Back Porch Ideas for Spring
Last month the weather wasn’t great and we hardly spent any time on our back porch. But now that warmer spring weather is here, I had some fun this week and came up with some wonderful back porch ideas 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 dinner 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?
Look at the difference!
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 use them for the back porch instead. I planted Begonias in the vintage-looking 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.
I had just bought some planted pots for my backyard and I decided to “borrow them” for the back porch. So I planted the Begonias in the terra cotta pots that I painted last month.
I painted these terra cotta pots with Garden Lime and love how I “aged them”! This is such an easy DIY and you can find everything in my blog post titled How to Make Vintage Garden Pots.
I bought these Begonias and Petunias at The Home Depot. Aren’t they wonderful?
It took me about five minutes to plant these in my terra cotta pots. Don’t they look amazing?
I placed the small Petunia plants into my corrugated tin pots. The color is so perfect.

I placed the flowers on the back porch and what an amazing difference! I love the pink accents.
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.
