Feast for the eyes
Written by Iris Dijkers
Summer nights mean only one thing here at Primark: Alfresco dining. So with the team in Mykonos we simply had to ask Iris Dijkers, from A Dash Of Fash fame, to style up our dining table for a very special meal. Need some inspiration for your park picnic, roof terrace or dining table? Allow Iris to show you the light, literally.
As you may already know I love interior styling. I’m always changing up my home with small accessories like pillows, candles and strings of lights. So in Mykonos I was delighted to do something similar and create a fun environment for our dinner party. To start the table styling I created a mood board. I wanted to create a Midsummer’s Night look and feel with a lot of lights and botanicals to create a romantic vibe. Luckily Primark had plenty to fit in with this mood.
My favourite part was using so many fairy lights, this worked especially well as we were eating at night, after dark. I layered three rows of light strings down the middle of the table, and added bells jars filled with tiny lights too. Clusters of mini succulents, candles and lights were repeated across the table.When I was finished I couldn't wait to show the table to the rest of the girls and I was happy to receive a lot of positive feedback. We had a lovely evening and this little project definitely inspired me to do more interior styling.
