If you were a fan of the hit show Stranger Things, then you’ll be excited to hear that the new season airs on Netflix NEXT FRIDAY! (That’s 10 days away!) While you can watch it alone in the dark (I dare you), why not invite over some of your fellow Stranger-loving friends for a viewing party?! With these budget-friendly tips, you can turn your living room upside down and make this a night to remember!
First things first, you’ve gotta invite some friends! Make some cool themed invitations to set the mood for your guests! Make your own invitations, buy some, or set up a Facebook event (just be sure you use an awesome cover photo and maybe even post a countdown!).
Decorate the living room!
Take it back to the 80’s by decorating your living room with some awesome retro pieces. Just take a trip to the thrift store (or Grandma’s house) and pick up some stuff like an old telephone, patterned lamp shades, some crochet blankets, velvet pillows, and of course…colourful Christmas lights (LOTS of em)!
Recreate the alphabet wall!
What’s a Stranger Things party without the alphabet wall?! You can easily recreate it by first clearing a wall, covering it with patterned paper, painting on the alphabet, and attaching Christmas lights with command hooks!
Eat Eleven’s favourite food…Eggos!
If there’s gonna be a party, there better be food! And if it’s a Stranger Things party, there better be Eggos! Pick up some frozen waffles from the grocery store, or get your friends to each bring a box! You can also serve up some Coca~Cola, Pringles, Smarties (which are Rockets if you live in Canada), trail mix, and nilla wafers.
To really throw it back, have your guests dress up 80’s style or as characters from the show!
