Back Porch Summer Decor

Hello and welcome to my back porch! I hope your enjoying your summer! Dale and I are officially on summer break! Yay! We haven’t done any DIY projects lately. If you’ve been following us, you know we’ve worked hard at getting our place together. Our New Year’s resolution for 2019 was to do less projects and enjoy life more. Don’t fear! Will be back soon! πŸ˜‰ Today I wanted to show you my back porch decor. Enjoy!

Summer Table Setting

I gathered some roses and zinnias from my garden to make this beautiful flower arrangement. The reddish pink rose is Cinco De Mayo, as you can see the color stands out! The yellow rose is Julia Child, I love yellow roses!

For this summer tablescape, I placed some fabric I purchased at Wal-Mart, which was pre-cut in their fabric department. Made the perfect table cloth! I think the fern stems adds a nice touch too!

The delicate glass desert goblet’s handed down to me from my grandmother. The silverware & dishware we purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond. The copper coffee cups are from Avon.

I like to collect glass jars to use for flower vases. This jar was an apple juice jar.

Summer Porch

I found some inexpensive greenery at Walmart, to use for my metal baskets.

The above metal baskets are fun to change out seasonally. I usually put faux flowers, for this season I thought I would make a change and use faux greenery instead .

I like to add fun little items for example the yellow bicycle and the metal house. You can see the little boy figurine in my planter bottom right. A couple of my girlfriends came to visit me recently. They loved that I use unexpected pieces that don’t catch your eye right away, but after looking, were surprised to find fun items here and there.

Angel plants I purchased in the spring at Home Depot for $16.99. The plants made simple table center pieces for my daughters rehearsal dinner held here. They have lasted this long and are pretty easy to care for.

Dale made this little bench, perfect for displaying plants and things.

This season I implemented more green plants, few flowers.

Goodwill is perfect for finding little figurines to put in my planters.

Blue Bell anyone? Why not! Makes the perfect plant holder!

I hope you had a great time visiting my back porch!

  1. Beautiful colors so refreshing! I love how you incorporate special pieces from your grandmother on your porch as well as inside your home. Looks like a lovely place for you & Dale to enjoy your summer!


    • Hi Gail! Oh my! Not sure what type of plant this is. I got this plant in the clearance section in a nursery, for .99 I didn’t keep the label. I know I need to get better at keeping my plant labels. πŸ˜‰ Have a great day!
