Celosia Centerpiece for the Holidays

By P. Allen Smith

celosia holiday centerpiece decorI always look to the farm for inspiration when planning out my holiday décor. We’ve been lucky enough to have a mild autumn, and I get to reap the rewards! The Dragon’s Breath Celosia have hung around, and their bold red plumes look gorgeous in my table arrangements for the Christmas season.

I love using Celosia in arrangements. That’s one of the reasons I grow it as part of my Home Grown Cut Flower Collection. I’ve created a centerpiece for my dining room table using a bunch of greenery and other odds and ends that I collected from around the farm along with Dragon Breath Celosia. I really wanted the deep red plumes to pop, so I kept everything else neutral.

What do you have in your garden that you can incorporate into your holiday décor?
