Front porch decor ( Favorites on the first)

Hi, Everyone!
I hope everybody is having a good week!
Mine has started super busy, so I just put a quick post together, because today, 
I am joining Alison at The Polohouse for her monthly party, Favorites on the First.
This month, her theme is you favorite front door decor.

Although I am getting ready to change mine soon to get it ready for summer
 time, today I am sharing what it looks like now.

If you guys remember, I had it all spruced up for Spring back in March 
after a big outdoor cleaning.

I made new pillows for the bench

I found these flowers and ribbon at Hobby Lobby and they were
 my inspiration for the colors I wanted to use. 
With them, I made a wreath for the front door, which I sprayed
painted first with Krylon satin Almond.

 With that same paint, I painted an old pot and added a plant to the side of the door

I added some left over material from the pillows to the candle on the lantern

I planted some pretty flowers

And just recently, I painted my planters with the same Almond color as the wreath
to give them a fresh look.

 Thank you all for stopping by!
And, thank you Alison for hosting this wonderful party!
Can't wait to see all the porches and entryways!
