Looking for three simple ideas for a welcoming midsummer front porch? I made a few quick changes to mine to finish out the summer season.
Summer is definitely in full swing here in San Diego. The front porch is going to be the first place anyone that comes to my home will know that everyone is welcome here.
The first half of summer my front porch was decked out for the Fourth of July. You can find the inspiration for my Fourth of July front porch here. But now that that festive holiday is over, I took down the banners and flags and plan to keep my porch decor simple for the rest of the summer.
A lot of the items I used for my midsummer front porch were also on my early summer porch (and 4th of July porch) so it was a pretty quick switch up after the 4th ;).
I’ve got some great tips for you on how to make your front porch welcoming as well so read on!
I am joining a few of my blogging friends who are also sharing their front porch ideas. Be sure to scroll to the bottom for more inspiration ;).
If you are coming here from Kim at Cottage in the Mitten – hi and welcome! I hope you enjoyed her beautiful small cottage front porch ideas!

Simple Ideas for A Welcoming Midsummer Front Porch
A Dried Flower Wreath
Last summer my husband helped me organize my seasonal wreaths. And they desperately needed it. I just had them in a stack above a refrigerator in our garage. Now they are all hanging on hooks in our third car garage :).
I have dried flower wreaths in a few places in my home. Including my summer front door ;).
A Summer Doormat
Adding a cheerful doormat is such a fun summery way to welcome your guests to your home. There are many summertime options for this space too!
I found this sunny days doormat back in the spring but decided to not take it out until after the 4th of July so that my midsummer front porch would have a cheery new addition ;).
Every season I love the look of a doormat layered over a 3×5 rug. And since blue is my favorite color, a blue rug is the perfect color for summer.
Daisies and hydrangeas are a summertime favorite. Truth be told, I cannot for the life of me keep real flowers or plants alive unless they have an automatic sprinkler system on them 😂.
Lucky for me, faux flowers, plants and trees have come a LONG way in the last five years ;).
The round welcome sign above is a reversible wooden letter board too.
Thank you for joining me on the front porch today. I hope this post is inspiring to you as you create a welcoming midsummer front porch of your own! Hopefully you will have plenty more summer days enjoying your front porch as I hope to do too :).
