All of the party supplies have a design imprinted on them except for the plastic cups. You don't have to leave the plastic cups plain. You can paint the plastic cups with a design or pattern to jazz them up. Plastic cups are easily painted with supplies you may already have.

Lay three to four sheets of newspaper on a flat surface---countertop, table, desk or other surface.
Wet a soft cloth with warm water from a faucet. Wring out excess water.
Wipe each plastic cup with the damp cloth.
Set up the plastic cups on the newspaper-covered flat surface.
Use a painter's marker (fine or medium point) to paint a design or pattern onto each plastic cup. Wear latex gloves to keep the paint off of your hands. Painter's markers dry quickly.
Use a paintbrush to apply a layer of clear varnish on top of your design or pattern once the painted plastic cups are dry.
Tips and warnings
- To speed up the painting process, use a medium-point painter's marker. For detail designs, use a fine-point painter's marker.
