I had the task of decorating for our Cub Scout Blue and Gold dinner. We didn’t have a specific theme, just blue and gold, which made it pretty easy! I went to Party City and got the disposable plastic table coverings (100 foot roll) and all the paper products.
I used these amazing games as the place mats and had pencils out on the tables also. Thank you Akela’s Council Blog for your hard work!
For centerpieces, I used these wooden stands from a previous project and added vinyl with my Silhouette. I used the 12 Core Values of Cub Scouts and labeled each centerpiece with a different value. I printed off the Cub Scout logo and taped them on the centerpieces with painters tape.
The gold stars on sticks doubled as decorations and trophies for the awards for the cake decorating (all the boys got one). I got the pre-cut stars and a pack of dowels at Joann’s, and had the Hubs cut a 1×1 stick of wood into squares. In one of our den meetings, the boys painted everything yellow and I added the blue vinyl and ribbon. The best part about these is they were about 35 cents each to make. Not bad!
We organized the eating tables in a “U” shape. At the top of the “U” we positioned the flag stands, the food tables, and the cake tables. It looked fabulous and everyone had a clear view of the front. Sorry, this is the best picture I have of the table set up.
