Therefore, for the party, you need to write an invitation to send to your family members to invite them to the party. The invitation will describe all the plans and activities of your Cinco de Mayo fiesta! Next, think of what you would need for a party to celebrate a national holiday. Use the internet to find out what is normally part of a Cinco de Mayo celebration. You might want to find more specific information about different parts of the celebration and you can use,, etc, to do so.
  • When you have enough information, you need to create your invitation.

Your invitation needs to be designed on the computer.
