How do you know the summer has officially come to an end? The season for crayfish parties begins!
Last Friday we drove to an island a little bit outside of Norrtälje to spend the weekend at my friend Michelle’s summer house. Our pre-party group kicked Saturday off with a casual dip to the rather cold sea, after which we spent the whole day preparing the party: food, balloons, decorations, lights, party tents and playlists. Mostly we cooked, even though I have to admit the actual crayfish had only a formal – let’s say a more decorative – role in our serving. Nevertheless, I had completely forgotten how much fun it is to prepare a decent party with proper decorations and effort!
Rest of our friends arrived for dinner in the evening. We ate, drank and sang together, putting our strongest drinking song game on. As the night got darker we moved the party inside to the official party room, where we danced like crazy until 5am. Some time in the morning we even got to witness amazing fireworks right in our “home” harbor, and it indeed wasn’t just another amateur show but a spectacle worthy of thousands of euros at least.
Perfect ending for summer 2017.
