I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been bitten by the flat lay bug quite recently, thanks to all the beautiful flat lays on my Instagram feed. Heck, I even followed @flatlays on Instagram, which is an account for everything flat lay. It’s impossible not to get hooked!
I love seeing all those fashion flat lays, but I have a particular obsession for food flat lays (probably because I love food) so most of my flat lays are food related. I think it’s a chic way of taking photos of your food, plus it’s super fun. Makes cooking a whole lot more enjoyable because it’s like playing dress up – but with food. Nothing more fun than mixing and matching the food I cook with plates and napkins! Hehe #foodiealert.
Here are some of my food flat lay photos that I shared on my Instagram. I get a lot of ideas and inspirations from my favourite foodie flat lay accounts (@tenthousandthspoon, @thepinkdiary, @dreamy_touch and @crazystylelove). Some of them are either photographers or stylists, so that explains their crazy awesome flat lays. Makes me want to take food styling class or something!
This food flat lay thing has also made me go crazy over dinnerware and serveware – something I had never even bothered to think about before. So now plates, bowls, tea sets, mugs, trays, spoons, napkins, tea towels and placemats have been added to my list of shopping obsessions, along with clothes, shoes and bags (God, help my husband). Haha.
In case you’re wondering, I get most of my serveware from Daiso (my ultimate source because everything so cheappp), Aino Living, H&M Home and Ikea. I can spend hourssss in these shops. Oh, the woman I’ve turned into!
