Crayfish Party at IKEA

A couple of weeks ago I went to a Crayfish Party at our local IKEA store.
My sister-in-law invited me to come along and eat some yummy Swedish food!
I wouldn't say no to that lol ☺
 Hubby was home with the kiddies while I was eating scrumptiously delicious crayfish  
and other Swedish delicacies.

Yummy crayfish

Looking good in traditional crayfish bib lol

  1. oh that looks fun - and very yummy! I am a big seafood fan ... any which way you want to serve it up :)

  2. Plenty of blues and I do like the way your photos are presented on the timber background.

  3. I love your blues. I never realized that crayfish were Swedish; I always thought that they were Louisiana!

    Happy Blue Monday, Pernilla!

  4. That looks delicious. My blues are here and here.

  5. Ja, det är kräfttider nu! Hälsningar från Sverige

  6. Smaskens!

    Och du - Dallas verkar bra. Här visas det både ikväll och imorgon (också!). :)

  7. Yummy! Looks like fun!

    Visiting from Blue Monday. Please come and see my BLUE post when you get a chance, thank you!

  8. Great tablescape and festive indeed. Hugs, Marty

  9. I have been to one feast such as this. It was great. Looks as tho you both had a great time.

  10. Oh how fun! I love crawfish and we have crawfish cook outs here when it is in season...Christine

  11. The only time that I have had crayfish was when I was visiting relatives in Sweden many years ago. So delicious. I also love Ikea and haven't been there for year either.. need to make another trip.

  12. Your photos are so colorful - lurvs them.

    You know, I've never been to an Ikea. Perhaps someday.

    Visiting you from Ivy and Elephants WIW.

  13. It seems you had a great time!
    And it looks so yummy. Good idea leaving children with their dad! haha
    Besos from Argentina, Silvina

  14. How fun - even though I don't eat seafood I still want to go to a crayfish party! The colors are fab (and there's always something to pick up)!

  15. Oh, this looks like fun! I love crayfish and sometimes people suck the juice out of the heads. Now that's one thing I just can't do! :)
    Thanks you so much for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. G´morron Ms. Sweden Dowunder...

    OMG... kräftor... bästa jag vet §:-) Gubben min fyller 50 år imorgon men har kräftskiva på lördag.

    Jag hoppas bara att inget regn. Partytält är stor men när regnar så är det ingn kul.

    Ha så mysig helg på Er vännen och kram till din lilla familj.


  17. Wow! I never knew Ikea hosted parties, brilliant! Love their napkins and it looked like you had great yummy fun! Hopping over from BTOTP Tablescape Thurs!

  18. Aww, you look like you had so much fun! All those bright colors are great. I wish we had an IKEA near.

  19. Looks like fun - I had no idea IKEA hosted parties like that.

  20. What fun! I live several hours away from the nearest IKEA. I can only visit once or twice a year. I love all their accessories and I never knew they had crayfish! It looks like you had a great time.

  28. Hi Pernilla,
