What a fun idea my Son’s Den Leader had when we were coming up with a theme for the Blue and Gold banquet!
PIRATES! Almost every boy loves pirates, right!?
And, you can walk the plank and go on a treasure hunt for games. Well, this is what the crew came up with:
My friend made this amazing cupcake treasure map:
The Wolf Den created all the center pieces and eye patches:
The Bear Den designed a treasure map and invitations:
(Check out the Cricut Life’s A Party Cartridge for easy invitations)
I was in charge of the table and one day got the hair-brained idea that we could actually make a pirate ship about of an 8’ folding table. And, guess what!? We did! Thanks to a father (and mother) of one of the boys who created the mast and sail.
These little pirates were such great helpers (we were there 2 hours early setting up) that we didn’t even make them walk the plank:
And, of course there were awards! Our Committee Chair always had fun ways for the boys to receive their awards.
Riley and his friend received a candy bar for always helping,Neal received 2 silver arrows and the outdoor activity patch and Bryan received the On My Honor Adult Award:
And games galore, the boys shot the “canon”, walked the plank and followed a treasure map:
It was a fabulous Blue and Gold banquet – everyone worked so hard! These ideas are great for a birthday party, too!
