I realized I never posted pictures from our scout Blue and Gold Banquet.
I have no idea why it’s called a Blue and Gold Banquet.
I assumed we should decorate in Blue and Gold, but I I don’t really like Gold.
I don’t think I have work gold jewelry since 2001.
Okay, thats weird. True, but still weird.
Dallan bought me a gold necklace a few years ago. It was a gold chain with a gold heart charm.
Picture me puking.
Now Mr. Wright sticks with cash.
Man, I love that guy.
Anywho, Gold was out so when the cub master suggested an Angry Birds theme I thought brilliant! Everyone loves Angry Birds. And if you don’t know what Angry Birds is then you don’t know what an ipad is, and you have never heard of Etsy, and you don’t understand why Lady Gaga wears clothing made out of raw meat.
Forget that last one. Nobody get’s that.
So here’s what kept me up until the wee hours of the night the evening before the Blue and Gold:
My sister-in-law blew up all the balloons for me. It nearly killed her. The cub master spray painted and build the boxes below. The fumes nearly killed him. Moral of the story? Appreciate your leaders my friends. They are risking their lives to bring you ultimate boy scout entertainment.
If you aren’t familiar with the game here’s how it goes: Throw birds. Kill pigs. As you can see we went for the same concept.
The boys LOVED it. The balloon template is here. The coloring pages on the tables can be found here. Don’t be surprised if I do this whole theme for Matthew’s birthday next month and post about it again.
