St. Patrick’s Day Front Porch Ideas

Pillows are the easiest way to add a fresh pop of color and fun to your home--inside and outside.

Hey, y’all! Welcome back to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation about everything from gluten-free goodies to handmade goodness. Today on the blog, we are chatting about an easy way to gussy up your porch for St. Patrick’s Day. I had a much bigger decorating plan for St. Patty’s Day, but the snow and extremely chilly temps kept me from decking Hathorn Hall with green and gold. No need to fear because I bundled up and created simple +  cute holiday fun.

On a quick trip to Walgreen's to pick up diet beverages and a few necessities, I discovered this adorable hat and knew exactly where to put it when I got home.

After a couple of days of complaining about the weather (almost pouting--okay, I was pouting), I decided to spend some time in my art studio. I created this four-leaf clover using leftover wood that I found in the basement + five or so shades of green paint.

Wanting it to be a little cuter, I added polka dots + stitching + a gold burlap bow.

While I was working in my studio, the hubby was working in the basement creating a sign for Hathorn Hall. He repurposed a cabinet door + used the Cricuit to create a stencil for the letters. I think the hubby did a fabulous job *smile* *kiss for the hubby*

A simple pop of color brightens even the dreariest of days *smile*

Even though my big plan did not happen, I am happy with how my St. Patrick's Day front porch decor turned out.

Keeping it simple makes decorating easy and affordable.

I really love the black + white of the "Hathorn Hall" sign. It is simple and classic.

I really love the black + white of the “Hathorn Hall” sign. It is simple and classic + it won’t compete or clash with any holiday/seasonal decorating I do.

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we took a look at Hathorn Hall’s new sign + St. Patty’s Day front porch decor. Keeping my fingers crossed for warmer temps and sunshine!
