-The Info-

Build Your Own Homecoming Mum or Garter allows you to customize your Homecoming Mum or Garter the way you like it. A Mums and Kisses Original, and our most popular product! Customers love that they can design their own and we do all the work. Another cool feature is that you control the price. if you’re wanting to design your own, or want something very unique to you, then this is the one for you!  You will be able to select EVERYTHING from start to finish from your name ribbons, activity trinkets and garland, your grade, bells, even your own colors and a TON more. You’ll also be able to add on additional items like glitter, boas, lights, extra jingle, (bells),etc. We do offer Build Your Own Mega Mums as well on our Mega Mum Page

Q: Why does the price change after I get to the checkout page?

A: As you build your mum you will be adding things to your liking. The price will increase as you add things to your mum. The prices are based on per item instead of per mum like the designer mums and garters. This IS a more expensive way to go, there’s no secret in that. If your cost gets high, you may choose a designer mum to stay on budget. Homecoming only comes once per year. The decision is all up to you!

Q: If I order today, how long does it take?

A: You Tell Us! Use our “Need By Date” calendar in the order form below. Select your delivery date If the date isn’t selectable then choose the Rush or Urgent option this will move the date up sooner. If your date still isn’t selectable then call us to see if we can get you in.

Q: The size options only let me choose up to a triple mum, I want to order a Quad or Mega Mum, can I do that?

A: The Mega Mums options are located on our Mega Mum page. The build your own mum is for garters and mums that are single, double and triple heart

Important: We organize orders by your “NEED BY DATE” not the date we receive them.

For Pick Up Orders: (DFW ONLY) We are located in Crowley (southwest Ft Worth) please note this when ordering.  NOTE; For Pick Up Orders Your Need By Date Date IS Your Pick Up Date.

For Shipped Orders, we will ship using your preferred method. Please allow us 48 hours to process and make your order + shipping time in most cases excluding rush orders.

For Rush / Urgent Orders – We charge a fee for rush orders and urgent orders. This fee will make your order a priority and move you up the list. The Rush and Urgent fees are NOT shipping fees, this is a labor fee we use to pay our employees overtime to make your order. Shipping in Texas takes 1-3 days via UPS Ground. You may upgrade shipping to 2nd day or overnight, which is not part of our free shipping offers.

NOTE: If you’re ordering on a Thursday, and your homecoming is Friday, your Mum will NOT reach you in time (even if shipped over night) to make it to you to wear to school / mum exchange etc.

    Special Needs Mums & Garters Here.

    Why this question? To prevent customer mix-ups when ordering. (Example: Ordering a mum for a boy when they really wanted a garter.) Other times customers intend on ordering a LBGTQ mum or garter. We like to ensure that we are making the order correctly regardless.
