Now that we’ve shared our Holiday Hideaway, we’d love for you to join in the decorating fun for National Decorate Your Home for the Holidays Week! This week people from near and far are going to be decorating their homes and sharing photos on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram (@Prudentjaime & @Prudentjacinda) using #BIGHoliday. The fun begins tonight at the #BIGHoliday Twitter Party at 9pm EST and continues throughout the week with the Selfie Sweepstakes, where one lucky winner will receive a $1000 Big Lots shopping spree!

To help you get started on your holiday decorating we’ve jotted down a few key tips we used for our merry makeover. Our first tip is to create a mood board of inspiration before you go shopping for decorations. This saved us a ton of time and kept us on track when we wanted to just buy everything in sight. You can check out all our recent holiday inspiration on our Christmas Pinterest Board, and check out the other National Decorate Your Home for the Holidays blogger makeovers.
