Bouquet, or ramo, is artificial roses and other flowers made from blue and white acetate satin, and sprays of imitation pearls set on transparent monofilament. Flowers are set on a background of gathered pieces of white polyester satin and white nylon tulle. Bouquet was made to match quinceañera dress, 2002.91.1.


A quinceañera is the celebration of a young woman's fifteenth birthday in Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central, or South American culture. The quinceañera symbolizes a young woman's transition into womanhood, and the event usually combines a special Catholic mass given in the young woman's honor with a larger formal reception for family and friends. This type of event may also be called the Fiesta Rosa (for example, in El Salvador).
