it’s time to dust off our rockers, grab an iced tea and sit a spell. ‘cuz our front porch is officially open for the summer. those april showers bring may flowers. so it’s time to share a few front porch decor ideas for spring. several weeks ago i shared the progress we’ve made in the back yard. if you missed that post, you can read all about it here. mr. style and i are still waiting to hear back from our landscape designer. then it’ll be full speed ahead with plans and actions for our front and back yard design. it’s important to me to utilize every square inch of space inside and out when it comes to your home. there’s nothing better than lounging outside on a lazy saturday afternoon sipping a cold glass of sun tea.
first stop is our local nursery Cofer’s to load up on a few plants. there are three window boxes on our porch just waiting to be spruced up for spring. along with a planter and urn. and our front door needs a spring wreath. so come along with me as we go plant shopping.
there’s bound to be a georgia bulldog spotted even at the nursery.
hydrangeas are one of my all-time favorite plants. there are several planted along the sidewalk to our front door.
these adorable gingham pants are back in action. they were last seen here. patterned pants are a great way to look casual yet polished. and when they are cotton with a little stretch added they are soooo comfortable to wear.
a proper southern porch needs a rocker or two. maybe three since i have three boys.
boxwood ready to be planted for a summer spent on the front porch. the planter is called zoey from Grandin Road.
window box plants: cascade white ivy geranium, coleus, english ivy, zonal geranium tango deep pink.
this wreath just screams spring with the combination of hydrangea and tulips. switching our front door wreath from season to season is an easy way to update the overall look.
my gardening tools are toted back and forth from backyard to front with ease. love this nine-piece set that has all the basics tucked inside pockets. and a pair of waterproof gardening shoes are a must-have. when i’m finished slogging around in the mud i simply spray them down with a water hose.
a boston fern is always selected to hang on our porch for the summer. i love to watch it grow like a weed.
the zoey urn and boxwood dog are from Grandin Road. i warned you i love to shop here for outdoor decor. okay, gang, it’s wednesday. which means we’re halfway through the week. time to put a smile on someone’s face including your own.
