Long time no see-Blue and Gold Banquet Surviving Lightning Island
I haven’t posted in awhile and I miss it so! Something just had to give and it was my little blog that got the short end. My mom has a brain tumor and has been needing a lot more help in fact she is staying in the castle with us now. Prince Charming is such a trooper, I know it isn’t a ton of fun having your mother in law staying with you but he has never said a peep and is my rock!
I am posting today because I have had two different people asking for help with their Blue and Gold Banquet which they are using a survivor theme. Well wouldn’t you know guess what I did last year and I never blogged about it. I have to say it was pretty darn amazing and this is the easiest way to share!
The blue and gold banquet is a time to celebrate the boys that are moving on to Boy Scouts. This was one of the best ones I have done. I decided to use Survivor as our theme. The webelos were called the Lightning patrol hence the lightning island.
This was the logo I used for the invitations, signs, banners and tickets.
Poor leader didn’t survive, ha! I used our Halloween décor and camping equipment to set the scene.
These tiki torches were so cute, one of the moms in our den put them together using tea lights and cellophane.
These were our table décor and party favors. These are rolls of Lifesavers a perfect favor when you are trying to survive!
Our bridge that the boys cross when they move on to boy scouts got a makeover too!
Each table was a tribe, a few empty bottles and sand were perfect for centerpieces.
We gave each table a scrap of fabric to signify what tribe each person was with.
In order to survive and stay on the island through out the night we had challenges. When your tribe won you tied your team color on your flag that we had around the stage. This one was they had to release an idol that was frozen in a block of ice without breaking it.
We had one member of each team come up and play giant jenga. This was the test run at the castle.
This was one of my favorite parts! Everyone had to eat a “worm” in order to secure their plates and silverware for the feast. These are made from jello and were so gross they move just like worms!
Dinner is served! The boys went crazy over this!!! Our meal was a roast hog, Texas ranch potato salad, a green salad, rolls and baked beans.
My super awesome nephew helping serve.
You can’t have a cubscout event without silly skits.
Our fearless leaders!
It was a really, really fun night. Everyone had a blast, the food was amazing, the games were so fun and this is sure to be a memory that will stay with these boys.
