View in slideshow The combination of bright Mexican textiles and treats, a garden backdrop, and some of our favorite Pottery Barn* classics inspired me to get a head start on Cinco de Mayo festivities. A punch bowl-turned terrarium, stacked bowl vases, and flowing fruit cake stand are just a few of the DIY centerpieces that transformed the table. Keep reading for simple styling tips to pull off your own Mexican tablescape for Cinco de Mayo and beyond! *This content was part of Pottery Barn's unpaid mystery box challenge To introduce texture and reinforce the garden theme, I turned two Montana Small Bowls ($16) into a vase. To get the look, fill your bottom bowl with moss, turn it upside down, and fill the top half with short-stemmed posies. Montana Small Bowls $16 from potterybarn.com Buy Now Instead of using more florals, I decided to give my Glass Display Hurricanes ($15 to $50) and Glass Punch Bowl ($50) a terrarium feel by filling them with sand, tiny succulents, and sculptural air plants. I can continue to decorate with them, unlike flowers, far after the fiesta.

Since I already had my sweets covered, I used this Claro Cake Stand ($30 to $50) to layer an assortment of seasonal fruit on a bed of moss.

I love the idea of pairing unfussy pastries on this Great White Three-Tier Stand ($45).
