Meet the Designer

Flowers l Travel l Community

Hi, I'm Sylvia, founder of Cape Lily.

I'm a South African floral designer living in New York.  I was born in South Africa to a florist and a gardener, surrounded by infinite lush indigenous floral vegetation to play with. I still believe that the flowers grown closest to you are the best quality and I prefer to design with locally grown or "slow" flowers. 

Before returning to my floral roots I was a Management Consultant specializing in IT Services, Process Design & Project Management for government institutions and Fortune 500 companies in London and New York. 


Today I use the skills from my corporate days to benefit my new clients: simplifying and optimizing the wedding experience for our brides and curating immersive travel experiences for fellow creatives and flower lovers looking to escape on a Botanical Journey.
