50 Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquet ideas – Choosing your Blue and Gold decorations and centerpieces is easy when you have a theme.
Most Cub Scout packs have a Blue and Gold banquet in February to celebrate Scouting's birthday. It's a great evening of fun for all members of Cub Scout families.
The Blue and Gold banquet does take some planning. There are several excellent planning guides available online. You can find links in this post to several of them.
Your Blue and Gold banquet theme is one of the first decisions that you need to make. An internet search will give you lots of ideas, but to help you out, I decided to compile a list of 50 theme ideas.
This list was compiled from many sources on the internet as well as a couple of my own ideas. Choose your theme, then brainstorm your decorations and activities to match.
Each of these links goes to a source for party supplies for the theme. Even if your Blue and Gold banquet budget doesn't allow for ordering party supplies, check them out anyway. Looking over them may give you some ideas you can use.
