let me start out by saying *YAY*  for the new PARTY PLANNING FORUM!

I am teaching a teen girls VBS class, and I want to decorate the room ULTRA cool, enchanting, awesome, colorful, girly.  Colors are open but I am picturing  pink, yellow, orange.
Here's what I am picturing in my head:
Using some of the ideas from moonunit426's super colorful canopied dorm room as far as draping fabric from ceiling:

I really like these colorful big tissue paper flower garlands:

Any other ideas or suggestions for CHEAP & COLORFUL decor?

I second the yay for the party planning forum!

Sounds like you already have some great ideas!! I have always been a fan of paper snowflakes, they would be cool cut out of bright paper and hung around the room, from the ceiling, etc. Cheap and easy!!

Also, it sounds like you're going to be buying a bunch of fabric. I would reccomend either buying burlap (it comes in pretty colors, too!) b/c it is super cheap OR going to your local cheapo home stuff store, they usually sell sheets for super cheap and can buy just flat sheets for waaaaaay less than you'd pay for just the fabric at the fabric store!

Also, if you're doing centerpieces or flowers, I LOVE bright colored carnations all bunched together to just look like one mass of flowers.

Have fun!

thanks, the sheets idea is great for fabric.  I was hoping I could find some cool drapes or sheets at the local goodwill or thrift stores to use for fabric, but that's hit or miss.
Maybe instead of paper snowflakes I could do paper flower shapes?  Never tried it b/f.

Thanks for your input  Grin

Not sure if you're looking for tablecloth ideas here, but I thought I'd include this in case you were. 

For my wedding I went to a wallpaper outlet and dug through the old, discontinued rolls of paper and bought a ton of bright, colorful (mostly 60's and 70's era) prints.  You can cover the tables with the paper, staple or tape them to the bottom surface, and then accessorize the table to match or contrast with each wallpaper print.

Everyone loved the idea.  It was way cheaper than buying tablecloths at a party supply warehouse, most of the paper was at least partly vinyl, therefore, spill-proof, and the leftover paper is still being used as wrapping paper to this day.

ohhhh...cool idea for the wallpaper tableclothes thanks!

I like paper chains too  Grin

I was kind of thinking of getting some cheap beach umbrellas for in the room.  I know it's bad luck to open an umbrella inside, but hey I'll risk it.  Or they have some bright colored umbrellas at the dollar store for $1 each, if I could figure out a way to hang them upside down from the ceiling then I could drape the garland from umbrella to umbrella?

Oh, this is a *facepalm* moment.  It would be cool to have a bunch of super-cheap, super-bright ribbon doing something.  We shall find out the purpose of this mystery ribbon

With bright ribbons, someone else on here tacked them from floor to ceiling at nice angles.  I can't remember what the post was called, but it was REALLY pretty, easy, and inexpensive.  Plus you can do whatever with flower shapes on the wall in various spots too.  Even just big circles of paper like different sized polka dots would be cool and mod looking and not too over-the-top.
