Our Cupcake and Favor Table
My Daughter's M & M Party
We hosted an M & M theme party for my daughter's 13th birthday. This page will feature all of our party details and photos.
If you are planning this theme for your child's next celebration, you will find everything you will need for your party planning right here! You will find decorations including balloons, officially licensed birthday banners, custom made table centerpieces, stand up party decorations and more.
Other supplies you will find here include party favors, birthday cake & cupcake supplies, party game ideas and personalized party invitations.
Our Party Invitations
We were lucky to find the officially licensed party invitations pictured below on eBay. These invites are no longer available, but you can find personalized invitations on eBay.
Our Party Table
We decorated the party table with custom made centerpieces, placemats and balloons. We used colorful tableware and 13th birthday napkins & balloons. I hung a birthday banner in the party room, too.

We used primary colored baking liners for our cupcakes. We topped the cupcakes with custom made paper cupcake toppers.
Our Party Cupcakes - The cupcakes were decorated with custom made paper toppers.
Custom Cupcake Toppers
You can purchase bottle cap images to create your paper cupcake toppers. Simply matte the images onto cardstock and punch out using a circle or scalloped paper punch. Then attach a toothpick or lollipop stick and insert into your frosted cupcakes.
Our party favor bags included socks, candy, tins and journals. We placed the socks in the tins. For the party favor bags, we used primary colored gift bags embellished with custom made favor tags and labels.

I got some really great deals on our party favor items and the completed party favor bags cost me less than $5 each! I found the candy tins at my local AC Moore for .99, the socks at a shoe store at the mall for .99 and the journals at Party City for .99.
Our Party Favors - Fun goodies to fill our party favor bags.
I purchased books and the kids colored and did other silly activities. Even at age 13, they loved it! They also played M & M Yahtzee and M & M Twister. I decorated a plain pinata with M & M images and they did a pinata activity as well.
