If you want a nice balance between natural, relaxed and glamorous, set the table with Moonbeam melamine dinnerware. The best part is being able to mix and match the plates and pasta bowls, which comes in black or gold, in either a ‘ring’ or polka-dotted border.

Colorful Farm-Style Feast: Bistro

When we found out Alyssa Ponticello from Runway Chef created this country-style table setting in her LA home, we were astounded — this look could’ve easily been inside a luxury farmhouse somewhere in New England.

To achieve this farm-style Friendsgiving setting, set the table with Bistro and choose an assortment of bright fall flowers that correspond well with the dinnerware colors.

Alyssa recommends getting something red, something yellow, something neutral/pale green (eucalyptus, wheat, cotton stalks) and a grey/purple flower (lavender). Of course, a nice fresh butternut squash salad also adds to that farmhouse feel. Remember: Country decor is all about comfort and charm!
