Southern Living Inspired Porch Planter Reveal

I am excited to share with you my version of The Southern Living Inspired Spring Container Garden I told you about last Friday!

I was hard at work Saturday, breaking my back, creating these lovely planters on my porch, but it was all worth it!

Check it out!

To refresh your memory, I used 1 Kimberly Queen Fern, 1 Hydrangea and 2 Sweet Potato Vine in each urn.

I am loving the combination of the green and bluish lavender!

In the end, I ended up adding two of the sweet potato vine instead of just one per planter like I had originally thought. It was needed to fill in an extra hole on the other side of the hydrangea. I also made  an adjustment from planting in a square container like in my inspiration photo to the taller urn. I like the height of the urn better.

I am so pleased with how they turned out!

I have lots more work to do on the porch, but this is a bright spot to keep me moving!


  1. That looks lovely.. You did a great job

  6. Hi Kathleen, Love your urns and plantings. I like yours better than the inspiration photo ones. I live not far from Senoia, GA and enjoyed the Southern Living Idea House. The house was sold and is now a private residence. I'll have to drive by soon and see how the new owners have decorated the porch.

  7. Beautiful! I keep saying I'm going to plant a hydrangea in an urn but always end of forgetting about it! I love the combination of plants that you used!

  8. Pretty, pretty! And oh, so Southern. :-)

  9. Those lovely planters are certainly a great addition to your front porch. They make the entire place a lot more beautiful. You don’t have to ask for more embellishments because those huge plant holders are already enough to make the place vibrant and uplifting. Seeing place like this really inspires me. Great job, Kathleen!
