Blue and White Decor on the Deck
Our deck has gotten spruced up for spring and I’m really looking forward to warmer
days and nights. We’ve definitely been hit with spring fever here, have you
Today I’m sharing our spring deck and ideas for using blue and white on your
porch or deck. I’m joining 24 of my blogging friends to kick off the
Celebrating Home Tour, hosting by my dear friend Leen at Sand Dollar Lane.
If you’re just coming over from Julie at My Wee Abode, welcome! She always has
the best diy and decorating ideas! You can see all of the ideas for decorating
so many areas of your house for spring all week and the sneak peeks are at the
bottom of this post. Be sure to visit everyone throughout the week.
Blue and white has really appealed to me lately so I thought I’d use some of
my favorites out here and give some tips for incorporating it into your porch
or deck decor. Here are just a few ideas.

1. Potted flowers
Nothing says spring like flowers. I love to use them all year, but especially
in the spring. I picked up these stunning blue hydrangeas at Costco last
weekend and am blown away by the beautiful colors. I tucked them inside one of
my vintage white stoneware crocks.
Lucy kitty approves. And she was probably getting ready to taste them at this
point. She was caught in the act, lol.
I couldn’t resist photographing these beauties because the color probably
won’t last as long as I want. It’s a mix of intense blues and violets.
Wizard also had to check them out. He likes to sneak and bite the leaves of my
plants when I’m not looking. It’s a losing battle around here. I’ve tried
sprinkling essential oils around my plants and that doesn’t deter him. Let me
know in the comments if you have any good tips!
2. Blue Mug and Napkins
Sitting out on the deck and sipping coffee, tea, or wine is always so
relaxing. I carried a few of my favorite blue napkins, my little
blue and white caddy, and a Blue Willow coffee mug that was my mother-in-law’s.
3. Blue and White Planters
Something else I got last weekend were these pretty blue and white planters with succulents. They’re fresh and fun and succulents usually don’t die as quickly as other plants at my house. 😉
I added a bay leaf plant in a fun planter, some little green stoneware birds from my shop, and some
vintage brass candle sticks for a bit of sparkle.
4. Blue and White Throw Blankets
I have a bit of a throw blanket addiction and have a few blue ones. I added
these two are lightweight ones our outdoor teak chairs and they went perfectly
with the other items I have out here.
5. Vintage blue bottles
Bottles are great for vases or simple decor. I used some vintage blue bottles as vases and clipped a few fern branches from
the back yard. It’s such a simple way to add some flowers or foliage. I tucked
them inside my vintage-looking wooden tool caddy from my shop.
Here’s one last view, looking out from our living room. I’m working on a big
makeover for that room with new furniture and shades and I’m so excited to
share that later this month. Stay tuned! It’s going to be so pretty!
