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.

Eastern Standard Provisions, $17.99

An Oktoberfest party wouldn't be complete without pretzels. Snag a pack that's the right size for your party — you can order as few as four servings and as many as 12 from Eastern Standard Provisions.

Amazon, $24.99

What's a pretzel without mustard? We love this sampler set, even though it's totally non-traditional. With flavors like truffle and garlic, this a way to give your party a modern spin.

Amazon, $17.98 for 4

Sure, you could just sip your Oktoberfest beer out of the bottle, but what's more festive than a big beer mug? Grab a bunch of these for your guests and then send them home as a party favor.

Amazon, $6.54

Make decor super simple with these tablecloth that cost less than the price of two Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. These are disposable and make clean-up a breeze.

Amazon, $16.64

Sure, you've got the savory food down, but an Oktoberfest party is also the perfect excuse to whip up a German Chocolate Cake. You'll probably be partying outside, so invest in a cake cover to keep your handiwork from attracting pesky mosquitoes.

Amazon, $19.99

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.
