Oktoberfest is the largest and most popular fair in the world. It originated in Bavaria southern Germany and every year 6 million people from around the world descend on Bavaria particularly Munich to be a party of Oktoberfest. Celebrating Oktoberfest typically involves getting as drunk as possible while filling up on tasty German food.

First, you’re going to need to decide on a location. If you’re thinking about having your celebration in public at a restaurant, make sure they don’t have their own events planned that might interfere with your festivities. Many places do. One of the better options is a private home. You could also choose to rent a hotel suite or multiple rooms for the event since there is bound to be a lot of beer drinking going on. Be sure to include the location details on your Oktoberfest cards.

Second, you need to choose a time and date for the event. The German Oktoberfest takes place near the end of September and near the beginning of October. Some places outside of Germany celebrate on their own schedules. It might be a good idea to plan your Oktoberfest invitation around existing events. Although, you could probably get away with having an Oktoberfest in July party as well – it works for Christmas.

Decor for an Oktoberfest party theme revolves around the colors of the Bavarian Oktoberfest flag: white and cobalt blue, preferably in a diamond pattern. The flag sports a gold lion crest, so posters of the lion are a nice touch. For an adult party, steins, mugs and other beer-themed decorations are a blast. Pass around Alpine feathered caps and beer goggles for guests to wear. You can also fire up the grill for bratwurst and meanwhile served the guests with sauerkraut and big salty pretzels.
