Stranger Things 3 Party and Free Printables: Stranger Things themed party ideas based on Season 3, including free Stranger Things Free Printables.
Stranger Things Season 3
Netflix just released Stranger Things Season 3, and it did not disappoint. I thought it would be fun to put together a party based on the new season -perfect for inviting friends over to watch, or to celebrate your next birthday with a Stranger Things themed party. I’ve included some Stranger Things free printables that you can download at the end of this post.
The Radio Tower
There’s lots of fun details this season that inspired the party table. One of my favourite parts is the mini radio tower I built. I used a mini tripod and added on a few coat hangers, some wire, and a slinky to create something that looked a little like the one that Dusty builds so he can contact Suzie. This is such a fun and easy backdrop for this great table of foods inspired by Stranger Things Season Three.
The other fun party decoration and food table backdrop is the Russian code. Inspired by the white board at Scoops Ahoy where Dustin, Steve, and Robin cracked the code… well mostly just Robin. 😉 I used an inexpensive poster board for mine, and it worked out perfectly.
80’s Inspired Decor
I used a few 80’s inspired old cassette and video tapes I found in my basement and they were the perfect additions to the table. I also included some extra batteries for Dustin, a robot inspired by the ones that El makes follow Dustin out of his room, and a my little pony for the Erica and Dustin’s big my pony discussion.
- cassette tapes
- video tapes
- extra batteries
- toy robot
- my little ponies
All the food for the party was inspired by Season Three. I made really fun free printable Stranger Things food labels. Just subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the post, and we’ll send you access to our Free Stranger Things Season 3 Printable food labels, and cupcake pics.
- new coke
- Heather’s “fresh out of the oven” cookies
- Does your species like M&Ms?
- Scoops Away USS Butterscotch ice cream
- Smell the nacho cheese Doritos
- Burger King burgers and fries
- Strawberry Slurpees
Stranger Things Free Printables
I loved how the show included “New Coke” and remember the summer it came out. You can actually buy New Coke for a limited time -click the link here. It would be fun for a party, but is quite expensive. I think it’s good enough to print the label and serve up some Coke Classic.
Remember the part in the season 3 where Billy is having dinner at Heather’s parents house, and Eleven and Max show up, and Heather offers them some “freshly baked cookies”? That scene inspired the cookies.
Next is the “does your spieces like M&Ms”? These are from when Mike makes up with Eleven at the hospital while they’re in the waiting room.
We also served some “Burger King Whoppers and Fries” inspired by the meal Alexei requests when Jim, Joyce, and Murray are questioning him.
And let’s not forget the “Strawberry Slurpee” that was supposed to be Cherry.
We also included some “Smell the Nacho Cheese Doritos” inspired by Mike’s line about his burps when El is spying on the boys.
It wouldn’t be Stranger Things without some Eggos for Eleven.
And we had to include some “Scoops Ahoy U.S.S. Butterscotch” ice cream from Steve’s drugged interrogation by the Russians. With our Scoops Ahoy printable label of course.
Stranger Things 3 Cupcake Pics
Last but not least we made some really fun Season 3 inspired cupcake pics with our favourite quotes on them.
- Boyfriends Lie.
- I dump your ass.
- You can’t spell American without Erica.
- There’s more to life than stupid boys.
- Nancy Drew where are you?
- Planck’s Constant 6.62607004
- Once you open the curiosity door, anything is possilble.
- Now can we play D & D?
- Hotter than Phoebe Cates
- Busty Bun + Suzie Poo Forever
To make the cupcake pics, just cut out the printable with a 2 inch hole punch and glue to a toothpick. These would also be really fun to use as a banner, or tie onto favour bags.
This party was so fun to put together and really easy. All the food was store bought, and a super yummy party menu too with a great mix of sweets and savoury.
I hope this inspires you to invite some fellow Stranger Things friends over and chat about your theories of the ending and if ….. really died (I don’t want to spoil it for you if you’re not done watching yet). 😉
With a Stranger Things 3, life is really a party!
