They say a mum is a mum right? So what am I actually getting? Some mums are the same, some are not. Revealing a “trade secret” here, some mum creators use, wait for it…
Premade mums! *gasp*
Did you just say Huh?
Explanation: Premade mums are mums that come from the manufacturer already made, ribbons and all. The mum seller is simply adding a couple of ribbons to it with your name grade and favorite activity and selling it to you. Remember too that many people CAN make their own mums, it’s not THAT hard. The surprise to people that make their own mums, is how much it costs to buy all the ribbon. Ribbon is expensive!
So back to the original question, what am I actually getting?
On the photo to the left you’ll see two base mums. The photo on the left is “Their Premade Mum Base” and on the right, “Our Custom Made Mum Base”. Both are basic, no customizations or décor. At the big box hobby shops you’ll pay $39.99 for their base mum on the left with no décor.
At Mums and Kisses, you’re are NOT going to get a either of these mums. We don’t do premade mum and we don’t sell our custom made mum base. We are too detailed for that. You’ll get a fully décored mum, names trinkets, homecoming charms and more. And let’s face it you want your purchase to be something more than everyone else has. Here’s how:
We make every piece of your mum FROM SCRATCH and by hand.
- Your mum is made in the U.S.A.
- The ribbon is a very important and mums are a mix of many different types of ribbons. The hobby stores will sell you a mum made only out of acetate, a stiff ribbon, weather proof, but not quite as quality and beautiful as straight satin. With us, you’ll get a mix of 4-12 different types of ribbon in the same mum. Our base ribbon at times will be acetate to give the mum a durable base, then we’ll use satin, double faced satin, silk, beads, pearls, rhinestones and other quality material to accent, and even lace.
- We create each mum different, no mum that leaves our company is ever the same. We feel that this is important for our customers individuality.
- With Mums and Kisses you’re getting what we call a “Designer Mum”. A designer mum made with the Mums and Kisses brand is higher quality, reasonably priced and unique to each customer.
- It does take some skill to put a mum together that doesn’t look like a mess. Yes all things are bigger in Texas but Texans demand quality! At Mums and Kisses that’s our biggest goal. To give you something you’ll be proud to sport to your homecoming game!
- You’ll get something TRULY custom. And to your specifications on the build your own mum page. We offer several collections of designer mums but if you want to design your own from scratch, you can! And ALL online without ever having to pick up the phone or leave the house!
