Party Decoration Colours

September is a month of equinoxes; the vernal equinox signals the start of autumn in the northern hemisphere and the spring equinox starts off the warmer months in the southern hemisphere. They take place around the 23rd of the month.

With that in mind here are some party decoration colour ideas based on autumn and spring!
