Check out these 15 Cub Scout Blue and Gold centerpieces for your next banquet. From simple to elaborate, you'll find the perfect one for your pack's event!
Many Cub Scout packs celebrate the birthday of Cub Scouting with a fun party known as the Blue and Gold banquet. They often have a theme with decorations, including Blue and Gold centerpieces.

Recently, I asked my Facebook followers to share pictures of their Blue & Gold decorations. So many people responded that I couldn't include all of their pictures in one post. Over the coming weeks, I'll be sharing more of their ideas.
A huge thank you to everyone who shared their pictures!
I love these centerpieces that Trey Roberts' pack made. They look like they would be easy to make and inexpensive.
You can see how great they looked on the tables.
Trey's pack created 11″ x 17″ activity placemats that had a crossword puzzle, a word search, and tic tac toe grids to keep the Scouts (and their siblings) busy.
If you don't want to create your own, Akela's Council has a couple of free printable placemats you can download.

This is my guy when he was a Tiger! Each member of our den made their own Blue and Gold centerpiece.
I love these cute centerpieces from Faye Oakes' pack. They used the Cricut Cub Scout cartridge to make them.
Alysha McNeil-LeJeune shared these centerpieces. They're festive, and they look easy to make!
Here's another take on the fan centerpieces from Jenkins Kid Farm. They call them “lollies.”
This is from our pack. The Scouts used the boxes to store photos, belt loops, and other memorbilia.
Jenkins Kid Farm also made these photo holder centerpieces for one of their Blue and Gold banquets. The instructions are in this post.

These “trees” make great centerpieces highlighting the points of the Scout Law. You can read how she made them on Rachel Brister's blog.
These centerpieces are perfect for a patriotic theme. Wendy Gay from Pack 172 in Stratford, Connecticut shared them with us.
The Bears in our pack planned a carnival for our Blue and Gold banquet as part of the Grin and Bear It adventure. They set up carnival games for the pack to play. I love this carnival-themed centerpiece that they used.
Amber Grady from Saginaw, Texas shared this centerpiece from Pack 3. I love how the names of the Scouts are included. You could put your den leaders' names on the large paw print.
Beth from All the Quiet Things made this Cub Scout “cake.” It would be perfect to put on a check-in table, a dessert buffet, or the awards table.
She has free templates for the cake slice boxes that you can download. Fill them with candy for the Scouts to take home with them.
The Pony Express District shared this super simple centerpiece. It's made from empty boxes!
The folks at Completely Type A made these table decorations using stands they made for another project.
I don't have a picture, but I love Kathy Peters' decorating idea.
“In January, we pick a theme for our Blue & Gold. Using recyclable materials (think: old boxes, pop bottles, lids, plastic containers), the dens “build” our decorations at the January pack meeting to use at the February Blue & Gold.”
“Ours isn’t pretty, but the Scouts love it! Last year, we had a speaker on robots, so we built robots. This year we had ‘transportation' as the theme, so they built trains, tanks, cars, and rockets!”
I would love to hear about your Blue & Gold centerpieces! Comment below, and tell me about them!
