That is until now, because our favorite Swedish furniture warehouse will be hosting a Swedish Crayfish Party that will feature a crawfish, also called crayfish by some, buffet, deviled eggs, gravad lax (raw salmon cured in salt), those famous meatballs, Swedish cheese and so much more.

The end-of-summer crawfish party is actually a time-honored Swedish tradition. “The Crayfish Party is an anticipated celebration in Sweden marking the end of the summer and the official beginning of Crayfish fishing season,” said Patricia Meumann, Ikea food manager. “We invite everyone to celebrate this tradition and share a piece of our Swedish heritage over a delicious meal.”
