Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one! I’m sharing my spring/summer porch to kick off the weekend. Bring it on! The porch and the weekend. I’m ready.
Remember in the fall when I decided that faux trees were the way to go? Best decision EVER. So I took it one step further this spring with faux flowers too.
Because I’m tricky like that. :)
Don’t get me wrong.. I love real flowers on my front porch this time of year! But I’m limited on what plants will work since this porch gets full shade and every summer my plants die a slow death when we travel. I always think I’ll remember to ask a friend to water my plants while we’re gone and then I always forget to ask a friend to water my plants while we’re gone.
I usually return home from summer travels to dead plants and a sad looking porch.
But not this year!
You’ve all seen these beautiful raspberry peonies in my home. I’ve had them for years and love pulling them out every spring! I placed them in these textured ceramic planters and love the way they instantly brightened my porch. (*Sidenote – The peonies are marked down right now! Also these planters look more white in person than they do on-line.)
I’ve had these beautiful faux white hydrangea stems for years too and bought a few more to have enough to fill my coiled round baskets. I have 7 hydrangea stems in each basket and I could easily fit more, but the leaves on these faux stems are thick and and bushy and I like the way these flowers look a little spaced out!
Beautiful, realistic and ZERO maintenance!
I’m very happy about this new development!
Will I go all faux on my porch from now on?
That I don’t know.
What I do know is that this is one summer my porch will look just as good at the end of our trip as it did at the beginning.
Because.. say it with me..
I’m all sorts of tricky like that.
Enjoy your weekend!
