About Cape Lily

Cape Lily is a floral design business focused on connecting people to nature through floral experiences.


Founded in 2017, our studio designs elevated flowers for weddings & events, leads botanical workshops and small group travel and recently launched a range of floral wallpaper.

We are passionate about sourcing locally grown, seasonal and sustainable flowers in keeping with the "slow flowers" ethos and building a community of passionate flower and garden lovers in the New York area.
