It seemed like spring was surely on the way last week.  Now we are expecting snow flurries Saturday morning!  That's Alabama weather for ya!  I (@southernsurroundings) went ahead and spruced up our back patio a bit for warmer days.  Luckily I can bring the few plants I purchased inside.


My favorite place to go for patio decor is Old Time Pottery!  I just loved the style of this seasons pots and planters.

I think this geometric, peach one is my favorite!  I went with neutral colors but varying shapes so that the plants and flowers would stand out.  These are heavy, sturdy pots also.

I love the warmth this wood and wicker planter added to the space! I chose shade plants because our patio is covered.  If you have a covered porch, shamrocks are great.  Last year they lasted from March until August here.  Ferns also do well in the shaded spots.  I really liked the different colors on these other two plants.  They add some warmer tones.

This grey rug also allows for using any color accents you want.  I just love the style.  It really cozied up the area. Old Time Pottery also has a big selection of lanterns. This black wicker one is great for an outside space. Add a faux candle with a timer and you have instant candlelight at night.


I wanted to add in a pop of color and these coral pillows do just that. The garland on the mantle is also from Old Time Pottery.  It has a tropical feel with ferns and flowers.  The flowers also pick up the coral color of the pillows.

Are you ready for Spring where you live?  I hope this gives you some ideas for your outside areas!  Don't forget to stop by Old Time Pottery and check out their great outdoor living decor!
