Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican victory at the 1862 Battle of Puebla. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, so we’re going to pay tribute The Party Girl way, by celebrating like there is no Mañana and teaching you how to throw the best party this side of summer!
