Decorate Your Porch for Spring

Monday, April 25, 2022


If you're one of those lucky people with any kind of porch on their home, and you enjoy spending time there, then don't forget to decorate these areas! Spring is a great reason to decorate and it's a great way to make the place you enjoy spending so much time more enjoyable. Here's some ways to decorate for Spring in your outdoor living areas.

Add a Spring wreath. 
You can put it on your front door, or whatever door leading to your porch.  Make your own or buy one but if you make your own, make sure to add pastel floral colors and things that represent this time of year and the wildlife you might see. 
Add texture. 
Put blankets (if you have an enclosed porch) on the seating areas and not only is it cozier but it's also practical when you're out on a chillier evening and want to get warm.  Add rugs (weather proof of course!) to give some dimension and a change in a solid floor.  
Embrace color.
Use bright beautiful colors for throw pillows or seating cushions, make sure place mats have a spring look, and break out the brightly colored flower pots. 
Add greens.
Of course since it's Spring, you need some fresh greenery so bring some of your houseplants outside to decorate or buy and plant some potted annuals  or herbs.  I love when people have herb gardens on their porch because it's a great use of space but also makes it convenient if you need to grab some fresh greens for a recipe. 
Add art.
Get some junk sculptures from your community through art galleries, festivals, vendor fairs, etc.  These are always cool because they are unique but they also add a really cool look to an outdoor living space.  I once saw a flamingo stature made of bottlecaps and it was really cool and beautifully painted pink so it would be great on someone's porch that likes flamingoes.   

Add entertainment. 
You'll use a space more if you can be entertained in it.  Bring out a bar cart for mixing drinks, add some yard game bins to your porch or patio, or leave some yoga mats nearby for yoga on the porch at your convenience. 

Get creative and embrace the changing seasons, even on the outside parts of your home!
