Throw a cute Oktoberfest party for your 2 year old with these fun Ok-2-berfest party ideas!
My baby girl turned 2 last week. Gosh, that went fast. We threw an “Ok-2-berfest” 2nd birthday party for her and invited her grandparents to come and celebrate with us. Since I lived in Germany for a year back in my college days, I tied in some of my favorite things from Germany: Haribo gummies, brats (totally American style!), soft pretzels, and root beer since we don’t drink beer around here. I think everyone had fun! I know I did!
Evelyn loved the giant letter balloons!
Oktoberfest Party Details!
Chocolate cupcakes + yogurt pretzels (so German!) + sprinkles were a simple, but festive treat!
Oktoberfest Party Favors
Haribo makes the best gummy candies hands down! (Trust me, I lived in Germany for a year and I ate plenty of Haribo…ya living by the factory was not the best. Ha! )
So for our Oktoberfest party favors, I packaged Haribo gummy bears in these cute mini craft boxes and attached “Danke for coming” tags on them. Danke means thanks, in case it wasn’t obvious.
I chose a very family-friendly menu for our party! We served:
- brats aka gourmet hot dogs
- homemade pretzels and cheese sauce recipe below)
- Root Beer (with a taste test!)
I’m not a cake expert, so I opted for chocolate cupcakes (recipe using a cake mix below) instead with yogurt-pretzel toppers. Pretzels are very German so I was happy with this super easy cake solution.
I’m so glad my Evelyn loves to party as much as I do! But if she would just stop growing up so fast. I’d be much happier!
And that’s our Ok-2-berfest 2nd birthday party! Danke for reading! 🙂
