Every year at the Teen Choice Awards the stars walk away with an awesome gift bag from Backstage Creatiions.
One of our favorite parts of the TCAs is getting to go backstage to see all the great things the celebs will be walking away with in their gift bag. This year, stars like Gina Rodriguez, Chelsea Kane, Josh Peck, Dove Cameron & Sabrina Carpenter walked away with products from Dearfoams, Jamba Juice, Sabra and Piper among many others. In addition, the celebrities lent their support to various causes, including Dearfoams’ #BeComfortableBeYou partnership with STOMP Out Bullying™.
Some of our favorite items were definitely the Dearfoams slippers and the Piper Icontrol Networks. Dove Cameron was a fan of both products and exclaimed “So can I take my heels off now?!” referring to her cozy new slippers.
The celebrity retreat featured tons of great products which we’ve listed below. We also got the change to take a stroll around the retreat for a first hand look and you can watch the video below!

This year’s Retreat was not just a Gift Suite but also a Giving Suite™. In addition to a $100,000 donation to STOMP Out Bullying™, Dearfoams invited talent to share inspiring words about being comfortable in your own skin as part of a social media campaign for tween/teens (#BeComfortableBeYou).
This year’s Celebrity Retreat™ was created and styled by Josh Johnson, Interior & Event Designs. Josh provided a luxurious and stylish backdrop for celebrity guests to mingle while they peruse the products and lounge within his custom designed vignette. Based both in West Hollywood and Nashville, Josh’s lovable personality earned him the nickname “Sparkle Josh” and the title of Fan Favorite during the second season of HGTV’s Design Star. He also appeared in the Design Star “All Stars” series. Currently, Josh is due to release his signature line of home decor products under the new “Josh Johnson Home” Brand, launching nationwide this year.
