Easy Party Favors For Any Occasion

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of My M&M’S for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

From Birthday Dinner parties to Cookie Exchange parties, I love having a party favor to thank my guests for taking time out of their day to join me for these occasions.

While I do not go over board, they are simple but thoughtful tokens. There is something special about a coming home with a little reminder of an event.

personalized My M&MS When I started hosting my own holiday parties when I was single,  18 years ago,  I remember creating my first party favor, a plastic Christmas cookie cutter filled with red and green M&M’s. Simple but festive gift for each guest.

This year I plan on making personalized MyMMs.com to create party favors for my daughters small birthday dinner party and my cookie exchange. I headed to My M&M’s.com to see what they had to offer. Unlike any holiday combination they sell, you are in control of the color theme , you can pick up to 3 different colors.

Party favors come in all shape and sizes so you can buy a big bulk bag to create your own party favors you might have in mind or buy one of their party favor packages.

I went ahead and purchased a few smaller bags for my daughter’s birthday.

M&M Party Favors

Here is a closer look at my bag of Christmas M&M’s for my cookie exchange party favors. Did not want to open up the sealed bag until closer to the holidays so I created filled the tins with my daughters Birthday M&M’s.

Just fill them with the personalized M&M’s  and you can seal them with a sticker or ribbon, its up to  you.

Not only do your friends get to enjoy time with friends, but they can snack on their party favor and recall all the funny moments.

M&M's Cake

Since we had enough birthday M&M’s for our guests party favors, we added a few to our Birthday Girls Cake. What a fun way to decorate a cake and get some extra chocolate.

  2. Yum cake! I have always wanted to do these M&Ms! I need to think of a time to do them. I love those soccer balls!

  3. This is really the coolest thing for parties. I’d love to make them for my daughter. The biggest problem would be choosing colors! There are so many great combinations!

  4. What a great way to personalize your favors. I really love how you used the M & Ms on the cake, too. My daughter is turning 9 in a couple of months and I’d love to do something with this for her.
    Thanks for the great idea!

  5. I think M&Ms are just about perfect for any occasion! Bowls and flavors out for snacks or as an add on to cupcakes, cakes, cookies or bars. They really are super versatile and who doesn’t’ love M&Ms?

  6. I so need to do this fro son’s 16th birthday. I could get them in his favorite colors of pink and purple with 16 written on them. So awesome I am off to order.

  7. I’ve always wanted to do these but never remembered in time so I just went with the regular ones from the store. That cake looks SO yummy.

  8. I really like the Holiday M&Ms and think they would look so cute on my Cupcakes that I am making for the Holidays. I will have to get some of these. I would buy M&M’s for birthdays and the Holidays.
