Oktoberfest Tablescape

October 17, 1810 was the date of the first Oktoberfest ever held. Originally to celebrate a wedding and enjoying it so much, the community continued to celebrate each year (with the exception of the time it was cancelled for the Napoleonic War) thru today. Currently, the Bavarian festival attracts over six million people from all around the world and continues to grow even though it can be a bit pricey. The average price for a litter (a little over four cups) of beer - the customary size serving - is around $13-$15. Most attendees drink many, many liters.....

Pat set this week's table using the colors of the German flag and not the time-honored blue and white colors of Oktoberfest. She featured German-made Waechtersbach dinnerware and lots of  traditional beer steins.
The colorful table "pops" with the traditional colors of the German flag

Flatware is sturdy "Pinch" by Mikasa

Pat started with three  weaved square place mats from Bed, Bath, and Beyond to build the place setting

Glassware is from the Dollar Tree
