Are you looking for a way to honor your daughter's heritage while celebrating her 15th birthday in style? A quinceañera is a fun and traditional way to celebrate your daughter’s rite of passage from girl to woman. To plan a successful party, you need to consider all of the details from start to finish. Luckily, we have had the honor of hosting quite a few quinceañera celebrations here at The Bowden, and we have some ideas to help you plan an event your family will remember and cherish for a lifetime. 

Planning a fundraising event is a monumental task. Every fundraising event planner has the primary goal of making the most significant impact possible within your means. Although virtual and online events can be effective, a local in-person fundraising event where people can gather together consistently provides the greatest impact when hosted at a strategically chosen venue. 

Losing a loved one is a difficult part of life. Once they pass, you are often preoccupied with planning the services and left without time to celebrate the life that they lived. A common practice is to host a celebration of Life or memorial service after the funeral to allow loved ones to reminisce and share their favorite memories, an essential part of the grieving process.

Hosting your memorial event can be stressful. We would like to make your planning slightly easier by answering questions you may have about these events. While funerals are often a somber event focused on the loss, a celebration of life or memorial service is an opportunity to focus on the wonderful memories that everyone is left with.
