TIP OF THE DAY: Plan An Apple Picking Party

How can you entertain without having to tidy up the house?

Head off premises: go to the nearest apple orchard.

It’s a winning way to spend an afternoon with friends and family; you’ll enjoy the fresh air, exercise and new opportunities to bond in a beautiful orchard. Then there’s the bonus of taking home the fruit of your labors (pun intended).

In case the weather isn’t great on the day of your event, pick a rain date. And if it’s still raining, have a Plan B: Find an activity that can be done at home, like Pictionary. Order in pizza and have a bowl full of apples as a consolation prize.

But let’s plan for good weather:


  • Look online to find an apple orchard that lets you pick your own. Check to see if they have picnic facilities (most do).
  • Tell everyone to dress in layers and wear shoes that are suitable for uneven and damp terrain. Bring a cap, scarf and gloves to be on the safe side.
  • Plan a picnic spread. In addition to cold drinks, include a thermos of herbal tea or soup in case the group gets chilly.
  • Establish a carpool plan.
  • Send a confirmation to all participants, including departure time and driving instructions.
  • Invite people to bring their favorite apple recipe, with enough copies for all the adults.
    And have a terrific time!
