My husband and I just purchased a new house, and we’re very excited to move out of our teeny-tiny apartment and into a home where we can actually host parties! For our housewarming party (which we’ll be having at the end of September), we decided to celebrate Oktoberfest. Since our families are big beer connoisseurs and love Oktoberfest foods (brats, pretzels, and sauerkraut! Yum!), it’s a perfect theme.
When I started planning, I browsed through a bunch of Oktoberfest Party Ideas and designed an inspiration board that reflects the overall style and mood I hope to achieve. I also picked out some cute Oktoberfest Invitations and Party Favors which match my theme (see above). Check out my inspiration board and other party ideas, and keep an eye out for future posts on my Oktoberfest theme housewarming party!

At our party, I want to highlight the delicious Oktoberfest foods (can anyone say brats and beer?), so I included a lot of savory pictures of my favorite dishes in my inspiration board. The centerpieces will be simple; I can't decide between the beer stein carnation centerpiece or the wheat one. And because many of my family members are big on specialty beers, we'll be serving quite of few of those along with hosting a beer tasting! Plus, I'll just have to order two Oktoberfest Lifesize Cutouts of me and my husband. They'll look great at the front door; it is our housewarming after all!
