You should look in Woods Wisdom on the chapter on ceremonies, it provides
some very specific guidance. You may also check the Advancement Guidlines
for District and Council, it also has guidance on the Eagle Court of Honor.
Having been a Scoutmaster with boys from affluent backgrounds and from
hand-to-mouth backgrounds, it was always the troop (SM/CC and adult leaders)
that laid out a basic ceremony, even to writing a script. We did this
with the SPL, SM, and CC along with the parents/Eagle Scout candidate
during 2-3 meetings. It was always Scouting that was providing the
recognition to the boy, with the parents supporting the boy. Parents
got to send the invititations, but the troop paid for some of the stamps.
