There are ways to make your eagle court of honor a special occasion. You can create a special bulletin and invite noted speakers to attend. Here is a photo taken from an eagle court of honor from troop 495:
Note the care in table decorations, the flags, and the honored speaker. You know at a glance that this is a special occasion.
You may want to consider making a slideshow presentation, such as was done by troop 378: slideshow-video.
Inviting the youth and the family to select the speakers and decide the program’s participants can make a difference. Hearing from the parents and the scout for a period of reflection at the end can provide a special moment as a period of thanks and recognition of others along the trail to eagle.
Contact a district or council representative to share a message representing the BSA, and be sure to have a large (panoramic?) group photo after the event — this can be a keepsake. Here is a blog article with additional ideas: eagle court of honor prep.
