Fika between floors
“Fika” is a popular daily practice for Swedes: a cup of coffee, a sweet baked treat and a good friend – everything you need to enjoy the moment. Invite the neighbours in your building to a monthly fika on the communal staircase. Bring something yummy to share and enjoy watching your community grow.
Time of day: Afternoon
Duration: 3 hours
Engage with your neighbours for a communal fika.
Meeting your neighbours in a common area improves a sense of togetherness and promotes everyone’s respect for the shared space. Sharing drinks and food is a nice way to connect across families and generations – no matter how small or simple it might be.
- Choose a day every month to enjoy fika with your neighbours.
- Prepare a HÄLSA steel vacuum flask of hot coffee. Put pastries and cookies in small OFTAST bowls that are easy to pass around the staircase.
- Place the bowls on a FRAMKALLA tray with extra FÄRGRIK mugs for sharing.
- Meet on the staircase to welcome new families and enjoy the company of neighbours you already know.
