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.

""Our officially licensed M&M’s candles add the perfect touch to any M&M birthday party. Just the presence of these candles will bring a glow to your guests’ faces.

More M&M Birthday Party Ideas and Supplies

Have your party guests write two adjectives that start with the letter M and describe the birthday guy/gal. When the festivities are over, you can place these notes in a scrapbook and enjoy them for years to come.  We used paint sample cards for our guests to jot their adjectives on, but you can be creative and use whatever you like.

Don’t forget to thank your guests for coming. These M&M candles will allow them to remember how much fun they had at your M&M themed birthday party. They’d also make great name card place holders (when not lit of course).

M&M Pretzel Recipe

These snacks could not be easier to make, and did we mention they taste divine? Place Rolos over pretzels and pop them into a 350° preheated oven for 3 minutes. Once the Rolos have melted, press an M&M into the center and allow them to cool.
m&m dessert

Cupcake cones are all the rage. The instructions for this sweet treat can be found on our Pinterest M&M Birthday Party Ideas board.

M&M Birthday Party Games

Our list of M&M birthday party ideas would not be complete without some great games to keep your company entertained.

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.
