Easter Screened Porch Spring Tour With Shiplap Tree

If you are looking for porch decorating inspiration, you will see it on today’s Decorating the Screened Porch for Easter tour. It all began with the DIY Shiplap Tree.

We normally store the tree after Christmas, but this year, we left it on the screened porch.

When I pulled out the box of Easter bunnies, they all just hopped right onto the branches of the tree.

Well, almost!! LOL

Y’all, I’ve had the best time decorating the screen porch for Easter this year, and I’m excited to join talented Bloggers for a Best Spring Home Tour hosted by Kelly at The Tattered Pew & Mansa at This Is Simplicite. If you are coming over from Shawna at Willow Bloom Home Blog, I’m so glad you joined me.

Decorating the Screened Porch for Easter

First, I have a good collection of small Easter bunnies!

Instead of spreading them all around the house, I decided to decorate the DIY Shiplap Tree with them.

My husband built this tree our first year we were living at The Ponds, and I’ve used it on the screened porch for Christmas ever since.

In this previous post, I shared all the details on How to Make a Shiplap Tree for yourself.

With no clear plan, I asked my husband to leave it up this year, and now I know why.

In addition to the bunnies, I used Easter eggs and faux stems to fill in the branches. The twinkle lights from Christmas, which were still strung on the tree.

The Coffee Table for Easter

The coffee table my dad built over 60 years ago is beside the shiplap tree.

It’s filled with more Spring & Easter Décor that I have used in different areas of the house in previous years.

Spring Pillow Update

Next, I updated the pillows on the porch for Spring.

I’m so excited to have the gorgeous Spring Pillows from Uniike Pillows. They have such great designs at reasonable prices.

Comfortable Seating

The screened porch is a favorite spot for relaxing at the end of the day, and comfortable seating is a must. The woven outdoor sofa and chairs are filled with comfy cushions, pillows, and throw blankets.

Screened Porch Dining Area For Easter

Y’all know I love styling a table for any season, but Easter is especially fun. I’m constantly changing my table setting during the season.

Easter themed tablescape, vintage icebox, background vintage windows, vintage chairs. Screened in porch Easter theme.

This year, I’m using items I’ve had for a couple of seasons and thrifted items. Nothing new here this year! Two vintage birdhouses rest on milk glass and a crystal cake plate. The bunny salt and pepper shakers are the only items not thrifted.

The DIY funnel light fixture is filled with faux spring blooms to brighten the table area. Cute thrifted bunny napkin rings hold hand crocheted doilies repurposed as napkins, and they rest on fun black and white bunny plates. The woven green place mats were another lucky thrifting find.

If you’d like to see more about my thrifting adventures, join me for THRIFTING WITH THE GALS. This group of vintage-loving friends also share a blog post once a month where we recap our month and share how to use your thrifted finds. See the latest post here.

Serving Areas for Spring

The baker’s rack is a beautiful serving area when I host brunch or dinner on the porch, but it is also fun to style for spring.

A combination of faux tulips, vintage soda bottles, and garland gives it the perfect Spring vibe.

In addition, the vintage ice box holds dinner plates and glassware. It makes a perfect beverage station for entertaining.

Screened Porch Life

This year, we covered our porch with vinyl panels, which has made it so enjoyable so far.

Ending the day with twinkle lights and a candle glow is so relaxing.

Hey, Rachel! You mention the green thrifted "caned" chargers. I just wondered if you'd ever investigated searching out "pre-woven" caned sheets and doing any creating with them (I.e., wrapping around a brass macrame ring to create a charger? My own idea, I was just brainstorming...), or decoupaging? Have you ever done anything like this??? What were your results??? Was it worth the cost of the caned sheets???

My MIL used to actually "re-cane" (I mean, she bought, soaked, and hand-wove... it's an art... Sadly, she passed away before I could learn that skill from her...) and I've seen "caning" sold in sheets so I was just curious... I can imagine natural caned "chargers" being stunning at MANY annual celebrations.

I forwarded your "Tree" to my DH; we have pallets to spare around here. That tree is about to happen, I kid you not! I already made room in the front window!!! lol I cannot wait to have something seasonal to decorate around, other than my foyer (we're under construction of a 1906 Craftsman, so our design elements are limited! lol).

You do a remarkable job! There's always something new that inspires something new. If nothing else, it gets the creative energy flowing again!!! Blessings! ~Chrissie

Chrissie, Thank you for your sweet comments. I've never made anything with caned sheets so I'm not sure if they are budget friendly. I can imagine the placemats would look amazing. You can probably get the cane sheets on Amazaon to get a price. Thanks for sharing.

Dori, I'm so glad you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Loved seeing this again today. It reminded me of wanting to not only make a shiplap tree and decorate it for all seasons but also that just because it's not cold outside doesn't mean I should stop using my candles. Love everything about this tour. Happy Spring Rachel!
