Prize-Winning Oktoberfest Ideas
Posted by Stumps Spirit on October 5, 2011
Have an Oktoberfest-themed fundraiser, dance or German Club banquet coming up? Mix a few very special pieces into your Oktoberfest decorations to turn an ordinary Oktoberfest into an event that gets wunderbar reviews.
Shop Decorations by Color
Did you know: You can shop decorations by color at Stumps Party. This is a sure-fire method for Oktoberfest decorating that gathers accolades for originality, so don’t be afraid to put a bit of a pretzel-like twist on tradition!
Shop blue for the traditional Bavarian blue-and-white color scheme, or red if your inspiration is the German national flag. You can zoom in on a special piece for your Oktoberfest party that already comes in your color, such as a dazzling chandelier or one of the cool new inflatable arches or columns. You might also get ideas for using certain materials a bit differently than usual – how about tabletops covered in dark blue floral sheeting, for example.
Select a Beautiful Backdrop
You can inject new energy into even a long-established, annual event by presenting a beautiful new decoration among your usual Oktoberfest décor, and we predict oohs and aahhs among the oompah-pahs if it’s a mural, background illustration or photo backdrop.
Check out Stumps Party’s unmatched selection of sizes and materials to suit whatever room size (or tent) and budget you’re working with.
We recommend adding the Beer Barrel photo background illustration or the World Traveler mural to your Oktoberfest event supplies to get the desired effect.
Create a Signature Oktoberfest Banner
For promotional purposes or as part of the décor – or both! – it is easy to create a distinctive Oktoberfest vinyl banner. Start with a Stumps basic design, such as the German Flag banner, and customize it. Or, for just a little bit more investment in time and effort use Create-A Banner from scratch to ensure a signature emblem for your event (also see Vertical Create-A Banner).
Create-A Banner gives you power over font, background design, text, graphic, and all design colors. When it comes time to select background and graphic designs, select the “Holidays” category to bring up the Oktoberfest designs.
We recently utilized Create-A Banner to design a German Club Oktoberfest Supper banner. We chose the blue-and-white German Festival background and resized the images to be smaller; and for the graphic chose the Oktoberfest Crest in German flag colors. The text box we turned red, the text itself gold with black outlines. We were very pleased with the result and give Create-A Banner two mugs up for Oktoberfest decorating!
