hellomagazine.com

Breakfast is, they say, the most inportant meal of the day. And Jessica Alba, Millie Mackintosh, Chrissy Teigen and Fearne Cotton have all been showing fans how it's done with the tempting breaky photos they share on social media. If you fancy spoiling yourself, take inspiration from what they're serving and being served in the morning – runny scrambled eggs, garlic-roasted bacon, American-style pancakes, avocado on toast and spicy oats – and find out how to take the perfect early-morning foodie snap.

US fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur teamed up with Hilton Hotels to create tips for the perfect breakfast-in-bed selfie:

1. Think about the colour story, for example if serving a fresh bowl of fruit, choose to accentuate the red of the strawberry by adding matching florals or a few accoutrements in a similar shade

2. Keep all the attention on the food

3. Add some pretty accoutrements, such as cloth napkins, mini spoons and knifes for butter and jams and silver pots for coffee or tea

4. If using a bed tray it must not only be stylish and beautiful, but practical as well

5. Who doesn’t love flowers? A single stem in a small vase or a cute little bouquet in a jar

6. Choose food that appeals to all the senses

7. Lighting is crucial! Place the tray as close to the natural light source


8. Opt for natural light and not flash photography. Natural light helps to create a much softer, more inviting look and feel

9. When it comes to sheets, make sure they are white to make the food and accents pop. Also its important to ruffle the sheets to make it look slept in
