Oktoberfest may have started in Germany, but it's certainly made a splash stateside. For the next couple of weekends, people all over America will be sipping cold ones and snacking on soft pretzels — lederhosen optional. If you love an excuse to host a party, this is the perfect time to send some invites for a weekend get-together. All you need is some brats, pretzels and beer.

Omaha Steaks, $14.99

First things first, the food. You'll want to stock up on bratwurst for a crowd. (We suggest serving it with German-Style Sweet and Sour Cabbage.) Omaha Steaks can deliver quality sausages right to your door, so you can spend more time setting up and less time making last-minute supermarket runs.

The streets of Munich are lined with tons of pennant banners, and your backyard should be, too. This banner measures 118 feet, so you should be able to string it back and forth a few times before needing a second or third.
