Planning a Bridal Shower / with MY M&M’S

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for MY M&M’S. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.

Yellow and Aqua Summer Bridal Shower Palette- Lost and FawnedI love planning parties.  I don’t have enough excuses to really go all out though.  This summer I have the honor of planning a bridal shower for my good friend and sister-in-law.  I’m planning a joint shower for the beautiful couple this summer.  We are working on nailing down a venue this week, but some of the finer details falling into place.  I’m thinking lemonade, wildflower centerpieces, a few simple games and potted flowers and herbs as prizes.

Favors can be tough.  So many favors end up in the kitchen junk drawer or in the bottom of your purse.  You really can’t go wrong with chocolate though, and M&M’s have been a classic since 1941.  MY M&M’S makes it super easy.  It was probably the easiest part of the entire planning process so far.  In about 10 minutes, I was able to select the perfect colors to coordinate with the event palette, customize them with a monogram I designed and have them ordered and on their way.

My MandM Favors for a July Bridal ShowerOnce they arrive on my doorstep from MY M&M’S, I’m planning to create a simple favor that will really show off the candy.  I ordered clear square cello bags and will seal them with a custom printed sticker.  I think they will be a perfect take-away for guests.  Any extra M&M’s will go in bowls on the tables to add some extra color and pattern.

A huge ‘thank you’ MY M&M’s for kindly letting us try their customization services.  It’s going to really help make this shower special for my dear friends.  Stay tuned for a follow-up to see how the favors turn out.
