Thanks, Arlene. I have a small makeshift studio setup and don't use anything complicated. The background for this photo was construction paper with the cup sitting on a mirror. I also use rolls of plain wrapping paper (which make great inexpensive backgrounds). Also, I have some fabrics that I use, too, depending on what I'm shooting.
