Perk up Your Porch : Simple Spring Flower arrangements in baskets


Spring is a great time to spruce up your porch with some pretty containers and plants.

Confession: I am a plant killer…especially container plants.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these baskets and the way they look as planters on my porch.

However, there’s not a convenient hose, and I worry about what all the water will do these baskets over time.

So, I picked up some faux plants and it’s the perfect solution for me.

Maybe you’re better with plants than I am. If so, by all means, go for the real deals!

Spring Planters Step by Step

Here’s a step by step of how I created these 2 basket arrangements to perk up my porch for Spring!

Start with 2 or 3 different sized planters or baskets

These match, but they don’t have to. I will be making 2 different kinds of arrangements that look good next to each other.

Here’s a few baskets I love:

Add a tall “Thriller” plant

In this case, I used a faux cedar in one of the planter baskets.

Add a “Filler”

I used 2 small (faux) hydrangeas.

I picked up all of the smaller plants at IKEA. Can you believe they have so many great faux and real plants there? There are also some similar plants linked above.

Add some “Spillers”

Spillers are plants that hang over the rim of the planter.

I used 4 small spillers in this planter.

Let’s add some spring to the other basket

I wanted a different look in this basket.

Choosing a different arrangement of all one kind of plant with a completely different texture and shape allows these to arrangement to complement each other rather than compete with each other.

I filled this basket with 4 lavender plants.
