Simple touches to the Spring Porch
Happy Almost Spring! Though we are moving soon, I had to decorate for at least one more season here. I started with the porch and then in a few weeks, I’ll be sharing some of the interior spaces in our home decorated. I am definitely a little bit more of a less is more during Spring and Summer when it comes to decorating. I don’t love all the clutter after the winter months have come and gone and some flowers and greenery with a touch of decluttering is the way to go for me. Especially this year! We just need to start packing and throwing things away that I decided to only buy a few new items for Spring and reuse a lot of what we already have. I think this is great too because it’s a way to share products that are recycled from past projects, seasons, etc. I’m sure if you’re not a home decor blogger you probably don’t buy as many new items and decor for your home as us bloggers do. Speaking of, not only is this a look at my Spring porch, but we have multiple bloggers on this tour which is hosted by Jennifer, of Town and Country Living. She came up with this tour to not only share our Spring tours but separated by room and with a step by step look. So be sure to see all the other Spring porch decorating below along with the other blogger tours that are sharing this week!

So, as I mentioned I am sharing decor that I am recycling and I only went out and picked up a few new times. Let’s first take a look at how the porch looked before I started adding some Spring touches.
Definitely feeling pretty bare during the winter months. I did move our bench outside and placed it here, but that’s about it!
Step 1: Adding some greenery to the planter box.
Since there are no blooming flowers quite yet around here, I decided to go the faux route. I had made DIY topiaries last year and since I wasn’t planning to use them again this year…I pulled them apart and used the Foam balls with the greenery and placed them side by side in the planter box.
INSTANT GREENERY! I may just do this in the summer months too since I have bad luck keeping things alive.
Step 2: Throw pillows and bunnies
Since I chose to use the bench on the porch instead of our rocking chairs, they needed some pillows to add some color and comfort. I once again used what I had on hand here. The blush linen pillow you’ve seen recycled here from Fall to valentine’s day, and now spring. These are just so pretty and the quality is amazing! I also had the other pillow on hand, so all I did was purchase a bunny (since I really wanted one this year). I may have gone bunny crazy this year if we weren’t moving…but I honestly couldn’t think of another box of decorative items to pack.
Step 3: Add some a Wreath and some faux florals to the milk jug
This helped to bring all the blush together and bring more life to the space. I had planned to buy another wreath but since I’m working on this tight budget and working really hard at not purchasing anything new (super hard for me) I decided to use this wreath that I had hanging on my blanket cabinet.
Step 4: Adding this adorable “hello” decal.
I love having the decal on the window and it just really adds a nice little touch to the door.
I hope this shows you how you can re-use what you already have and recycle some of your decor. I used those branches also for my Valentine’s Day post, and when I bought them I already had in mind that I would be using them again somewhere for Spring. I think they add so much to that little milk jug…which I’ve contemplated getting rid of for a while. Mainly because my kid’s like to use it as a trash can. So, Now I think with some flowers it became useful again to me.
