This is a fun office or organizational party or as a get-together before a meeting starts.
can also be used for charities to host a project that is different to raise
'Reverse the Day' ... have a Friday the 13th BREAKFAST!
Usual breakfast items
Don't forget Lucky Charms cereal!
Food Buffet Display:
Open up ladders and place plywood covered with black paper or plastic tablecovers and placed on the rungs (front to back) to create a shelf. Place paper goods, utensils
and food on the shelves. Depending on number of guests, several ladders may be necessary.

IDEA: Create a Trivia Match Game with the "Cure"
Create small table tents around the food and/or on the tables, each with a different supersition.
Breaking a mirror brings 7 years bad luck
Walking under a ladder is bad luck
