Hey Gang!  Last month I had the privilege of guest posting for Holly at Bella Nest.  If you haven’t discovered her yet, I hope you will go by and visit.  Holly is just as sweet as they come and she has great style.

She has a regular feature on her blog called Guest the Nest and I was so flattered to get to be a part of it.  I’d like to share that post here with you today.

There’s something about the ‘front porch’ scene that encompasses all of what life should be.   And with every season, I get to decorate it and recreate that picturesque, Hallmark card kind of feel that I love so much.  Let me show you.

Here it is decorated for Christmas.

 After Christmas, everything comes down and the porch looks sparse and barren.  As soon as the weather starts to warm up even the slightest bit, I try to add a little bit of color with a Spring wreath.  This is the  porch in February as I began to transform it from it’s drabby winter look.

And here it is now, refreshed and ready for the Summer months ahead.

A white lantern and the vibrant blue of plumbago brighten up the corner by the front door.

 The pillows were changed out, and greenery and fun coral votive holders were added to the table.

Pink geraniums fill the once empty pots.

Now that it has warmed up outside, I’m really looking forward to spending more time enjoying my front porch.

It was a joy to share my front porch makeover with you today.  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, come sit a spell.

Until next time,
