Mexican-Themed Simple & Colorful Centerpieces

These Mexican themed centerpieces may be our favorites, but honestly – who ever saves the best for last, ever? What really won us over was the sheer simplicity and elegance of these centerpieces. Placed in relatively generic water-filled vases or even jars, make sure you fill these beauties to the brim with brightly colored flowers… Or skip the real stuff and just go straight to the source with a wide array of brightly colored Mexican paper flowers. Don’t forget to mix it up a bit by throwing in some (inexpensive) cactuses to boot!
