Frequently Asked Questions


Question: I just moved to Texas and I am not familiar with homecoming mums. Can you tell me about the tradition of homecoming mums?
Answer: Yes. A homecoming mum is an oversized mum corsage decorated with three-foot long streamers in the school colors with bells, charms, banners, plush animals dressed in bows, sparkly letters and even lights. It is a highly popular tradition in schools in the Southwestern United States, especially in Oklahoma and Texas. Homecoming mums are usually worn in the middle of the chest with the streamers flowing down the front of the body almost touching the ankles. It makes quite a fashion statement! Homecoming mums can be given to the wearer by their boyfriend, friends, mom, dad, aunt or just about anyone to show how special they are and that they are truly loved.

Question: How much do homecoming mums generally cost?
Answer: A homecoming mum can cost $95.95 and up and depending upon the various customized upgraded items chosen. Homecoming mums can weigh as much as 10 pounds! Each homecoming mum is handcrafted by our award winning artists and we use only the finest top quality homecoming materials available.

Question: What is the difference between a regular homecoming mum/garter and a "Senior" homecoming mum/garter?
