The Oktoberfest party that my cousin and I threw was a bit of an undertaking, but I don’t think the process was much more involved than a typical larger dinner party. If I do say so myself, I was pretty impressed with our organization and efficiency this time around. We did as much work as possible early on, so that there wasn’t quite as much of a mad dash right before dinner began. The desserts can be made ahead of time, several dishes of the meal are made in crock pots or roasters, and the decorations simple enough to be put together early.. To make you as prepared as we were, I put together a handy Oktoberfest party planning checklist WITH a timeline to make sure your Oktoberfest party runs as smoothly as the DeutscheBahn system!
