About The Mum Queen Elizabeth Cleaver
Hi! I am Liz Cleaver, or Mrs. C, as many have called me. I have been creating Homecoming Mums and Garters for over 30 years and feel that my talent and passion for creativity is a gift from God. I love every moment of creating a mum or garter from the visualization while speaking with a client, to the creation and carefully choosing each piece to make it uniquely special for that one person who will cherish it along with the memories of their very special Homecoming.
Homecoming Mum creation starts in January, where I attend the Dallas Market and Craig Bachman in Chicago to bring you the latest trends and bling to the table.
I also run a Facebook group called Homecoming Mum Inspiration, where I mentor ~300 Homecoming Mum Makers throughout Texas and Oklahoma. This is my way of giving back and helping the younger generation to carry on this Texas Tradition.
My Unicorn Mum has been featured on the Lion Ribbon Facebook page and Lion Ribbon has also asked me to create a mum for their showroom at the Dallas Market. I also teach classes for L&M Wholesale in Glen Rose, TX for their mum show and this year I have been asked to design for the Southern Floral Mum Show in Houston TX.
In 2019 I was In 2017 I was featured in the Wall Street Journal, where they spent a day with me, experiencing the true mum making world events from a client placing an order, me completing an order, seeing the joy of the client picking up their order. It was truly a rewarding experience in the end the report from California wanted me to make her a mum. My mums were featured in a Sonic ad representing the Texas Tradition of Homecoming Mums. I was also featured on KTRK Channel 13 Houston and KHOU 11 Houston several times on TV.
My business name was actually given to me by several of my Klein High School kids . In the early years they started calling me Mrs. C The Mum Lady. In the last few years, the name "The Mum Queen" came to fruition. I believe my work speaks for itself. My designs are based on beauty and elegance. I was the first to create the senior white and gold Homecoming Mum in my daughters Senior year. Moving forward I am also the one that introduced color in the traditional school color blends.
The memories of the faces through the years when I bring out that special mum is always priceless. I have shipped my mums all over the US. It is my pleasure to have been in business long enough to be able to create mums for the children of my previous clients. I simply love what I do. In the past all of my business came from satisfied customers.
Creating Homecoming Mums and Garters is my way of helping you save a special memory for a lifetime. When Homecoming is over and you have spent several years out of High School, you will always have this special keepsake to remind you of your wonderful memories of this day. It is my honor to be part of that.
