Books is generally the most often given and received gift along with food. Eve and I found this beautiful rainbow pasta from Italy at Blue Table in Calabasas.
After the gift exchange we moved into the kitchen and family room to get ready for brunch. We bought some beautiful orange tulips on our way over that were the perfect accessory for the table. As you can see from the photos, the Neuhart house is big on really bright, bold color...especially orange.
Although normally we are told to just bring ourselves, this year we contributed olive bread and homemade lemon poppyseed.
The "big gift" for Eve this year was a twin lens reflex Mamiya camera from 1970, which auspiciously is the same era of the bright green vintage dress she wore that day.
