Blue M&M Ideas

Updated on March 20, 2013

Whos The Blue M&M? The Cool Chocolate Behind The Glassses and Big Grin.

You know when the Blue M&M has arrived. He's cool, he's calm, he's confident. Never on time but when he gets there the party gets started. He's always entertaining and never does the same thing twice. He likes dark sunglasses, motorcycles, jazz music and hanging out with his friends.

The blue M&M is everyone's best friend, he's loyal and trusting. You always know that he will be there, even if he is running a little late.

The Facts: The Blue M&M was Introduced in1995 after a marketing event asking M&M lovers everywhere to vote for the next M&M color. The choices on the ballet was blue, pink, purple or for the tan M&M to stay. With over ten million votes tallied over 50% of the voters voted for the blue M&M.

Meaning Of The Phrase Blue M&M:

In my book the word Blue M&M is not just a piece of chocolate candy. If someone did something really cool or something just out of the ordinary great, they did a Blue M&M.

It's Not Just Any Party, It's A Blue M&M Birthday Party

Below Are Just A Few Ideas To Get The Party Started

Invitation Ideas:

Cut out circles in blue construction paper, cut out two for each invitation you need. If you are going to hand deliver them you can make them any size you wish, if they need to go through the mail you need to make sure they can fit into an envelope. Lay the circles on top of each other and use a whole punch to make on whole on the top of each circle. Use a pretty ribbon tie two circle together at a time. (Blue ribbon will work but many craft stores M&M Character ribbon.) Print the M&M logo on the outside of the cards and write party information inside the card.

Decoration Ideas:

For Blue M&M party decorations use a blue tablecloth and other supplies as you can, get some helium filled M&M shaped balloons to add some fun. Have a Blue M&M balloon and on the birthday "kid's" chair, then use other colors to fill the room. Every cool Blue M&M has lots of M&M buddies, they do not have to be all blue. Make sure to leave out a few bowls or cups filled with M&M's for all the guests to snack on.

A Few Cake Options:

To make a easy Blue M&M cake bake a chocolate cake in a round pan. Cool the cake then flip the cake on to it's top onto a plate. Ice the cake with blue icing then add the M&M logo with white icing.

Rather have cupcakes. Make chocolate cupcakes and use blue wrappers. After they cool off, ice with blue icing and top with lots of M&M's.

Want to go really simple make M&M and chocolate chip cookies. Giant Cookie M&M cakes can also be used.

      I still hold a grudge against the blue ones for knocking out the superior brown ones.

      Hersheys sure know how to market their M&Ms. I used to have a serious M&M habit when I was still working. Every afternoon I'd scrounge through my purse and pockets for quarters for the vending machine.
