CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Spring PorchI am so excited! Spring is officially here and we have the beautiful weather to prove it here in the South! Sooo…it’s time to spruce up the front porch and add some spring to welcome my guests! I am also excited to join the gang at All Things Home and help to co-host the Swing into Spring Linky Party for Porches and Wreaths along with Barb at The Everyday Home and Christy at Our Southern Home. So be sure to add your spring outdoor décor at the end of this post and check out all of the fabulous spring inspiration!

I have a small porch so I have to keep the décor simple, which really suits me since I am using the same farmhouse theme that I enjoyed at Christmas! (You can get a peek at my farmhouse Christmas décor by clicking here.) I just wanted burlap, simple pops of white and lots of galvanized touches.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Spring Porch I used a burlap bag as an Easter basket filled with faux grass and simple white eggs. My favorite little bunny is standing guard! In the background…the sap buckets that I found at the Country Living Fair back in the fall are filled with white faux tulips.

Walmart Dyeable White Eggs And just in case you are wondering whether or not I raided my fridge for the eggs, here’s my secret…white decorating eggs from Walmart at $1.97 for a dozen. Aren’t they realistic?

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Spring Porch On the opposite side of the porch is another sap bucket filled with white tulips and a basket of more of those faux eggs! And behind them you can see my boxwood nestled in a galvanized olive bucket and tied with a burlap bow, echoing the bucket on the other side of the porch.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Finding Farmhouse Style at WalmartYou may remember that I shared this secret with you back in the fall…olive buckets from Walmart for under $10! Whaaaat? Yes…it’s true! I have enjoyed mine so much and you can’t beat the price compared to those high-priced ones from the flea market or antique shops! You can get all the details here. (Be persistent…they are frequently out of stock, but if you check back regularly, you can find them.)

On the door, you will find my Pottery Barn inspired burlap bunny banner. Its simple, rustic look helps to add to the farmhouse theme. There is a complete tutorial here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Spring PorchSo there you have it…my farmhouse porch for spring! I am enjoying this simple, rustic look!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Burlap for SpringAnd…my porch is not the only place where I am using burlap this spring! Here are a few more ideas…
