8 Rainbow Decor Ideas To Celebrate Pride Month 2016

Often associated with the summer solstice, the month of June doubles as Pride month. This celebration is an amazing opportunity to honor human diversity, embrace love, and embellish your space with rainbow Pride decor. Between the longer days and celebration of equality, how can you not love this time of the year?

Sure, Pride weekend has come and gone in some parts of the country. But it definitely doesn't mean that the fun is over. Heck, it doesn't even need to be June in order for you to get in on the festivities; you can throw a Pride party whenever you feel like it. It's the best way to take part in a personal, small get-together with close friends, family members, and the people they love. Plus, it gives you the chance to bake a deliciously colorful rainbow cake. Just a thought.

And once that celebration is over? It doesn't hurt to re-use the decor to spruce up your own home. Decorative pieces such as garlands and wall art make an awesome addition to your space on any ol' day. You might even be able to bring some of these decor items to your office and celebrate Pride at work every single day.

Happy Pride!

Ribbon and cord come together to create a fun and flirty garland. Etsy seller PeanutButterandBow has the right idea.
