Their mums are two of the smaller sets of flower of their group of friends. DD's reaches the floor with the ribbons!!!

So Helen and ERK. Shall I bring the tradition across the pond?? lol!
Hmmm. I'm not sure if they do mums here. I haven't heard anything about them in the years ODS has been in high school.

Back at my high school, one of the school clubs used to sell the mums (for like $1/each, it wasn't much). You could buy one for whomever you wanted, and the club would deliver it to that person the morning of the homecoming game. Mainly boys bought them for their girlfriends, but some of the clique-y girls would buy them for their besties. So all the really popular girls would end up with 3 or 4 mums. They weren't all decorated up as much as in E's photos; they were just plain yellow mums with green and white ribbons (the school colors were green, gold and white). My senior year, my best friend and I bought mums for each other so neither of us would be mum-less.

E lost me on the "mini mums" and finger thing.
