Oktoberfest 2018 is in full swing, and you’re planning to add some German flavor into your upcoming get-together? Well, throwing an Oktoberfest party is a perfect excuse to gorge on beer, bretzels, sauerkraut salad, and fried sausages, to give another chance to your gingham linens, and to craft a couple of DIY decorations. By the way, we’ve rounded up some select ideas of the latter for your convenience!

Blooming Mug

Since beer is a staple of Oktoberfest, let it be your main inspiration for your “Beer Garden”. For example, you can decorate your table setup with  the blooming mug. For this simple yet splashy centerpiece, you’ll need our orange water beads, fairy lights, and white hydrangeas (or chrysanthemums). Fill the mug with the beads to resemble beer, add fairly lights, and insert the white hydrangeas into the gel beads so that the flower heads looked like beer foam.

Suit Up Your Vases!

Got an ugly vase? Don’t throw it away – instead, dress it up in a smart “dirndl” (German traditional feminine apparel)! To surprise your guests with this centerpiece, you’ll need two pieces of blue paper and a piece of white paper (8.5″ x 11″), yellow ribbon (1/2″ to 5/8″ width), blue satin ribbon (1/2″ to 5/8″ width), and a piece of white lace, a hot glue gun, and this straightforward guide. Once done, fill your vase with any fall flowers and blow your invitees away with a whimsical display! Looking for something even more sophisticated? Not a problem – using leftover blue satin ribbons, pieces of white lace, scraps of gingham fabric, and a needle, you can wow your guests with these awesome vests!

Bavarian Candle Holders

 

To make this amazing candle centerpiece, you’ll need a jar, a white votive candle, gingham ribbon, daisy, blue and white satin trims, and white acrylic paint. First up, paint the bottom of the mug white. Wait until it becomes dry and hot-glue a gingham ribbon with bretzels and daisies atop. In the end, weave blue and white satin ribbons together and trim the top of your jar. Place the candle inside and your centerpiece is ready to receive multiple compliments!

Windsock

 

Looking for an alternative to traditional Oktoberfest green wreath? Try out this easy windsock. Stock up on different blue and white ribbons and sweep the dust off your old vine wreath form (or embroidery hoop). You don’t even have to use glue – just tie the ribbons to the form and voila! This accessory is perfect to be hung above your celebratory table, which adds a bit of dimension.

Pumpkin Keg

To add a touch of pumpkin into your Oktoberfest gathering, craft a pumpkin keg. For this masterpiece, you’ll need a pumpkin, tap, beer that pairs nicely with a pumpkin flavor, and a knife. Use a knife to cut about half an inch off the top to make a lid and clean out all the seeds and innards of your pumpkin. Carve out a hole at the bottom of your pumpkin and insert the tap. Fill your keg with any beer of your choice, and enjoy!

Floating Candle Mug

An ordinary beer mug can be easily transformed into a luminous centerpiece. Using a food coloring, dye water into golden yellow and pour it into the mug. Then, place a white floating candle on the top of the water (to mimic the beer foam) and light it up. Line several centerpieces along the table for a mesmerizing display!

No matter how you plan to celebrate Octoberfest, there's no wrong way to do it!  Whether it's the drinking, eating, or dancing that appeals to you about Octoberfest, it's always a good time! When you are shopping for Octoberfest decorations, don't forget about tableclothsfactory.com's wide selection of goodies in all types of colors to meet your needs!
