How to Decorate Your Back Porch for Spring

Spring is here and I decided it is time to decorate our back porch. Today I am sharing my back porch ideas for spring.

How to Update Your Back Porch for Spring

Last month the weather wasn’t great and we hardly spent any time on our back porch. But now that warm spring weather is here, I had some fun this week and came up with some wonderful back porch ideas for spring.

How to Update Your Back Porch for Spring

I opened the back door to our porch the other day and I was like, “wow!” The porch looked terrible. It needed cleaning and sweeping and definitely some color. It just didn’t look welcoming and I was hoping to set the table for a family table outside under the porch.

I had some work to do!

This is what our porch looked like after I cleaned it, but before I started adding some spring color. Can you see how it needed some love?

In hindsight, I should have used our leaf blower to blow all of the leaves and cobwebs and bark off the porch. Instead, I cleaned and swept and swept.

I had just bought some potted plants for my hanging pots and I decided to “borrow them” for the back porch. I planted the Begonias in the terra cotta pots that I painted with garden lime last month. Adding color from planted pots is one of many back porch ideas for spring.

Setting a Spring Table on the Back Porch

Setting a bright-colored table is one of my favorite back porch ideas all year long. I love that I can head to my butler’s pantry and find everything I need to set a table. I chose a pink theme to match the flowers. The placemats, copper chargers, pink napkins, and pink water glasses are all from Amazon. All of these are very reasonably priced.

The Cranberry glasses are vintage and I have been collecting Cranberry glass for years. You can learn more in my blog posts titled Collecting Cranberry Glass and My Obsession with Cranberry Glass.

The view of our backyard is wonderful right now as everything is turning green. I wish I could leave this table set out here all spring. And summer.

  1. The porch looks lovely with the pink accents in your table settings . I also love how you created the hanging shelves near the lattice. Is that a heater in the ceiling above the table? What a great idea!

    1. Thank you Marguerite. Yes, those are heaters in the ceiling. Even though we are in Southern California, it gets really cold in the evenings during the fall and winter. Happy Friday to you!

  2. Beautiful as always! Can’t wait until it warms up so I can decorate our patio!
    Thank you 😊

  3. I’ve never been much of a pink person – always seemed too “sweet”….but you are doing such a great job using it in your decor that I’m convinced that I need to use some, too! Thank you for such great, new ideas!!

    I have some linoleum blocks that I bought at an antiques store. Gotta get some of those pillow covers, etc. and try my hand at printing!
