Time to roll out the red carpet because awards show season is right around the corner! Watching all of the awards shows has become a yearly event with my girl friends. We love getting together to see who is wearing what and discuss the amazing hair and makeup looks. To add to the awards show party night I have created a DIY Swag Bag as a gift for my guests. It includes everything you need to prepare for the big night and get red carpet ready!

Here is how I created a DIY Red Carpet Ready Swag Bag for my all-star guests!

Pick up some pretty gift bags for the occasion. I think of glitz and glam when it comes to awards shows. I went for a black and white theme with silver and red glittering accents.

Camera Ready Makeup
Nothing says awards shows like a Hollywood glam makeup look! A shimmering eyeshadow palette, mascara, red lipstick, and nail polish complete the red carpet look. There is no need to go out and buy makeup. Just gather up all of those beauty samples and toss them in to a cute makeup pouch.

Tide® Laundry Detergent 100 oz.
Beautiful dresses don't get red carpet ready on their own. Tide® Laundry Detergent will have your clothes looking and smelling fresh and clean before and after the show.

Be prepared with Bounty® Paper Towels 12 Big Roll
When hosting a party night in I can never have enough paper towels on hand. Bounty® Paper Towels 12 Big Roll means never running out and keeping my kitchen and living room spotless. Another use they have? Blotting lipstick! I wrapped individual sheets up with fabric hair ties to make cute little lipstick blotting papers.

Secret Deodorant & Old Spice Deodorant
No one wants to break a sweat on the red carpet. Secret Unscented deodorant is my personal favorite because it doesn't interfere with your perfume choice. For your date, Old Spice Swagger smells amazing!

Who doesn't love chocolate? I included a bacon chocolate ganache bar for the foodies and some traditional truffles for the less adventurous.

Phone Cases
If you know what model of phone your guests have a phone case makes a great addition. I chose black and white patterned ones to fit the theme.

Glam Jewels
Add a piece of jewelry in for glitz and sparkle. It doesn't need to be expensive, just a little something sparkly!

For the After-Party
A little R&R at the end of an exciting nail-biting night is well-deserved. I placed a bath bomb in a wine glass and tossed in some face masks, body loofah, and hand sanitizer.

There we have it! A glam swag bag packed with awesome products from P&G that your friends are sure to love on the big night! Do you do anything special during awards show season? What's your favorite one to watch? Let me know!
