Spring Front Porch

Happy spring, friends! The weather is warming up ever so slowly and the days are feeling much longer thanks to good ol’ daylight saving time. To celebrate the season and since I’ve been itching to get outside, I put together and styled our Spring Front Porch!

Our Spring Front Porch

After all of our Christmas decorations came down, our front porch was looking pretty blah. And since there is no better way to welcome people to your home than a good first impression, it was time to get this area spruced up.

We first had to do some intense pressure washing, thanks to all of the mud our pup drags up here when the ground starts to thaw. Once that was done though, I was able to start gathering the pieces I wanted to use to decorate with.

Spring Front Porch

There is just enough of an area to pull together a small seating arrangement and add a few decorative items around the door. I always add a new small door mat each season and I love the layered look with the bigger striped rug.

When the weather is warmer, we enjoy sitting outside in the mornings and drinking a cup of coffee. This little seating area will be perfect for quietly soaking in the sounds of nature. Well, at least until the kids wake up. *wink*  As a last minute project, I found and painted this old stump to serve as mini table.

I also love to add wreaths to the front door seasonally. This is one I whipped up just this past week to welcome spring! It was super easy to make and only took a few minutes to put together. Plus, the wicker is very similar to the chairs which helps tie things together.

DIY Spring Wreath

Since the weather is still a bit chilly here, outdoor plants are hard to find in stores. I wanted to add a little life to this area, so I incorporated this mini button fern and a few small boxwoods. (The button fern will have to spend its nights inside.) However, there is nothing wrong with some faux plants to get that spring feel. Especially if you live in an area with frigid temps during this time of year!

Have you noticed all of the little bunnies around our porch? I thought they were a fun little find at the Target dollar spot!

It didn’t take much to get this area ready for spring! Now excuse me while I wait inside for warmer temperatures to enjoy it.

    What a fun way to decorate your porch for Spring, Erin! We have those same chairs and I wish all the time our back patio was covered so we could use them around our outdoor dining table. They look so good on your porch. I love the tree stump you painted and those cute little bunnies you found at Target too. Hugs, CoCo

    Your porch is so fresh and inspiring! I love the chairs and that perfect wood table in between. Did you make that? And I love the “hello” on your door. I’ve been wanting to do that and keep forgetting. Hope you get to enjoy your springy porch soon! How cold is it there anyway? Loved hopping with you. ;)
