1. Hang Unique Outdoor Pendant Lamps

Unique outdoor pendant lamps are the key to creating a beautiful focal point over your dining table. Hanging lamps made out of punched metal or rattan materials gives the space an inviting, global inspired vibe. Break up the display by combining pendant lamps of different shapes and sizes.

2. Add a Succulent Planter Centerpiece

Succulents are a versatile centerpiece no matter your preferred outdoor style. Plant your own succulents in pots or purchase a pre-made succulent planter to fit your table. An added bonus of succulent planter centerpieces is that they’re low in height, leaving you plenty of visual space to interact with your guests while dining.

3. Set the Table with Neutral Place Settings

Global inspired style doesn’t necessarily have to equal bright, bold colors. Neutral colors and natural elements create a different, lived-in mood. Set your table with white or cream melamine plates complimented by burlap trimmed napkins and stemless wine glasses (plastic is the best option for outdoor entertaining). If you prefer goblets, simply select ones with low stems like these plastic beauties.

4. Select a Rectangular Outdoor Dining Table

When you select your outdoor dining table a rectangular shape is a classic choice. Not only does it provide ample space for guests but it also allows you to switch up your seating options by mixing chairs and benches. To add to your global inspired style, we love a table made with mixed materials like this stylish stone-top table by Smith & Hawken at Target.
