Turn your party venue into a festive one with an inexpensive craft item -- crepe paper. A few rolls of crepe paper in colours that match your party theme become vivid decorations for your event. Rather than spending the money on expensive linens or centrepieces, add a pop of colour to your tables with crepe paper. These decorations are also disposable, making postparty cleanup a breeze.

Choose two or three colours that match your party decor. Lay strips of crepe paper across the table either horizontally or vertically. Tape the strips together in alternating colours until the homemade tablecloth is big enough for the table. Leave some strips hanging past the table on all sides for an added pop of colour and some additional length.
Edge the sides of the table with one long strip of crepe paper, or tape hanging loops of crepe paper along the table's edges. Choose a solid-coloured tablecloth, whether it's linen or plastic, and drape it over the table before attaching the crepe paper for more decoration.
Paint 6- to 8-inch dowel rods to match your party colour scheme. Tape or glue 6-inch strips of coloured crepe paper to one end of the painted dowel rods to create a colourful streamer. Find a vase, bucket or other container suitable for holding your crepe paper streamers, and fill it with sand. Place the crepe paper rods in them for a festive centrepiece.
Cut 1-inch-wide strips of crepe paper in a variety of colours. Tape or glue enough long strips to the end of the dowel rod to completely obscure the rod and create a pom-pom. Tie a string to the middle of the now-covered dowel rod, and hang the pom-poms from the ceiling above your table. Or tie or tape the other end of the string to the edges of the table to decorate the sides.
