M&M’s Get Personal

Posted by terrepruitt on March 27, 2019

Party favors and whatnot. Do you like those kinds of things? Personal things that help add to the specialness of an event? I do. I love all that stuff. I went to a party that my friend had and she had goodies bags for all of her guests. They were full of silly kinds of things. Most of them could be worn to take pictures – you know how it is done now-a-days with props for a photo booth? Well, she had glasses and jewelry to be worn while taking Polaroids. It made for some great pictures. Well, I didn’t want to get that fancy and have things to buy and bags to make. But, did you know you can get personalized M&M’s? I learned about them for her party a few years ago. Her favorite color is pink so we had some pink ones personalized for her. I don’t see that I have any pictures of hers. I don’t remember what they said – otherwise I could have used the same sayings. When I had my 50th party I wanted some personalize M&M’s too! I ordered mine in blue. It is not easy thinking of a personalized message with only 9 letters per line. There are a lot of things you can choose, but the idea is PERSONALIZED. So here is what I ended up with:

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit, City of San Jose Exercise Classes, Cambrian Yoga & Cardio Dance, CYCDTerre’s 1/2 c.
50 y/o TP!
Terre’s 50!
Terre’s FIFTY!

I mean, the whole idea was “personalized” and to celebrate and acknowledge the 50 years.

So c. is actually the abbreviation for century . . . .so “1/2 c.” is half century.

Many of you know y/o is year old. I thought 50 year old TP was funny. I mean, those are my initials, but it could sound like 50 year old toilet paper!

Then the last two . . . just trying to keep it personal. I couldn’t think of anything else. And the FIFTY was like a shout out to the “WHOA!” Whoa Terre is FIFTY!!! How did that happen?

If you have an event coming up where you would like to have candy it is really fun to have personalized M&M’s. It might be better to have them at a party where people don’t need reading glasses to read them though. 🙂
