However, traditional crayfish parties usually take place in the month of August in Sweden.
BUT, the crayfish tradition for us "Svennar" here in NoVA is a dinner party in September, or October.
It is ALWAYS a top of the line dinner in EVERY regard.
Lotta is a HELL of chef! And, I mean it for all it is worth! She cooks and bakes everything herself, and it tastes like it would in heaven!!
PLUS that everything in their house is so beautifully decorated.
It is such a treat for "The Swedish gang" and their hubbies to be invited to this party year after year after year.
It's been a tradition since 2001!
Keep 'em coming, Lotta and Magnus!
AND THANK YOU!!
A picture bomb! And, I got hungry just creating this post.
Crayfish straight from the Mothership (aka IKEA).
What an inviting table!
Apples with our names for the seating arrangements!
Taste in every corner!
AND, the dinner. OH the food! SO delish and PLENTY of everything!
Jocke, Anna and Wendell!
Do enjoy!!! YES, we will!!
Sara, Anna and Susanna!
Lotta, our hostess, in the middle!!
And, sure, three pies for desert!! What is not to love!! OH, and crayfish decorated cupcakes that Iris, 11, made!
The traditional "Carmella Soprano" photo!! Two gals are missing; Monica and Veronica.
But the rest of us are: Susanna, Anna, Lotta, Sara and Yours Truly!
So, a splendid party it WAS!!
I am already looking forward to next year's crayfish party!
Today's just a regular Tuesday.
PW for me, and then some errands!
HAVE a lovely one!!
