Have I ever mentioned how much I love fresh flowers but don’t have much of a green thumb? It’s the reason why our house is filled with faux flowers. All I have to do is dust them occasionally and give ’em a good shake. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find a way to bring those fake flowers outside. 😉 So I’m feeling pressure to not kill the flowers that I already have. Here goes nothing!
The whole area isn’t large so while I’d love a rocking chair, it’s just not happening here in Michigan. Wondering how I throw together front porch decor in just a few minutes? Follow my 5 Easy Steps to Decorating a Front Porch here…
To keep things simple, I elected to only have one color of flowers this year. The kids planted their own purple flowers a few months ago and they are flourishing. I’m excited that they care for flowers better than I do. 🙂
To avoid buying anything else extra, I re-used my favorite antique milk crates. They are great for just about any season and I love that they are stackable to change up the looks.
Plus, free is pretty amazing too.
Since I only wanted one color of flowers this year I tried to scoop as many white blooming, sun-loving, varieties as possible and plant them in our $20 Cedar Ladder planter. Then I used my favorite $3 farmhouse planters from last year and planted in the leftover flowers.
On the door, I found a simple boxwood wreath and hung it using a holder from Christmas (shhhh…) I like the boxwood because it could look seasonally appropriate for all the seasons… it’s my kind of decorating! 🙂
And of course, my favorite little people are always nearby helping me shop for new flowers or helping me water them!
As always, thank you for stopping by! I am always so thrilled that you take a few minutes to read about our home.
