I've recently learned that a prerequisite for being "southern" is to have a charming front porch. At least that's what it seems like if you drive around our community. All of the homes have great curb appeal with stylish seating and just the right amount of garden/landscape. Our HOA social committee has even organized a fall event called "Front Porch Fridays". Each Friday a different house will host the neighborhood on their front porch (host provides the drinks and guests provide a snack or dessert). When I got the sign up email I was excited for the opportunity to meet the rest of the neighborhood. But then I looked in horror at my barren front porch and turned to my husband in dramatic fashion: "We can't host Front Porch Fridays on this porch!"
Well lucky for us Pier1 was having a great end of the season sale. We were able to pick up some cozy seating for a great price. Here are the results...
Where we got it:
Chair Frames, Cushions and Side Table from Pier 1
Outdoor Rug from Target
Accent Pillows from Homegoods
Container Garden/Plants from Lowes
I hope our porch is now worthy of Front Porch Fridays. We'll have to see what our neighbors think ;)
