Decorating for an Oktoberfest party can be fun and easy. With OktoberfestHaus.com’s vast selection of Oktoberfest party decorations and years of Oktoberfest decorating experience, we’ve decided to put together a simple guide focusing on the basics of how to decorate for an Oktoberfest party.
The Bavarian flag is light blue and white in a check pattern. Since Oktoberfest originates in Munich, Bavaria, blue and white check is the official pattern of Oktoberfest.
Exterior Oktoberfest decorations:
Interior Oktoberfest decorations:
Your goal should be to recreate the beer tents at Oktoberfest Munich. Each tent has its own unique decorations, so get creative and make your party into your own custom beer tent. Start with the ceiling. Add garlands and hanging decorations from the ceiling running the entire length of the space. Next, decorate the walls. Pick several Oktoberfest wall cutouts to hang on the wall. Rotate between cutouts of steins, German food, biergarten signs and Oktoberfest signs.
Oktoberfest table decorations:
Decorating your beer garden tables can be easy. Lay out your tables in rows, matching the layout of the Oktoberfest Beer Tents, and cover each table with a Bavarian check table cover. In the middle of each table, add an Oktoberfest centerpiece. You can choose the colors of the German flag to mix things up if you like. For the tableware, don’t forget the Oktoberfest cups, Oktoberfest napkins, and Oktoberfest plates!
Viel Gluck. (Good luck.)
