DIY Floral Cinco de Mayo Centerpiece

May 1, 2015

In honor of Cinco De Mayo, put a festive touch on your space with a simple Cinco De Mayo centerpiece! Whether you’re celebrating with a full-fledged fiesta or simply want to show your support, put yourself in the Cinco de Mayo mood by adding a festive centerpiece to your space!

For the flowers, opt for an arrangement that is vibrant and reminiscent of traditional Mexican colors if possible. We used flowers from the It’s Your Day Bouquet from 1-800-Flowers.com which really made this Cinco De Mayo decoration pop. I then came across mini fruit lollipops at my local party supply store and slipped them in for an extra festive touch!

Directions for Cinco de Mayo Centerpiece

First, choose an appropriate vase to fit into the head part of your sombrero.

Align it with the top and cut out a hole wide enough to fit the vase through, taking extra care to avoid making it too wide. You want the sombrero to still “hug” the vase even with the large hole.

Fill the vase with water, trim your flowers to fit and arrange to your liking.
