Dressing up your front door for summer is so easy with these gorgeous poppy and fern front door planters!
One of my favorite ways to dress up our front porch is with pretty planter. Of course, with every season they change. Sometimes I plant flowers, sometimes the planters hold mini trees. Heck, sometimes the planters are baskets and not pots! This summer I decided to keep things simple and easy with some gorgeous poppy and fern front door planters!
You may have spotted them last week in my summer home tour. Aren’t they lovely? 🙂
It was so hard for me to get a shot of them without our front porch railing in the way. I’m sure a professional photographer would have no problem! Anyway, I tried my best to get a closer picture of them together flanking the door. 🙂
Ferns have been my go-to for summer decorating lately. One of the main reasons being – I love them but can’t seem to keep them alive IN my home. They only like my outside front porch! So it’s hard for me to pass a summer by without them. 🙂
The Inspiration and How-To
Now I have to admit, my inspiration for these poppy and fern front door planters came from a recent catalog I was looking through. And when I saw these urn fillers it got my mind thinking!
Their design had bright red poppies but that just seemed a tad bit to colorful for me. And since my color theme for the porch this year was navy, I thought a neutral colored poppy might go best. So, I looked around and found some faux white poppy stems to go with my real Boston ferns!
I purchased twelve stems – 6 for each fern. Then I simply inserted them into each live fern – trying to space them evenly throughout the plant. By the way, if you can’t find real ferns, faux ones absolutely would work too! 🙂
My inspiration design placed their arrangement in box planters (which are lovely and maybe next year I’ll go for that look!), but I decided to go with these oversized baskets. And that was pretty much it to creating this easy summer DIY. 🙂
I love how my front door planters turned out! The faux poppy actually looks so real that it got my sister questioning whether or not ferns bloom. Ha ha! Such a simple way to add some lovely summer to the home decor!
