It’ll make you want to rummage through your photo archive for your favorite photos.
Use them as kitchen décor
Print your food buy cialis online shots and show them off in simple white frames. You can print them in the same sizes and line them up in a pretty row, or mix large blow-ups with smaller photos and cluster them.
Make a food mini-album or scrapbook
Scrapbooks aren’t just for family photos! Why not make a list of ‘Our Favorite Family Restaurants’ or ‘Thanksgiving Dinners” or ‘My Favorite Desserts’ and then write down your memories and reflections in the journaling tags. The food shots then become a slice (pun intended) of your life.
Make a heritage cook book
Take photos of the best recipes of your family: Grandma’s apple pie, Aunt Libby’s potato salad, your husband’s grilled steaks, your molten chocolate cake, etc. Then, with a simple publishing software, you can layout those photos and those recipes, and then print and bind them. Voila, you have your own cookbook which your children will definitely treasure forever. Or, you can even make multiple copies (many photo printing stores will make custom-made digital scrapbooks) and give them away to your family members for Christmas.
Use them for invitations
Planning an elegant dinner party or a ladies’ brunch? Your invitation could feature a photo of the dish you will be serving, and the menu underneath. Or add a witty line, like ‘A taste of things to come.’
Make them into blank cards
We all need blank cards, and usually buy them from a stationary store. But why not have yours custom-printed, and then showcase a favorite food photo?
Make a kitchen calendar
You’ll find plenty of websites that let you customize and print calendars. Why not use your food shots to create a truly personalized and inspiring calendar to hang in your kitchen?
Turn them into marketing collaterals
says that your cakes are so good you should sell them… well, maybe you should! Home-based baking businesses are great, and less risky than others (you already own all the equipment, and you don’t need to additional ‘rent’ for your kitchen). Marketing collaterals are also quite easy to make with desktop publishing software. You can make calling cards, brochures, flyers—and adding a food shot will entice customers far more than a product description.
