Homecoming is coming up, so you know what that means: Mums!

Mums are a Texas tradition, a huge bouquet of flowers that girls wear in honor of homecoming.

Students can make it themselves or they can go to a store and buy one. If you are making one, you can find basic items at Walmart, Target, Hobby Lobby, or Micheal’s.

If you want to buy a mum, here are some places that make them:

  • The Mum Queen – 5302 Nodaway Ln, Spring, TX 77379
  • Twinkie Designs Homecoming Mums and Garters – 14902 Golden Hawk Trail, Cypress, TX 77433
  • Peachy Keen Mums, Garters & More – 17907 St Helen Ln, Spring, TX 77379
  • Silver Strawberry – 30006 TX-249, Tomball, TX 77375 (right by the school!)
