Banquet Decorations

The boys should be involved in making banquet decorations. They should be simple and not time-consuming to make. Use the banquet theme as a guideline for decorations.

Plan in advance who will make what items. There should be coordination between den leaders, den leader coach, and B&G Committee, so that each den will be making generally the same items.

Things boys might make are:

Centerpieces Nutcups Placemats
Name Cards Napkin Rings Corsages
Boutennieres Favors  

Other Decoration Suggestions
Helium Balloons
Pictures of pack events
Projects the Cubs have made
"Old" scouting items from the past
