Spring Front Porch - Easy Updates to Welcome Your Guests

I recently added a few spring touches to my front porch.

Spring Front Door Decor - Door Hanging with Tulips
This look was originally meant for Easter but I think it works for the whole spring season.  Adding a simple hanging to the front door is a great way to welcome guests.

Potted Plants for Spring
I bought two black urns from Home Depot and filled them with impatiens.  The spot seems to work well for them because they only get direct sunlight late in the day.  If you are looking for similar urns, mine is 15 inches wide by 21 inches high.  

Black Urn on front porch
I have wanted urns for the porch for awhile and I figure I can use them each season. (With my "green" thumb, plants don't last longer than that anyway!)

Impatiens for spring
 The flowers have been blooming like crazy!  I guess I am getting lucky this year!  

Spring Front Porch with Black Urns

With just a few small updates, the porch is ready to welcome guests.  I might replace the door mat too since those get a little beaten up over time.  Either way, these are just a couple easy ways to freshen up the front porch for spring!

If you want to see more outdoor excitement around here,

Black Urns - Mine were from Home Depot but if you can't find any, this black fluted patio urn would be pretty.  It's a couple inches shorter than mine so be sure to measure what you need.
Faux Tulips- Michael's Craft Store but these artificial tulips got great reviews and are inexpensive.
Metal Door Hanging - Michael's Craft store but this farmhouse style hanging planter would be adorable!
Trellis Door Mat - Mine is old also but I might end up replacing it with this door mat.

Have you freshened up your front door
for spring?

I would love for you follow along so you don't miss a post!

  1. Looks wonderful. The tulips look real. I like your urns, too.

  2. Your new urns are perfect with your front door and lamps. Very pretty!

  3. I really love those urns; I too would like a pair and might have to make another stop at Home Depot today! I'm also loving your black front door. I SOOO want to paint mine black but people seem to feel that since my door is solid wood I should avoid it. I'm curious, is your door wood?!?!?!
