Lazy Event Planner Throws 'Bags Of Ice'–Themed Party

LOS ANGELES—Lacking the time, energy, or initiative to prepare anything better, Hollywood-based event planner Frankie Haines spent roughly 20 minutes last week organizing a 'Bags of Ice'–themed celebrity birthday bash. "I figure it makes sense: Parties and bags of ice, those are two things that go together," said Haines, describing his inspiration for the hastily created, half-million-dollar soiree, which will feature five massive columns of ice bags stacked throughout the space, ice bags leading up the driveway, and possibly an ice-bag sculpture centerpiece, "if there's time." "There's a pool, so we've got some bags of ice bobbing in there. We even stuffed some bags of ice into some clothes I found lying around and made ice-bag people. Perhaps not my finest work, but certainly good enough for David Hyde Pierce's 52nd birthday." The gala event will be followed immediately by a 'Bags of Water' after-party at the same location.
