I know Stranger Things Season 3 is still filming and said to arrive on Netflix sometime in 2019. But if you haven’t caught up or never watched, Fall season is the perfect time to do so!
And nothing is more fun than binge watching a new show with friends and hosting a good viewing party! Here was my viewing party planning process for the start of Season 2.
Here are some key elements I incorporated in my table scheme/decorations/treats. Based on the show logo, my color scheme involved using- black, white, and red paper goods and table cloths.
Here is a full view of my table set up…
Close up shots:
For the upside down I used part of a black table cloth and layered some cob webs and creepy cloth on top, adding some fake spiders here and there.
I used the lights to symbolize Will talking to his mom through the lights. Nearby is the upside map they drew in the show.
I found this old vintage looking wrapping paper in the dollar store and it reminded me of the Byers home living room, so I freehanded the letters to the alphabet and strung up my Christmas light necklace. I feel like this was a pretty close look!
For Beverages I thought cranberry juice suited the idea I had for Dragon Punch inspired by the game the boys play- Dungeons and Dragons. I bought the little dinosaur/dragon figures in the dollar store.
To be a little more theme oriented, I decorated red cups with Stranger Things Labels, and made drink stirrers by putting marshmallows on coffee stirrers.
Cocoa Cola because the 80s setting! But also because…Eleven (as scene in gif above) is a total #BADASS. I also quoted the term the kids often use in the show.
Chocolate pudding because…Dustin…well loves it… (see gif above)
And my favorite part of all…a waffle bar because Eleven is a huge fan and so am I!!!! We just toasted a bunch of waffles, and put out some ice cream, and some toppings.
Below is ya girl, cheesin’ hard. I had actually made this t-shirt. Now I own several Stranger Things Graphic Tees, but for this viewing party I didn’t have any so I improvised. I bought a black cheap t-shirt, and cut the collar off. Then I cut the bottom hem off and the two hems on either sleeve. Pulling the sides as to stretch and allow material to roll at the ends causing a distressed look. Lastly, I cut random holes all over and added stick on black letters that I had painted with red glitter.
I also had the song that Mike always heard/played…Will’s song…
I love doing stuff like this. I love tv and I love living in a tv world for a day! That is my favorite type of party planning!
So…Who watches Stranger Things? Did you have a viewing party of your own?
