Arrow of Light Centerpieces

Janice recently wrote to me with this message:

I need your help! I’ve been assigned to help put together our Arrow of Light ceremony / banquet. I’m at a loss as to what to do for centerpieces. We’ll have over 10 tables and we don’t want to make it look too “blue and gold.” Any ideas that you may have could really help me out a lot!

Sometimes simple centerpieces are the best. For an Arrow of Light themed centerpiece, why not go with arrows and light? One of the nicest AOL centerpieces I saw were some pillar candles with some arrowheads scattered around. The Scouts took the arrowheads home as party favors. You could use something like these or find something less expensive locally:

Set Of 50 Indian Arrowheads – Agate

You could also attach the arrowheads to the pillar candles. Either way, Webelos will appreciate the more “grown up” look of these centerpieces.

    I like the arrowheads! We only have long, rectangle tables where so I’m cautious about using lit candles. Maybe if you had big round tables where a candle in the middle is more out of reach it would be ok.

    You could get those little camping lanterns and cut out “arrow of light” arrows from yellow paper to put on the front and back. Then maybe affix a picture of each scout earning the arrow of light (or mark names on them on the bottom) and let them take their lantern home. (Mark any extras that should be left for the pack or den leader, etc)

      Yes, the ones I saw were at large round tables. You could also use candles in globes, depending on the ages of the group in attendance.

        We’ve used flameless candles. No danger there.

    I’m currently in charge of decorations too. Tradiionally our Tigers make them, this year I’m den leader for tigers and wolves. We’re a small pack with limited resources. Help!!!

    We made fire works out of Pringles containers. Cover them with construction paper and use the cute wire garland with the stars on it. You can use oatmeal containers too. What is the theme? Check out too. That has been helpful for me.

    We made edible fire rings. We took medium sized paper plates, and lined the outside with marshmallows (the new ones are white and tan) these were our rocks, then we took pretzels of different sizes and made fire logs in the middle, next the kids took different colored candy corn and used them as the coals. Every table had a fire ring in the middle. It was easy and they could be snacked on if one wanted.
