Ahh summer, you’re almost here!! I’m excited to be working on our outdoor space this year, it all started with painting our house WHITE! It was a battle with Big Brian because he liked the yellow “just fine” but I eventually won him over and it made such a big difference that even he admits to liking it. I wanted to dress our front porch with pretty flowers and greenery and went to Pottery Barn to scoop up these galvanized containers with The Key. The Key is a new loyalty program where you can earn 3% back in certificate dollars eligible across all WS brands including Pottery Barn, PBKids, PBTeen, West Elm, Mark & Graham, William Sonoma and William Sonoma Home. It’s free to join and Hello, Christmas presents!
So I tend to be terrible at anything having to do with keeping plants and flowers alive but my mom on the other hand has a green thumb, thankfully. I was excited to tackle the front porch project with her because I’m the person who goes to the nursery, decides she likes the look of a flower, buys it even though it recommends full or partial sun and then two weeks later it’s a goner. My mom observed how long the porch got sun so was armed to make a good decision at the nursery with me. We picked out purple Salvia and white lobelia and I’m so happy wth how it turned out! The containers really stand out and make it all come to life. I had Gracie and Brian help us water the plants, anything they can be involved in around the house is helpful, and more fun! How cute does Grace look in that headscarf?!
