The plants around my small front porch are really starting to fill in now. Although small, I love my shady little retreat. While enjoying a quiet morning out there recently, I thought I’d snap a few pictures of my front porch decor to share here.
It’s nothing fancy, most of the stuff out here is from the flea market. But those flea market finds are usually my favorite things of all.
Years ago we added a trellis to the side of the porch for extra privacy. I planted a climbing hydrangea that has really started to fill in nicely. Those are slow growers but totally worth the wait.
I pot this big pot of colorful, beautiful flowers at a small nursery I drive by all the time. I’m usually averse to bold colors, but I fell in love with this combo. And it happened to fit perfectly in my basket.
Sadly, after only a few days I managed to kill this one. But she was beautiful while she lasted. I added the vintage mirror to the trellis last summer. Using a mirror outside is an unexpected accent.
I snapped most of these with my cell phone and honestly, I didn’t clean up or prepare this area for photos so it’s not picture-perfect.
A few days after the brightly colored flowers died I replaced it with a more shade-friendly mix.
The rustic green bucket is one of my favorite flea market finds (see similar here). I like changing that up with the seasons. At Christmas, I used it to display a white pine tree for my porch display. You can see the Christmas porch here and the fall porch decor here.
Near the front door, I have a few more rustic pieces. The terra-cotta bowl-shaped pot is the only thing on the porch that was store-bought other than the furniture. Last year I painted the cement porch floor to look like wood planks and that has held up amazingly well!
I added creeping Jenny into a vintage planter (similar here) and added a lighted orb for a topiary.
Delicate flowers in rustic containers are my favorite combination. It creates such a pretty contrast.
I try to make the most of what I’ve got out here without going overboard. I hope you enjoyed touring my front porch decor!
