Lavender Green Flowers honoured to design the wreath laid by HRH the Prince of Wales

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 10:00

Lavender Green Flowers, renowned as one of London’s finest florists were extremely honoured to design the wreath laid by HRH the Prince of Wales, to mark the centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey on Armistice Day, Wednesday 11th November 2020.

The wreath was commissioned to be a recreation of the wreath laid on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior by George V in 1920, based on a surviving press photography and a description found in the Times.

The foliage which formed the wreath consisted of Laurus Nobilis (bay) for the crown of victors, with a restrained number of deepest red ‘Baccarat’ roses. It was an oval wreath, and as these aren’t made anymore the frame had to be made especially, as were the wooden crest and ribbon that the design incorporated.
