Carlos Mota is a treasure hunter--one who is innovative. In his book regarding "arrangements with flowers from the market or backyard," Carlos provides readers with interesting ways to form beautiful flower arrangements from close-to-home items.

From reused paint cans, to salsa jars, to vintage teapots-- Carlos has used them all.

Carlos signed copies of his newest book for a range of socialites and fashion gurus. Kate Schelter, Kelly Bensimon, Bonnie Morrison, and Amanda Hearst were just a few guests who snagged copies of the book.
