The day has finally came! After over 10 long years, my kiddo has been awarded his Eagle Scout Award. I'm not going to lie, there was times I didn't think he would finish but with a little push, he was able to finishing the last few things he needed. I'm very proud of him! Enough of the mommy bragging and onto his party.
I didn't get a lot of pictures because the day went by so fast but I was able to catch the ones below so I could pass on the ideas to other scout parents.
I started planning his party after he finished his Eagle Scout Project (which was building a Chimney Swift Tower for the local bird club). It was right before 4th of July holiday so I was able to pick up a lot of Flag decorations for his theme. There really isn't a lot of Eagle Scout decorations to be found and they ones that are out there is rather pricy.
Food was a little tricky as COVID was still hanging around. I wanted to make stuff so our guests wouldn't have to use the same spoons while they get food. My solution was to make everything all ready portioned to grab and go! We also had pizza as it was easy to grab (not pictured).
What is an Eagle Scout Ceremony without a recognition letter display. To make sure the letters did not get damaged, I slipped them inside zip lock bags. The Dollar Tree had larger gallon bags which came in handy for the larger sized letters. I then cut card stock to make the boarders. I found stickers from the Dollar Tree which I wrote who the letter was from and if they were a Scout in the past.
