June is Pride month! A global celebration of inclusivity and individuality in the LGBTQ+ community. Just in case you’re throwing little Pride celebration at home, we’ve put together a little round up of our favourite Pride Party Decorations.
What Does The Pride Rainbow Symbolise?
The Pride rainbow (also known as the Rainbow Flag) is a symbol of the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning) community.
The flag was first designed by artist Gilbert Baker in 1978 and has since become widely recognised as a symbol of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
The Pride Rainbow consists of six colours, each with its own symbolism:
- Red represents life.
- Orange represents healing.
- Yellow represents sunlight.
- Green represents nature.
- Blue represents harmony.
- Purple represents spirit.
The colours are meant to represent the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community. And to promote inclusivity and equality for all members of that community.

A Sense of Pride
We hope you love these rainbow themed picks! But Pride is so much more than party decorations and rainbows.
For the billions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning folk across the globe, Pride is a month long celebration of identity and acceptance.
We spoke to one of our favourite interior designers, Matthew Shaw, about his experiences as a gay man; family life with children in a same sex marriage.
