Welcome - Summer Front Porch



Welcome to our front porch! As you follow the walkway, it is the little details and the healthy plants and flowers that let you know you are welcome.

A large hosta, in full bloom is at the end of the walkway, next to the porch.

Black Eyed Susans are just starting to bloom on the other side of the porch and give a wonderful splash of welcoming color.

A wrought iron table on the porch holds seasonal decor - for the summer, a simple green glass ball, a grapevine wreath with some burlap for texture and some red petunias for a cheery hello.

To complete the welcome, the front door is decorated for the summer with a simple metal container filled with berries. See how I put it together here.

All these touches tell guests that we are happy that they are at our home :-)


Have a great weekend! My blog posts may be sporadic next week - but soon I'll be back to my regular schedule.
