Hi friends! I think spring may have finally arrived in Denver and I’m itching to

get outside and get my porch, patio and deck spiffed up. 

For this month’s My Five Favorite topic we’re sharing our tips for decorating

our outside areas. I can’t wait to steal some ideas from these talented ladies.

Our friend Kris @ Driven by Decor is up to her eyeballs in her awesome kitchen

 remodel and will be back with us next month. 

Amanda @ Dixie Delights is the cutest little southern mama, with a knack for creating

a charming home, and couldn’t be a more perfect guest host for this month’s topic. 

I’ve always been completely smitten with her fabulous outdoor porch, isn’t it

beyond stunning?!!! 

 Today I’m sharing a few ideas from a garden tour I attended last summer, as

well as some from my home. 

#1 ~ Add a Flag

Super simple quintessential Americana!

#2 ~ Bench

Not just any bench, but the perfect bench with personality that you LOVE!

 You don’t have to sit on it, think of it as art! Did you notice the fun green one

 in the background? 

#3 ~ Oversize Pots

I love the statement of an oversize pot or two of them to define an entrance to 

separate spaces on a patio. Bonus – they’re easier to water to water/fertilize than several 

small pots.    

#4 ~ Potting Bench

Our potting bench is more than a potting bench! It’s been a hardworking buffet table

 or beverage server for years of entertaining.   


#5 ~ Umbrellas

My favorite way to define an intimate seating area and add a big dose of color or

pattern to fit your style. 

Be sure to stop by and check out my friends’ ideas:
