Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

IT IS not of­ten flat­pack fur­ni­ture and cray­fish have some­thing in com­mon.

But Ikea Mars­den Park will give res­i­dents a taste of Swe­den when it hosts a tra­di­tional kraft­skiva or cray­fish party from 5.30pm to­day.

Visi­tors to the store, which opened in May, will don their pa­per hats and bibs to try the buf­fet, with del­i­ca­cies in­clud­ing bright red cray­fish, cheese pie, her­ring, bread, salmon and tra­di­tional songs.

Ikea Mars­den Park store man­ager An­nie Chan­dler said the party was a dis­tinctly Swedish cel­e­bra­tion.

“The Mars­den Park com­mu­nity has wel­comed us and we’re cel­e­brat­ing by bring­ing Swedish cul­ture to our neigh­bours,” she said.

Meals range be­tween $10 and $30 and book­ings are es­sen­tial.
