Pick-your-own hen party


Now the sun's come out, make the most of our indian summer by getting outdoors and enjoying the last of the summer sun. Buy seasonal fruit and veg from your farmers market and support the local farmers.

A great idea for a seasonal hen party is to plan an outing to a pick-your-own farm. Picking strawberries, raspberries and other fruit can be great fun if there's a group of you. Or you could go wild and take a hike into the countryside to pick blackberries from the hedgerows - it looks like a great blackberry year this year.

Take a picnic and make a day of it. Come home and have a jam making session with your friends. The jars of home made jam can be covered with pretty tops and labelled with your own designed logo and given to your wedding guests on the day.
