Re-post Eagle Scout Ceremony Decorations

My old site gathered lots of visits from people looking for Eagle Scout Ceremony decorations. Since the old link doesn't work, I'm re-posting it here.

Post from June 07:

I had to feed a crowd of about 50 - so lots of prep time. Mostly buying the items and setting it all up at the Scout building. I did make the vegan "garbage cookies" -(oatmeal/raisin/choc chip/nut/everything cookies!)....the flaxseed "goo" to replace the eggs was, well, goo-ey!

This was the first time I had cooked using carob instead of chocolate chips. For some reason, if the carob chip was at the outside of the cookie - it charred. Everything else was just right. The bottom was not even brown - just nice cookie-color just the way I want it....

So, I just got a sharp knife and trimmed the charred carob chips - and - wal-la - perfectly presentable cookies! These were labeled "VEGAN" and added to the assorted food for the Eagle Ceremony. (As were a separate pot of baked beans - the vegans did not starve!)
Speaking of the Eagle Ceremony, I spent a good part of a day making and organizing the decorations. I just searched for the emblems on the web, cut and pasted into my paint program, duplicated the emblems, and printed them on 24lb paper stock.
I used them along with a hot glue gun and some decorations for July 4th to make the table centerpieces and other trim. I bought the $1 bows, the $1 "balloon weights", $1 frames. I just glued the cut-out emblems on everything! Total cost - about $15 (a Scout is Frugal!)

Here are some links to the emblems: Eagle Scout Badge

Fleur de lis

Eagle Medal

Here was the table at the entrance with the programs....

The tablecloths were all $1 each at the Dollar Store also!

This cake was made by Harris Teeter - they had the Eagle Scout Ribbon as one of their choices. Very nice and one less thing I had to do!
Here is a table set up (mostly to encourage the younger Scouts) showing Robert's trail from a Wolf Cub up thru Eagle. It was fun to put together - lots of old photos and stuff from a box in the attic (started in 1996!)
This is the plaque that is at the Scout building showing all of the Eagle Scouts from the Troop - Robert's name is already engraved - a little hard to see here.
This was the setup at the front of the room for the candle-lighting ceremony. All of the visitors from ND participated in the ceremony - The Man gave the invocation, of course. T read a very nice story about chickens/eagles, and the man-cub read the poem "The Eagle" by Alfred, Lloyd Tennyson. They were a great part of the ceremony and I'm sure Robert will always appreciate it and remember it fondly.
This is Robert's Scoutmaster "roasting" him a bit -
Here is the reading of the Eagle "Charge" -
And here is one of his "mentors".

And then we all ate!!

Enough for now - more tomorrow!


  1. Super Dooper Eagle Ceremony and Celebration - Congratulations - lots of fun was had by all...



  2. Sorry we missed it. Tell Robert we are proud of him, I think he knows it. E
