Bavarian Oktoberfest Party Décor Ideas for a Fall Tablescape


Willkommen to an Oktoberfest party where the tablescape décor will transport you to a fanciful Bavarian hunting lodge straight out of Grimm’s fairy tales. So don your dirndls or lederhosen, fill your bier steins, and raise prost to a chorus of “Ein Prosit” for a wunderbar family folk fest!


Dark brown tablecloths reminiscent of solid Alpine earth ground the tablescape. Nail-head trimmed pewter chargers topped with true blue dishes echo the pewter hinged lids and stoneware glazing of the steinkrugs. A feather motif dances around the edges of ivory salad plates.


Feathers encircle “leather” rings containing lederhosen protecting cloth. (Find the napkin ring craft tutorial here.)


Carved wooden acorns tied with feathers and nametags direct polka dancers to their seats. (Find the place-card craft tutorial here.)


Tiny acorns scatter across the table acting as yesteryear confetti.


An Alpine “horned” tray befits the base of a centerpiece glowing with candles, scattered feathers, and a large vintage steinkrug of gathered fall branches and long feathers. (Find the centerpiece tutorial here.)


Green foliaged trees and a one-of-a-kind European armoire, refit with a placid oil painting, set the background scenery.


A vintage wooden sign carved with a German message of welcome stands in greeting. A carven hare guards an antique pewter pitcher festooned with colorful plumes. A tiny bierkrug sits feather-filled alongside it.


A toast is proposed… may our hearts forever be filled with merriment just as the kartoffelpuffers, knackwurst, sauerkraut, and apfel sauce fill our bellies this very evening! Gemütlichkeit!

Faithfully Yours,

    1. Thank you so much! The whole website is DIY with no outsourcing. I would suggest buying a custom domain (.com) & paying a web host a monthly fee to manage a WordPress site for your blog. They manage security & backups for you, but you still get easier WordPress site building. They have so many themes to start with, then you can modify themes & colors, add custom pages & forms, post photo slideshows & videos, etc… You can make your site unlike anyone else’s. If you need help, there are Q&A forums with free instruction. I really wish you the best of luck in your new venture.
