Scandinavians like celebrating, but don't call it a party. That word is too formal for their warm and cozy approach, according to author Melissa Bahen. Whether you are of Scandinavian heritage or just want to get a little Scandinavian style in your life, Bahen has literally written the book on it. Titled "Scandinavian Gatherings From Afternoon Fika to Midsummer Feast" the book features gorgeous photos, idea for entertaining, recipes and more.
We caught up with Melissa to learn about what makes these gatherings so special around the holidays. You can find Scandinavian Gatherings on Amazon as well as in bookstores.
