Do you love the 80s, a beloved and stylistically outlandish decade, and Stranger Things, a beloved and outlandishly 80’s program? Then this theme party is right up your 8-bit alley. Cheers to turning your party upside down! All printable designs are available on Etsy, courtesy of your resident fantasy design nerd here.

“D&D Class” Character Playing Cards & Card Stands

Riffing off the influence of Dungeons & Dragons in the show, I built these mini game board placecard stands using a bunch of dice and primed figurines. Each card design features the character’s declared class: Mage, Paladin, Cleric, Bard, Ranger, and, last but not least, Zoomer!

D&D Mini Game Board Card Stand Materials

  • Wood blocks (measuring 3 in × 3 in × 0.5 in)
  • Dungeons & Dragons figurines
  • Dice (assorted colors)
  • Hot glue
  • Acrylic paint (I used gray primer, silver, and black)
  • Aluminum armature wire

Stranger Things Pixel Icon Toppers

Gotta add some flair to all those waffles and party treats. Toppers include Stranger Things characters (Eleven, Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas, Max, the Demogorgon) and other relevant 80’s-themed icons.
