Spring Front Porch Decor

Use inexpensive plants and decor items you likely already have, to enhance your front porch decor this Spring!

As is always the case when Spring rolls around, our yard and front porch was disastrous after the long winter! Imagine how excited I was to have an excuse to pretty it up when some of my favorite bloggers asked me to be a part of a Spring Porch Decor Makeover. Thanks to Amy from White Cottage Home & Living for organizing! PS: Scroll to the bottom of this page for more fabulous Spring Porch Decor ideas!

Where was I? Oh yes, April/May equals hiney-kicking around here – it’s birthday season meaning we have five birthdays between the end of April and the beginning of June, including my upcoming birthday – feel free to send gifts! The only we’ve given our front porch since the Fall has been all of us running in and out of the front door zillions of times a day. Instead of a lovely front porch, it was full of dust, pollen, and loads of spiderwebs. #HalloweeninMayAnyone

A front porch nicely decorated for Spring gives me all the smiles. With a bit of effort, even less cash and a broom I had my front porch fresh, clean and Spring-ready in under an hour!

How to Spice up Your Spring Front Porch Decor

First, I got out my trusty broom.  It’s incredible the difference a good cleaning makes! Then it was time for styling and the following changes:

  • Updated the front door porch mat
  • Added colorful, seasonal plants
  • Brought the inside out with colorful pillows and throws
  • Added a few fun accents such as a fun bicycle and a colorful wreath – because.. Spring.

Spring Decor Doormat

A colorful doormat from Target, layered over a green stripe,  sets the tone and color scheme for the front porch decor – not traditional – but who says it has to be? Sadly, the doormat I have isn’t available, but I did find this one and this one that is just as fun!


Choosing Seasonal Plants for Warmer Spring Weather

With minimal decor, plants stand in and add texture, color, and interest. Plants can be expensive, so, I always gravitate to those that are looking a little worse for wear due to underwatering and a significant price cut – you’d be amazed what a little bit of miracle grow can do and it’s worth the effort for 50% off!.

Annuals

I rely pretty heavily on Annuals for color and texture at this time of year. Petunias, violas, and ferns do very well on my shady, dry front porch. I’m a little lazy and don’t like replanting, instead preferring to dress up the planter pots my new green friends come home i.

English ivy, yellow begonias, and pink impatiens make up my Spring Hanging basket. The vine will make another appearance next year, and I’ll likely work it into my fall hanging basket when the time comes.

Spring Porch Decor

I love to shop my home, moving furniture from inside to out and reusing items where I can as the seasons change. Styling in this way saves me a fortune and keeps me from getting bored with my decor – it’s never the same twice! With a covered porch I’m pretty comfortable using inexpensive, indoor furniture for short periods.

SUGGESTED: PLANT STAND UPCYCLE (coming soon)

Although I didn’t purchase anything new for the porch (besides plants), I did add in this newly upcycled plant stand that received some TLC earlier this week! With its new faux marble top and cheery apple green base, it’s a fun addition to the porch and will get lots of use in the years to come. Click here for more details on the plant stand makeover and a link to faux marble painting guide.

Rocker Upcycle

 

I’m all about comfort and love the idea of hanging out on the front porch in either a rocker or the porch swing with a cup of cold lemonade and a good book on a hot, sunny Spring day. These throw cushions are on constant rotation around the house.

Enjoying My New Spring Porch Decor

So, let’s take stock. May is in full swing. My front porch decorations look great. The weather is warm. And, I’m down about a pound of pollen from the front of my house. Not bad for an hours worth of minor effort and cash.

front porch decor accents

With any luck, I’ll be spending at least a few Spring days enjoying the sights, smells and sounds of Spring from the comfort of my front porch. If that doesn’t pan out, seeing my porch as I run in and out of the door is guaranteed to make me happy! How could it not with such fun, colorful, festive front porch decor to come home to?

Easter table decoration ideas run the gamut when it comes to table coverings. In our home, the table covering can be anything that gives texture and color to the table. Here are some things I’ve used in the past:

Today, I’m using a drapery panel, covered in a length of wrapping paper. To add even more color and pattern, I’ve layered three decorative dish towels on top for a unique look.

I went with a fun, eclectic mix for the plate stack, using my usual white stoneware dinner plates, atop a blend of gold and DIY polka dot chargers. Bright-colored butterfly salad plates add a bit of contrast between the layers, while boldly patterned appetizer plates finish off the stack.
