My sister and Brian are having a candy bar at their wedding reception that will include green, pink, and orange M&Ms. We found out that to specially order these colors would be $10.00 a pound! My mom found green M&Ms and we have determined that we will need to order the orange M&Ms. With Valentine's day right around the corner there is a special Valentine's day mix out so yesterday my mom and I spent time going through the red, white, and pink M&Ms and picking out all of the pink M&Ms. My mom did find a Valentine mix of M&MS that is all pink but they are different shades of pink but are still very close shades of pink. For example if you are at a wedding reception with low lighting there is no way you would be able to tell that they were different shades of pink. Of course my mom could tell and now she is not sure if she wants to use the shade that is in her words "duller" than the other shades which she finds to be much "prettier". Did I mention that she is very detail oriented? Did I also mention that if I have to sort through all those pink M&Ms to separate the "dull" M&MS from the "pretty colored" M&Ms I will need some extremely good lighting and a good sense of humor!
You can't tell from the picture(again because it is so very hard to tell) but the darker shade of pink is actually two different shades and these are the colors in question. The lighter shade is out!
