Pepperoni pizza with cheddar cheese and olives added
to create the face of a clock showing the time of
(of course) 11:11. Yum!
"1" FoodsOther food that resembles a "1" - pretzel sticks, licorice, sour candy straws. Chocolate cupcakes...OK, no "1" shape there, but a party has to have some chocolate. The sprinkles on top looked like little "1s" - use your imagination.
People played UNO Attack - theme game. Friends brought the DVD...
Perfect movie for the theme, but we did not get a chance to view during the party.
The time came! 11:11 on 11-11-11!
I'd moved a digital clock to the mantle to mark the moment. I also stuck some #1 birthday candles in votive holders filled with sand. I lit the candles at the moment of celebration. Got to get creative in these non-holiday celebrations!
And so it goes. We celebrated an event that happens once every one hundred years. We enjoyed good company and tasty food. With friends and food, any day is a good day. Just one more thing. Attire for the 11-11-11 event. What else would one wear?
A great organization!
