A Simple Advent Spiral and Centrepiece…

Yesterday, being the 4th Sunday before Christmas, we walked our Advent spiral, Richard and Jenna collected a wheelbarrow of sand and Jen created the most wonderful spiral. An old little tree stump was added to the centre for our candle and rose quartz was placed at it base. It really did look so effective on the green grass… We had plenty of rain yesterday but it did stop for at least an hour in the evening and we quickly took our lanterns and walked through our spiral and then out again, enjoying the process…

This is our simple Advent centrepiece, we have used our birthday cake board, inspired by Sarah’s lovely blog they have the most amazing cake board. I think this will be the beginning of another family tradition to use this board for Advent as well as birthdays, it just adds to the flow of the year and continuity, I love it:) I haven’t decorated it too much, sometimes less does seem like more, don’t you think?

I have surrounded the outer edge with rosemary branches and I have placed crystals and gemstones in the centre to celebrate our mineral kindgom for this first week of Advent…


Last night we lit the first candle while we ate dinner together, the glow was wonderful…
I light a candle on the wreath all made of holly green
For rocks and bones and shining stones
One candle now is seen
We await on earth the holy birth, and upon the boughs of green.
Our hopes arise with every flame, one candle now is seen!

Happy Advent to all…
