As we head in to summer, our thoughts here at Bell and Blue are turning to spending some quality time in the garden.  Eating and drinking alfresco makes everything taste much better doesn’t it!  And when the sun goes down, don’t feel like you have to head straight indoors!  Our gorgeous new Hurricane Lamps will light your garden perfectly and ensure that you’re the envy of all of your friends for having the most stylish garden around! 

And when Summer turns in to Autumn, bring them inside for the cosiest nights in, snuggled up on the sofa. 

With glass on all sides and a chic simple antique copper metal frame, our metal lanterns are perfect for lighting up the darkest night.

And why not try a delicious Peach Bellini to enjoy in your super stylish garden….
