A Bright and Cheery Simple Spring Porch
Welcome to my Bright and Cheery Simple Spring Porch! I hope you find some inspiration to decorate your front porch or entryway for spring.
Today I’ve joined a group of blogger friends, and we are sharing our spring porches with you! Thank you to Krista of Happy Housie for organizing this Seasonal Simplicity series. Make sure to check out all of the pretty porches in the links at the bottom of this post! xo

This year my spring porch is all about colour. Bright, cheery, happy spring colours. After a long winter, this is actually so necessary! And dare I say, that spring has finally arrived? Well, at least for today it has…we all know that we’re going to get at least one more blast of winter before it’s completely done with us. But for now, it’s spring…especially on my porch! So I say, Hello Spring!
I really enjoyed decorating my porch for spring this year. After we painted my door at Christmas, I just knew that I was going to have some fun decorating with it all year round. The green is especially cheery for spring.
With the green door as the starting point, I began gathering colourful accents to go on my spring porch.
I didn’t buy many new things for this space, but when I saw this fun and colourful mat at Michaels, I just knew that I had to have it against my green door.
Then I ‘shopped’ around my home for more accent pieces. As you may already know about me, I like to start by collecting things at home to decorate with. I think sometimes we forget how many pieces we already have that we can use to decorate. It’s nice to buy a few new items to complement everything, but if I can use what I already have, I love that. It’s a great way to breathe new life into decorations.
Then I created a little vignette on my porch…I really love vignettes out here. They’re a great way to display a collection of items to make a porch a nice space to visit or even hang out. I used a barnwood bench as the base for this vignette, then I layered together some birdhouses and nests with my farmhouse window and added a pretty green stained glass art piece that I bought years ago. These are all things I already had and they all match perfectly!
I love this little springy collection.
Now the only thing that was missing was a wreath for the door. You all know of my love of wreaths…it’s just not a welcome without a wreath to greet you! So I made this spring forsythia wreath that I think is absolutely perfect against the green.
I love the way the green makes everything that’s put against it pop…especially yellow.
Is there any more cheery spring colour combination than green and yellow? I don’t think so.
I’m really happy with the way this space turned out…it feels so fresh and cheery out here now and that’s exactly what I was hoping for! Thank you for stopping by to see my spring porch. I hope you leave inspired to decorate your entryway!

So fun and fresh for spring, Jo-Anna! That green is such a springy colour!
This is so perfect for Spring! I love your door mat, it is darling!
Such a happy front porch for spring! Love the pops of pretty green. xoxo
How fun, I love the green door and the doormat is amazing too. I miss having a porch, this looks fabulous.
That barn-wood bench — love. Did you make it?
No I bought it at a local store that sells them…a retired farmer makes them and other things with barnwood from his farm. They’re so nice!
Wow, so many pretty colors! That welcome mat is so fun and cheerful and makes your lovely green door pop out even more. And it goes so well with the rest of the details. Your porch is one of those places where I could spend hours without even realizing how much time has passed. I love your style very much!
