It’s hard to beat classic IKEA meatballs, but this holiday season IKEA is serving up something extra special: their JULBORD, a traditional Swedish holiday smörgåsbord as part of their holiday celebrations. The best part? It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet and it’s Canada-wide, so everyone can get in on the feast! Before you dine, you can also check out the their Vintersaga collection, featuring holiday favourites like their Ginger Thin cookie tins, limited edition advent calendars and more.
