Using Enchilada Cans as a Vase in the Mexican Folk Art Shop

El Pato as a Vase

El Pato Enchilada Can as Vase

One of my very sweet friends gave me a bouquet once per week for a month to celebrate the opening of the new shop at 50th & Bryant in Minneapolis. When she asked me if I had any Mexican vases to use for rotating the bouquets every week, I thought of the colorful red and yellow cans used by El Pato to can their tomato and enchilada sauces. Most Mexican grocery stores carry them…you can make one of these colorful bouquets to add a little Mexico to your summer life!

Viva la Vida…
