Blasblog: Flower Power
As he himself will tell you, when Carlos Mota put together his first book, Flowers: Chic & Cheap, he was hoping that some of his decoration-loving friends would be willing to host a few fêtes for the tome. Well, he got what he asked for: Since the tome came out in May, Mota has done parties uptown and downtown and even across the ocean. “In the end, I think I’ll be promoting this thing for longer than it took me to put it together,” he joked. “Not that I’m complaining. You know me: I love a good party.” And apparently, a good party loves him. Last night, John Demsey (pictured, left, with Mota) hosted a sit-down dinner for Mota in his Upper East Side town house, bringing the likes of Marjorie Gubelmann, Stefano Tonchi, Cynthia Rowley, Anne McNally, Rachel Roy, Adam Lippes, and Cornelia Guest. Dinner was served at three tables on the second floor, with each seat bearing its own personalized arrangement. Many people, including Tonchi, mistook them for artificial. “But he does amazing fake arrangements,” W‘s new editor in chief protested. This one, at least, was more chic than cheap.
