I'm from MO and we did it in high school for football and basketball Homecomings. I was a cheerleader and ours were real mums with a royal blue M in the center. The pep club sold them as a fundraiser.

Today, the high schools around here don't do that anymore. Corsages especially wrist ones are all the rage for Homecoming and Prom. Our exchange students both had beautiful wrist corsages! My kids are still younger, but we may have to bring back the tradition! LOL

I have family members in IL and they do not do Homecoming. They have Coronation and wow!!!! The dresses of the girls on the Court look like wedding dresses and cost that much too! The girls have to curtsy all the way down to the floor and it's a major deal with tickets being sold to see it! No mums there--only roses!

Sometimes I see people making mums for new moms as well. Its not insanely popular but they sell a ton of stuff to make them for babies

Thanks for the info! AND NOW that the previous poster mentioned that she's seen it for new moms, it made me remember that my sister took all the ribbons, bows from my shower presents added baby trinkets to them and I guess when I think about it, It is similar to a mum too

My sister would make mine every year. We'd go to Michael's and Hobby Lobby. They have all the school colors(ones in that area). My senior year she put lights in mine . They're pretty easy to make, just time consuming!
