Finally, after hours and hours spent filling out applications and writing college essays, and then enduring the interminable waiting game, college acceptance (and rejection) letters are beginning to trickle in. Our advice is simple — toss the rejection letters. And celebrate every acceptance whether it is your first choice school or your safety school! Celebrate your achievements and the schools who appreciate you! Once you narrow your choices down and ultimately make the final decision as to which school will be the lucky school to include you in their class of 2020, begin wearing your new school colors. Splurge on college gear. Buy college t-shirts and sweatshirts, hats and caps, college pennants, bedding, watches and jewelry, and anything and everything else to proclaim your new college spirit.

School colors. School spirit. School roses.
We are so sorry. It looks as if FTD is no longer carrying college roses 🙁
Whether you are an entering college freshman or a university alum, FTD offers an extraordinary selection of rainbow roses that will help you celebrate your school colors and your school spirit. Although they do not yet have vases that represent every university FTD has indicated that it is working hard to forge relationships with more and more colleges across the county.
If you are a current student (or are related to one) these fabulous bi-color rose bouquets can both be given and received for such special occasions as birthdays and graduation but they also make festive additions to homecoming events, football games, Greek parties and “deliveries”, and best yet, to celebrate the many accomplishments and milestones reached throughout your life.
So next time your are looking for that little something special to represent your college colors and college spirit – think college roses!
An OMG Big Brother & Big Sister Baby Shower Gift
We just found car seat covers too!
Just when when we think there are no more products to put a logo on we are giddy with surprise. These team spirit booster seats make for an OMG big brother & big sister baby shower gift. How perfect is this for a couples shower where so many of the friends invited are college buddies and gal pals of the dad and mom-to-be. Yes, we admit we are jumping the gun because these team spirit booster seats are not meant to replace your car seat. These are the seats your child graduates into once they are at least 40 pounds and 4 years of age.
It is the gizmo you keep your child in until he or she is big enough to fit in a seat belt properly. Obviously, only consider this gift if the parents-to-be have the room to store it or if they have an older child who will soon be passing along his or her car seat to the new baby and graduating into a booster seat. Clearly we are true believers that indoctrination into the Trojan Nation, or whatever your favorite college team, works best when started early!
These booster seats would also make great birthday presents and holiday gifts for children making the transition into the “big kid” booster seat, especially if they are whining that they are old enough and do not need a booster seat. Please, please, do not cave into the whine – according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention)
“Booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45% for children aged 4–8 years when compared with seat belt use alone!”
Homecoming Float Decorations & Supplies
As Junior Class President my job was to coordinate all class spirit activities including organizing the Junior Homecoming Dance and making sure we had the best Homecoming parade float including ordering all the homecoming float decorations and supplies. However, try as we might our floats always looked a bit rumpled and definitely homemade, in the worst sense of the term. Today there really is no excuse not to make a professional looking float since Stumps carries any and all of the Float Materials for Homecoming Parades you could ever imagine.
Think fringe, grass mats, floral sheeting, spirit poms & pomp squares, standees, giant 3-D letters and personalized spirit banners. With the right homecoming float decorations & supplies you are only limited by your own imagination.
Be sure to take advantage of this special Save $25 on Homecoming Orders – every little bit helps!
