Decorating your M&M Birthday Party
For our M&M party, we abandoned flower centerpieces and opted for a more creative display. Why not use colorful M&M’s to create a design or mosaic on your table? The sky is the limit for creative party planners.
Not only are these M&M place settings budget friendly, but they are simple to create.
Napkin Rings: Cut off the top and bottom of an M&M’s mini package and then slide the napkin of your choice through the ring.
Plates: This can be done with clear plastic or glass plates. Get some construction paper and cut out a circle that fits the size of your plate. Then overlap your circle with a letter m and simply place your plate over the circle. TADA! You have yourself an M&M plate.

M&M Birthday Party Games
Pin the M on the M&M – Lucky for us, these M&M characters are not too difficult to sketch. Just grab a piece of tag board and sketch away. Then cut out additional letter M’s for the participants to pin.
M&M Bingo- Replace regular ole’ bingo counters with M&M’s. WARNING: You’ll have to advise your guests to not eat all their counters before the game is through. If you don’t have any bingo cards, Martha Stewart has a great, free bingo card template.
M&M Guessing Game – Attractively display your M&M’s in a jar and let your guests take a stab at guessing how many there are. Be sure to have door prizes for the winners. If you want to recreate the M&M candy wrapper flowers in our jar, follow the tutorial below.
M&M Bean Bag Toss – Substitute bean bags with packets of M&M’s and toss away. Use either a traditional bean bag toss or purchase colorful pails for the M&M packets to be tossed into.
More great M&M birthday party ideas include, having your guests create M&M butterflies, or using them to decorate at your party. All you need is a pipe cleaner and a bag of M&M’s.
