Chrysanthemum Chic

Time to be honest…I don’t usually think of mums as chic…in fact, they usually conjure up memories of long-ago Homecoming football games. I’m not sure if the football mum is a Texas tradition or if others find it attractive to pin a 30 lb. mum with hanging streamers and trinkets to their girlfriend’s new outfit. Anyway, after seeing these photos, I have a new appreciation for mums.

They’ve come a long way, right? What are your thoughts on mums?

Happy Tuesday!

I will forever love spider mums, but I like these also. The curling petals are so soft and romantic to me. But I'd be cool if the streamers were forever left behind.

Those are gorgeous! I love the pink mums in the last photo and the yellow mums. So much prettier than I remembered.

I've just started to appreciate the football mum in the past few months. It really is a pretty & feminine bloom, isn't it??

I love the bronze colored football mums - it's such a hard color to find in flowers.
