Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day? This new year is starting out fast! Time to gather your red and pink hearts and decorate for Valentine’s. Of course decorating the inside of your house is fun, but don’t overlook your front porch or patio – such a nice way to welcome visitors.
Here’s a quick round-up of some clever ideas for decorating your front porch, patio, or entry way for Valentine’s Day.
Vintage silverplated trays that hold tea cups and saucers, planters and figurines is a sure way to deck out your front porch. Sprinkle the tray with red heart shaped buttons or baubles or even flower petals for a fun look. As a bonus look, spread a vintage quilt made of red fabric over a bench or rocking chair on your porch for a cozy, welcoming look.
Vintage Picture Frames
Turn an ornate vintage picture frame into decor for your front door. Paint the frame in white, pink, or red. Tie a ribbon around the top of the frame to hang it on your front door, then add a heart shaped floral display piece inside the frame. Sweet!
Perch a vintage lantern on top a tree stump near your front door – it’s sure to draw attention. Spend some time to carve a heart into the stump to make it extra special!
Vintage Wine Rack
Paint a vintage wine rack in glossy red, then hang paper hearts within each opening. Set the wine rack on a table on your porch or even on your front steps. Add fresh cut or silk flowers for a special display.
Vintage Chair and Side Table
Just think of all the possibilities for decorating when you start with a vintage chair and side table! Place the chair and table near your front door, drape a red vintage blanket over the chair then place a planter or pitcher filled with silk flowers on the chair. Paint an old side table white then top it with vintage planters or vases filled with paper hearts. Be creative!
