Make the transition from winter into spring with this cozy Farmhouse Spring Porch, and some adorable spring porch decor!
As soon as March hits, I start gearing up for spring, and even summer! Yes, there is still snow on the ground here, and usually comes and goes until the end of April–sometimes even until the beginning of May. But I can always start welcoming spring inside my home…and a little outside too.

Spring into spring with a simple farmhouse porch!
My porch is the perfect place to add a little spring, even when the temperatures aren’t quite up where I’d like them to be. It looks so cute, plus, I can wrap up in a blanket and sit outside and enjoy the view. I’ve even started hearing the birds chirping, and in about a month from now, the first buds on the trees will start to pop out.
Once spring hits, summer comes so quickly, and I like to start getting ready for all the time we like to spend outside. Spring is such a great time to start looking for patio and out outside furniture, and I found some of the cutest things that I can wait to share with you! You don’t need a lot to create a beautiful space, and just a couple of things will make a big difference.
Farmhouse spring porch decor…
I adore this white wicker glider. I think it’s so cute, and the navy pillows and cushions are perfect for spring going into summer. Anything crisp and white is my favorite!! I love that it’s not just a bench, but a glider as well, because rocking on a front porch is one of the best things ever.
I also found the most adorable pillows ever! They’re reversible, with two of my favorite patterns…a buffalo check on one side, and a plaid on the other side. At 20 x 20 inches, they’re a generous size…and can you believe they’re less than $13? I can’t believe what a steal that is! I snagged the navy, red (can’t wait for the 4th of July and summer decor!), and the black. But I think I really want the gray too. You just can’t find a pillow like that, at that price, and size.
This cute mosiac tile top table pairs perfectly with the glider, and I can never resist a pitcher of flowers! I can start finding fresh tulips here around mid-January, and they’re a weekly purchase for me. I just love the pop of color they add!
And one touch I can never resist…hanging string lights along the porch. I absolutely LOVE how they look, both at night and during the day. I like to put them up in the spring, and leave them up through the summer and fall. If we don’t put Christmas lights up, sometimes they’ll even stay up through the winter. These are made with heavy duty wire, so they can withstand the outdoors. The Edison lightbulbs give it that farmhouse vibe, and they just look so cute!
How to Hang Outdoor String Lights on Your Porch
It’s not hard to hang them up, and I found the perfect hooks to do the job quickly and easily. They last a long time as well–I put these up when we first moved into our house a couple of years ago, and they’re still going strong. We have harsh winters, and humid summers, and still I haven’t had to replace them. I’ve hung lights, banners, and other things from them, and they work really well.
They’re the small wire Command Hooks, and we put them up every few feet along the back side of the top of the porch.
You’ll see in the picture above that I didn’t need to use every hook that was up there. These lights are spaced a little differently than others I’ve used in the past, but the beauty of this method is that it doesn’t matter! You can’t see the hooks from the front of the house, and when I do need the hooks closer together, they’re already there.
To keep the light bulbs safe, we didn’t screw them on until we had already hung the light strands up. We avoided any lights being broken if we had accidentally dropped the wire while putting them up.
We have outlets on our porch, which works really well, but depending on the length of the strands, sometimes we need to add an extension cord. I needed a couple of sets to go the entire length of our porch, plus I bought some for the DIY posts on our back patio!
I just love how it turned out, and I’m so looking forward to spending time on our front porch!
