Feast For The Eyes
Written by Iris Dijkers
Summer nights mean one thing here at Primark: Alfresco dining. So with the team in Mykonos, we just had to ask Iris Dijkers from A Dash Of Fash to style up our dining table for a super special meal. Need some inspo for your park picnic, roof deck or dining table? Let Iris show you the light – literally!
You might already know this, but I LOVE interior styling. I’m always changing up my space with accessories like pillows, candles and strings of lights. So in Mykonos I was excited to do something similar and create a fun setting for our dinner party. To start the styling, I created a mood board. I wanted to create a Midsummer’s Night vibe, with romantic feels: lots of lights and botanicals. Luckily Primark had plenty to fit the mood!
My fave part? Using so many fairy lights – perfect since we were eating after dark. I layered up three rows of light strings down the middle of the table, and added bell jars filled with teeny lights too. Clusters of mini succulents, candles and lights were repeated across the table. When it was all finished, I couldn't wait to show off the table to the rest of the girls! So good to get lots of positive feedback. We had a great time, and this little project def gave me the inspo to do more styling.
