Sometimes, intentional blurring of the background and the accompanying surreal impact brought about by the shallow depth of field might invest ordinary objects with an otherworldly aspect. My favourite settings for a deliberate blurring of the background includes and f-stop / aperture of 5.6, or less accompanied by an ISO setting of 100 to 200. Depending on the light conditions, you might opt for a shutter speed of 125 to 500, depending on the lighting. I used natural sunlight as using a flashlight was a strict no because most of the miniature objects that I photographed were made of glass or crystal. I guess you could do a little bit or trial and error experiments with the shutter speed. The Camera I used for the shots below is a Canon 1100-D DSLR.

The Eifel Tower in Delhi- NCR
Breaking rules, I used the following settings, f-29, speed 1/200, ISO-800, focal length-36 mm, and yes, I used a flash since the object was made of metal and I was shooting into the sun.
