A Night at the Oscars

Posted July 18, 2011


This just in!  Confections by Shara’s Paperie is excited to announce their participation with the Oscars and Golden Globe Award ceremonies. Our contribution to the 2012 swag bags will be a thrilling event for our small business. For those who aren’t familiar with swag bags, they are goody bags given to the press and to attendees of these major events. Everyone leaves a winner from these ceremonies regardless if they brought home the gold or not.  These celebrity swag bags have been known to treasure up to $100,000 of products!  Wow.

Here is a short list of products that were included in the 2011 celebrity swag bags.

  • A $12,000 Belize getaway at Cayo Espanto – A Private Island
  • A $16,000 all-inclusive getaway to Huvafen Fushi luxury resort in the Maldives
  • Wreaking Balm Tattoo Removal (in case they had a wild night of regretful celebration)
  • A $875 gift certificate to The Brissmor Company-Couture tunics, Italian silk neckwear w/ Swarovski crystals

How crazy is that? We are excited to contribute; however, we won’t quite provide such elaborate, or, shall we say, ridiculous gifts such as those listed. Our focus will be placing products in swag bags for the press. The press must be thanked for their time spent at the ceremonies, too.  If it weren’t for them, how would we have pictures of all the stars red carpet attire in the magazines the very next day? They frantically compete to interview and photograph all the big names, so, why not provide them with some goodies?

Yes, this announcement is coming a bit early considering the Oscars and Golden Globes do not happen until early 2012, but we will be busy preparing come September!
