While most natural tables command can be embedded within other command
the cells have to see the end command.
I guess this shouldn't be a problem for your case because something
simpler can be used to create your desired layout but you have to
provide more information:
1. Are there blocks side by side or do you stack them only vertically?
2. Do you need a frame around each block?
3. Are (small) gaps between the blocks allowed?
