Just thinking of summer conjures up images of kids running wild around the neighborhood while the adults linger on porches, chit-chatting and playing card games. Okay, that may be a bit old-fashioned — the adults are probably playing some game on their phones, now! But summer should still be about making those friendships with our neighbors, and what better place to create lifelong memories than a welcoming porch?
The quickest way to add character and welcome to your porch, in my opinion, is by painting your door and adding a fun welcome wreath. Add some seating and… then what? Whether your porch is large or small, I have rounded up a dozen ideas to help you make your summer porch guests a bit more welcome. (featured image via Better Homes and Gardens)
