Daylene ArnoldWhy blame anyone??? It all for fun and if you can't say anything nice dont say ANYTHING!5 days ago   ·  6
Vanessa LozadaI think this is great. Who cares if it's gaudy? If the girl is happy, the boy doesn't mind, and the mom enjoyed making it, more power to 'em. There are bigger things to complain about than this.5 days ago   ·  5
Kelly Ellisso many things that teens do adults think is not needed and over the top . we as adults need to remember they are teens and its THEIR time to have fun and do fun crazy things.5 days ago   ·  4
Judy Provence JenkinsIt's gorgeous! We all had a version of the mum I'm sure, but this is new era and this is what they do. I know our elders poked fun behind our backs. So lightened up and let kids enjoy THEIR time. 😀5 days ago   ·  3

Misty Christman-SilvaFirst, Blame Texas!!!! Do your research!!!! Kids who are transferred from another state to Texas had no clue of the Texas Tradition of the Mum. Yes, I agree they are way over the top but we are no longer in the 1960's. However, most parents incourage and the kids carry on this new tradition. I was disgusted when one of the girls last night bragged how hers was $1200....Again, as the article said "Texas created this new concept of the bigger the Mum, by everything is bigger in Texas!5 days ago   ·  2
Cerise GideonI think it is somewhat wasteful to spend so much on even smaller mums, but there is something particularly special about hearing the ribbons and bells as you walk down the halls. I never wanted one and yet, when I got one senior year I remember being thrilled about it. And as for this one not including a traditional "mum" I say GOOD FOR YOU!! and Cari, I agree your cousin looks great! The creativity that went into this mum can't be undone by the negative comments here. 4 days ago   ·  1
Kimberlie HoseyThese "mums" are a bit much and I have no idea how these ladies move and go about their day. Glad they're having a good time though.5 days ago   ·  1

Bee Jay AronThat's not a sign of spirit nor love. Heck you can't even see the dress. As I remember and not from the 60's that finding the prefect dress and color coordinating the outfit to the mum was the best part. And of course the meal with friends after the game. In this instance bigger isn't better. The one mum I loved the most was the one my highschool boyfriends mom made. Over the shoulder pretty yet not to much. Good memories5 days ago   ·  1

Charann Hodges VestThat's tacky, Not to mention it has nothing to do with school spirit (which is the whole point of a mum). These girls have to carry this around all day and to the game. What a pain to deal with just to get attention. Truth is... If you really felt that special you wouldn't have to try so hard by wearing a huge craft project to get attention. I think it's tacky. I'm just saying. Your beauty is lost behind this huge thing.4 days ago
Claudette BarringtonI don't think that girl looks to happy !4 days ago
Becky TrasterOh hell the mum is adorable! When I went to my first homecoming at Boswell about 23 years ago, we had hair bigger than Dallas and you could barely notice the mum under it. Hahaha. They are having fun and being kids. I agree anyone bragging about $1200 is a downright idiot, but to everyone who is having fun, being safe, and wants a big mum, go nuts! You're only young once.4 days ago

Nidia VargasSo much negativity!! All that matters is that he made it with love and that she loved it too!! Didn't your parents ever teach u "If u have nothing nice to say don't say nothing at all"6 days ago   ·  23
Olivia PadillaPeople in Texas saying her mum is too big? Isn't everything bigger in Texas? Her mum is just fine and it's not your homecoming. Grown ups need to learn to grow up and not put kids down.6 days ago   ·  23

Shawn BodilyWay too much, Surely 1/3 of the money spent on this would still suffice for something nice and donate the other 2/3 to charity or school fundaiser or something. Everybody has to outdo the next person.5 days ago   ·  5
