Front Porch Decorating: 5 Minute Fix

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

Have you ever had an idea pop into your head and you just had to get it done? Let me set the scene for you…

  • Doug is outside working on the new raised garden bed
  • Nick is mowing the front yard {he is off a half day from school on Fridays}
  • I have 2 recipes going with Asparagus {one for Hoosier Homemade and one for Pocket Change Gourmet}
  • The kitchen is a disaster
  • Dinner has not been started
  • And…I decide to decorate the Front Porch

So I quickly head outside and let Doug know that I think I should gather up some materials to Decorate the Front Porch…and what do I get? The “are you totally out of your mind” look from him. BUT, then I go ahead to explain…it will only take 5 minutes! And what do I get? The “oh ya right, it’s gonna be more like an hour” kinda look!

But being the wonderful hubby that he is, Doug helped me gather up some materials…

To decorate the Front Porch in 5 Minutes or Less

Let me break it down for you…

  1. Start with a chair, throw on the quilt and add the small ladder
  2. A tall galvanized bucket was filled with tree limbs and fresh lilacs
  3. The Grapevine Wreath was added to the chair
  4. An antique watering can gets filled with ivy cut from the yard
  5. Small terra cotta pots, a ceramic bird and Aqua Mason Jars are added to the ladder
  6. A couple antique lanterns placed next to the chair

And there you have it…Front Porch Decorating in 5 Minutes or Less!!

And then what did I get from Doug…”this really did take only 5 minutes to decorate!”

    I live in a small older home and no porch. What I had my husband make was a birdhouse and I attached it to a small post. Then beside it I have a fax large pot I use for my water garden and my husband had a friend weld a copper fountain and I mounted it with copper wire around the neck of the pipe to the pot;my husband drilled two small holes in the back of the pot and I run the wire through and twisted it tight. So I have running water garden as a person enters our front door. I noticed we have birds in the birdhouse already! You have a very nice web page. thank you for all the fun ideas.
