Colorful Porch Makeover | Spring Tablescape + Source List

Hello Sunshine! Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on our colorful porch makeover, you know just how to make a girl smile! If you haven't had a chance to see our Home Depot Patio Style Challenge, you can see it HERE.

I'm sharing some more photos of our colorful porch makeover here today with a complete source list and a spring tablescape idea. I'll share a couple of tutorials I completed for our space in the upcoming weeks.

Our Colorful Covered Porch
With dirty footprints and spills of sweet tea, cake, and watermelon bound to happen I decided it best to forgo a rug. Cleanup of any spills is so much easier this way. For a more uniform look I refinished our cement floor and for a nice pop of color to an otherwise bland space, I painted the door a bright shade of green.

To complete our outdoor dining space, I hung curtains and a chandelier, added pillows, a bench for extra seating, and a few planters filled with interesting plants, cause as you know outdoors and plants go hand in hand!

On a recent trip to Houston for spring break, I kept noticing these strange ferns everywhere. I had never seen one of these before and of course I had to bring one home with me. It's a foxtail fern and its right at home in its blue pot here in Nashville.


Spring Tablescape
One thing I love about planning a party, a get-together with the girls or close friends is the table setting, oh and you can't forget the holidays! Choosing the napkins, chargers, plates, the silverware, tablecloth, I love it all.

You can say I get it from my Grandma. She taught me as a little girl how to set a table and it stuck with me. I never set a table for regular dinner, heck we eat around the TV, but for any occasion I deem special you better believe I'm dressing the table.

My idea of a simple spring tablescape is an eclectic place setting, no need to match, a set of bell jars filled with your favorite drink, mine is sweet tea, a couple of cake stands stacked on top of each other holding sweet, delicious treats, and a glass bowl filled with your favorite flowers. Easy peasy! Right!

I hope you take advantage of the cool spring afternoons to go outside and enjoy your porch or patio. Go ahead and eat outside tonight! See ya soon!

  1. I feel like I really want to use that door color on my front door. It would look pretty with my dark green shutters.
