Buckets: You can get a white, 5-gallon bucket from most hardware stores. I liked the orange of the buckets from Home Depot (around $3.00). You might also be able to get free buckets from bakeries or restaurants.
Fabric: I bought oil cloth at a fabric store, but for a few dollars, you can also buy a plastic table cloth at a discount store. Some of them come in great patterns.
