How to Decorate Your Back Porch for Spring
Spring is almost here and I decided it is time to decorate our back porch. Today I am sharing my back porch ideas for spring.
The weather is starting to warm up, the sun is shining a little brighter, and the birds are chirping louder – it’s getting so close to springtime. One great way to get your backyard ready for spring is to decorate your back porch. I’ve got some great tips for you, so read on to learn more.
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.
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.
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.

Does the lime wash stay forever or.one season? Does it last.but he season?
Mine have lasted a couple of years now Nan!
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!
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!
Beautiful as always! Can’t wait until it warms up so I can decorate our patio!
Thank you 😊
Spring is on its way! I am excited for you to decorate your patio Linda. Happy Friday!
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!
i love everything you do and look for to your daily post. i use a lot of you ideas in my home.

I am so happy to hear that, Gloria! Thank you!
Where did you get the natural fiber rug?
Beautiful! So looking forward to warm enough weather here to move dinners to the back porch…a truly favorite place to be. Thank you, always, for your inspiration.
So exciting! We are almost there
I’m looking on your site for information for the corrugated tin pots … where can I purchase these?
FYI, it’s Spring! We move our clocks AHEAD an hour, not back! 😊
Your porch looks pretty. I’m waiting to be able to plant Violas in NJ.
I did this lime process to small flower pots. It’s fun isn’t it?
