Front Porch Spring Decorations

Walkway
Good morning! I hope you all had a good weekend. I'd like to share some pictures of my springtime porch. I've got potted geraniums and candle lanterns along the walkway.

Table
Hopefully the vincas and impatiens will bloom soon...pink and white.

Fairy

Chair

Spring wreath
I wrapped ivy around a grapevine wreath, hot glued moss and an egg filled wreath to the bottom and added a bow.

Flowers

Dinner bell
A new addition...an old fashioned style dinner bell! On sale at Hobby Lobby.

Nest
More eggs in a moss filled flower pot. Thank you for looking at my springtime front porch! Have a wonderful start to your week.

I have gotten so many wonderful ideas from this post! I'm completely inspired and now need to see if Michaels carries some of the items I need to complete my own front door decorating (we don't have a porch by the door)!

Kelli,
I love your pretty springtime porch. I too, have been working on
my front porch this past weekend.
Such cute ideas and I LOVE the robin egg blues on many items. Thank you for sharing your home and your creative ideas! Have a blessed day~

Hi Kelli! Your front porch looks so pretty. I have a white wrought iron love seat, table and chair on my front porch. I never know what to do with it. You have given me some great ideas. Thanks! Debbi

P. S. I wish you wouldn't say Hobby Lobby (wink). Just seeing all the wonderful things you get there makes me green with envy. I am going to Nebraska in June and I will for sure go to Hobby Lobby while I am there.
YEA!

Oh this is so inspiring...

Here in the North, we have not been able to decorate as much since it is still quite cold. But, when May hits, things will look different.

Your pictures are so lovely...very welcoming :)

Oh Kelli, everything is looking beautiful as always and I'm just loving your wreath! I have a grapevine wreath that I bought at the thrift shop last week and wasn't sure how I was going to decorate it...now I know:-) I'd love to be able to sit out on your front porch!!! xoxo

KBeau said...

Great ideas. The eggs in that pot look real.

TJ said...

Your front porch is always so beautiful Kelli! It makes me wish we had more of a porch and less of a front step. Thinking of how desolate my step is though, I definitely am going to get some flowers for my pots sometime this week.

TJ said...

Oh and a belly photo is coming soon to my blog. It is amazing how much bigger carrying twins is making me. So I definitely want to document the growth. I just need to find someone to take the pic for me, as hubby isn't a good sport at it.

Your front porch looks a little like mine. I have beds up close like that. I worked out there today. I'll try and share photos soon. I like your wreath. I have a storm door and haven't hung anything on it yet. I might though.

That looks so wonderful. I love all the plants and the wreath is gorgeous !!!!

Heather said...

Your front porch is so welcoming and warm! You are at least a month ahead of our growing season - we are still waiting on the tulips to open up, but it is so cold they are just holding their beauty inside for warmer days to come! This morning there was ice on the birdbath!

Kimberly C. said...

Just beautiful.

You have an amazing knack for pulling it all together. It looks very inviting and welcoming. What a sweet way to welcome spring! Love the little table by the entry with the potted plants and fairy statue. So cute!

HI Kelli!

I love your springtime porch. It's still too early here to put annuals in pots, but I'm itching to get our front porch put together for the spring and summer months. I love your wreath! I may have to steal that idea for our front door!

Blessings,
Lisa

Katie said...

Oh I just love all your egg themed decorations!

Farrah said...

Love that wreath, Kelly! And the dinner bell, too! I think you helped me fall in love with Robin's eggs for spring decor. :-)

Dawn said...

How lovely! You have a beautiful blog and a real eye for putting things together to make something gorgeous. Well done! :-)

Bertha Brickner said...

You can feel the spring season just by looking at your front porch! Because of the plants and various decorations that surround the place, anyone who would see that will feel the seasons had already changed. But one thing that piqued my interest was the wreath you've made with a nest full of eggs, and it is totally imaginative to boot!
