We joined an amazing mid-summer cray-fish party at IKEA today.

For 2,200 ¥ (around 20 $) we enjoyed all the cray-fish we could eat.

The party also included a toasting drink of Aquavit. What is Aquavit made of?

Like vodka, aquavit is distilled from grain or potato but it’s spiced with caraway and other flavors like dill, anise, fennel, coriander and cardamom.

At the end of the party was a great fruit desert.

The party was held for 2 hours and during the lt half of the party a band played music.

The party was great.

At the end of the party the host awarded prizes to lucky party attendees.

To my surprise I was awarded a great Swedish gift that included 2 kilograms of frozen cray-fish, a paper lantern and Swedish party decorations.

Looks like I will be able to have another Swedish party at home.

If your interested in attending the IKEA party make sure to become an IKEA “family member” and register early next time.

Enjoy the video we made.
