Front Porch Decor and Plants

#2: Bring on the green

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again! One of my favorite ways to spice up my porch decor is to add some greenery. Plants add a nice pop of color, without clashing against any of your other decor, making it one of my go-to’s.

Don’t have a green thumb? There are plenty of realistic, beautiful fake plants to give you the same effect, with none of the hassle! Check out some of my favorite fake plants from amazon.

We have also added faux plants and topiaries to our website, check them out here! 

Cute, fun, and shipped directly to your door. It doesn’t get any easier!

#3: Coordinate Your Furniture

Patriotic Porch Decor for Summer


Nothing makes you feel more welcome than a cozy morning on the front porch, sipping tea and chatting with friends. You’re all leaned back in your porch chairs, legs propped up on the coffee table you’ve had your eye on for weeks…

 Can’t you just picture it?

 Bring that vision to life by putting stylish, coordinating furniture out on your porch. It encourages togetherness, and you get a gorgeous seating area to house your guests. It’s a win win. 

This is my favorite bench right now, check it out on Amazon! 

#4: Light Up Your Nights

Bring a bit of whimsy to your evenings with candles, lanterns, or some of those adorable fairy lights that blew up on the internet! 

 Lighting up your porch ensures that your guests don’t trip on your fabulous new decor, while incorporating an elegant appeal to your late-night gatherings. My go to lights are these string lights on Amazon! 


#5: Be bold, Add a statement door

These funky, bright doors have officially caught my attention. 

 They add such a nice pop of color that compliments many types of furniture, and just scream stylish! They’re so fun, and such a neat, unique way to brighten up your front porch. Plus, they’re an immediate conversation starter, and are sure to set you apart from the other houses on your street.
