10 Awesome Oktoberfest Party Ideas

By C D Jackson

Oktoberfest takes place over 16 days in September and October every year in Bavaria. In addition there are many private Oktoberfest parties thrown throughout the world. You can throw your own with the help of the following Oktoberfest party ideas:

1. Send out invites in the fashion of beer goggles, bratwurst, beer kegs, beer glasses, beer steins or lederhosen. You could cut them out of cardboard! State clearly that guests will be charged on the door if they fail to dress up!

2. For costumes, guys get to wear the awful lederhosen. Hold them up with some braces and you will look truly ridiculous. Get yourself a hat with feather and some knee height socks and you are set to go!

3. Ladies, you get to wear traditional Bavarian or Alpine peasant girl costume. This includes a lacy blouse and tight bodice. You can also dye your hair blonde and tie it up in cute pig tails.

4. Your decorations should be in blue and white to represent the color of the Bavarian flag. Get plenty of blue and white balloons to stick up everywhere.

5. Try and make a long line of wooden tables and benches across the room to give it the look of a brau haus bier keller.

6. Bake some gingerbread men and hang them from the ceiling. Make cut outs of lederhosen, beer glasses and beer kegs and also hang them up!

7. Dont forget the German flag to hang on the walls and miniature versions for the tables. It may not be pretty, but its traditional!

8. If its in your budget why not hire out a brass band to play some traditional beer hall music.

9. You should make some of the many famous German dishes such as; garlic bread, weiner schnitzel, sausage stuffed mushrooms, pretzels, sauerkraut, nuremburgers, meatloaf, bratwurst, black forest cake, apple strudel and gingerbread.

10. The most important part of your Oktoberfest theme party is the beer and lots of it! Get in a large variety of German beer. There will be people wanting to sample a wide range. Get in some deep colored beers too! Germany makes the best beer in the world so enjoy! - 31805
