Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversations about everything from gluten-free goodies to handmade goodness. Today on the blog, we are chatting about Hathorn Hall’s front porch Easter decor.

This project has taken up nearly all of our free time…okay, all of our free time…so that left me with little to no time to create simple and easy Easter decor for the front porch. I absolutely love Easter because it is all about new life and resurrection, so I had to do something to gussy up the place!

I will keep the evergreens in the flower pots until the weather gets and stays warmer.
