Creating a Sweet Easter Porch
Have you gotten spring fever yet? Well today I am talking all about Creating a Sweet Easter Porch which can carry you into spring!
Here are a few easy tips for creating a sweet Easter porch that can carry you all the way through spring with minimal holiday change out. Let’s face it, nobody wants to buy a single use one trick pony, we all work hard for our money, so why not get as much use out of our decor as we can, right?

This season I decided to go with brighter colors instead of the more traditional pastels that are usually associated with Easter. This will allow the pillow covers to live longer on my front porch, in fact I actually was able to put them out for Saint Patrick’s Day with lime green being one of the focal colors. I decided to keep the the green hedge grove feel moving forward with my faux boxwood trees which actually matched the greenery wreath on my cute little Easter window pane, which I ordered online. While this was not designed as an outdoor door wreath, I liked the idea of something a little different for the door this year. It was a vintage farmhouse style window with a faux boxwood wreath and wooden bunny which is perfectly understated, but I just loved it for the season. Since my porch is covered it is protected from the elements and it should fare relatively well for the season.Just to add a little more Easter, I added a few burlap carrots to the top for the jute hanging rope; which I will remove after Easter and the the sweet bunny window can still live on through the spring without screaming Easter. You can also see I have layered my rugs again this year, as I do rather like this trend to add some visual interest to a basic doormat. Mine seen here is the Wingate Monogrammed Doormat, 30X 48 available from Frontgate. I added a black and white 3×5 buffalo check under rug to match the set of pillows covers I got for the entire front porch this season. You may have also noticed we added a new sitting bench to the porch this year as well. I picked this Eisner Acacia Garden sitting bench up on the President’s Day sale from Wayfair. I love the color, it was super easy to assemble, and it adds more seating to my front porch area facing the street. Plus I added a few of those fun Carrot Patch pillows to give an Easter feel.I added these sweet little daffodil bulbs to my rusted out watering can. While I just can not bare to part with it yet, I like to use it for decorating only, since it leaks horribly when holding water. I also added my shoe box of fresh Rosemary, which I think looks a bit like the carrot stalks growing in the garden, to go with my fun Easter pillows.
Then I added a few ferns back to the plant hooks again for the season, for a little more green to spruce up the porch for a lush spring season. These are all easy things that you can carry forward easy into spring and even into the summer with a little care.
