When Zoe Lara turned 15, she and her parents threw a traditional quinceañera with a modern, lively French cabaret theme. Their 215 guests enjoyed plenty of live entertainment, delicious food from Massimos Restaurant and of course, the traditional quinceañera father-daughter dance. Zoe and her father took dance lessons together and then choreographed their own waltz just for this special occasion. Guests enjoyed a decadent five course menu including lamb chops, homemade pizza, penne alla vodka, filet with mushroom sauce and risotto. Dessert consisted of gelato, a coffee bar, and a beautiful display of red velvet and vanilla cupcakes. After the formal part of the evening, the teenagers took over the dance floor while the DJ from Bay Area Production played a combination of Latin music and popular hits.

After falling in love with the French cabaret theme at another event, Zoe knew it was the perfect theme for her own special day. The red color scheme, vintage details, and exciting entertainment were all inspired by the iconic French theme.
