Lilac and the Cat is Melbourne's leading ethical and eco-friendly florist. We are the perfect example of holistically focused, uncontrolled natural energy in Floral design - where sophistication meets raw creativity and intutition is lead by each floral bouquet.
Founder Janelouise has a passion for creating wildly rambling and eco influenced flora designs. She sources locally grown blooms and forages ethically from farms and surburban backyards. With 24 years in the flower industry, she leads her team of experienced florists and pays homage to every flower which was originally part of an intricate ecosystem and eartly gift.
Lilac and the Cat is committed to operating in an ecological, sustainable and ethical manner.
We never use cellophane, floral foam or ribbons or any unnatural elements in our flora designs instead we opt for recycled materials, and we love using up-cycled vases and pots where possible. We follow the Seasons and honour them by committing to buying seasonally and locally grown blooms first and foremost and turn them into beautiful flower designs held with mindfulness and love.
At Lilac and the Cat, we go beyond the visual and tactile elements when creating our designs. During her 24 years in the industry, Janelouise has developed a keen understanding of the emotional effect that flowers can have as well as their ability to influence the atmosphere of a space.
We offer same or next day delivery to all parts of Richmond and the Melbourne CBD as well as surrounding suburbs including, Fitzroy, Carlton, Brunswick, Footscray, Maribyrnong, Essendon, Seddon, South Yarra, Yarraville and Kensington and all outer suburbs.
