This arrangement is our interpritation of the mele (song) Queen's Jubilee.
Composed by Lili'uokalani at the Alexandrea Hotel in London on June 20, 1887. The then crowned Princess, Lili'uokalani traveled to London to attend the Jubilee celebration of Queen Victoria's 50th year reign.
Enroute to the event, Lili'uokalani composed this beautiful mele, paying tribute to England's Queen. The love and humility that Lili'uokalani is remembered for shines through each verse.
"E ola ka Mo’i ke akua" - God bless the Queen, long may she live
In honor of Hawaii's last reigning monarch, this arrangement holds a King protea and is adorned by white roses with a variety of fillers.
