Event bags are always a hit with guests. And while most parties can’t live up to the standard of celebrity gift bags (This year’s Academy Award gift bags included $20,000 worth of merchandise featuring a private dinner party at Morton’s steakhouse and a pair of Beamer Video Phones), us ‘regular people’ can have just as much fun with gifts for our guests. Themed bags are a consistently good idea, and we have just the thing for your upcoming spring soiree.
There are some things about the Academy Awards we all know—someone will show up with a highly talked-about dress; Vanity Fair will host an epic after-party; and at least one speech will make you cry. But what about the behind-the-scenes info? The work that goes into creating arguably the biggest awards show of the year? We rounded up a list of facts you can tell your co-workers while dishing about this year’s winners (and losers).
