Front Door Flower Pots – Welcome! Below are the best and most interesting examples of front door and plant ideas you can easily copy to enhance your own front entrance.
To gain a good first impression, start it right at your front door. That is because a pleasing and welcoming entryway reflects your identity as a homeowner.
Remember that guests usually do not make their way through your backyard; they always knock and set foot in your front door!
Hence, as a particular and detail oriented homeowner, you can go ahead and have some decorative add-ons to make your porch much more eye-catching and inviting.
Nowadays, there are a series of ornaments you can place at your front door. For some reason, decorations of flowers and plants can provide a makeover, adding shades of colors on faded walls, covering shattered balustrades, or just simply touching up a low-spirited looking façade into a lively and inviting entry.
Examples of ornamental plants you can use are climbers or vine plants, like honeysuckle and growing Ivy, since these will grow to twine on your balusters and walls.
You can also perk it up with flowering plants like petunias and pansies that bloom in a bush. Pair these with pots and hanging planters for a healthier vegetation and more alluring look.
With all these tips, you can now start impressing guests and passersby and let them stare with amazement.

29 Pretty Flower Pot Design Ideas for Your Front Door
This front entrance and walkway is the epitome of patriotic pride. Glossy red double doors, crisp white trim, and pots of blue hydrangeas form to make a beautiful, all-American palette for the start of summer.
Play the Blues
Got the blues? Embrace spring with this zesty contrast to a beautiful cobalt blue door. Flanking the entrace are satsuma mandarin topiaries stuffed inside sapphire-glazed ceramic pots. Zinnias, lantanas, and cosmos in citrusy hues spill graciously out of the blue pots.
Tradition With a Twist
French doors complement a balanced arrangement of ‘Blue Point’ junipers, ‘Ogon Gold’ Acorus, and creeping Jenny, tucked in concrete footed urns. Additional color in the smaller planterns are courtesy of yellow and crimson Liberty snapdragons, marigolds, crimson dianthus, and more creeping Jenny.
The vibrant red and orange colors of a sunrise and sunset are artfully mimicked in this entryway container combo. Chinese fan palms, scarlet bromeliads, and gold-variegated acuba and ivy are incorporated in complementary earthenware planters.
Visitors will marvel at this arched wood door and surrounding evergreen vines. To match the rounded door, we added large urns planted with sago palms.
Romantic Stair Step Pots
Dress up your stairs and walkway with potted plants and flowers. Here, a trio of colorful containers are filled with ‘Caliente Pink’ geraniums, ‘Surfinia Rose Veined’ petunias, and ‘Techno Heat Light Blue’ lobelias, set against a bright turquoise door for the ultimate welcome.
Green to Envy
It’s not easy being green, but it certainly is captivating! Allow this bold color to greet guests at the front door, along with complementary verdant and seafoam colored flowers and foliage, such as salvia, rosemary, coleus, and kale.
Every container garden should have a showstopping floral and plant display, and it doesn’t get more dramatic than elephant’s ear. Surround the oversize leaves with small, colorful bulbs to brighten concrete urns all summer long.
Peaches and Cream
This coral shade peps up a regal front door, and tall planters heighten the entrance. Wax-leaf ligustrum topiaries, creeping Jenny, and variegated English ivy command attention in this sophisticated, elegant entryway.
Traditional Freestanding Container
Here, we play with shapes and sizes in various pots grouped closely together, but color is the connective thread. Bright pink and yellow zinnias are used for this simple container garden, as well as toned-down purple verbenas and blue calibrachoas.
Perk Up a Porch With Evergreens
Master an appealing container garden with the thrill, fill, and spill method. Evergreen plants are combined with caladiums, impatiens, and a creeping fig for everlasting results.
New Breed of Beautiful
Color, shape, and height imbue this sun-inspired container. ‘Variegated Spreading Salmon’ SunPatiens, foxtail asparagus fern, and ‘Neon’ pothos will complement most exterior spaces.
Tulips, Pansies, Acorus, Heuchera, Ivy and Fern
Spruce up your front entrance with trailing Plentifall pansies, tulips, acorus, heuchera, and variegated ivy in concrete pots.
Three ceramic containers in turquoise shades hold ‘Liberty Classic Yellow’ snapdragon, ‘Bouquet Rose Magic’ dianthus, and ‘Tickled Pink’ veronica. Arrange them by size, working from back to front, to really create a perfectly balanced display.
Fire Up Fall With Color
Signaling the changing of seasons are cool-weather grasses and butterfly-favorite lantanas.
Fall colors and pumpkins are on full display here, where wire urns are filled to the brim with pie pumpkins. A festive pumpkin-and-gourd wreath hangs from the door, while boxwoods and fall vegetables round out the entryway.
Highlight the bounty of autumn by packing your container garden with a variety of fall plants, colors, and textures, such as ‘Lemon Ball’ sedum, purple cabbage, ‘Calypso Orange’ peppers, ‘Cosmic Yellow’ cosmos, and Mexican bush sage. Pumpkins are added here for bonus autumnal flair.
Rustic Freestanding Container
Trash is turned into beautiful treasure with this budget-friendly, galvanized-metal washtub container. Maroon Joseph’s coat, green coleus, and yellow creeping Jenny accents the front porch or entryway.
Built to Last
Variegated yucca shares a space with sedum, kalanchoe, and echeverias. Neutral and textured containers offer a stark contrast to the colorful flowers and subdued, rounded door.
A Winning Combination
Showcase your team spirit with this LSU-themed container garden, which brings out the traditional yellow and purple colors using ‘Red Giant’ mustard, pansies, ajuga, Littletunia petunia, and ‘Red Russian’ kale. Not a fan? Express your team pride with the appropriate variation of flowers and foliage in different colors and sizes.
You can recreate this simple yet stunning container garden at home using galvanized buckets and inexpensive nursery flowers, like daisies, daylilies, and sweet potato vines.
Pink Nature-Inspired Planters
Soft shades of pink geraniums, petunias, and angelonias complement the natural hues of the sweet potato vine and pennisetum. To really add drama to your front entrance, use metal planters in three different sizes and finishes to really show off this multihued trio.
Bring on Spring
Daffodils are perfect for brightening up container gardens and offering an irresistible fragrance. The terra cotta containers range in size and shape, playing up to the easy-to-grow, yellow and orange bulbs of ‘Superbells Dreamsicle’ calibrachoa, ‘Snow Princess’ alyssum, and ‘Sunsatia Lemon’ nemesia.
Pansies, Violas, Panolas, Grass & Ivy
Rotate seasonal plants and flowers into containers to reflect the best of the season. For this selection, we chose orange pansies, violas, Panolas, and grass to greet guests with a warm hello during fall.
Summertime signals tropical plants. No matter where you live, experience the beauty of the tropics on your own front porch in this combo of oversized ‘Maui Gold’ elephant’s ear, orange SunPatiens, and purple iridescent Persian shield.
Magnolia, Spider Plant & Caladiums
Spider plants are best grown in containers and hanging baskets, where their shoots can comfortably hang down. Red ‘Freida Hemple’ caladiums, a spider plant, and a ‘Little Gem’ Southern magnolia fill the large stone pot, while off-white smaller bowls hold a beautiful assortment of caladiums.
Warm and Cheerful Trio
Sitting next to a pale yellow door are heat-tolerant geraniums, calibrachoas, and mecardonias in vivid red, yellow, and purple shades. Whitewashed pots are filled with each, creating a spring-inspired, welcoming exterior.
