Nature in the Home - Christmas week 1

I'm a bit annoyed this morning.  I bought some ruby red sprigs of winter Ilex from the florist especially for this post.  Arranged them beautifully, and as it's such a grey day I have candles lit, and the whole thing looks wonderful.  BUT my camera has run out of battery and I can't find the flipping charger!!! It's not where I left it (in the messy crap drawer in the Kitchen!) GRRRRR

So, here is an image of the Ilex I bought last Christmas.  Same, same but different. I do love Ilex.  The berries stay on forever.  This particular bunch lasted for over a month without the berries dropping off. Value for money, I like that.

Edit - I found the charger!  Here is the right image:

Anyway, enough of me ranting.  How did you?  Last week I set the task for the four weeks running up to Christmas...

Week 1 - A table centre piece (a jar of greenery, a simple sprig?)
Week 2 - Garlands, something for the wall.
Week 3 - Wreath (indoors or Outdoors)
Week 4 - The Tree!

Week 1 of Christmas Nature in the Home, home... excited!  Please # your instagrams and twitter with #natureinthehome so we can all find it.  And remember to pin your creation to the pinboard too!

Don't forget, if you have made a super cute Advent Calendar, please add it to my advent link up.
