A Yorkshire Oktoberfest

Last week we decided to host an Oktoberfest themed lunch at work, so I got all dressed up traditionally.

Oktoberfest fancy dress

Although I may look quite authentically German, the outfit is actually 100% British as it's a vintage Laura Ashley dress, so the convincing look must be due to the fact that I'm actually German.

To add a bit of fun to the day I've spent several nights before the event creating a life size cardboard cutout for an amusing photo prop ...

People had great fun having their pictures taken and the day itself was pretty good too, full of traditional German food and (obviously) beer making me feel quite homely.
