But it all went terribly wrong - or fantastically wrong, depending on how you look at it.

Her colleague revealed all in a message to a friend who later posted the exchange on Twitter.

You see, she didn't know it until they arrived, but she'd actually ordered two live reindeer.

The message read: "Best thing at work happened today. Our receptionist ordered 2 reindeer for xmas dectoration (sic) for the office.

"She only went and ordered 2 real ones accidentally!

"We have them parked up in our bike shed outside."

Felicity, who had tweeted the hilarious gaffe, then provided an update to those interested, saying: "the reindeer people picked Dancer and Prancer up last night. Not left parked up in bike shed overnight."

Talk about a bad day at the office - or an absolutely amazing one.
