The holiday’s are such a special time of year. We are having Thanksgiving at my parent’s house in Hingham and the whole crew will be in attendance. I’m particularly excited this year because it’s my daughter Madigan's first Thanksgiving and we can’t wait to share some of our favorite traditions with her. Here’s a peek at how I plan to spend my day and how I’ll style some of my favorite Alice Walk pieces from morning through evening!
To start the day, I will be taking a walk through World’s End in Hingham, a beautiful oceanside park that was originally designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (same architect that designed Central Park). This is one of my favorite places and one that holds a lot of special memories for me. I’ve been coming here on walks with my family since I was a young girl and it is also where my husband, Chris, proposed to me! One other fun fact - Word's End was one of the proposed sites for the United Nations before NYC was chosen. We’ve loved sharing this beautiful spot with Madigan and continuing the family tradition of walking here every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning!
In the afternoon, I plan on grabbing some last minute produce from Holly Hill Farm which is right around the corner from my house. I love supporting local businesses - especially ones that are really involved in the community - and Holly Hill Farm has been a favorite since moving down to the South Shore.
In the late afternoon, I’ll get dressed for the evening and head over to my parent’s house to help with the cooking. My favorite part of the meal is the apple cheese torte - my mom has an amazing recipe that I’ve shared below. We always kick off the Thanksgiving meal with a cocktail or glass of champagne to celebrate all that we are grateful for.
