7 Reasons to Order Your Homecoming Mum or Garter Early

Updated: May 18

Start Planning Your 2024 Homecoming Order Today

Happy New Year friends, we made it through the first month on 2024! I don't know about you, but it went fast. As we open up orders for 2024, we wanted to give you some tips for early ordering and give you some updates for the 2024 ordering season. Make sure to check out our updated photo gallery.

1. Orders are open earlier than before due to demand for custom mums & garters, especially SENIORS

We LOVE making custom, detailed mums & garters for our customers and the hardest thing we have to do during HOCO season is to tell a new or returning customer that we do not have a spot. Every year we work on preparing earlier than previous years and 2024 is a must! We have a record number of rising seniors this year and anticpate filling up on custom senior orders very quickly. Class of 2025 we need your help - if you know you will be ordering a senior mum from us, please order as soon as possible and pass this information on to your friends as well. Don't worry we can make minor adjustments to your order such as adding names and activities for a date or adding a new activity for yourself.

2. Enter to Win a $200 RG Mums Gift Card

Completed orders with deposits paid by June 30th receive two entries into the drawing for a $200 RG Mums gift card.

3. Pay for your dream mum over time

February and March orders only require a 25% deposit with additional 25% payments due the first day of April, June, and August.

April and May orders will require a 33% deposit with additional payments due the first day of June, and August.

June and July orders will require a 50% deposit with the remaining 50% balance due August 1st

All orders after July 30, 2024 require full payment at time of order.

As always, you are welcome to pay for your mum or garter in full at time of order.

4. The earlier you order, the more custom options are available - along with a FREE design consultation

Our online store is active with all the available options for designing your dream mum or garter. As we get closer to school starting next year, some options will no longer be available even if we still have spots open for your homecoming week. This will allow us to leave spots open for semi-custom mums as needed during homecoming season. Order early to ensure your must-have options are still available.

As a bonus for supreme and ultimate orders in February, we are offering additional custom color choices along with choosing your imprint ribbon and a 30 minute facetime consultation.

5. Refer a friend through May 31st and earn upgrades for yourself

We love and appreciate all the referrals from our customers each year. If you order your mum or garter before April 30th, we are offering $25 per referral in FREE upgrades for any new customer you send our way who also places an order by May 31st as well. Tell them to add your name at the bottom of their order form and we will take care of the rest. Earn credits towards the mum of your dreams!

6. Homecoming mum orders received by July 1st guarantee a spot for a coordinating garter

Want to order your homecoming mum but worried you will need a matching garter for a date closer to homecoming? Many times our clients who order their own mum let their date know they have a spot secured for a matching garter and this helps eveyone not have to worry to find someone who can make a garter close to homecoming.

When you order your mum up to June 30, 2024, we will secure a spot for the same level garter and you can add if needed up to 14 days before homecoming even if we are sold out.

7. Not ready to order, fill out the 2024 HOCO survey

Along with the expected high number of senior orders, we want to make sure we have room for our returning underclassmen. If you are not ready to order, the best way to help us prepare is by filling out our 2024 HOCO Survey in our online store. It is free, short, and allows us to keep preparing for the season. Please note, the survey does not hold you to any commitment to order and it also does not guarantee you a spot.

Eveyone who completes an order or fills out a survey by June 30, 2024 will be entered in a drawing for a RG Mums gift card!

Happy designing friends. Feel free to reach out via e-mail or chat if you have any questions throughout the year. Stay tuned for more posts on design trends and new product offerings.
