Springing up the Front Porch

Look out Folks we're having a Party.  
You know what that means.  
I'm going to have to start from the outside in and make
 sure the house is all Spruced up! 
 I'm hosting a party for the launch 
of Mr. Beaux's new company.  
It'll be about 30-40 of the employees and spouses 
for hors d'oeuvres and desserts.
  I'm excited to meet some of the new employees 
and I'm so proud of all that Mr. Beaux has accomplished 
in such a short time. 
 I think a party is the perfect way 
to Kick Off the new business. 
 Let's start out here on the front porch.  
After all, the first impression is the most important.  
 Here is how it looks now.  
Not bad.  
I have some pansies in the urns and the
 flower boxes on the windowsill. 
 I'm going to leave them for now because our weather is still kind of touchy and besides they are all filled in now. 
 So let's add things that I can bring inside if I need to.
  How about a wreath on the door?  
Let's Do It!
I had the grapevine wreaths that I bought at Michaels when they were on sale.  The greenery was all 50% off so I stocked up on that too.  I wired the pussy willow on first on the top half of the grapevine.
I took the flowers and made a swag
 by wiring them in the middle.  
I wired the swag onto the wreath near the bottom but off to side a little, say at 6:30.
I tied my burlap ribbon from my "Lanterns on the Porch" onto the wreath, added a nest and a little bluebird. 
 I painted these little pots bright green and blue.  You'll see why later on.  

Here's one side,
And the other side.
And both of them together. 
I like the way they turned out.  
Very Springy! 
 More Spring improvements to come!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves
XO Cindy
