Loving the XL Front Porch Planters

As we are rounding the corner into spring (hopefully!), I am daydreaming about a front porch re-vamp.  Perhaps from my Instagram feed of charming front stoops in London, Boston, and NY, or perhaps from those ridiculous books-known-as-catalogs from Restoration Hardware, I have always wanted simple, yet large-scale planters for our front porch.  Yet, I have never wanted to invest in their typically large-scale price tag.  But, I am determined to find something that will not break the bank.

A few years back, I put together a blog post about boxwoods with some more front porch inspiration...

Below are some inspiration photos of large statement planters and greenery to go along with them! Enjoy and happy soon-to-be spring!

(My Mom found this one 25 inches square, a solid option, and although a bit pricey, isn't AS bad as some out there!)

And speaking of spring...Only 12 more days to the official first day, but who is counting?!
