We were invited to celebrate the season at IKEA’s annual Swedish Julbord smorgasbord – a nationwide event at participating stores.  A traditional Julbord is a highlight of Swedish cuisine, consisting of local and family specialties enjoyed with family and friends.

Tickets for the all-you-can-eat buffet featuring traditional Swedish dishes were $16.99 per person / $4.99 for kids 12 and under, or at a discounted rate for IKEA FAMILY members ($12.99 per person / $2.99 for kids 12 and under).

IKEA Food Range and Product Developer, Peter Ho, says, “The Julbord buffet is at the center of the classic Scandinavian holiday celebration, uniting family and friends alike.  It is a much anticipated tradition in Sweden that we enjoy sharing with customers all over.”
