Howdy partner! I just wanted to take a few minutes to share with your our blue and gold banquet this year! I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm not creative! I'm great at stealing other people's ideas and making them fabulous. A friend of mine did a western theme in her ward, so I stole her idea.
Let's start with the invitations...
I wanted them to look like a "wanted" poster. I looked at several ideas online and combined them to make it work for me. I have photoshop elements and I love it... it's easy to use and inexpensive. I tore the edges and inked them to make them look old and dirty.
Here's a close up... it has the scout oath at the bottom. Thanks for the idea Brandy!
So, here is a picture of the whole back side of the gym. (P.S. I hate the colors of our church)
My son was assigned to bring dessert, so I made a cactus cake... it was super easy. I just baked it in a glass pyrex bowl. Then I frosted it with green frosting... kind of a spiky tip... I can't remember the tip names. Then I stuck spaghetti in it! The "dirt" was crushed cookies.
Our church does not have a stage...weird huh? So, I set up my own stage. My brother just so happened to have a wooden cow (but that's whole long story). I borrowed the cute milk jugs from my friend Brandy. And I just made a stage by hanging bandanas over some twine. For the entertainment, we went through the scout books to find something that was a requirement (or elective) for the boys. The wolves did a skit, the bears made their own instruments and had a band and the webelos did the scout promise in sign language.
