When your daughter reach 18 years of age, it becomes one of their major milestones in life. This signifies their step into the world of adulthood, the coming of age as they say "When your baby is now a Lady". Let us help you plan your daughter's milestone with our very affordable debut packages.
Whether you’re throwing a simple birthday party, or simply celebrating life, we approach each event as a blank palette by putting great care and attention into coming up with the perfect mix of all the details – the invitations, the cocktails, the music, the flowers and the menu.
One of the most prominent parts of a girl’s debut is the cotillion, which often involves 9 pairs of dancers performing either a formal waltz or dance number. This part of the program can take place either at the beginning or at the end of the event. The members of the “cotillion court” must choreograph and practice a dance months prior the event. Following the dance, members of the cotillion court may then serve as the debutante’s escorts, thus representing those who will help guide the debutante in her life journey.
THE 18 ROSES
For a lot of girls, the 18 roses is a highlight of the debut program. It represents a girl’s readiness in the area of romance, as was the original purpose of the debut. The first rose is usually given by the debutante’s father to symbolize something that is both beautiful and “thorny”. He is then followed by the other male members of the family, as the protectors of the girl. The remaining men in the 18 Roses lineup are friends of the debutante, and the person selected as either the second-to-the-last rose or the last rose is the girl’s special someone.
THE 18 CANDLES
After the 18 Roses, the 18 Candles program transitions from the romance aspect to the girl as an independent member of society. It involves the women who are important to the debutante—as advisors, teachers, and trusted peers. These women give speeches and advice, and state their well-wishes for the debutante. They then each light a candle that symbolizes light—light that will guide the girl on her life journey.
THE 18 TREASURE
As the debutante celebrates the beginning of womanhood, she will need tools that either help her in the future, encourage her in the present, or give her something fond to look back on. In the 18 Treasures program, friends and family members are tasked to give the debutante special gifts or “tokens”, and explain how they will become inspirations for her.
