint your guests. It will be delicious and it will look beautiful on your main table.
