  1. […] Things I Love – Celosia Amy McNall: Posted on January 31, 2011 9:46 PM  This planner is truly a sucker for beautiful, unique flowers.  Right now, I'm loving celosia, also known as "cockscomb" or "brain celosia".  So called because of its texture, celosia is truly different than the "traditional" wedding flowers.  With its funky texture and range of fun, bright colours, celosia is the perfect way to add character and personality to your wedding flowers.  This soft, ruffled flower can be used all on its own or combined with any number of other flowers to create unique, memorable arrangements.  Use the following pictures for inspiration, and let your creativity be your guide! Red Celosia Photos from:www.stevenbrucedesign.blogspot.com/2010/08/private-wedding-in-august.htmlwww.amandasharpfloraldesign.blogspot.comwww.posiesandpippa.wordpress.com/2010/02/22/peonie-and-feather-bouquet Yellow CelosiaPhotos from:www.grandi-flora.blogspot.com/2009_08_01_archive.htmlwww.buttonholeandcorsage.blogspot.com/2009/07/vivid-shades-of-buttonholes-corsages.htmlwww.blackspecials.info/celosia-kurume-corona-1-pkt-15-seeds.asp Pink CelosiaPhotos from:www.theflowerpot.com/3-73-168-bridal-bouquet.aspxwww.bridesmaidsbouquet.blogspot.com/2009/07/hot-pink-bridesmaids-bouquets.htmlhttp://www.flowersbyspecialarrangement.com/Special-Occasions.html Orange CelosiaPhotos from:www.flowersbyspecialarrangement.com/Special-Occasions.htmlwwww.scarletpetal.typepad.com/weblog/2010/08/the-wit-hotel-wedding-jennifer-and-bryan.htmlwww.flowersbyspecialarrangement.com/Valentines-Day-Flowers.html Green CelosiaPhotos from:www.plumsageflowers.blogspot.com/2010_07_01_archive.htmlwww.flowersbyspecialarrangement.com/Special-Occasions.htmlwww.wedding-flowers-and-reception-ideas.com/green-bridal-bouquet-ideas.htmlwww.brides.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=51262&start=180&tstart=0 Celosia is in season in late summer and early fall, though it is available year round at most florists'.  It also comes in various shades, from vibrant and rich to light and soft.  Incorporating this interesting flower will definitely infuse your wedding flowers with a sense of fun and unique character.  Celosia is an unmistakable addition to any bouquet, boutonniere, corsage, or centerpiece arrangement.     […]
