“I don’t want to name-drop, but Portia de Rossi was there,” DeGeneres joked. Also there? Diddy, Puffy and Puff Daddy.

“And I know some of you are thinking, Wait a minute Ellen, your birthday was two weeks ago,” she added. “Let me correct you. My birthday started two weeks ago.”

DeGeneres also gave everyone a cost-saving tip for throwing parties. “Don’t hire a band. Invite all your musician friends.”

Among the guests who performed—for free, DeGeneres pointed out in each case—were Pharrell Williams, Pink, Alessia Cara and Melissa Etheridge.

“Here’s another tip: Make sure you invite Reese Witherspoon,” she added. “Because now I see why she’s such an amazing producer. She’s the one who, and I won’t say forced, but strongly suggested everyone should perform.”

Waking up the morning after the party, DeGeneres saw a headline that said the world is facing a shortage of tequila. “I don’t want to blame anyone in particular, but I saw someone sitting at the bar drinking all night long, I’ll just give you her first name: Oprah.”

DeGeneres also thanked de Rossi for throwing the party. “You put on the most amazing party,” she said. “It’s just a party I’ll never forget.”
