Instagram Plant Spy: the creative world of flower flat-lay

Have you heard of flat-lay? It’s all over Instagram right now, and it’s actually super simple to do. It’s just the action of laying out some materials neatly, and then taking the photo from above. The result is usually totally lovely, and attracts lots of likes!

You do have to be a little creative though, it’s not like you can just tumble a few items onto a wooden table and then take a snap. Check out the recent blog written by the ‘Leaf Queen of Instagram’, Silver Pebble.

When creating a flat-lay, take a bit of time to lay each item out nicely, and think of colour themes and flow too. Consider your background too. Rustic always does well! A similar method is ‘knolling’, again taken from above but with every item set out in regimented lines.

Why not have a go yourself- here’s 10 posts that should inspire you!

Feeling truly blessed after yesterday's amazing Mother's Day Pop Up with some sweet local vendors! We had a great turn out, thanks so much to everyone who came out and supported us! The shop will be closed this week to recover from Mother's Day, plan future pop-ups (they are coming), and work on a massive wedding! If you need any custom orders, flowers or plants feel free to reach me via email. I'll be in and out of the shop all week and will happily meet with you if you need something. Online delivery is still available! Thanks again for the amazing support, you guys make doing what I do truly special! 💕 . . . #asseenincolumbus #614florist #columbuspopup #ohioflorist #midwestflorist #midwestweddings #flatlayflowers #columbusohio
