As these celebs walked in, they munched on organic delicacies from Eco Caters and even took home their organic chocolates. They had a slice of Hansen cakes, which has been around for seven generations and washed it down with Verve, a new organic energy drink.

They were also introduced to new technology such as the PakSeat, a backpack that turns into a seat, the Mophie Juice Pack, which recharges your iPhone battery so you can use it a lot longer, ShareBuds ear phones, which allows two people to listen to music on an mp3 player simultaneously, and Buzztime passed out their trivia games and game systems.

Even if they don’t take home a Golden Globe, they’ll be able to fill that space on their mantle with a steel sculpture by Jeff Owen. Moms to be can cherish their pregnancy forever by having their bellies plastered at home and then sending it in to Original Belly Works to fiberglass it. Hope Jeans gifted their new handmade dog line, Crystal Ninja gave out gift certificates for celebrities to send in their personalized items to be decorated with Swarovski crystals, Lester Carpet Company customized rugs for the event and gave away 5×8 shag rugs, and Nordic Naturals gifted an assortment of their vitamins to keep celebrities healthy all year round.
