We are lucky to have a small front porch to decorate each season. Even though I dream of a large front porch with rockers, I do have enough space for a small end table and two chairs, so I enjoy it. It’s a great place to sit when I’m waiting for the school bus or the kids are playing out on the driveway.
We were given a set of wicker furniture several years ago and the two chairs fit perfectly flanking the door. The settee in the set I added to the back yard and used in a different location.
All it took to get my porch up and running again this spring was a good sweep, a couple of new pillows and flowers. Don’t flowers make all the difference? I always try to choose a color palette to stick with when I purchase my outdoor flowers. This year, I chose orange, red, and yellow.
Here is how it looks today.
To freshen up my wreath, I added a chalkboard with the word welcome on it. It adds a touch of black which ties into the wicker chairs and house shutters.
What do you do to refresh your porch or outside areas each spring?
