If you can’t make it to Munich for Oktoberfest this year – host a mini party at home to celebrate! Just make sure your celebration happens between September 16-October 3 (the official dates of the festival). For this Bavarian party, we served beer in mini steins, mini sausages (cocktail sausages also work!), mini pretzels, and a selection of different mustards. We also made bunting and flag pick printables based on the traditional Bavarian flag…
We purchased a few different kinds of German beers, and covered the labels, so we could do a taste-testing game. (The mini steins are perfect for this.) For the mini soft pretzels, we used this recipe.
Are you hosting an Oktoberfest party this year? Prost!
Bavarian Flag Inspired Bunting Garland
Step 1: Print the bunting flags and cut out each shape.
Step 2: Measure a piece of twine 9-½’ long and cut.
Step 3: Fold over the tab on each flag and hot glue together around the twine. Separate each flag 1-½” apart. You’re ready to hang your garland!
