in case you cared, i was in charge of some of the blue and gold banquet cub scout stuff. im only writing about this because it was hard to come up with some boyish crafty decorations. hopefully this helps someone else! this is a great idea if you are looking for one: wanted posters! my sister found the idea somewhere online. the boys thought these were the coolest thing ever to make and to get to take home for their rooms after the banquet. we worked on them a few weeks before the night...so hard to keep the attention span of a group of boys. underneath is the motto and "wanted to be an eagle scout" along with their names. we used 1/2 sheets of poster board. i took their photos mug shot style and then had them printed in sepia to look old west like and then let them go to town with some brown ink pads to distress them some. then hung them down the wall on a rope with clothespins and trimmed out with handkerchiefs to display them during the banquet. easy as pie.
if you want to go all out with the western theme, have the leaders dress in pearls snap western shirts and use handkerchiefs on the table. we were completely ok going the super easy route and just used candy bars re-wrapped in the scout logo & tied to balloons as centerpieces that the boys (and their siblings) got to take. the best part was that everything goes home and you don't have a ton of clean-up
