Steal This Look: Biergarten Table Setting


Steal This Look: Biergarten Table Setting

April 17, 2012

Oktoberfest has us thinking about the last days of outdoor entertaining, which has us revisiting a biergarten table setting that we featured on the Martha Stewart Show in April. The look is inspired by San Francisco’s white-hot Suppenküche Biergarten (good luck getting a table).

Create your own modern take on the classic German biergarten with the essential elements sourced below, and for more information on this Bay Area haunt, see Restaurant Visit: Suppenküche Biergarten in SF.

Above: The snack bar features open Douglas Fir shelving and pendant task lamps.

Above: Utensils and napkins are corralled in stoneware mugs.

Above: The sunny courtyard. For similar lighting, consider 48 feet of Outdoor Commercial String Lights; $89.97 from Amazon.

Above: Vintage German blankets are available to take the chill off the night air; the Bundeswehr Wool Blanket from the German Bund; a set of four is $159 at Deutsche Optik.

Above: The Biergarten Folding Wood Table and Bench is available in natural wood (shown) and in orange for $549 from Oktoberfesthaus.

Above: Illuminate your table with Recycled Bottle Lanterns; 8.5 inches tall and $26.50 at Aha Modern Living. Another hanging lantern option is the battery-powered Soji Solar Lantern in white; a colored LED inside is responsible for the amber glow. We’d hang a cluster in a tree at the far edge of the garden. (N.B.: Happily, the price has been cut to $17 since the last time we admired it.)

Above: The Six-Piece Beer Tasting Set from the Martha Stewart Collection includes pilsner, tulip, and pub glasses; $29.99 for the set at Macy’s.

Above: Straub’s in New Hampshire offers a variety of brew mugs perfect for storing utensils; the Spaten Stoneware Mug is $14.50.

Above: We like to use Elly Dish Towels as napkins; $3.99 for a pack of four at Ikea.

Above: The Olivier Flatware Set features olive wood handles and is made in France; $69.95 for a five-piece place setting from Crate & Barrel.

Above: The round 16-inch-diameter Galvanized Steel Tub is perfect for chilling bottles of pilsner; $54.95 at Vintage Tub.

Above: Banish the bugs with this soy Mosquito Repellent Candle, free of citronella and DEET, for $56 (the concrete container is reusable) from Hillhouse Naturals Farm.
