Embracing the season of eating outdoors
It’s the season – move activities out in the open air! Even if city living and work limit your choices, long evenings offer plenty of time to gather friends. Maybe an improvised party?
Seek out a spot, set up a camp
Once you’ve decided on a place to meet up at, turning it into a party venue takes little effort. Each group of guests bring their share of seating, decorations and food, and suddenly you have a celebration at hand.
All the food and drink you can carry
With a bit of prepping, there’s little more than transportation left. Keep food containers close together to preserve the temperature from the fridge for longer. For delicate foods, serve standing on ice packs.
A surprisingly picnic-friendly menu
A late-summer happening for Scandinavians is the yearly crayfish party. Served pre-cooked and chilled with few accompaniments, they make an ideal choice for a bring-along meal anywhere.
Cosiness stays in, unwanted guests out
Nightfall may also attract less desirable crowds. Hang a mosquito net to keep them out. Add some mood lighting, and your bubble of cosy comfort will be complete.
