Day 21 of Decorating With Flowers: The Front Porch

 Flowers on the Front Porch

The front porch should be a welcoming place.  It is the first space a guest enters as they approach your door.  So just adding a few plants or flowers here really says “Hello” to this space.

One of the easiest ways to decorate the front porch is with the use of  succulent gardens.  The two photos above are interesting succulent gardens that are displayed my front porch. They are super low maintenance, yet gives great visual impact to this space.

Because the roots of succulent plants are relatively shallow, a bowl or dish can look great. Plus, they look stunning planted alone or as companions.
