If you love farmhouse style AND you want to create a relaxing, inviting space on your porch this spring, today’s post is for you! Continue reading to be inspired by 30 spectacular farmhouse spring porches!
My mom used to tell me stories about what it was like growing up in Brooklyn. City life back then is a bit different than it is now, but one thing that stands out to me is how close all of the neighbors were (so close that, my grandparents, who are in their 90s, are still friend with their neighbors from Brooklyn). In the evenings, on the weekends, all the families would hang out on the front stoop and socialize – a real community of neighbors intermixing like family, right from the concrete steps.
When she moved out to Long Island, the inside of the garage became the relaxation spot of choice. Even though a little farther removed from each other, neighbors were still in each other’s faces and business, and I don’t really think any of them minded.
However, as we moved on through the years, relaxing in our yards moved from the front yard to the backyard. More room, more options, more privacy, but less interactions with the neighbors.
I can kind of be something of an introvert by nature, so I’m probably more of a backyard-kind-of-girl, but there is something nostalgic in me that misses the days of the front-yard kibitzing the neighbors. I think the closest we come to that is having inviting, accessible front porches.
With the warm weather, we naturally gravitate toward being outside again, and most of us think backyards. But wouldn’t it be great if we saw our front porches more than just a little nook to decorate, but a place where we could actually spend time with our families, and by happenstance and location, maybe with our neighbors, too.
My house isn’t really set up with a lounging type of porch, but we are moving from NY to Tennessee in the near future, and my hope is that I’ll have a front porch to invite the new neighbors to, and not just live life from the backyard.
I’ve gathered some of the prettiest ideas for farmhouse spring porches. Farmhouse decor in itself is so inviting and warm; doing the porch in farmhouse style practically yells to the neighbors to come on over for a glass of lemonade.
Mostly every item in the roundup comes from another post that has SO MANY MORE beautiful and creative ideas. I encourage you (STRONGLY!) to take a look at the original post if something catches your eye!

1| From Little Farmstead
Everything about this porch is so welcoming and inviting. I love the uniformity of the white flower along with the bursts of colors on the pillows. Be sure to check out this post, where you can see close-ups of this setting from every angle!
2| From Confessions of a Plate Addict
This is another display that focuses on whites to carry off this warm look. The eggs work well for Easter but also for just a classic farmhouse look!
3| From Jenna Sue Design Co.
Galvanized buckets, watering cans, burlap, chalkboard – all fantastic farmhouse elements in one vignette! Be sure to check out this site. The other side of the door is a rustic chair with a wooden planter on top, along with lanterns on the ground. It’s a perfect compliment to the side shown.
4| From Cobblestone Farms
A bench is a perfect accessory to a front porch! There’s no limit as to what you can put on it to design the perfect spring look.
5| From Cottage in the Oaks
There is so much I love about this front porch. It is so classic, yet so many original elements like the boots on the door and the over-sized yardstick. The effect is perfect! And that plant stand with the chalkboard on top? Love.
6| From Fussy Monkey Business
What a clever use for a milk can, right?!? My parents had one, and I wish I knew what happened to it when they sold their house! The red is another way to add some dramatic color to your porch presentation! The tutorial for the table is on the site.
7| From Cottage in the Oaks
Another great display from Cottage in the Oaks. I love the whole look of pallet table and planters. Be sure to check out the post to see the other side of the front door!
8| From Becky’s Farmhouse
How cute is this! If you are lucky enough to score a rustic flower cart, this is the perfect use for it! If not, a rustic bench or table could work just as well. I also love the simple, minimalist look here.
9| From Knick of Time
I love all the different kinds of flower holders in this display. The ladder is a great idea to get your eyes moving up and fill up a bigger space.
That sign, though! And that vintage Coca Cola wagon! This is the perfect, inviting porch spot! Take a look at the inside of her house, too. Super-pretty.
11| From Liz Marie Blog
You can never go wrong with ANY of Liz Marie’s ideas. She always is spot on, down to every detail. I love the bicycle theme on this porch. It’s not something you see every day. As expected, perfectly executed.
12| From The DIY Mommy
Those lilacs totally take me back to my childhood. I honestly smell them when I close my eyes. And a bucket that doubles as a planter and a place to put your house number? Genius. I’m all about multi-functional! Click the link to get the tutorial for the galvanized bucket!
13| From Antigua Madera
I love the country feel of this whole set up. What a great idea to add shelves and really go all-out on a spring display. This one is so beautiful. The rest of this post has that same dreamy feeling to it!
14| From LaurieAnna’s Vintage Home
Another homerun for a vintage look. I love the iron bench mixed in with the weathered wood. Be sure to take a look at this post, too. Her place is amazing. So many other cute ideas.
15| From Once Upon a 1912
This is such a clean, neat take on farmhouse. Clean, crisp lines, with pops of color. The olive bucket planters, wood sign and buffalo check pillow really give it that farmhouse feel.
16| From Country Living
Can’t you just picture yourself sitting here, sipping some lemonade, watching the sun go down? This would be my favorite nightly spot. And, you had me at hydrangeas.
17| From Vibeke Design
This one reminds me of #13 from Antigua Madera. It has that same, soft country look, with the soft blues and purples. And straw hats are a perfect accessory to include.
18| From Little Vintage Nest
This is another really unique set-up with some great farmhouse items. I love this one because it uses items you wouldn’t typically see on porches as decor – an old door, a picket fence, a bicycle. But they all work together seamlessly!
19| From Hoosier Homemade
The galvanized watering cans along with the rainboots and birdhouse give this porch a garden-y feeling. The colors from those flowers – stunning!
20| From Home is Where the Boat Is
This is another one that has a vintage country cottage feel to it. The pillow is the perfect compliment to the rainboot planters, and it all ties together to pull off a vintage floral look.
21| From Katie Drane, Fun Home Things
This one shows that farmhouse decor doesn’t have to be just chippy whites and greys! The bursts of yellow and blue are perfect for spring! A cheery place to relax!
22| From Victoria Fuster
A simple crate painted and turned on its side makes a great stand for flowers. The simple bucket and pitcher add to the peaceful and uncluttered space.
23| From Little Vintage Nest
A rustic, weathered bench is perfect to include for porch decor. The pillows and books create a space that invites someone to sit down and stay awhile. And I love the vintage strainer as a flower basket!
24| From Seeking Lavender Lane
Another porch that uses a big sign that literally invites someone to come and stay awhile! Those rockers tell us to sit back and just call it a day.
25| From A Gathering Place
Adding a few elements around the hydrangea planter, such as lanterns, birch poles and galvanized buckets, really pulls this porch together.
26| From She Holds Dearly
The total effect on this one is amazing! This picture doesn’t do it justice. Just go visit the site and scroll through picture by picture. You won’t be disappointed.
27| From Little Brags
So much to love here, but a few of my favorites? The candle chandelier, the pillow with the coordinates, and that boot! Soak in the details of this one!
28| From Housepitality Designs
I love the gardening theme using this vintage wagon. It’s the perfect set up for flowers, watering cans and garden tools!
29| From Jenna Burger
I’m a fan of anything you can do with wood pallets, and I love using it as a flower pot holder! The flowerpots along with the colorful bench and pillows really brightens up the space. And did you see the sign for the house number? I love it!
30| From Tracy’s Trinkets and Treasures
This porch makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the garden. Is there anything more relaxing than sipping a cup of tea in a garden?!? So serene!
There are a lot of thematic elements through so many of these pictures that it’s not hard to create this look Chances are, you probably have a lot of these items already if you’ve done any farmhouse decorating for fall or Christmas. That is one of the great things about this decor – it easily translates from season to season. Galvanized buckets, terracotta pots, lanterns, wood crates, vintage benches or chairs – all of those items put together create a perfect farmhouse spring porch.
