Summer Front Porch Refresh

Summer is a great time to decorate your front porch with flowers, plants, wreaths for your front door, and cute furniture! At least, that is what I used for my summer front porch refresh! I love the bright colors, the patterns, and ALL the flowers! It is such a nice change from the winter blahs.

Every year I have some fun and try different color schemes. This year I went with pink, green, and black. And, I always like to keep it simple and low maintenance. I don’t have a green thumb, so I want to be careful about how many plants and flowers I commit to taking care of!

I have always been a fan of green and black together. It is actually one of my favorite color combos. And then, add in a pop of pink and you have perfection! Here is a fun fact, apple green and fuchsia were the colors at my wedding. These colors are perfect for summer!

Not only did I choose pink and green for the flowers in the planters, but I also used it in the wreaths for the front doors. My sister-in-law makes wreaths and I told her my vision and she brought it to life. I think they look so good! What do you think?

Here is a closer look at one of the wreaths! Aren’t the different shades of pink so pretty with the green? My SIL did such a great job. I love the cheerfulness these add to the front doors. They are perfect to welcome our guests.

front porch chairs and table

I’ve had the table and chairs for a few years now and they are from Target. The cute black and white pillows came from Walmart this year and I love the pattern. It keeps the look a little more modern. I topped the seating area off with a succulent in a black planter of course. Also, all of the planters I used are plastic and inexpensive.
