How do I center align a block element horizontally in CSS?

I'm new to CSS layouts and I'm trying to build a simple color-picker. I have it created, but I can't get it to align in the center horizontally. I know this has something to do with it being a block element and text-align: center; not working, and I know that typically you use margin: auto; to align block elements, but no matter what I try it stays on the left. In the past I would have just put it in a table, but I'm trying to stop using tables for layout purposes ;) Any tips greatly appreciated.
