What is the difference between embroidering a buttonhole and blanket stitch?

Nothing, they are the same stitch used for different purposes. The buttonhole stitch IS the blanket stitch worked as closely together as possible on either side of the slit made in fabric where the button hole will be.
The blanket stitch usually has space between each stitch and is used as a decorative stitch for attaching quilting appliqués.
