Hi Friends, How are you today? I’m great and today I’m joining my friends for a special Summer tour — the Welcome Home Summer Tour with Balsam Hill.
I was very excited when Robin at All Things Heart and Home asked if I wanted to join this summer tour and how fun to be able to choose something fabulous from Balsam Hill. When you think of them, many people think of Christmas Trees and Wreaths but they have so much more than that.
So I was so thrilled to be able to choose these Tuscan Urns in Antique Black for our porch.
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE them!!
Don’t they look like they are aged and weathered?
When you plant in an Urn it’s great to plant three types and use some high low and I love some that cascade too.
We’re in Cali and it sort of sprinkled today so there wasn’t the bright sunny weather we usually have.
I always have to have a little pink too. What will be nice is at the holidays I can add some great topiaries or mini Christmas Trees with twinkly lights too.
This is how they look when I started. They’re quite deep and have a drainage hole and I added a big rock in the bottom before I added soil.
I used new potting soil and bought our flowers at our local Armstrong’s Nursery. They have a rewards program and I got an email for 30% off which was great.
We also have a side porch that is off our Dining Room and down the side of our house and driveway so I like to decorate here too. I recently made this Patriotic Door Hanger you can see here.
If you love Summer decorating you might enjoy our Summer Mantel too.
Tomorrow my daughter graduates high school and Saturday we’re having a party for her on our patio so I’ll be sharing what I do back here to decorate so come on back. Last summer we had a 50th Luau Birthday Party for my hubs so it’s going to be similar to that.
Now please go on and visit my friends and see what kind of fabulous items they chose too update their summer décor. I have been blown away at all the creativity this week.

I’m Linking up to From My Front Porch To Yours, Katherine’s Corner and Two Purple Couches today so if you have a moment please go on over and see all the beautiful ideas, crafts, diy, furniture makeovers and recipes.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day, Lisa
