For Boy Scouts, reaching the rank of Eagle Scout is the ultimate achievement. Becoming an Eagle Scout requires a lot of hard work and time on behalf of the scout to earn numerous merit badges and meet requirements in leadership, service, outdoor skills. The purpose of the Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony is to honor the new Eagle Scout and recognize his commitment and effort to achieve the highest rank in Boy Scouts.
There are many details to consider when planning a Court of Honor ceremony including a place and time for the ceremony, the invitations and the guest list, the ceremony itself and of course the reception afterwards. One of the first steps in planning is to decide on the guest list so you can send out invitations.
We’ve come up with a helpful list of people you may want to consider inviting. Generally, the scouts entire troop is invited so this list focuses on people outside of the troop.
- Friends of the scout
- Friends of the family
- People who have helped the scout reach his achievement, especially those involved in the service project.
- Former Cub Scout and Boy Scout troop leaders
- Troop dignitaries
- District and Council dignitaries
- Local dignitaries like the Mayor or members of the city/town council
- Past Eagle Scouts
- High school principal as well as the scouts favorite teachers and coaches
Be sure to check with your scout’s troop leaders as they may also provide you with a list of people to invite.
Once you have your guest list, it’s time to order the invitations. We have a large variety of Eagle Scout Court of Honor invitations to choose from, all of which feature a photo of the Eagle Scout. You should send out the invitations at least 3-4 weeks ahead of time to give your guests plenty of notice. We recommend ordering your cards 1 or 2 weeks before you need them to allow time for proofing the cards and then printing and shipping.
Planning a Eagle Scout Court of Honor is a huge undertaking but well worth the time the effort. I hope this list will be a good starting point for your own guest list.

I’ve been selling my pajama birthday party invitations in the shop for a while. They’ve been a best seller for girls slumber birthday parties. Recently, I had a customer ask for a custom design to make the pj’s invitation work for a pancakes and pajamas party. The colors of the party were teal and yellow so I changed the colors of the pajamas and designed an yummy plate of pancakes topped with a pad of butter and smothered with sweet maple syrup. The redesign turned out perfect! I was so inspired by this invitation that I designed this pancakes and pajamas party inspiration board. Check out my yellow and teal pancakes and pajamas pinterest board for even more inspiration. All vendors and sources are listed below.

Today I’m sharing a fun New Years Eve Block Party with you. This party was styled last year to ring in 2012 by Jennifer at Double the Fun Parties and I designed the printables to go along with it. She went with a turqoise and grey/silver theme and included lots of fun, family friendly activities. Check out the full post over at the Celebrations at Home blog for lots of great decorating ideas, fun snacks, and even activities for all members of the family.
Last year I offered the 2012 banner as a free printable and now I’m making the updated 2013 banner available for free! Happy New Years!
Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the day, relax with friends and family and eat lots of great food.
I’m a huge fan of bokeh. I know you are probably asking yourself what does bokeh mean. Don’t feel bad I had to look up it up too! Well, bokeh is a photography term used to describe blur. Not just any blur but good blur. Blur that makes the photo more pleasing to look at.
Minted has a really neat feature that allows you to create an inspiration board around one of their card designs. As I was looking through their selection I came across a very simple yet classy card that uses bokeh as the main design element. So here’s the inspiration board I created around that card. I love these photos and the blur effect of the holiday lights and the snow.
Feel free to click on the image above to favorite my board or others that you see and be sure to create one of your own.
Well, the website is finally re-open and I’m so excited to have it back! We haven’t been completely closed since the etsy shop was open but there is nothing like having the website up and running again and a real place to call home.
The biggest change is that now you can preview your personalizations online before you purchase. We had this option before on the old website but there was so many limitations with the online preview system that whole lines of products could not be previewed before purchase. Now all the items can be previewed which means less worry and less time waiting for your proof to see how your card or other iten is going to look. This also means less time between your purchase to the time when you have your order in your hands.
For photo cards, I will still continue to make adjustments to your photo after your order is received to make sure it looks it’s best when printed. This includes adjusting the lighting, blemish removal, color adjustment as well as changing from color to black and white or sepia toned. Even though you will see a preview of your card online, you can rest assured that there is still a person looking over your order and making adjustments to the photo to make sure it is perfect.
I’m in the process still of adding lots of items to the website, including the photo cards. This process will take a little tine but if you’ve seen something in the past you want to order or have something in mind I’m happy to work with you to design something special. Also, some items have been added but aren’t linked yet to the preview but those will be fixed soon. You can still purchase them and if you would like to see a proof before they are printed and shipped just let me know when you order.
New items are being added to the website all the time and I have several new product lines coming too so keep checking back. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter or like Bugaboo Announcements on facebook for updates and specials!
Thanks for visiting!
Have you seen our new personalized placemats? I am so excited about them especially the activity placemats. The I Can Print placemat is great for keeping your little ones busy during those last few crazy moments when you are trying to pull dinner together. You can sit them at the table and keep an eye on them while they are busy having fun and learning at the same time. Each letter (big and small) is printed in a dashed font making it easy for your child to trace using a wipeable marker. Your child will learn each letter and practice writing as well! The I Can Print placemat is also personalized with your child’s name so they can learn to spell their entire name and even practice writing it. There is also a couple of empty lines to practice writing new words and even a place for your child to be creative and draw a picture of anything their little minds can imagine. The I Can Write Cursive placemat is perfect for older kids learning to write cursive.
All of our placemats are double sided and laminated with thick plastic making them very durable and easy to clean. In addition to the I Can Print placemat there are other cute and fun designs to choose from. Enjoy!
