This spring is really special. Not only is it my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary, it is my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary! I am truly amazed and inspired by both their beautiful relationships. We are all getting together for a combined celebration- so I wanted to make sure it was extra special!
Both my grandparents and parents are the kind of people who are hard to get gifts for- they don’t really want things. Spending time together and thinking back through important memories are what makes them happy. That’s why something sentimental is the perfect surprise for them. I thought that customized candies from My M&Ms would be a perfect opportunity for a fun surprise.
Picture this: you walk into your anniversary celebration, filled with silver and gold. You see candy scattered on the table as part of the decoration. And when you sit down at your seat and look at it closely- the candy has your wedding photo on it! Now that is a fun, special, surprise.
I was actually surprised how clear the printing of the photos were. My grandparents didn’t have a professional wedding photo- they just have a few snapshots from a family member. You can clearly see both their faces and I recognize the photo instantly.
I ordered the M&M’s on MyMMs.com in several different forms- I ordered a mix with my parents’ photo, a mix with my grandparents’ photo, extra M&M’s in the theme colors, and little favor packs for everyone.
I used the colored M&M’s in little vintage candy dishes as part of the centerpiece, used the photo M&M’s as table decorations, and the favor packs are little giveaway gifts for everyone to remember the night.
How cute are they, right? The perfect anniversary party favor.
I cannot wait to see my family’s faces when they see these adorable candies! Like I said before, I never know what to get for both these couples! I finally feel like I have something they will enjoy and appreciate. And what’s better than a gift you can eat?
Silver and gold seemed the obvious choice for decorating. Technically 30 and 60 aren’t the “traditional” silver and gold anniversaries, but they still seemed to fit perfectly. I love both colors, and they are classic and elegant. It’s easy to get or make decorations in both colors and they always look wonderful.
The silver and gold M&M’s are very fun. They are not colors you usually see, but I think they make for very cute decor. And instead of confetti, which just goes in the trash, you can enjoy them by eating them!
My grandparents are still so happy together after 60 years. They don’t seem to make sense without each other- they are a perfect team. Everything they do with the other in consideration. They are both wonderful people, and an inspiration to my husband and me many times over.
The same can be said of my parents! Though they are a bit more independent, they complement each other perfectly. They are opposites in many ways, but it just makes sense the way that they even each other out. Their strong communication and constant love and support is something I admire and appreciate.
Making it 30 or 60 years in a marriage is definitely something to celebrate, and I know that My M&M’s will make this celebration one to remember!
