I had to try this. I had pinned it a while back and I had the perfect occasion to make it for Nicole's graduation party last weekend. It was very easy to make and was the centerpiece of our dessert table. I found purple M & M's at the party store to match the purple ribbon and it tied in with everything else we had that was purple which just happens to be Nicole's favorite color. We couldn't have asked for a nicer day. The weather was perfect. My mom got brave and actually flew from Florida to celebrate with us. We had everyone together and it was wonderful.
