Pop Goes the Centerpiece

Looking for a quick, colorful, and cheap decorating idea for your next court of honor? Lynda Litherland was too—until she remembered her popcorn tins.

Lynda’s troop has been selling Trails End popcorn for years, and she has accumulated quite a few popcorn tins, which generally feature Scouting themes and scenes. To decorate for a recent court of honor, she found a way to use these tins as table decorations.

Here’s how: Tie two or three helium-filled balloons together and weight them down with a spoon. Put the spoon down in the popcorn tin, then fill the tin with crumpled tissue paper. Voila! Instant centerpiece.

Lynda says everyone at the court of honor got a kick out of trying to figure out what year each tin came from. And Lynda got a kick out of spending just $3 or so on table decorations.
