27 Mums That Nailed The Whole Homecoming Thing

Maybe things are bigger in Texas. BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘posted_date’, 1409172986); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_posted_time_3429185”).innerHTML = “posted on ” + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(1409172986); });

Mums are an age-old tradition in Texas during homecoming.

They are big, wearable bouquets of mum flowers, streamers, ribbons and decorations to show school pride.

You give your homecoming date a mum to wear to both school and the homecoming football game.

Some choose to hand-make these for their dates, while the majority design them first, and then have companies create the finished product. Mums can cost hundreds of dollars.

But some mums go really, REALLY over the top:

1. There are ones that can sub as giant-ass valentines.

2. This one is for cat enthusiasts.

3. This-over-the-shoulder beauty.


4. For the Star Wars fan.
